This traditional oven-baked pancake is a sensational way to showcase fruit-and it makes an ideal holiday breakfast or brunch. If you prefer, sprinkle with powdered sugar or serve it with canned pie filling or other fruit.
Tender sweet potatoes match up with ham, cooked eggs and zippy seasoning to make this hash one you’ll put on your “make again” list. It’s a good breakfast-for-dinner meal.Judy Armstrong, Prairieville, Louisiana
You can easily prepare this the night before for a luncheon or during the morning for a dinner. I serve it year-round, for large groups like my card club or garden club, at picnics and at other occasions. When I do, just about always someone requests the recipe!
My husband and I have been married 49 years (two sons and five grand daughters). I've enjoyed cooking since I was a girl. My mother was an excellent cook, and she passed along many of the Pennsylvania Dutch recipes that are popular in this part or our state.
Corn's always been the basis of my favorite recipesin fact, these corn cakes were one of the first things I made for my husband.
For dinner, they're nice with fresh fruit salad and ham. They're also great with breakfast sausage and orange juice.

"I love serving these tender crepes with their light lemony sauce in spring," notes Carol Hemker of Phenix City, Alabama. "But my husband would eat them any time of year at all. In fact, it's the only way he'll eat asparagus! This dish is also lovely for luncheon or brunch."
Fixing rhubarb this way brings a spring "zing" to the table. I adapted this crepe recipe, which originally featured strawberry jelly, from one I loved as a child. My husband declared it a "winner". He even came up with its name.
Feel free to be creative with this versatile egg tart. Try Canadian bacon or ham as the meat ingredient, and add toppings such as thyme, chopped spinach or goat cheese.Diana Neves, Lafayette, California
A savory update on baked French toast, this is an easy make-ahead dish that is excellent for brunch and showers. The combination of maple syrup, bacon and nuts makes it impressive and satisfying.John Whitehead, Greenville, South Carolina
Meet the Cook: As a high school vice principal with a 5-year-old daughter, I especially appreciate the convenience of this dish. I've served it for breakfast and also as part of a full brunch buffet along with breads, biscuits, bagels and side salads.
