As girls, my sisters and I always helped our mother make these hearty melted cheese sandwiches. Served with a robust tomato sauce for dipping, they made a quick, nutritious lunch or dinner. Nowadays, I prepare them for my husband and our two teen sons here on Long Island.
"This recipe is great for a game day, either at a tail-gate party or at home," suggests Susan Graham of Cherokee, Iowa. "I often make up the meat mixture ahead of time and add the sour cream when I reheat it just before serving."
These classic creations are bound to please even the biggest sandwich fan. Plus, they come together quickly with deli meats, packaged sliced cheese and bottled salad dressing.—Debbie Brunssen, Randolph, Nebraska
Delicious seafood sandwiches are as close as your cupboard using canned crabmeat and shrimp. Arlene Kroll of Vero Beach, Florida adds fresh parsley, lemon juice and Dijon mustard to give these noontime sandwiches a fresh taste.
My husband and I can’t get enough of this great supper sandwich. The cheese-covered tomato slices top off the mild tuna salad deliciously. Sometimes, I replace the tuna with canned salmon, ham, chicken or turkey. How could something so good be so easy?
