    Falafel Pitas with Cucumber-Yogurt Dressing

    Popular in Greece and Middle Eastern countries, traditional falafel is made by deep-frying balls of spiced, ground chickpeas. Here, falafel patties are pan-fried and topped with a homemade yogurt dressing, then tucked in whole-wheat pita halves.

    A croque-madame is a variation on the croque-monsieur, a French twist on grilled ham and cheese. Instead of dipping the sandwich in egg before sautéeing in butter (as you would for a croque-monsieur), grill the sandwich first and top with homemade Mornay Sauce, cheese, and sunny-side up egg.

    Pressed Cuban Sandwiches

    Baked pork loin roast is a great base for many sandwiches, including this Cuban favorite. Spread mustard on Cuban bread and fill loaves with sliced pork loin, baked ham, provolone cheese, and dill pickle chips. Coat the outsides with butter and cook on a skillet or panini press until the sandwich is flat and the cheese is melted.
