Diploma Sandwiches Recipe

Fun for a graduate's party, these easy sandwiches can be made ahead and chilled. Thinly sliced ham, turkey, beef and cheese are other options for the filling. I've also used halves of 6-inch tortillas to make smaller "diplomas." —Sue Ross, Casa Grande, Arizona

"I love this idea. I used chopped chicken and cream cheese mixed together, instead of chicken salad already prepared."

"For a vegetarian filling, I used cream cheese mixed with finely diced carrots, celery, onion, red & green peppers, chives, and parsley. I also used flour tortillas rather than bread, and just trimmed the edges. They were the hit of the party!"

"Great idea! All these recipes came out after graduation- in Texas we have HS graduation in May. I would try this recipe using flour tortillas."
