Just try convincing your guests that a recipe this scrumptious is healthier, too. These moist, monster burgers are packed with veggies, cheese and loads of great grilled flavor. —Mary Cannataro, Chicago, Illinois
This colorful sandwich is a crisp golden-brown on the outside, with a fresh-tasting, full-flavored filling the whole family will love. It's supper in 10 minutes flat!

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 copied this delightful recipe when I was in Italy visiting my Aunt Elsa. The refreshing sandwich filling is nicely flavored with oregano and mint. I like it tucked into chewy pita bread. —Marcia Fuller, Sheridan, Montana
Caramelized onions, mushrooms and two types of cheese make these my favorite sandwiches. I invented them for a last-minute picnic by combining items I had on hand. They've been a hit ever since.
-Lynda Clark of Spokane, Washington
When it comes to food, I'm all about anything in a pocket—pita bread, bierocks, empanadas and more. These Italian-inspired turnovers are great for dinner and even better the next day. For smaller ones, use a single crescent roll with a level tablespoon of filling.
Ground chicken is perked up with onion, chopped peanuts and carrots for these delectable chicken burgers that can be served year-round. As Betty Carr attests from Huntsville, Ohio, “These sandwiches may take a little more work than the regular burger, but the taste is worth it.”
Summer's ultimate sandwich offers a yin and yang of special flavors and casual presentation. The creamy spread and heart-healthy avocado will light up your taste buds. Everyone I've shared this sandwich recipe with makes it over and over again. —Debbie Speckmeyer, Lakewood, California
These pitas are a nice change of pace that pack a satisfying punch. Chicken, pecans and touches of honey and curry makes this festive favorite just as tasty when wrapped in tortillas or served over crisp greens.—Marilou Robinson, Portland, Oregon
