I love having family over for breakfast, and they all look forward to this down-home specialty. Cinnamon, nutmeg and apple slices help combine the flavors of the four different meats in this robust dish. I slice and cook the meat the day before to save time in the morning.
A co-worker shared this restaurant recipe with me when I lived in Minneapolis in the 1970s. The marinade tenderizes the meat, and the drippings make a savory sauce to accompany the moist beef slices.

Buttery, colorful and flaky, this rich and impressive salmon will be a family favorite in moments. Five smart ingredients, and you’ll have just the leftovers you need for tomorrow night’s pasta dish. —Sonya Labbe, West Hollywood, California
Though still debated, Tucson is generally credited as the original home of the chimichanga (fried "burro", as we call them, stuffed with meat, onions and chilies). I've combined several recipes into this one, and it's fairly authentic. —Laura Towns, Glendale, Arizona
My mother has been making this stew since the 1940s and prepared it for our family many times through the years. It's loaded with vegetables for wonderful flavor and pretty presentation. - Judith Wood, Fredericktown, Ohio
I received this recipe from my sister-in-law and use it all the time. The addition of pepperoni and cinnamon makes it extra special. My family says it's the best spaghetti sauce ever! —Wendy Prevost, Cody, Wyoming
