"There's no last-minute preparation and you can serve several people at once with this casserole," reports bed-and-breakfast owner Lo Ann Brennock of Cloverdale, California. "My guests love the smooth custardy bottom layer topped with thick slices of cinnamon bread."
"These cute quiches are easy to fix for an after-church brunch when you don't want to fuss," relates Marilou Robinson of Portland, Oregon. "They're versatile, too. Replace the ham with bacon, sausage, chicken or shrimp...or substitute chopped onion, red pepper or zucchini for the olives," she suggests.
As a busy activity director in RV parks, Jean Groen of Apache Junction, Arizona recalls, “I was always looking for easy food to prepare for various functions. This breakfast dish always brought raves and recipe requests!”
JEAN’S TIP: “Leftovers, if there are any, are wonderful. Just microwave them for 15 seconds per slice.”
Better than fast-food fare, these savory sandwiches with veggie cream cheese and zesty olives will have mouths watering in the morning. “For a change of pace, prepare them with other cream cheeses or speed things up by using precooked bacon warmed in the microwave,” advise Chris and Jenny Thackray of Corpus Christi, Texas.
Pancake mix gives a jump-start to this hearty hurry-up breakfast from MarGenne Rowley of Oasis, Utah. "Including bacon and cheese in the waffle batter makes an all-in-one breakfast flavor," she assures. Freeze extras to reheat another day.
