A spicy marinade adds zip to these grilled beef slices tucked inside pita bread. Friends from Greece gave us their recipe for the cucumber sauce, which provides a cool contrast to the hot beef. I never have to worry about leftovers when I serve these sandwiches.
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.
Guests won't need much coaching to run for the sandwiches when they're served on tasty football buns, like those I baked for a theme party. They were part of a sporty dinner I planned for residents at a nursing home, where I head the food staff. —Sister Judith LaBrozzi, Canton, Ohio
For any holiday or gathering, I prefer quick-and-easy dishes since I work full-time. This main dish is fun since everyone can fix their own sandwich the way they like it. Adding cola to the ham while it bakes makes for moist, tasty slices.

This recipe is a delicious variation on standard tuna salad. Served over a bed of crunchy chow mein noodles, this creamy tuna salad makes a quick yet memorable supper.—Marilyn A. Coomer, Louisville, Kentucky
This tender beef has become a tasty tradition when I cook for our harvest crews and for neighboring ranchers who come to help us sort our cattle. Those hungry folks have been a good testing ground for recipes. They let me know if a new one I try is a "keeper".

A flavorful Italian flat bread made with oats and molasses turns this sandwich into something special. I tuck ham, cheese and veggies inside, but you can substitute your favorite sandwich fillings.
