The bacon, apple and tarragon in this recipe go together so well. If you don’t have a panini maker or an indoor grill, you can easily pan-fry or broil these excellent sandwiches.—Noelle Myers, Grand Forks, North Dakota

"I got the recipe for this hearty crowd-pleaser from a friend," reports field editor Patty Kile of Elizabethtown, Pennsylvania. "We find it especially delicious since our state is well known for its wonderful fresh mushrooms."
When company is coming for lunch, this is my favorite sandwich to make, since it looks and tastes a bit fancy. Even kids like it because of the crunchy nuts and creamy filling.
