I make this ahead and serve this for Christmas morning breakfast. It has the ingredients of a classic eggs Benedict, which is encased in puff pastry to create beautiful loaf. You can refrigerate the assembled braid overnight, or freeze it for up to two weeks. Cover tightly with plastic wrap so the pastry doesn't dry out. Before baking, brush strudel with egg wash. Add 20 minutes to baking time is strudel is frozen.—Sarah Strohl, Commerce Twp, Michigan
"My husband developed this quick meal after taking stock of the leftovers in our fridge," says Nancy Harris of Prince George, British Columbia. "This hearty omelet is a weekend favorite, because there always seems to be that one leftover potato from Friday's dinner."
"This is great for a weekend brunch or as a spur-or-the moment supper served wtih toast and juice," recommends LuEllen Spaulding of Caro, Michigan. The nicely seasoned skillet dish is hearty with ham, cheese and potatoes.
"My son, Jeremy, has been helping around the kitchen since he was big enough to stand on a kitchen chair and stir something," relates Sandy Cork of Melvin, Michigan. "One of his favorite recipes is this pizza-flavored omelet."
Yawns will be gone from the breakfast table when you serve Jo Groth's strudel. The Plainfield, Iowa cook wraps phyllo dough around a creamy filling of ham, cheese and egg substitute to create pretty golden-brown roll-ups that taste terrific!
