Who Likes Breakfast for Dinner?

October 19, 2021

If you’re the kind of person who likes eggs – and not just in the morning –  and has a hankering for breakfast after 5:00 p.m., check out these recipes that bring the comfort of morning meals to evening! Here are a month’s worth of breakfast for dinner options that range from creative, cheesy and carb-loaded, to healthy and substantial.

South of the Border Influences

These Breakfast Quesadillas from Pumpkin n’ Spice (don’t let the name fool you!), are filled with fluffy scrambled eggs, green peppers, bacon and cheddar cheeses, between crisp flour tortillas. While this is neither a particularly new or inventive recipe, it is an easy family favorite and you can change things up with the cheeses, the meats, the veggies or different spices. Makes a difference every thyme!

Breakfast tacos are a nice change of pace from the routine dinner variety and blogger Erin Clarke at Well Plated offers up this combination as the best in Texas. Combining chorizo-spiced turkey sausage and black beans for the filling, Erin ads sliced tomatoes, avocados, shredded cheese and salsa on the side, to fit neatly into small-sized flour tortillas. 

Bacon and Eggs Bites

 Lexi’s Clean Kitchen came up with this Breakfast Fried Rice recipe with four ingredients, although you can add more, or switch out for picky palates. She used leftover rice from a rice-rating exercise and added bacon, eggs, green onions and hot sauce. Try adding diced peppers (after you fry the bacon), baby kale or spinach (when you add the rice and green onion), frozen baby peas or cauliflower rice. 

Meet your new favorite “brinner” – the Poached Egg Burger from the Sunday Supper Movement. It’s the perfect combination of breakfast and dinner, with a pound of ground chuck, Gruyere cheese, caramelized
onions, optional mushrooms, and if it were up to us, candied bacon. Now if you don’t like runny yolks, you know what to do – fry, baby!

Potato Nests, Onions and Biscuits With Gravy

For a yummy and stick-to-your-ribs meal recipe try The College Housewife’s Bourbon Biscuits and Sage Sausage Gravy – prompting us to ask — are you sure this is a breakfast recipe? Way beyond boring, this comforting concoction has a gravy made of breakfast sausage chopped sage and rosemary, topped with sweet bourbon biscuits. But don’t miss blogger Elizabeth’s Smoked Salmon Quiche with Goat Cheese and her Banana Bread with Chocolate Chips! 

At BreakfastForDinner.net — a website devoted to the concept — you’ll find recipes for the griddle, the oven, the skillet and the fry pan – from All Day Eggs to healthy options for athletes – weekend or otherwise. How about a crunchy and eggy Sweet Potato Nest with eggs, link sausage and sliced tomatoes? And for dessert, Vanilla Chia Pudding!

Lori, a culinary school grad and blogger at Foxes Love Lemons, put together this creative meal of Onion Ring, Sausage Egg stacks, for which apparently you don’t need a recipe. It’s a breakfast nee dinner meal, sans the coffee, with a side of asparagus and tomatoes – oh, and extra onion rings!
