I got bored with the same old breakfast casseroles I'd see at our monthly moms' meeting, so I decided to create something new. Judging by the reactions of the other moms, I think I have a winner. —Shannon Koene, Blacksburg, Virginia
Fresh green bean flavor stands out in this pretty lattice-topped pie. A flaky golden crust holds the savory bean, mushroom and cream cheese filling. It tastes wonderfully different every time I make it depending on the variety of mushroom I use.

"The first time I had this chili at a Super Bowl party, I was on my second bowl before I realized it had no meat! It's so chock-full of ingredients and flavor that it's hard to believe this is a low-fat recipe. Enjoy!" Ronald Johnson - Elmhurst, Illinois
My sister brought this recipe with her when she was visiting from California. We served it at a family get-together and everyone just loved it. We're often asked to bring it to potlucks. —Marcia Tiernan, Madrid, New York
“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
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
Meet the Cook: The day I first made this, we'd invited a neighbor - a bachelor farmer - over, and I wanted to fix something hearty. It was a hit instantly. These days, our three sons (17, 16 and 13) enjoy it as a change from regular mashed potatoes. We've found that it's best served with beef...either with or without gravy.
