Corn Dog Muffins

Rating: 4.5 stars 742
An easy way to make the favorite treat from the fair. You can substitute cocktail wieners for hot dogs.

School Lunch Bagel Sandwich

Rating: 4.5 stars 30
This sandwich mixes the goodness of bagels with the crunch of dill pickles. I came up with this sandwich for my son who loves bagels and cream cheese but I felt his favorite needed something extra to really make it a lunch. This is kid-tested good, and you can alter the veggies according to what your child likes.

Vietnamese Sandwich

Rating: 4.5 stars 170
While teaching English in Asia the past several years, I've been lucky to exchange some delicious and authentic recipes with local people. This Vietnamese banh mi sandwich is awesome, and it is a nice break from common sandwiches. The garlic chili sauce is common in Asian sections of markets but Indonesian sambal or Korean chili paste can also be substituted. Beer or red wine is the beverage of choice for this authentic recipe of French-influenced Vietnamese cuisine.

Chicken Cordon Bleu Sandwich

Rating: 4.5 stars 49
If you love chicken cordon bleu because of its winning flavor combination of chicken, ham, and Gruyere cheese, you'll love this sandwich. It has all the satisfying flavors of chicken cordon bleu with half the work!

Jet Swirl Pizza Appetizers

Far East Tuna (Canapes)

Rating: 4 stars 13
Crackers are the foundation for this simple but irresistible mixture of tuna, pecans and pineapple delicately spiced with curry. I use this recipe when friends are over during the holidays.

Fruity Curry Chicken Salad

Rating: 5 stars 1020
A healthy and tasty chicken salad with a fruity twist - great on a croissant or in a honey pita. Note: This salad is best if eaten the day after preparation. This allows the ingredients time to mingle, giving a fuller flavor. If desired, use nonfat mayonnaise.

Southern Pimento Cheese

Rating: 5 stars 1020
A wonderful version of pimento cheese spread with cayenne and jalapeño.

Grilled Cheese, Apple, and Thyme Sandwich

Rating: 4.5 stars 4
The cinnamon-raisin bread adds a touch of sweetness to the creamy Gruyere cheese, the apples add a little crunch and pop of tartness, and the thyme gives it freshness with just a tease of its flavor, just enough to make this sandwich special.

Pesto Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Rating: 4.5 stars 352
Elevate your grilled cheese by adding provolone cheese, tomato, and pesto.

Greek Yogurt Egg Salad Sandwich

Rating: 3.5 stars 7
Greek yogurt replaces mayonnaise in this simple egg salad sandwich meaning fewer calories and less fat.

Pesto Egg Salad

Rating: 4.5 stars 3
A great way to use pesto besides just serving it on pasta! How boring does that get, right? This pesto egg salad can be made spicy by adding a splash of hot sauce. It's also amazing with finely chopped giardiniera (mixed vegetables). Serve on crackers, cocktail rye, or use to top a summer salad.
