“When one of my sons and I had to change to a gluten-free diet, I searched for recipes that tasted great. These pancakes are low-cal, as well. I cook extras and freeze them. Then, when I’m short on time, I toss a couple in the toaster. You’ll love the fluffy texture and the chocolate.” —Sharen Gustafson, South Lyon, Michigan
This dish makes for a dramatic presentation. I usually take it right from the oven to the table, fill it with peaches and sour cream and serve it with bacon or ham. Whenever I go home, my mom (the best cook I know) asks me to make this. —Nancy Wilkinson, Princeton, New Jersey
After enjoying scrambled egg muffins at a local restaurant, I came up with this version that my husband likes even better. They're pretty, hearty and fun to serve, too. —Cathy Larkins, Marshfield, Missouri
"My family loves sausage, but I wanted to reduce the fat and calories," confides Linda Murray of Allenstown, New Hampshire. "This version, which uses ground turkey, is nicely spiced with garlic, sage, allspice, thyme and cayenne pepper."
For a fun change-of-pace breakfast, Kathy Brodin of Wauwatosa, Wisconsin suggests these sausage and hash brown frittatas perked up with salsa. "To lower the cholesterol even more, use egg substitute for the whole eggs," she notes.
Egg substitute can be used to replace whole eggs in many recipes with good results, especially in frittatas, omelets and quiches. This eggs substitute can be whipped up easily.—Taste of Home Test Kitchen, Greendale, Wisconsin
Biting into these delicately thin pancake packets sets off an explosion of flavors with every mouthful. "The berries bring a burst of fruity sweetness to the creamy cheese filling," Kristine Wright, St. Joseph, Michigan, observes. "Blintzes makes a luxurious breakfast or brunch...or a finishing touch to meal."
You'd never guess there's bran in these moist, tasty pancakes that are drizzled with a sweet orange sauce. "My children are grown, but they still request this for breakfast when they come home," writes Marie Cockerham of Rock Hill, South Carolina. Your family will surely flip over these flapjacks, too!
"By keeping a few of these tender well-stuffed crepes in the freezer, I can easily reheat them when vegetarian friends stop by unexpectedly," writes Patricia Moyer of Island, Pond, Vermont. "Plus, they're a great way to use up extra zucchini."
