As an Italian-American, I love, love, love garlic, tomatoes and basil, all of which are musts for good bruschetta. This recipe was created in celebration of the first tomatoes to come out of our home garden this year. —Gina Rine, Canfield, Ohio
In Crystal, North Dakota, Anna Whelan stacks this warm sub so high with yummy ingredients, you'll have to open wide to take a bite! Slices are hearty with ham, gooey with melted cheese and spicy with salami and pepperoni.
"My Italian husband grew up eating this flavorful sandwich his mother use to make after Saturday chores were finished," Christine Lupella relates from Fifty Lakes, Minnesota. Tip: "This sub can easily be made a few hours ahead and refrigerated, then served with chips, veggies and dip for a delicious meal," remarks Christine.
Orange you glad it’s not the same old crustless ham and cheese? Orange you also glad you don’t have to get up early to pack lunch? In less than 10 minutes, you (and five others) will have something to look forward to all morning long. —Jennifer Moore, Centerville, Iowa
When it comes to food, I'm all about anything in a pocket—pita bread, bierocks, empanadas and more. These Italian-inspired turnovers are great for dinner and even better the next day. For smaller ones, use a single crescent roll with a level tablespoon of filling.
Not the traditional sloppy joe, this colorful sandwich combines bacon, salad greens, tomato and cheese with a mayonnaise dressing. "My dad made these somewhat-messy but tasty BLT's often when we were kids," says Debbie Blackburn, New Cumberland, Pennsylvania.
“These delicious stuffed sandwiches are easy to put together,” assures Shannon Hansen from Oxnard, California. “Some can be baked as soon as they’re assembled, while the rest can be frozen for a quick dinner later. Sometimes I use cubed sharp cheddar cheese instead of shredded cheese in these sandwiches.”
"I like recipes like this flavorful sandwich that can be made ahead because they let me relax with family and friends after a busy day as a teacher," relates Patricia Lomp of Middleboro, Massachusetts. "Just unwrap, slice and enjoy."
