If you like ham and cheese, you'll savor this hearty sandwich from Christine Nelson of Decatur, Arkansas. The meat and mozzarella delight is dipped in an egg batter before grilling. "This is a delicious combination, but you can substitute other meats," Christine suggests.
My husband and I enjoy Monte Cristos so much that I created this non-fried version to cut down on fat. The addition of orange peel and pecans makes these beautiful sandwiches absolutely delicious! —Mary Shivers, Ada, Oklahoma
For these everyday wraps, I combined the traditional Southern appetizer of jam and cream cheese on crackers and the turkey, apple and brie sandwiches we ate at my bridal luncheon. I like to sneak fresh spinach into all sorts of recipes because it has such a mild flavor. —Kim Beavers, North August, South Carolina
I originally got this recipe from my daughter-in-law, who likes to cook healthy meals. I just added my Texas touch to give the chunky turkey sandwiches some zip. I serve them a cranberry salad.

Waffles packed with turkey, ham, bacon and apricot preserves have so much sweet, smoky love going on. I use frozen waffles to save time, but have at it if you want to put your waffle iron to good use. —Kelly Reynolds, Urbana, Illinois
