Stuffed with a pizza-style filling, these special sandwiches surprise you with a burst of flavor in every bite. They were popular with the preschool set at our son's dinosaur-theme birthday party...but you can be sure adults will love them, too! Robin Werner, Brush Prairie, Washington
Sour cream makes these burgers delightfully moist, and thyme and black pepper give them zip. These sandwiches are a terrific taste of summer served with tall glasses of lemonade or iced tea.

What do folks eat at a ball game? Hot dogs, of course! For our baseball theme party, I jazzed them up with an easy homemade barbecue sauce and a tangy relish that's become a family tradition. I make up a supply when our garden's booming with zucchini.Sue Gronholz, Beaver Dam, Wisconsin
"Plain hot dogs are dressed up with an appealing Tex-Mex flavor in this recipe," reports Marion Stanley of Joseph, Oregon. "I made these stuffed hot dogs for my kids when they were young and later for my grandchildren."
Instead of plain tuna salad sandwiches, I fix this creamy tuna mixture, which includes crunchy apples. Then I put it on a crisp English muffin half with triangle tortilla chips sticking out to look like the sails of a ship.Judy Archuleta, Escalon, California
This delicious beef makes great sandwiches for a picnic, party or camping trip. The meat has a tempting from-scratch flavor that beats deli cold cuts. My family has savored these sandwiches for many years.
The idea for this unique sandwich was inspired by a light eggplant dish I made for hot summer evenings. I decided to use the golden eggplant slices as a base for sandwiches. My family goes wild for the delicious combination of toppings.

I created this fun sandwich for a picnic-style meal at a teddy bear theme baby shower. The cheerful, chubby bear is formed using a round bread and rolls filled with meats, cheese and a seasoned spread. When the guest of honor mentioned plans for a teddy theme in her nursery, I latched on to the idea for a gathering. -Susan Schuller, Brainerd, Minnesota
