Pineapple, brown sugar, and cinnamon make plain pork sausage links extra tasty. And the banana slices really complement the sausage. This dish is super easy to prepare and makes any breakfast special.—Marian Peterson, Wisconsin Rapids, Wisconsin
Waffles packed with turkey, ham, bacon and apricot preserves have so much sweet, smoky love going on. I use frozen waffles to save time, but have at it if you want to put your waffle iron to good use. —Kelly Reynolds, Urbana, Illinois
"I tried this recipe when I was a 4-H leader," jots Louise Gangwish of Shelton, Nebraska. "Before morning chores, the young members would grab a glass of milk or juice and a handful of these crisp cookies." Chock-full of bacon, cornflakes and raisins, they're a handy breakfast on the go.
We live on a lake and have many overnight guests, so I serve brunch often. I'm always looking for recipes to enhance the usual eggs and bacon. My husband came home from a men's brunch raving about this one, and the hostess shared the recipe. Just be sure to make more than you think you might need...everybody wants seconds.

"I often stretch it by adding whatever fruit I have on hand, such as apples, peaches or cranberries," notes the Vicksburg, Michigan reader. "I've also served it over noodles or rice as a skillet supper."
