On rainy days when we need comfort food in a hurry, I toast sandwiches of cinnamon raisin bread with white cheddar, apple and red onion. They also taste great made with olive oil and vegan cheese! —Kathy Patalsky, New York, New York
I once taught an adult program called Eating Smart for Seniors. For that class, I developed many recipes for one or two people that were simple to prepare and used common ingredients.—Terri Brown, Darien, Wisconsin
“My family loves these quick-to-fix sandwiches,” says Rhonda Beckett, who makes them with two kinds of bread and two kinds of cheese. TIP: “I serve them with tomato-vegetable soup and milk for a wholesome nutritious meal,” notes the Independence, Missouri cook.
