“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.”

"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."
Grilled cheese is a go-to meal in our family for an after-school snack, quick lunch, and even a fun treat on ski trips. These sandwiches are just a grown-up version of something we all love. —Cherylin Birkholz, Marysville, California
There's nothing like the first bite of this sandwich. A crisp buttery exterior gives way to creamy dilled cheese and fresh mushrooms. My friend said she never liked grilled cheese until she tried mine! —Judith Politzer, Burton, Ohio
The idea for this unique sandwich was inspired by a light eggplant dish I made for hot summer evenings. I decided to use the golden eggplant slices as a base for sandwiches. My family goes wild for the delicious combination of toppings.
