"This dish is perfect for anyone who wants a taste of everything," said Casey Ace from Rock Hill, New York. "I enjoy trying to concoct my own dishes. My fiance's favorite meal is breakfast, so I created the Hearty Breakfast Combo just for him."
"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."
"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.
For a hearty breakfast treat, Lynn Stephens of Hermann, Missouri tops hash brown patties with eggs, cheese and vegetables. "This savory casserole can be prepared the day before ad popped into the oven in the morning. It's the most popular breakfast dish at my bed-and-breakfast," writes Lynn.
We have always enjoyed scrambled eggs for any meal...breakfast, lunch or dinner. Maybe it was because this was one of the first dishes we taught the children in the family to cook and they especially liked to make it.
My mother often made this recipe and probably grew up with it in the Appalachian area of Tennessee. She usually served it on Monday, making use of leftover mashed potatoes from Sunday dinner. We used to eat this topped with brown gravy.
"My teenage stepsons are hearty eaters, so I like to make them a big breakfast when they visit," relates LuAnn Edele of Brewster, New York. "With its zesty filling, this Southwestern-style omelet is one of their favorites. I serve it with fresh-baked corn muffins."
Chock-full of veggies and melted cheese, this comforting and colorful egg bake has become a holiday brunch classic. For a tasty variation, try substituting asparagus for broccoli and Swiss for cheddar cheese. —Irene Steinmeyer, Denver, Colorado
