Go on a burger road trip in your own backyard. Grill the patties and load them sky-high. Peanut butter and bacon make them southern style; coleslaw and tomatoes, a northern version. —Susan Mahaney, New Hartford, New York
My father is Cajun, and I grew up eating Cajun food. This easy recipe makes me think of happy childhood memories. Sometimes I use oysters or crawfish in addition to—or instead of—the shrimp. —Stacey Johnson, Bonney Lake, Washington
This pretty braided sandwich loaf is a winner! My daughter entered the recipe in a state 4-H beef cooking contest and won a trip to the national competition. It seems to rate tops with most folks who taste it.
I like to prepare these tasty sandwiches whenever I have a few friends over for an informal lunch. The combination of toppings is out of this world. I'm often asked for the recipe.

This is a hearty grilled sandwich with a distinctive and delicious combination of ingredients. The pickle slices add a bit of fun, and the barbecue sauce provides a hint of sweetness that's irresistible.
