As teachers, my husband and I rarely have time for breakfast during the week. So we look forward to relaxing breakfasts with our daughters on weekends. The cinnamon bread in this recipe is a nice variation.
The crepes used in this recipe come from my mom's special recipe, and can be made ahead of time, refrigerated to assemble the next day. Cooked rotisserie chicken is a real time-saver when making this savory brunch specialty. —Mary Sloan, Brighton, Michigan
This recipe is easy to make, but it looks like you cooked for hours. I like to serve it with broiled grapefruit topped with brown sugar and ginger for breakfast, and a mixed green-tomato salad tossed with balsamic vinaigrette for brunch or dinner. —Nadine Mesch, Mount Healthy, OH
When I was a little girl, growing up in Kansas City, Mo., my mother made these waffles for the family, especially if we were expecting company.
For a little girl, the best part of this was the waffle iron Mother used. It was called a "Mazie Lee". All the waffles came out with a sun, moon and stars on them. The iron was used on the stovetop, so you cooked one side at a time.
The iron is in my possession, and I enjoy making this treat for my family.
Honey, maple syrup and vanilla coat this wonderfully crunchy treat that's fantastic no matter how you serve it—on its own, with cold milk, or in a yogurt parfait. —Sarah C. Vasques, Milford, New Hampshire
My son and I like to make this breakfast favorite together. You can leave the berries out of the mix and sprinkle them on top, or sub in chocolate chips or nuts instead. —Elizabeth Stewart, Crab Orchard, West Virginia
“I once made these rosemary-seasoned sausage patties for Christmas breakfast, and they’re now a favorite throughout the year. The pork mixture can be combined a day ahead and chilled until it’s time to bake.” —Deborah Harris, Colorado Springs, Colorado
