Better with Brunch
For Easter or Mother's Day, a simple brunch will brighten up the table and all the faces around it.
"When I fix Carrot Pancakes for overnight guests, they always ask for the recipe," shares Denise Rushing of Greenwood, Arkansas. "Everyone enjoys the sweet carrot cake flavor and rich cream cheese topping." The pancakes are a snap to make, but you can save even more time by grating the carrots in a food processor.
When Becky Roth of Kawkawlin, Michigan created the recipe for Asparagus Omelet (shown at right) with her husband, they were trying to use up leftover asparagus and hollandaise sauce. The vegetable-filled omelet gets its irresistible flavor from the creamy sauce and a nice crunch from crumbled bacon.
"Whenever the whole family gets together for a holiday or long weekend, they request my Ham 'n' Egg Sandwich," says DeeDee Newton of Toronto, Ontario. With this all-in-one breakfast sandwich, she can feed everyone by stacking ham, tomato, scrambled eggs, onion and cheese inside a loaf of French bread. Then simply pop it in the oven to warm up.
Southwest Sausage Bake is not only delicious, but it's a real time-saver because it's put together the night before. The tomato slices provide a nice touch of color. "I like to serve this crowd-pleasing casserole with sour cream and salsa," says Barbara Waddel of Lincoln, Nebraska.
