"I enjoy creating special dishes for my family and friends," writes Lupie Molinar from Tucson, Arizona. "Although I don't make sandwiches often, these attractive turnovers with their fresh-tasting filling are an exception."
- 2 cups broccoli florets
- 1-1/2 cups (6 ounces) shredded sharp cheddar cheese

- 1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley
- 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- Salt and pepper to taste

"It's ok. I think the filling could use a sauce. Maybe make a simple cheese sauce to go inside. I like the idea though."
