Breakfast for Dinner?



OK, 'fess up! How many of you do this? I am proud to say, we have breakfast for dinner often; probably 3 times a month.

Now, I'm not saying I plop a bowl of Cheerios in front of everyone and say "Bon Appetit!". No, I mean real honest-to-God breakfast; the kind that nobody seems to have time to make anymore. Which is, of course, the reason it's for dinner!

The other day we had 2 kinds of muffins, bacon and hard boiled eggs--for DINNER. The kids were thrilled and so was I. I'm not much of an eater when I'm pregnant. There isn't a lot that appeals to me and when I can't eat it's so hard to cook for someone else. Blogging is an effort too since this is a food blog and I really don't feel like food right now!

So, back to the topic, my kids love to have pancakes and sausage or eggs and hashbrowns or English muffin breakfast sandwiches or French toast and bacon for dinner. My husband could eat cereal 24/7 and sometimes when he is not in the mood for a full dinner (which is often with his back pain) he will simply eat a bowl of cereal. I admit I have yet to feed the kids cereal for dinner. I just can't do it. I'm sure it's as healthy as anything but it goes against my moral food fiber.

So, when you have breakfast for dinner (you know you do!) what do you have?

I love breakfast for dinner. I usually have an egg white omlette with yummy veggies in it, fruit, and toast. In fact, that's what I've had the past TWO nights! I'm studying for a week of tests, so I need something fast and easy!

When we have breakfast for dinner, it's either pancakes or waffles with scrambled eggs and fruit or french toast and fruit.

I cook all breafast foods for dinner- sometimes I even eat cereal when I'm hot.

When the kids were home, their favorite was pancakes or french toast and bacon. Its still a requirement when they come home :)

My family has always loved to have breakfast for dinner. I usually made scrambled eggs, bacon, pancakes or blueberry muffins, toast for whoever wanted some, and applesauce.

How are you feeling these days, dear Anne?

I make pancakes for dinner once a year on Fat Tuesday. Besides that, I have a few brunch type recipes I make for dinner - Ham and Egg Enchiladas, Lumberjack Hash, Quiche Lorraine.
