I love this recipe because it is great to use up leftover mashed potatoes and vegetables, especially the day after a big meal. You can substitute sweet Italian sausage for the bacon if you want a heartier quiche. —Heather King, Frostburg, Maryland
My mom loves quiche, so for Mother's Day one year I created my own quiche recipe for her. I've been making it ever since. All it takes is a trip to the farmers market. If you have the ingredients, make the crust from scratch. —Yanique Douglas, Waynesboro, Pennsylvania
"When we have baked potatoes for dinner, I often bake a few extra to use for this hearty breakfast," writes Linda Wakefield from her home in Mulino, Oregon. "This recipe is so versatile that you can always use up whatever leftovers you have on hand."
This pretty pie has it all—a graham cracker-pecan crust that's layered with vanilla ice cream and lemon curd and then frozen. Golden-brown meringue adds the finishing touch.—Dana Hinck, Pensacola, Florida
My husband and I are grain and dairy farmers...and big fans of strawberries. The fruit I pick often ends up in this pie. The combination of the cool creamy berry filling and the delightfully different meringue crust guarantees you'll hear, "Pass the pie, please", all around the table.
My son loves pear crisp, but one night I was making bread pudding. He asked if I could make both. I compromised by combining two desserts into this one dish. It's absolutely fantastic!—Kurt Wait, Redwood City, California
"This beautiful dessert is a very big hit at parties," relates Phyllis Amboss of Pacific Palisades, California. "The tender meringues have a wonderful hazelnut flavor with layers of chocolate, whipped cream and berries.
"I got the recipe when we were in Israel for a few months in 1979. I had no cookbooks with me, and my hairdresser gave me an old Australian cookbook with this recipe in it. I made a few changes and this is the result."
“Some leftover bread, an open can of chocolate syrup and a package of malted milk balls inspired this yummy recipe. Adding almonds gave the pudding a pleasing crunch,” writes Roxanne Chan from Albany, California.
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.

"Soon after we moved to Arizona, I received this recipe," pens Anita Meador from her home in Mesa. "It's a big hit with everyone. For a fun variation, add part of a green pepper and some whole kernel corn," she recommends. "Or omit the potatoes and eggs and add your favorite canned beans and a little shredded cheddar cheese." —Anita Meador, Mesa, Arizona
Don't let the name fool you. Our kids love these hearty wraps morning, noon and night. My wife and I appreciate how fast and satisfying they are. The dash of salsa adds just the right "zip". —Scott Jones of Tulsa, Oklahoma
