Quiche a la Benedict

Rating: 4.59 stars
It's basically asparagus quiche, but with Canadian bacon. Top with your favorite Hollandaise sauce to serve. Enjoy!

Pronounced 'queen-a-mahn,' kouign-amann wouldn't be one of the world's greatest pastries if it also weren't a legendary labor of love. The irresistible combination of sweet, salty, sticky, buttery, crispy, flaky, and tender is something you must experience to believe. Made with bread flour, the dough is a little different from croissants or puff pastry. Salt is also key here; the authentic ones are about as savory as they are sweet.

Egg Explosion!

Rating: 4.64 stars
This casserole has been served at our Easter Sunday brunch for over 30 years. It's easy to adjust the spiciness to suit your family's taste. My family likes it spicy, so we even have a bottle of hot sauce on the side for an additional kick! We serve this with a fancy fruit salad and all the Easter fixings for a delicious brunch buffet! Serve with additional sour cream, if desired

Pecan Pineapple Coffee Cake

Rating: 4.23 stars
Quick and easy; tastes like pineapple upside-down cake. Coconut may be added to batter to make it taste like a pina colada cake.

Torta Rustica

Rating: 4.58 stars
This savory pie is served at room temperature. Two teaspoons dried basil may be substituted for fresh basil. Use ham or prosciutto ham.

Bird's Nest Breakfast Cups

Rating: 4.15 stars
I got the basics of this recipe from a friend of mine and thought it was a great idea since these little nests can be made ahead, which I love. They are delicious, easy to make, and can be customized to your own tastes. I not only use the recipe as a delicious grab-and-go breakfast, but serve it to guests nestled into some lovely cheese grits, alongside fresh fruits and French toast made on a panini press. Oh, and don't forget the mimosas!

Asparagus Quiche

Rating: 4.61 stars
A delectable combination of ingredients that result in a tasty quiche dish.

Aunt Norma's Rhubarb Muffins

Rating: 4.73 stars
These fabulous muffins have a crunchy sweet sugar topping and are great with no extra added butter or jam.

Chef John's Quiche Lorraine

Rating: 4.83 stars
In my opinion, a proper quiche should be rich, custardy, and luxurious--not some kind of dense, baked omelet. This has only enough eggs and yolks to hold things together, but that means you need to let it cool to just warm before serving, to fully enjoy the experience.

Almond Rhubarb Coffee Cake

Rating: 4.59 stars
This cake is sweet and almondy with rhubarb delectability.

Baked Omelet

Rating: 4.59 stars
A great holiday breakfast.
