"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."
From time to time, we have stuffed French toast made from rich buttery brioche. One Father's Day when I wanted to make it for my husband, the store was out of brioche, so I tried croissants instead. They turned out to be even simpler to use.
“This sweet and colorful fruit compote is perfect with an egg casserole at a holiday brunch. It can bake right alongside the eggs, so everything is conveniently done at the same time,” notes Joyce Moynihan in Lakeville, Minnesota.
I received this recipe from my mother-in-law, an all-around great cook. Everyone raves about her rich quiche when she serves it at card parties. I love to cook, but with a 4-month-old, I don't have a lot of time in the kitchen these days.

This is a dish my wife had to learn to make in her high school home economics class. I've adapted and renamed it. To me, it has no equal and brings to mind those special days of the '40's. —Richard, Ramsey
"We like the sweet cinnamony flavor of this instant oatmeal at our house," relates Robert Caummisar of Grayson, Kentucky. The mix makes it convenient to zap a bowl in the microwave for a speedy breakfast. If you like milk with your oatmeal, you can pour a little on top before serving.
Fresh berries and cream cheese create the creamy middle in these French toast sandwiches. "Because you prepare this breakfast bake the night before, it's perfect for overnight guests," writes Karen Sharp from Harvard, Illinois. "Serve it with bacon and fresh fruit."
