Do you think someone who always hated the "real thing" might like the vegan version? I've never made a vegan quiche, omelet, or frittata because I always hated the eggy ones.

I love the ones from VB and the egg versions always made me gag.

Yes, me too. I also dislike crusts so I only make frittatas or crustless quiche. I think the frittatas and quiches hold up well and are good served at room temp, so great for a potluck.

Mostly savory things, like a veggie pie, raw crackers and home-made bread. So maybe something slightly sweet might be better. I've made blueberry muffins (with the Bakery-style berry muffin recipe) before for a similar get-together and everyone loved them. I saw a Carrot pineapple muffin recipe in Veganomicon that sounded delish!

I made a kale fritatta with the chard fritatta recipe once and it was okay, but nothing fabulous. I'll have to try the quiche sometime.

The potato spinach squares sound awesome! Must make soon.

I've made the scrambles and frittatas, but never the quiche before. I finally broke down and made it today. I had some cauliflower and orange bell pepper so I used that along with the broccoli.

Amazing! I loved it!

I made the buckwheat pancakes yesterday and today for breakfast. They were quite good. Not as good as gluten containing pancakes but still good. I'm trying to cut back on calories so I left out the oil. They probably were missing the oil but they still did ok. I topped them with agave and chopped apple.

I hadn't opened Vegan Brunch in so long (probably because I never have time to make a real breakfast) but today it caught my eye. I made the cornbread waffles as pancakes...I just added a bit of flour to thicken the batter, and they were DELICIOUS.

THEN I used the bagel recipe to make whole-wheat cranberry bagels. WHY HAVE I NEVER MADE BAGELS BEFORE???? They are so good. I may have eaten two in one go...straight out of the oven. YUM.

Currently making chocolate beer waffles for impromptu Valentines breakfast. One of my favorites. They always come out of the waffle iron all limp and sad, but after they sit for like two seconds, they're crispy and silky on the inside. Weirdest waffle ever.

I've been right into making the bagels lately from this book--they're awesome and it's a nice, easy, foolproof recipe!

Also a fan of the corn biscuits. Great pantry recipe for when you need something quick, bready (and corn-y) to eat alongside chiles or beany or whatever stews. Nice and quick to whip up while things are simmering.

The bagels and the sausage recipes are probably my 2 most used recipes period. I made the English muffins for the first time, and they are miles away better than the junk at the store. They are even good just plain and untoasted.

I was inspired by this thread to make English muffins this morning. My husband kept raving and raving about them! He wouldn't shut up about them! That's high, high praise coming from him, since I usually have to use a crowbar to pry his opinions on food out of him.

Ok, so, besides the English muffins, is there any recipes that are absolute MUST TRY recipes? My MIL got VB out at the library for me so my time is limited.

I looked through and everything looks REALLY yummy.

East coast coffee cake. I can't describe how good it is.

The bagels! (put the toppings on after boiling/before baking, not before boiling like the recipe says - I do mine "everything" style). Another recipe that was a hit in my household was the courico tacos with pineapple salsa.

The Chelsea Waffles are my absolute favorite waffles. The peanut butter ones are really good too. Also, the tempeh crabcakes and the caramelized onion quiche.

Another vote for the coffee cake. I usually do the chocolate raspberry variation. Also any of the muffins that you think look good (I've made all except lemon poppyseed because I just don't like that kind).

All the sausages. The cinnamon rolls (underbake slightly for extra moist and gooey goodness). Bakery-style berry muffins (my go-to muffin recipe).

The overnight yeasted waffled! Some of the best waffles I've ever had. Isa was really right about that amazing deep yeast flavor from letting it rise overnight in the fridge.
