Corn, peppers, zucchini and green onions add fresh flavor and color to these dill-seasoned eggs shared by Diane Hixon. "They're great for brunch or served as a nice light supper," suggests the cook from Niceville, Florida.

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.
