This has become the brunch dish I'm known for here in Pearland. The recipe combines the favorite flavors of hearty, old-time country breakfasts with the ease of a modern, make-ahead dish. Try it—you'll enjoy it.
“I used to make this with turkey or chicken sausage, but adapted it for a vegetarian friend, and it was a huge hit. I serve it with fresh breads or bagels and a big mixed salad featuring arugula, apples and walnuts for brunch. It also works well for lunch, served with tomato bisque.” —Danna Rogers, Westport, Connecticut
I enjoy preparing hearty country breakfasts for the guests at my bed-and-breakfast. This fluffy golden pie, which has lots of cheese and bacon, is a most satisfying entree.—Mark Clark, Twin Mountain, New Hampshire
Nothing says Mother’s Day like a quiche. The buttery crust and fresh fillings—in this case, spring favorites asparagus, mushrooms and onion—show Mom how much you care. But don’t be intimidated: A super-easy refrigerated pastry makes this recipe a cinch to put together. —Trisha Kruse, Eagle, Idaho
“These little treats are super-easy to make and perfect for a special breakfast. They’re also very nice for a casual dinner. The smoky cheese and bacon elevate eggs to another level!” Catherine Wilkinson — Dewey, Arizona
