Spicy Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Rating: 4.5 stars 141
Grilled cheese with onions, tomatoes and jalapenos-- tastier than the original!

Chicago-Inspired Italian Beef Sandwich

Rating: 4.5 stars 48
I tried to combine the traditional Italian beef sandwich with the French dip sandwich with a little nod to the pulled pork sandwich. Instead of using thinly sliced roast beef, I used stew beef, with apologies to my friends from Chicago.

Vegetarian Chickpea Sandwich Filling

Serve this tasty sandwich spread on crusty whole grain rolls or pita bread, with lettuce and tomato. Other raw, chopped vegetables can be substituted for the celery. Your favorite salad dressing can be substituted for the mayo.

This version of the popular Vietnamese bahn mi sandwich has sweet and tangy pickled vegetables and broiled chicken breast, served on a toasted French baguette.

Grilled Chicken Salad Sandwich

Rating: 4.5 stars 52
This is a great way to use leftover grilled chicken breasts from dinner the night before. I like it on wheat. My husband likes it on sourdough.

Texas-style pulled pork simmers in a tangy chili-seasoned barbecue sauce with plenty of onion, then pulled into tender shreds to serve on a buttered, toasted bun.

Delicious Egg Salad for Sandwiches

This is a wonderful-tasting egg salad sandwich that you will definitely devour. It's really good on rye.

Reuben Sandwich II

These sandwiches are really delicious and easy to make. They are one of my family's fix-it-quick favorites. I like to serve them with big bowls of steaming vegetable soup and dill pickles on the side. Enjoy!

Avocado Tuna Salad

Rating: 5 stars 3
Great tuna avocado salad as a side dish or meal. Serve on toasted bread (gluten-free if needed), on top of greens, or enjoy it all by itself.
