Reasons We Love Breakfast For Dinner!

As breakfast is the most delicious meal of the day, sometimes you just need to have it twice.

  • It’s easy. Breakfast foods like Pancakes, Waffles, or Scrambled Eggs are some of the easiest to master.
  • It’s delicious. From sweet to savory, breakfast features some of our favorite flavors and tasty dishes!
  • Easy too customize. Add any of your favorite ingredients to these dishes, especially veggies like spinach, onions, tomato, bell peppers, or different cheeses or a variety of meats like ham, bacon, sausage, etc.
  • It’s special. Breakfast dishes lend themselves to special occasions. Think Mother’s Day or Christmas morning. Any of these holidays could include breakfast for dinner!

If mornings are busy, and you only have time for a quick something, “do it up” in the evening with the whole breakfast shebang!

Toppings

Topping your dish can be just as important as the dish itself!

How Much to Serve

Use this as a general guideline:

  • quiche: 1 slice per person
  • savory casserole/strata: 1-2 (2-inch squares) per person
  • pancakes: 3 per person 
  • waffles, french toast, bagels, muffins, large biscuits: 2 per person 
  • coffee cake, sweet rolls, sweet bake/casserole: 1½ slices per person
  • bacon or sausage: 3-4 slices per person
  • eggs any style: 2 per person
  • juice or milk: 1 cup per person

Brinner Tips

Most breakfast dishes are best served fresh. If you are feeding a crowd, this can get a bit tricky. 

  • Keep it fresh. Get a nice stockpile of pancakes or waffles going before breakfast starts. As they finish cooking, place them on a baking sheet in a warm oven (about 200°F) for up to 30 minutes. 
  • Breakfast casseroles are easy to throw together, and most can be made ahead of time. Simply combine the ingredients the night before, cover, and refrigerate until morning.
  • Leftovers can be frozen to be reheated later. I have a great post about freezing pancakes. The info can easily apply to waffles and French toast.
