If you love Reubens, you'll enjoy this twist on the classic sandwich made with frozen hash brown patties. I came up with the recipe because a member of our family has a sensitivity to bread. Now I wouldn't think of making a Reuben any other way!—Alice Stanwix, Honeoye, New York
"My husband, Bob, and I operate a bed-and-breakfast, omelets are our 'friends'," confirms Massachusetts field editor Charlotte Baillargeon of Hinsdale. "Omelets are sort of the 'stew' of eggs - you can add almost any leftover vegetable or meat into the filling. This is one of our favorite combinations."
One day, I added peanut butter chips and pecans to my pancake recipe and everyone liked it! This enhanced the taste and gave the pancakes an unexpected crunch. Try it; you'll like it! —Margaret Pache, Mesa, Arizona
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
We discovered this recipe in Mexico. We couldn't figure out what made the French toast so delicious until we learned the secret was vanilla—one of Mexico's most popular flavorings. Since then, we've added a touch of vanilla to our waffle and pancake recipes, and it makes all the difference. —Joe and Bobbi Schott, Castroville, Texas
