Says contest winner Nancy Miller of Bettendorf, Iowa, "I wanted an inexpensive, healthy egg dish for Sunday brunch, so I came with this recipe. It's hearty and delicious, and the apples give it a slight sweetness."
My husband and I have two young daughters, but we often eat breakfast before they get up. This meal is one of our favorite "breakfasts for two". It's tasty and fun and looks great on the table.—Kathy Scott, Lingle, Wyoming
These light and fluffy pancakes are perfectly portioned for two, so there's no need to worry about what to do with leftover batter. For a special taste treat, I like to prepare them with blueberries.—Annemarie Pietila, Farmington Hills, Michigan
This omelet, stuffed with cheese, olives and sour cream and topped with zippy taco sauce, is easy to prepare. It makes a wonderfully filling main dish that's great for breakfast, lunch or supper.—Pamela Immekus, Sullivan, Missouri
Meet the Cook: With all the eggs our chickens produce, I could make this omelet every day! I guess I consider it to be mostly a festive dish, but you could fix it anytime...including for a light supper.
Growing up in a big family - seven children - of big eaters, I started cooking early. Now, I have a husband who likes to eat! We're the parents of one son, 8, and two daughters, 6 and 4.

THIS RECIPE was always one of my family's favorites, and it remains so for my husband and me.
When we plan a trip by car, I make the frittata the night before, stuff it into pita bread in the morning and microwave each one for a minute or two. Then I wrap them in a towel, and down the road an hour or so, we enjoy a still-warm breakfast!

I created this recipe for my 15-year-old son, who has a ravenous appetite. He couldn't believe I was able to fill his plate so quickly. It's a simple combination of ingredients that imparts the best of flavors.

This terrific, single-serving recipe is from Angela Sansom of New York, New York. The cinnamon and nutmeg give the French toast an extra tasty twist; which just goes to prove that breakfast for one can be fun!
This egg dish is true to my Italian heritage. Italians make frittatas with many combinations of ingredients. I'm a creative cook, so I came up with this simple recipe based on how I remember my grandma making this dish. Even at that, I'm not sure I make it the same each time.
