"This delicious breakfast has been a favorite of mine for years," raves Sherri-Jo Capodiferro of Brightwaters, New York. "I like that I can assemble it the night before. I try to keep my mornings as simple as possible since I am a night owl and not a morning person!"
"I've been cooking for big gatherings for years...and now that I'm widowed, it's hard to cook for just one or two," admits Trudy Barth of Niceville, Florida. "That's why I appreciate simple recipes like this one, which turns canned apricots into a special side dish."
"This recipe yields just a short stack of oat pancakes that's perfect for one or two," reports Florence Groves of Vancouver, Washington.

"My husband, Bob, and I operate a bed-and-breakfast, omelets are our 'friends'," confirms Massachusetts field editor Charlotte Baillargeon of Hinsdale.

Get the day off to a great start with this welcome wake-up treat submitted by Alberta Hanson of Cushing, Wisconsin. Orange marmalade and pineapple lend a tangy twist to the hearty and flavorful bacon, egg and cheese English muffin.
This is a fast and hearty egg recipe. To make it even easier to prepare, I cut up the turkey and the vegetables, shred the cheese and freeze them in 1/2-cup portions. So when I want to serve this dish, I simply take out the number of bags needed.

My husband, Ron, created this wonderful breakfast gravy. It's home-style and old-fashioned. Sometimes we ladle the gravy over homemade biscuits. Served with fruit salad, it's a great breakfast.

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.
