A hearty, hand-held breakfast is just the thing when we're "scrambling" to get out the door in the morning. I created these fun-filled pockets when my husband and kids were running late to school one day. Now my kids ask for these even when we don't have to be somewhere in a hurry. —Sue Olsen, Fremont, California
