Jalapeño, Sausage, Jack, and Egg Breakfast Braid

This 2009 Ultimate Reader Recipe Contest category-winning dish makes an impressive addition to any brunch table. "When I have something spicy, I like to follow it with something fruity. Sweet and savory make a good flavor combination for breakfast in general, so I like to serve this with a fruit garnish like grapes or melon," says recipe contributor, Angela Spengler.

MamaD agrees that this is a winner: “Terrific recipe - perfect for company! I used green onions in place of onions and mild diced green chiles since the crowd I was feeding does not care for heat. You can mix this recipe up in so many ways to fit the taste of those you are serving!
