"This pretty berry-flavored syrup is scrumptious, especially on homemade waffles," writes Sarah Carpenter of Trumansburg, New York. "Since I began making it, our three children prefer it over maple syrup."
"When I was young, my grandmother made these crepe-like pancakes and spread them with fresh honey," recalls Helen Wiese from Michigan City, Indiana. "Now when my grandkids come to visit, they request 'Grandma's special pancakes'...and I'm happy to oblige."
A prepared pastry crust hurries along the assembly of this hearty appetizer from Dorothy Sorensen of Naples, Florida. "Served with sour cream and additional salsa, it's a party favorite in our retirement community," she notes. "If you're feeding a crowd, bring two--they disappear fast!"
"I like to serve this special brunch dish to overnight guests because I can prepare it the night before," notes Christina French of Elkhart, Indiana. "The recipe, which I changed a bit to suit our family's tastes, came from a dear lady at our church."
"I tried this recipe when I was a 4-H leader," jots Louise Gangwish of Shelton, Nebraska. "Before morning chores, the young members would grab a glass of milk or juice and a handful of these crisp cookies." Chock-full of bacon, cornflakes and raisins, they're a handy breakfast on the go.
"This is an old German dish that was served to threshers and us kids when I was growing up," informs Katherine Stallwood of Kennewick, Washington. "With toast and jam, this flavorful omelet will make four people very happy."
I cook the bacon and chop up the vegetables for this hearty casserole the night before, so it only takes a few minutes to finish in the morning. When we have overnight guests, I serve it for breakfast along with blueberry muffins. My family also thinks it's good for dinner.
