Two types of cheese on top of a savory crab mixture make these open-faced sandwiches ooey-gooey good! I usually serve them for dinner, but they make a great app when cut in half. —Donna Bennett, Bramalea, Ontario
Writes Merrijane Rice from Bountiful, Utah, “Inspired by a delicious turkey salad sandwich at a local deli, I developed my own version to suit my family's tastes. Serve this on croissants for an elegant luncheon or on hearty whole-grain bread for a filling meal. Pre-cooked bacon and canned-or leftover-turkey make it a snap to prepare!”
“I had purchased some vegetarian chicken patties…but had no idea how to serve them. This recipe, an impromptu creation on a busy weeknight, turned out so well…my husband never knew it wasn't 'real' chicken! Good for vegetarian friends.”

People like the melding of melted cheese, juicy meat and crunchy bread in this main dish. I suggest varying the taste of my sandwiches by occasionally substituting a different cheesefor example, cheddarfor the mozzarella and adding pepperoni for more zest.Heidi Doudna, Fairbanks, Alaska
When you live where temperatures easily climb to 100° or more in the summer, you look for recipes that get you in and out of the kitchen in minutes. This luscious sandwich, with its cool Waldorf salad filling, is a breeze to prepare.

Pita bread is the crust for these single-serving pizzas that get Mediterranean flair from olives, spinach and feta cheese. Breadsticks and a wedge of iceberg lettuce drizzled with salad dressing (pictured above right) make fine pizza partners. Or serve an appetizer of fresh vegetables with dip, then cap off the meal with lemon Italian ice.
"Since pizza is a big favorite with my teenagers, I like to keep these crispy snacks on hand," says Ruby Williams of Bogalusa, Louisiana. "Loaded with toppings, they go right from the freezer to the oven with little time and effort. And they're always a hit."
We like to roast turkey throughout the year because we enjoy the leftovers. Several years ago, while nibbling on a fresh Waldorf salad and some cold turkey, I decided to combine the two. This pita was an instant hit.

From Clarissa Jo Seeger in Columbiana, Ohio : “So quick and a great party sandwich, these roll-ups get raves at tail-gating parties! Serve in thin slices for appetizers or ‘Rreubenize’ them: substitute corned beef, sauerkraut, caraway seeds and Thousand Island dressing.”
