Chock-full of ground beef, cheddar cheese, onion and green pepper, this swift south-of-the-border bake is guaranteed to liven up any meal. Just ask Mary Johnston, who serves the zippy dish at her Wasilla, Alaska home.
If you're looking to bring a little variety to breakfast, try this effortless egg dish from Joan Enerson. "The cheesy sauce is easy to make, and the green chiles really jazz up the omelet," she writes from Waupaca, Wisconsin.
This layered tortilla dish is not only delicious, but it's a real time-saver because it's put together the night before. The tomato slices provide a nice touch of color. I like to serve this crowd-pleasing casserole with muffins and fresh fruit.
Eggs and hash browns have extra pizzazz when they're served up on a pizza pan. "My family requests this fun breakfast often, and it's a snap to make with prebaked crust," assures Christy Hinrichs of Parkville, Missouri. "I adjust the 'heat index' of the toppings to suit the taste buds of my diners."
Steer clear of hunger without hitting the brakes—simply zap one of these frozen morning morsels in the microwave. This is my family's favorite combination, but try replacing the bacon with cooked breakfast sausage. —Audra Niederman, Aberdeen, South Dakota
Salsa perks up the flavor of this twist on a classic breakfast combo. "This recipe can easily be divided to serve a few or doubled to serve a crowd," notes Wendy Matejek of Corpus Christi, Texas. "Just plan to use one egg for each taco."
I discovered this different recipe at a workshop of holiday breakfasts offered at our church. It was a big hit! It works really well when you're cooking for a crowd. I like to serve salsa or hot sauce with them.
