There’s nothing like breakfast for dinner at the end of a trying day because eggs, bacon, pancakes, and sausage have the magical ability to make everything better.
why make breakfast for dinner?
One reason I love eating breakfast foods for dinner is because it gives me an excuse to cook some of my favorite foods that I’m rarely up for making at 6am. But by 6 pm they can seem like a breeze compared to conventional dinner! And when you’re feeling kind of overwhelmed by your day, nothing amps up the cozy factor like brinner.
Eggs Benedict might be a little bit too high brow for a down home brinner, but all those flavors are represented beautifully in this quick and easy quiche. Don’t forget the Hollandaise sauce! My version is so easy and takes only 30 seconds.
Take classic pasta carbonara, swap in bacon for pancetta, add extra eggs into the equation, and you’ve got the best breakfast/dinner hybrid there is. I love to eat this dish for actual breakfast, too, so save your leftovers!
The classic brunch-y duo of salmon and eggs becomes dinner worthy in this classic, flavorful British rice dish. A very Downton Abbey style brinner.
These tasty homemade breakfast sausage patties make a fabulous dinner paired with a couple fried eggs and toast. They’d also make a great breakfast sandwich with any of my biscuits.
This super creamy, custard-y quiche is French culinary luxury at it’s best. I often use store bought pie crusts for my quiches, which makes them a totally weeknight-friendly dinner option if you keep a few stashed in the freezer at all times.
Sometimes it just has to be pancakes for dinner, right? At least save yourself some time by making them with this ingenious method, right in the oven! I was skeptical, but these pancakes turn out fluffy and perfect with so much less effort and mess than flipping them on the griddle. Once you’re hooked, try my strawberry sheet pan pancakes and my pumpkin crunch sheet pan pancakes.
This elegant and super quick dish makes a fine dinner paired with some toasty bread. The fresh herbs really make it, in my opinion, so definitely don’t skimp.
Crisp bacon and an egg baked right on top takes this mac and cheese into delicious brinner territory with very little extra effort. This is a personal fave of mine, it just makes me happy.
When you just need it all, this breakfast casserole delivers. Eggs, sausage, crispy tater tot crust, cheese, it’s like the breakfast buffet of your dreams in one delicious dish.
When something lighter yet still nourishing is in order, eggs and fresh green vegetables make a healthy and delicious pairing. Fresh goat adds creaminess and tang.
These cheddar cheese and cornmeal biscuits have amazing flavor and texture that makes an ordinary ham and egg sandwich dinner-worthy.
These breakfast pastries might look fancy, but they are so easy to make with store bought puff pastry, some bright and healthy veggies, and a cracked egg right in the middle.
This delicious quiche is all about the mild flavor of sweet onions, chives, and some good quality, grainy mustard. Serve it with a side salad for the perfect meal that works literally any time of day.
