This recipe is kind of like a quiche without the fuss of a crust. It's got a quivering texture similar to custard, even though it calls for an egg substitute mixed with milk, a cup of cheddar means it's a long way from lean. After the easy prep, this dish is bubbling and ready in 30 minutes. Serve some pico de gallo on the side.

These are perfection if you're not into sharing. Twice-baked and topped with pepper jack goodness, these boats float the genius combo of spicy sausage and velvety sweet potatoes, with egg plopped into the middle of all the fun. If you need to cool things down a bit, a dollop of sour cream should do the trick.
