Breakfast

Light and Fluffy Waffles

These melt-in-your-mouth waffles are so tender, you can skip butter and syrup. (But why would you want to?) —James Schend, Food Editor, Taste of Home magazine, Milwaukee, Wisconsin

Yankee Rancheros

After my in-laws began affectionately referring to me as a “yankee,” I decided I needed to learn to make a few Mexican dishes. These rancheros are super easy and make my Tex-Mex-loving family happy—even if they do come from a Northerner. —Darla Andrews, Schertz, Texas

Sausage Pancake Muffins

My kids love sausage and pancakes but making them during the week was out of the question. I purchased the frozen variety on a stick but wasn’t keen on the calories, additives or price. This version of pigs-in-a-blanket is a great alternative that’s much more cost effective. —Lisa Dodd, Greenville, …

Asparagus & Ham Strata

For a quick and easy make-ahead breakfast, do the prep work the night before. Next morning, just pop it in the oven. This casserole version of quiche is so hearty and delicious. —Alla Gray, St. Thomas, Pennsylvania

Waffle Monte Cristos

Waffles packed with turkey, ham, bacon and apricot preserves have so much sweet, smoky love going on. I use frozen waffles to save time, but have at it if you want to put your waffle iron to good use. —Kelly Reynolds, Urbana, Illinois

Pressure Cooker Carrot Cake Oatmeal

This warm breakfast cereal made in the slow cooker is a great way to get your veggies in the morning and keep a healthy diet! For extra crunch, I garnish individual servings with ground walnuts or pecans.—Debbie Kain, Colorado Springs, Colorado
