When my husband and I needed a quick meal, I fixed this recipe using leftover ingredients. Unlike traditional Mexican quesadillas, it calls for Italian meats, cheeses and seasoning. Serve it with a green salad topped with Italian dressing for a simple dinner for two. —Barbara B. Rupert, Edgefield, South Carolina
“This yummy sandwich is perfect for lunches or a quick weeknight dinner when there's no time for a big meal,” says Jennifer Parham from Browns Summit, North Carolina. Smoked cheddar and a creamy garlic-infused spread lend special appeal to this easy hand-held. —Jennifer Parham, Browns Summit, North Carolina
Looking for a change from the typical Reuben or grilled cheese? “This was a famous sandwich in the islands years ago,” notes Darlene Vanwie of Clayton, New York. “We make it often, and I always get requests for more. Serve warm with your favorite pickles,” she suggests.
When I'm in a hurry and want something good, this sandwich fills the bill. It tastes great with a salad and pork and beans on the side. Instead of using ketchup, I occasionally use barbecue sauce with a little Tabasco for extra zip.
