My husband and I enjoy Monte Cristos so much that I created this non-fried version to cut down on fat. The addition of orange peel and pecans makes these beautiful sandwiches absolutely delicious! —Mary Shivers, Ada, Oklahoma
EGG SALAD is a refreshing, tasty change from lunch meat or peanut butter sandwiches. The extra preparation time is worth the effort.
Everyone raves about this version with its added zip. It's the touch of mustard and lemon juice that does it.

For a casual meal, this fast and flavorful sandwich from Sue Bosek of Whittier, California can’t be beat. The tender chicken breasts are coated with seasoned bread crumbs and smothered in marinara sauce. Served on a hoagie, it’s a real treat!
Grilled indoors, this delightful sandwich can be enjoyed any time of year. “The honey-mustard dressing gives the chicken plenty of pizzazz, and the apple and pecans lend a lively crunch,” notes Lisa Huff of Birmingham, Alabama.
This pork burger recipe is a favorite of ours. We had a similar burger in Hawaii and once home, I experimented and came up with this tasty version that we actually prefer to the original. I like to serve them with a salad or fresh corn on the cob. —Trisha Kruse, Eagle, Idaho
My family loves these sandwiches and they are very easy to prepare. Fresh basil, tangy Italian dressing and melted cheese meld perfectly together in this simple sandwich. —Betty Snoddy, Franklin, Missouri
Why heat up the kitchen on warm Indian summer evenings when you can take dinner in hand with these hearty chicken pitas from Lynne Ziegler in Odenton, Maryland?
LYNNE’S TIP: I also roll up the chicken strips in flour tortillas and serve as grab-and-go wrap sandwiches. Serve any leftover chicken with mixed greens and the last of the garden tomatoes in lunch salads the next day.
