Expert Tips

For other quick sandwich ideas, try some of these combinations: turkey, Cheddar cheese and green pepper; sliced beef, Swiss cheese and horseradish; or for a real treat, seafood salad from the deli sprinkled with chopped green onions and dollops of cocktail sauce.

If you have a toaster oven, use it instead of heating the broiler to make quick summer sandwiches.
