I'm particularly proud of the Smashed Potato Bomb, as I am with Quesadillas Benedict, because I made it up on the spot and it took exactly 10 minutes to cook. Well, that's not entirely true, I had a leftover baked potato from the night before, so that shaved off about half an hour. After you bake the potato (or if you use leftovers), it takes 10 minutes.

The basic formula is the same, but what kind of beer? What kind of cheese? What kind of mustard? And does it have to be bread? Answers to all these questions after the jump.

Yes, Cheez-Its make up the breadcrumb crust for this baked macaroni and cheese recipe. The crunchy texture and amped up cheesiness works so well you'll wonder why you haven't been crumbling those little devils over your macaroni for decades. Plus if you have kids, they'll think you're a superhero.

Just because I eat these super-easy quesadillas benedict for dinner more often than breakfast doesn't mean they're not perfect for brunch. If anything, it should elevate them to the title of Ultimate Brunch. Simple, yet impressive to behold, if you can fry an egg and/or make a quesadilla, a tasty, photogenic brunch is right around the corner.
