This Chicken Tamale casserole is a quick and easy swap for more traditional tamales - but just as delicious! "I came up with this Mexican dish to satisfy my cravings for the tamales I had at Mexican restaurants when I was growing up in Houston. Homemade tamale recipes are too time-consuming to prepare for weeknight meals, but I discovered a corn bread mix approximates the flavor." —Risë Minton, Smyrna, GA

Savory breakfast sausage, prepared diced potatoes, bell peppers and onions are cooked and scrambled with fresh eggs for this crowd-pleasing breakfast special. Enjoy with toast and fresh fruit for a complete breakfast feast.
Dessert is individual molten chocolate cakes. They're simple and elegant, and they bake in under 10 minutes in a standard muffin pan. The best part about these little beauties is that the cake batter is extremely forgiving: You can make it up to six hours before you plan to serve the cakes. Fill the pans with batter and refrigerate, but remember to remove the pan far enough in advance of baking to let the batter return to room temperature.
