On hurried nights in Forked River, New Jersey, Amanda Lanuto makes short work of family supper (or lunch) with these hearty, colorful and easy-to-handle wraps. They’re so moist and chock-full of flavor, and they’re ready in just minutes!
In Oakdale, California, Tiffany Mouren uses a flavorful garlic spread to give Italian flair to her warm turkey sandwiches. Mozzarella cheese melted on top adds a fast final touch to the open-faced rolls.
"My mother-in-law and I are always dreaming up new sandwiches," reports Judy Benson of Capron, Illinois. "When we put these Thanksgiving leftovers between slices of sourdough bread, we knew we had a family favorite."
This tangy sandwich filling is so easy to prepare in the slow cooker, and it goes over well at gatherings large and small. I frequently take it to potlucks, and I'm always asked for my secret ingredient. —Marylou LaRue, Freeland, Michigan
These moist burgers get plenty of color and flavor from onion, zucchini and red pepper. I often make the mixture ahead of time and put it in the refrigerator. Later, after helping my husband with farm chores, I can put the burgers on the grill while whipping up a salad or side dish. —Sandy Kitzmiller, Unityville, Pennsylvania
We love burgers on the grill, but turkey burgers can be bland and beef burgers can be fatty. To create these burgers, I used a spice combination from a taco recipe and then tinkered with cheeses and different toppings. —Heather Byers, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
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
