To remind my daughter of wintertime in her home state, I planned a snowman theme brunch while visiting her in central California. This flavorful quiche sparked with spicy sausage and peppers got a reception that was far from chilly!
"This wonderfully moist brunch dish can be made a day early and stored in the refrigerator to save time," reports Kim Hafner of East Walpole, Massachusetts. "Loaded with zucchini, herbs and cheese, it goes well with croissants and fresh fruit."
Onion lovers are sure to be asking for second helpings of this appetizing tart - it uses two kinds of onions! Parmesan and feta cheese, nutmeg and hot pepper sauce enhance the flavor nicely. With its quiche-like filling, the dish is ideal for a brunch or buffet.

Meet the Cook: As a high school vice principal with a 5-year-old daughter, I especially appreciate the convenience of this dish. I've served it for breakfast and also as part of a full brunch buffet along with breads, biscuits, bagels and side salads.

This recipe is special enough to consider when company comes, and it's a convenient way to serve eggs to a group. Nestled on top of Canadian bacon and Swiss cheese, the eggs are drizzled with rich cream. For a pretty presentation, cut around each egg and serve on toast. Judy Wells
"Before I retired, this all-in-one skillet dish was constantly requested at office brunches," writes Barbara Beasley of Beaumont, Texas. "I'd leave out the eggs, double or triple the recipe and wrap servings of the zippy pork mixture in warm corn tortillas."
"A creamy sauce adds great basil flavor to these eggs baked in individual custard cups," says Maria Regakis from her home in Somerville, Massachusetts. "You can even pop the eggs out of the cups and place them between toasted English muffin halves for on-the-go sandwiches."
