Breakfast for Dinner

So I was totally planning to do a new breakfast cookie post today, but burned my finger kinda bad at dinner, which makes typing a little difficult.

So in honor of breakfast, here are a few links to some of our favorite breakfasts for dinner. I whip these (or things like them) out at least once a week--either when dinner hasn't been well-planned (shocking) or we're short on time (also shocking) or just to keep it cheap. All can be made in 30 minutes or less and cost just a few dollars to feed a family. I think breakfast for dinner a time or two a week is one of the best ways to save money. Serve with some fruit or a salad if you're worried about veggies although several of these even manage to incorporate greens.

1. Bacon Swiss Egg Bake. I love this stuff. And look there's green goodness in it too (pictured above).

2. German Pancakes (Dutch babies). So EASY. And a great thing to do if you find yourself with too many eggs or if eggs go on a wicked sale. (pictured at bottom of post)

3. Potato, Bacon, and Cheddar Bake. You can also add greens or other veggies. Though I truly believe there is nothing in this world wrong with some eggs and potatoes on occasion.

4. Blender Waffles. Make in a blender--forget that egg yolk/white separating stuff. And a nice treat every so often.


  1. Nice concept, thanks :) I love breakfast for other meals too; it's amazing how many veggies you can incorporate into a pancake-y type thing. Ever tried upma? It's a quick, economical and tasty South Indian style savoury porridge with spices and veggies that's traditionally made with semolina, but you can also use bulgur wheat (cracked wheat) or even quinoa. I have a quinoa version on my blog if you're interested...
