Adobo sauce adds so much extra flavor that you won't even miss the smaller amounts of butter and egg yolks in this smoky hash. But here's a tip: Add a splash of white vinegar to the poaching water right before you drop in the eggs. It helps keep them from separating as they cook.—Brooke Keller, Lexington, Kentucky
From time to time, we have stuffed French toast made from rich buttery brioche. One Father's Day when I wanted to make it for my husband, the store was out of brioche, so I tried croissants instead. They turned out to be even simpler to use.
"We like the sweet cinnamony flavor of this instant oatmeal at our house," relates Robert Caummisar of Grayson, Kentucky. The mix makes it convenient to zap a bowl in the microwave for a speedy breakfast. If you like milk with your oatmeal, you can pour a little on top before serving.
Fresh berries and cream cheese create the creamy middle in these French toast sandwiches. "Because you prepare this breakfast bake the night before, it's perfect for overnight guests," writes Karen Sharp from Harvard, Illinois. "Serve it with bacon and fresh fruit."
“This casserole has a bit of a zip to it because of the Pepper Jack cheese,” says Anita Jones of Raytown, Missouri. “Instead of plain white bread, it uses seasoned croutons, which give it more flavor.”
For a light lunch or brunch that costs just 76 cents per serving, fix this quiche-like dish made with crescent roll dough. "This zucchini pie is delicious, easy and inexpensive," writes Melissa Collins from South Daytona, Florida.
“This sweet and colorful fruit compote is perfect with an egg casserole at a holiday brunch. It can bake right alongside the eggs, so everything is conveniently done at the same time,” notes Joyce Moynihan in Lakeville, Minnesota.
In place of potato pancakes, try these cute rounds that are very simple to prepare with on-hand ingredients. Not only are they tasty, they're pretty, too. To eliminate some of the fat, I use a nonstick griddle coated with butter-flavored cooking spray.
