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.
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
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.
As either a hearty party sandwich or a filling lunch or dinner, this sub will rise to the top of your list of favorites. It's also a perfect contribution to a potluck...but don't expect to have any leftovers!
"We travel a lot, and I want my family to eat right while we're away from home, so I pack a cooler full of these fun sandwiches," relates Paula Truksa of Jewett, Texas. "You can use different luncheon meats, cheeses, sweet or sour pickles and white or wheat bread to suit your tastes."

These subs are a good year-round—for lunch, dinner or a late-night supper. When it's construction season, Brian may work until sundown. This meal's one that I can serve early to our kids and again later when he gets home.—Nanci Keatley, Salem, Oregon
