This strata recipe is an excellent easy-to-prepare brunch or lunch for two. I enjoy it so much, I often make it for myself and reheat the extra portion in the microwave. —Mina Dyck, Boissevain, Manitoba
Celebrate spring with the sweet-tart taste of rhubarb in Jackie Hutshing’s simple sauce. The Sonoma, California cook enjoys it on toast, English muffins and pancakes, but it’s just as good drizzled on pound cake or ice cream.
"This is one of our favorite quick dishes," writes Alyce Wyman of Pembina, North Dakota. "My husband and I used to winter in Florida and after a day of gold, it was always a cinch to prepare this satisfying meal with a tossed salad."
"These wonderful little 'cupcakes' go well with any type of breakfast meat," promises Dorothy Swanson of St. Louis, Missouri. "I found the recipe in my newspaper's food section years ago, and it's been a favorite ever since. It's a delightfully different way to enjoy eggs."
"This is a recipe I used to make with bacon, ham and regular cheese," said Pamela Shank of Parkersburg, West Virginia. "It is easy to substitute the high fat for the low fat or fat free ingredients. This is a very pretty dish when it is served because of all the colors."
"This recipe yields just a short stack of oat pancakes that's perfect for one or two," reports Florence Groves of Vancouver, Washington. "When we used to travel in our motor home, I'd measure out the dry ingredients for individual batches in resealable bags, then just combine with an egg, buttermilk and butter for a quick meal."
"I came up with this recipe one morning when we had smoked sausage leftover from the day before - and my husband loved it," relates Stephanie Leven of Warsaw, Missouri. The combination of spicy sausage, spinach, eggs, potato and cheese makes a hearty morning meal or a satisfying light supper.
"This is a downsized version of a recipe that belonged to my husband's mother and has been in their family for 80 years," shares Myrna Gerson of Staten Island, New York. "My husband and I got married 30 years ago, and I've been making these griddle cakes ever since."
