“My husband and I enjoy this tasty, colorful dish as much for light, late-night suppers as we do for brunch,” writes Pauline Howard from Lago Vista, Texas. “We often serve it with a side of fresh fruit.”

Because my family is busy, we often gather for Sunday brunch to discuss plans for the upcoming week over servings of this hearty egg dish. It's colorful and special enough to prepare for holiday get-togethers, too.
This flavorful breakfast bake comes together quickly using handy convenience foods, including refrigerated hash browns, biscuit mix and store-bought pesto. For a seafood variation, replace the ham with crabmeat.
For me, the combination of sweet and savory along with easy preparation make this Italian-inspired strata a winning dish for home cooks everywhere! It can be served for breakfast, brunch, or as a late afternoon meal.—Naylet LaRochelle, Miami, Florida
When our family sits down for breakfast on days when this do-ahead dish is on the menu, I can relax and join them. I like to serve it with fresh fruit and homemade rolls. Plus, it adds a nice touch to a celebration brunch.
For a fun change-of-pace breakfast, try these sausage and hash brown frittatas perked up with salsa. To lower the dish’s cholesterol even more, use egg substitute instead of the whole eggs. —Kathy Brodin, Wauwatosa, Wisconsin
"I always cook up a storm during the holidays," says Barbara Nowakowski of North Tonawanda, New York. Spinach and red peppers give festive Christmas color to her satisfying bake that boasts Italian sausage, lots of cheese and a short prep time.
This pretty quiche is best fresh out of the oven when the cheese is wonderfully gooey," says Sherri Crews of Vilano Beach, Florida. "I especially enjoy it in summer with vine-ripe tomatoes and fresh basil."
