Wake up your taste buds with the yummy flavors of warm refried beans, salsa and shredded cheese. Whip up this satisfying hot breakfast in 15 minutes flat. Spice it up with a hot salsa, or add sizzling cooked bacon for a smoky twist. —Teresa Gunnell, Lovettsville, Virginia
Instead of the usual ham and cheese, try dressing up eggs with strawberries and cream cheese. "I first tasted this dish while vacationing at the beach," recalls Selina Smith of Frostburg, Maryland. "We like it now as a change of pace for dinner."
Since wild rice is plentiful here, I love to create recipes starring that crunchy staple. Pork sausage helps spice up the mild rice flavor in this hearty omelet, which is draped with a silky-smooth cheese sauce. You can easily serve it to guests with little last-minute fuss.
