Barbecued Hamburgers

Barbecued Hamburgers

When I got married, I asked my Aunt Jean for this recipe. It was her creation and she always hamburgers in this way for family picnics in the summer and the occasional church dish dinner. I like them because they have a great taste and are very moist.

"This is an extremely quick and very tasty pizza that my family loves," says Jennifer Zukiwsky of Glendon, Alberta. "It's a bit different because you use buttermilk biscuits instead of pizza dough. It makes enough for a large family and is great for company."

Instead of plain tuna salad sandwiches, I fix this creamy tuna mixture, which includes crunchy apples. Then I put it on a crisp English muffin half with triangle tortilla chips sticking out to look like the sails of a ship.—Judy Archuleta, Escalon, California

Fun Fish Sandwiches

Fun Fish Sandwiches

Kids will love these cute fish sandwiches, confirms Carolyn Schmeling of Brookfield, Wisconsin. And they’re such a cinch to shape, using a fish-shaped cookie cutter. If some of your party guests are picky eaters, cut out fish-shaped peanut butter and jelly sandwiches instead.

Janelle Aguda of Chicago, Illinois gets her son involved in this sea-cruising cuisine by having him assemble the simple sails out of cheese slices. They like to serve the “boats” on blue paper plates with fish-shaped crackers.

We were experimenting one night and came up with these tasty cheese-filled Family-Friendly Stuffed Cheeseburgers. Our kids and neighbors fell in love with them. They're so good that we often don't add any condiments.—Alethea Osborne, Florence, Kentucky

Christmas Tree Sandwiches

Christmas Tree Sandwiches

Christmas Tree Sandwiches

Plain peanut butter and jelly sandwiches take on new shape in the hands of subscriber Flo Burtnett of Gage, Oklahoma! To make her fun versions, she cut frozen bread slices with a tree-shaped cookie cutter, poked holes into one slice so the jelly would show through, then put together the sandwiches. "By the time you've finished, the bread's thawed and ready for eating," she notes.

Spooky Joes

Spooky Joes

Dressing up an old favorite for the occasion, I made hearty Spooky Joes, served open-faced so everyone could see slices of cheese cut into Halloween shapes topping the beef. The sandwiches were accompanied by orange cheese curls and jack-o-lantern Jell-O jigglers.
