"Since I'm a vegetarian, I love these broiled sandwiches," reports Karen Mello of Fairhaven, Massachusetts. "Even non-vegetarians like their fresh taste," she assures. The veggie-topped muffin halves make a great snack or quick lunch and are priced at only 8¢ a serving.
"These carrot patties were a big hit with my children when they were growing up," reports Phyllis Moody of King William, Virginia. Cornflakes provide the taste that kids find so appealing, while the low price—just 18¢ a burger—makes them attractive to parents.
The idea of onion muffins came from a friend of ours who ate onion sandwiches every day. I felt they needed some extra flavor, so I experimented and came up with some simple additions. These muffins make a delicious lunch, which I find men and children especially enjoy.

These sandwiches are a delicious, dressed-up version of the traditional favorite. The pocket of melted mozzarella or provolone cheese and a crisp crumb coating give these hot sandwiches a tasty twist.—Vera Ambroselli, Lehigh Acres, Florida
In McCook, Nebraska, Iola Egle makes batches of fun-filled sandwiches to freeze for a few weeks' worth of brown-bag lunches. "They taste so fresh you would never know they were ever frozen," she reports. "The marmalade flavor in this hearty combination really shines through."
Cinnamon and sugar spice up the fun sandwiches that Eunice Bralley makes for breakfast or a snack, "Since we have plenty of apple trees, I often use homemade applesauce," reports the Thornville, Ohio cook. "But the store-bought kind tastes almost as good."
My husband and I have two sons, ages 5 and 3. With our demanding careers, main dishes like this one that can be prepared in a flash are essential for us. I always have the ingredients for this recipe on hand. Cooking the rice and shredding the cheese the night before save precious minutes at dinnertime.
