This is the cookout recipe that will have everyone talking. The secret is mixing a creamy, spreadable cheese into the turkey patties. It gives them a rich taste without overpowering the burger. —Nancee Melin, Tucson, Arizona
Spiedis (pronounced "speedeez") are a type of grilled meat sandwich considered a local specialty. This recipe is my own, but there are many variations in our area. In nearby Binghamton, Spiedi-Fest is held on August, featuring this delicious dish made of all different kinds of meat. Thousands of people attend. I hope you enjoy my pork version.

"THESE delicious sandwiches taste even better if the pork is prepared a day ahead for the flavors to blend. We welcomed Mother's pork sandwiches for any occasion, but especially for our birthday celebration. We never wanted Mother to change that menu!"
During the summer months, our three children keep me plenty busy. So it's a welcome relief when my husband volunteers to cook out. These chicken sandwiches are his specialty! —Claire Batherson, Westchester, Illinois
MY HUSBAND and I are retired ranchers—so beef is a frequent favorite main dish at our house.
I've even written my own beef cookbook based on recipes that I've collected through the years.
Everyone enjoys these hearty, tasty sandwiches that can be made for two—or any size group. —Margery Bryan
