These tender sandwiches will surely become the talk of any get-together. Helen Hassler of Denver, Pennsylvania hollows out sourdough baguettes before filling them with cucumber, cheese and marinated lamb and artichokes. Simply delicious, the mouthwatering bites are perfect for a spring brunch.
I make these sandwiches for showers, weddings, and special family events. I got the recipe from a friend many years ago while attending the wedding of their daughter. They are so delicious, you can't stop at just one.

"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."
I made this hearty bread for a golf outing my husband attended and received many compliments. Several men asked for the recipe, and they've told me they make it often. It makes a good appetizer or sandwich for lunch. —Lorelei Hull, Luling, Louisiana
My husband and I can’t get enough of this great supper sandwich. The cheese-covered tomato slices top off the mild tuna salad deliciously. Sometimes, I replace the tuna with canned salmon, ham, chicken or turkey. How could something so good be so easy?
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.

This recipe has a real kick and is one of my husband's favorites. It's ready in a flash, is easily doubled and it's the closest thing to restaurant buffalo wings I've ever tasted in a "light" version. If you don't like blue cheese, substitute reduced-fat cheddar. —Jennifer Beck, Meridian, Idaho
