Meet the Cook: With these, I like being able to serve a complete breakfast inside a tidy pocket of dough. Just add fresh fruit, juice or fruit-flavored gelatin on the side.

This is a dish my wife had to learn to make in her high school home economics class. I've adapted and renamed it. To me, it has no equal and brings to mind those special days of the '40's. —Richard, Ramsey
Our daughter wouldn't mind if I made this Ham 'n' Cheese Strata every weekend! I do prepare it for each holiday, serving it alongside fresh cinnamon buns and a fruit salad. —Marilyn Kroeker, Steinbach, Manitoba
Hash browns make a fabulous crust for these individual egg quiches. They look like you fussed, but are actually easy to make. They've been a hit at holiday brunches and other special occasions.—Kate Meyer, Brentwood, Tennessee
This filling and flavorful dish requires only a minimal amount of preparation. Don't limit this egg dish to breakfast, it also makes a delicious light lunch or dinner.—Laura Stoltzfus, Leola, Pennsylvania
"My daughter is a vegetarian, so I eliminated the ham called for in the original recipe," informs Vicki Schrupp from Little Falls, Minnesota. "Wedges of this healthy quiche make a fast and flavorful brunch, lunch or supper."
"I created this tasty pie to get our family to eat a filling breakfast," explains Shirley Biel of Tallahassee, Florida. A prepared pastry crust, Italian sausage and vegetables make this all-in-one meal a great way to start any day.
After visiting our parents in the country one time, we came home laden with boxes of fresh vegetables. I shared them with a neighbor, who in turn shared this recipe with me. It has become one of our favorites—both to look at and to taste.
This recipe has been a family favorite for years. It's easy to prepare and perfect for a busy schedule. I've also made this recipe with salmon - substituting two cans for the ground beef and adding 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice. It's great!
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.
