I haven't made these tartlets yet, but they sound pretty easy (can make the phyllo stuff ahead of time) and you can fill them with whatever you want.

This trifle is delicious.

Hashbrown Egg Cups

  • ¾ cup shredded Cheddar cheese (3 oz)
  • 2
    cups thawed shredded hashbrowns (from 20-oz bag)
  • ¼ cup
    chopped green onions
    (4 medium)
  • ½ teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 1/8
    teaspoon pepper
  • 2
  • 1/8
    teaspoon Italian seasoning

  • Heat oven to 400°F. Spray 2 (2-cup) ovenproof bowls
    or ramekins with cooking spray. Reserve 2 tablespoons of the cheese for
    topping. In medium bowl, mix remaining cheese, the potatoes, onions, ¼
    teaspoon of the seasoned salt and the pepper. Press mixture in bottom
    and up side of each bowl, leaving indentation in center.
  • Bake
    25 to 30 minutes or until golden brown and crisp. Remove from oven.
    Break egg into center of each cup. Sprinkle with remaining ¼ teaspoon
    seasoned salt, the Italian seasoning and reserved 2 tablespoons cheese.
  • Return
    to oven; bake 8 to 12 minutes longer or until eggs are set and of
    desired doneness.

Orange Glazed Blueberry Scones

  • Scones:
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  • In a large bowl, sift together flour, baking powder,
    salt and sugar; mix thoroughly. Cut in butter using 2 forks or a pastry
    blender. The butter pieces should be coated with flour and resemble
  • In another bowl, mix buttermilk and egg together,
    and then add to the flour mixture. Mix just to incorporate, do no
    overwork the dough.
  • Roll blueberries in flour to coat,
    this will help prevent the fruit from sinking to the bottom of the scone
    when baked. Fold the blueberries into batter, being careful not to
    bruise. Drop large tablespoons of batter on an ungreased cookie sheet.
  • Bake
    for 15 to 20 minutes until brown. Cool before applying orange glaze.
  • Orange
  • To prepare Orange Glaze: combine butter, sugar,
    orange zest, and juice over a double boiler. Cook until butter and sugar
    are melted and mixture has thickened. Remove from heat and beat until
    smooth and slightly cool. Drizzle or brush on top of scones and let
    glaze get hazy and hardened.

I think the scones are a Tyler Florence recipe, but I'm not sure. I have a good recipe for Blueberry Coffeecake, too. Sorry I don't have more. I don't entertain much.
