When I make this bread, I almost always have to bake two loaves so that everyone gets a taste!
It's especially good in the winter. In fact, last year when we went to a Christmas buffet at my husband's aunt's house—with a hearty soup as the main course—I took a Reuben Loaf along. It looks so pretty sliced and arranged on a platter, too.
My husband and I are crop farmers with three young children. Cooking—especially baking—is one of the ways I relax, and I also enjoy sewing.
"I dreamed up these cheese- and vegetable-stuffed burgers for a family barbecue years ago," recalls veteran cook Betty Canoles of Atascadero, California. "They're delicious grilled or pan-fried. You bite into a surprise."
Guests who have sweet expectations are in for a savory surprise when they sample warm slices of this golden wreath. Made with no-fuss pizza crust, the sandwich ring is packed with turkey, cheese, red pepper and green onions.
As the mother of teenagers, I strive to find meals they like but that require little work on my part. I get many requests for these Italian-style hamburgers...I make them monthly. - Amy LaPointe, North Fond du Lac, Wisconsin
While the soup simmers, Jo assembles tasty Mozzarella Tuna Melts. "Our daughter's home economics teacher shared the recipe for these all-American favorites," she notes.
Using a mini food processor to chop the celery and onion for the filling helps shave preparation time. Then Jo just pops the sandwiches in the oven.
These burgers are a twist on the traditional backyard favorite. A dollop of dill and horseradish dressing gives extra bite to this standard. They are made with lean ground beef to keep the fat content low, and includes grated carrots and chopped fresh mushrooms to sneak in some veggies.—Deb Anderson, Joplin, Missouri
Want to branch out from traditional grilled cheese sandwiches? Make 'em festive with cute winter-themed cutters like pine trees or mittens. Try these with whole wheat bread and sourdough if it better suits your family's tastes. —Taste of Home Test Kitchen
"I've experimented with many combinations of ingredients to make a good meatless burger...and this is our favorite," says Pat Whitaker, Alsea, Oregon. "These patties cook up golden brown and crispy and make delicious sandwiches."
"What screams summer more than grilled hot dogs?" asks Maria Regakis of Somerville, Massachusetts. She places hot dogs in buns before topping them with a zesty cheese sauce and grilling them in a double layer of foil.
