My son fishes for salmon on the Kenai River in Alaska and smokes much of what he catches. My mother passed this recipe on to me to help me find new ways to cook with salmon. Regular salmon also works in this quiche, but the smoked flavor can't be beat! —Rose Marie Cherven, Anchorage, Alaska
My daughter brought this recipe home from school one day, and we loved it. Since then, these pancakes have been a regular part of Sunday morning breakfast, served with maple syrup, flavored syrup or applesauce and a big helping of grits.
"This recipe makes light, fluffy pancakes that will have the entire family asking for seconds," reveals Martha Cage, from Wheeling, West Virginia. "They're wonderful for those on restricted diets. Try them topped with homemade sugarless applesauce."
Meet the Cook: With all the eggs our chickens produce, I could make this omelet every day! I guess I consider it to be mostly a festive dish, but you could fix it anytime...including for a light supper.
Growing up in a big family - seven children - of big eaters, I started cooking early. Now, I have a husband who likes to eat! We're the parents of one son, 8, and two daughters, 6 and 4.

I really enjoy egg dishes, but I have to watch how many I eat. This recipe is easy to whip up anytime plus it tastes better than prepackages egg substitute products. I use this whenever a recipe calls for egg substitute.
My husband and I love the goodness of food prepared with whole grains. But our children are different—their idea of good bread is store-bought soft white sandwich bread. So I developed this to appeal to their love of sweet toppings while giving them a taste of whole-grain cooking.—Ann Harris, Lancaster, California
My husband loves to wake up to a hearty breakfast. I lightened up a traditional pancake recipe I had in my files so we can enjoy the comforting flavor without all the fat and calories. —Fern Motzinger, Omaha, Nebraska
I don't care for prepackaged frozen French toast, but I rarely have time in the mornings to prepare it from scratch. Then my friend gave me this wonderful recipe. I keep a freezer full of these slices and simply pop them into the oven for a homemade breakfast in no time.
