My husband and I can’t get enough of this great supper sandwich. The cheese-covered tomato slices top off the mild tuna salad deliciously. Sometimes, I replace the tuna with canned salmon, ham, chicken or turkey. How could something so good be so easy?
This sandwich is sized right for a crowd or a family meal during the holidays, according to Dona Bass of Aberdeen Proving Grounds, Maryland. "What's more, it's perfect for preparing ahead," she describes. "I just stuff the bread and store it in the refrigerator, then pop it in the oven right before our guests arrive."—Dona Bass, Aberdeen Proving Grounds, Maryland
Here’s a tasty meatless sandwich I concocted by combining some of our family’s favorite ingredients—garlic, avocado, cream cheese and bagels. For a variation, add fresh chives or minced sun-dried tomato to the cream cheese. Leftover spread makes an excellent veggie dip.
Thanks to a dash of mustard, salsa and hot sauce, these warm tuna sandwiches are full of zip! "Slices of tomato and cheese round them out," says Shannon Phipps of Houston, Texas. "Sometimes I stir chopped pickle and hard-cooked eggs into the tuna mix for additional flavor."
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.

At least a triple batch of my chicken salad is needed to satisfy hungry relatives at our summer family reunion. It's the most requested recipe I make. This salad is so versatile, it can be scooped onto a bed of lettuce or stuffed into a pita.

I first made this alternative to a submarine sandwich for a party. It looks appetizing and tastes great! Now it's a mainstay on my menu plan for gatherings or when my family is tired of ordinary meat-and-cheese sandwiches.
