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.

For these everyday wraps, I combined the traditional Southern appetizer of jam and cream cheese on crackers and the turkey, apple and brie sandwiches we ate at my bridal luncheon. I like to sneak fresh spinach into all sorts of recipes because it has such a mild flavor. —Kim Beavers, North August, South Carolina
"Our daughter loves to help out in the kitchen, so I try to choose recipes that are easy to follow," relates Ruth Behm of Defiance, Ohio. Just six ingredients, including convenient salsa, create the zippy filling in these speedy burritos
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
The slow cooker makes these super sandwiches a snap to put together on a busy weeknight. You’d think I'd slaved over them all day! I like to serve them with a side of creamy coleslaw or corn on the cob. If you don't have soy sauce, you can use 1/4 cup of broth instead. —Megan Klimkewicz, Kaiser, Missouri
