“My husband often orders patty melts at restaurants, so I started fixing them at home,” says Leah Zimmerman of Ephrata, Pennsylvania. “I added horseradish to give them more zip, and now he loves them my way.”
“I love grilling chicken because it's a healthier choice,” shares Joe Slate from Port St. Joe, Florida. “I put my 'Joe-style' twist on this sandwich with a spicy-sweet marinade and a homemade blue cheese dressing.”
Terrific alone or with soup or salad, this savory sandwich has a sweet raisin crust and a mouthwatering ham-turkey-Swiss filling. “This is a little different from the typical grilled sandwich, My mother made it for dinner one evening, and I’ve loved it ever since,” says Lisa Davey of Columbus, Ohio.

When one of my favorite lunch spots closed, this recipe let me hold on to more than just good memories. The peas, bacon and cheese are such a fun and springy combo. I make big batches of the salad for parties—turns out I'm not the only fan! —Merrijane Rice, Kaysville, Utah
Busy Fogelsville, Pennsylvania cook Constance Eddy writes, This tangy sauce freezes well and is even better when it's reheated. "It's great on hot dogs, too! You can also fix it ahead...and keep it warm in the slow cooker if you make a larger amount for picnic or party fare."
"Barley adds another dimension to an old-fashioned hamburger," says Rosella Peters of Gull Lake, Saskatchewan. "My husband, John, and I really enjoy this moist burger flavored with onion and barbecue sauce.”
Judy White of Florien, Louisiana offers a twist on the classic Philly sandwich. Her delicious sub calls for tender chicken breast pieces smothered in onions and peppers. Topped with provolone and a mild pepper sauce, these terrific sandwiches are fun to share with a friend.
When all I had available was ground beef and I was tired of plain-old hamburgers, I invented these. A good dose of Italian seasonings and mozzarella makes them unique. They're great with homemade French fries for a quick meal. —Steven Schend, Grand Rapids, MI
