These gooey grilled cheese sandwiches, subtly seasoned with garlic, taste great for lunch with sliced apples. And they're really fast to whip up, too. To save seconds, I soften the cream cheese in the microwave, then blend it with the rest of the ingredients in the same bowl. That makes cleanup a breeze.

An old favorite gets a Southwest twist in these savory sandwiches suggested by Emily Hockett (above with husband Van) of Federal Way, Washington. "I make grilled cheese often in summer when it's too hot to use the oven," she relates. "It is a nice light lunch or dinner."
