On rainy days when we need comfort food in a hurry, I toast sandwiches of cinnamon raisin bread with white cheddar, apple and red onion. They also taste great made with olive oil and vegan cheese! —Kathy Patalsky, New York, New York

"While there were some concerned looks from my husband and teenage son while I was assembling these sandwiches, the end results are amazing! Ratings of "Best sandwich Ever" and "Oh my gosh, can I have another?" were heard from the dinner table. Warning, you WILL go through an entire loaf of cinnamon bread! Don't plan on any leftovers. The flavors in this sandwich are complex and blend beautifully. This is a new family favorite!"
