Breakfast for Dinner Ideas

Rarely is there enough time in the morning for a home-cooked breakfast that doesn’t involve the microwave. Yet nowhere in the rules of life does it say we can’t have these same items for supper. This list includes our top five favorite “breakfast for dinner” ideas we’ve used on several occasions.

1. French Toast
Dip slices of bread in a milk and egg mixture, then fry in pan on medium heat for a few minutes on each side until golden brown. Dust with powdered sugar and serve with syrup. Delicious!

2. Omelets
Making individual omelets for everyone in the morning can be a real chore. It’s best to make these for dinner, since you can make personalized omelets for everyone based on their tastes. Just a few suggestions for ingredients include cheese, ham, green peppers, mushrooms, or onions.

3. Pancakes from Scratch
It may be easy to grab a box of pancake mix and whip it up fast, but when was the last time you made pancakes from scratch? Or better yet, make special types like pumpkin, blueberry, or chocolate chip.

4. Sausage and Bacon
If you need a side, pull out the sausage and bacon! There’s nothing that goes better with pancakes, eggs, or toast than a few slices of bacon or sausage links. Normally in the morning you don’t have time to properly cook items such as this, so they made a perfect side for a “breakfast night”.

5. Bacon, Egg, and Toast Cups
This gem of a recipe we latched on to some time ago, and fell in love with. Due to the amount of time it takes to prepare them, though, it’s became a dinner item instead of for breakfast. All you need is a muffin tin, toast, eggs, and bacon. Seasoning is optional, but we always use a pinch of salt and pepper. (Full recipe here)

Need additional ideas? Just think of the best breakfast you’ve ever eaten, yet never had time to make for your family in the morning. Can you make it on a weeknight? How about a weekend? Try it out!
