My husband and I enjoy Monte Cristos so much that I created this non-fried version to cut down on fat. The addition of orange peel and pecans makes these beautiful sandwiches absolutely delicious! —Mary Shivers, Ada, Oklahoma
This is not your ordinary sandwich! Agnes Ward of Stratford, Ontario writes, “everyone likes the combination of chutney and chopped peanuts. I like to make this when I have company in the afternoon or at night after a game of cards.”
"This is a wonderful sandwich for family meals or parties," writes Sue Ann O'Buck of Sinking Spring, Pennsylvania. Once the meat is browned, the mixture simmers for just 10 minutes, so it's perfect for spur-of-the-moment backyard picnics.
For a change of pace, Rick suggests swapping out the green pepper in these tasty sloppy joes for an Anaheim, if available. Long and lighter green in color than a bell pepper, Anaheim peppers have just a hint of a bite. —Rick Bolte, Montclair, California
My husband enjoys these grilled turkey burgers with their herb flavor and garden-fresh garnish. They make an ideal summer sandwich or in-hand meal for when we're on the run. —Trina Hopsecger, Elkhart, Indiana
Celery and blue cheese dressing help tame the hot sauce on these juicy burgers. For an even lighter version, pass on the buns and serve with lettuce leaves, sliced onion and chopped tomato. —Mary Pax-Shipley, Bend, Oregon
