At one time or another we are all looking for a fun new thing to cook for dinner.
The old reliable menu items have lost their luster and we need something that will actually inject some flavor and fun back into the last meal of the day. Breakfast for dinner is something kids the world over love to have every now and then, but you can also make some truly tasty dishes that adults will gobble up just as quickly as the younger generation will. Here are the top ten breakfast for dinner menus that will make everyone happy.
10. Huevos Rancheros
Eggs are certainly a big part of a morning breakfast but these can actually be eaten anytime of day and can certainly be included on any of the best breakfast for dinner menus. The dish consists of eggs, tortillas, chili sauce and usually have some sort of beans as well.
9. Steak and Eggs
Again, eggs have long been a staple of a good American breakfast but when you throw some good lean steak into the mix you are getting a menu that can make up the first or last meal of the day. This particular menu usually includes some sort of potato, either hash brown or home fry to pull it all together.
8. Breakfast Pizza
This is one of the ultimate breakfast turned dinner recipes because you are literally having something you would have for dinner, then putting breakfast ingredients on it and then actually having it for dinner. There are all kinds of different recipes for this menu item but you need to make sure that breakfast foods are the main parts.
7. French Toast
This dish is so flavorful and rich that you really don’t need to put a lot together with it in order to make it worthy of getting a dinner setting. You could add some good melon to pull off the breakfast feel while eating it in the evening.
6. Belgian Waffles
Much like the french toast, Belgian Waffles are big and thick enough that they can be a standalone meal when it comes to having dinner by eating something you normally would only have in the morning. You can even throw some big time sugar or chocolate syrup over these and make them the dessert part of the menu.
5. Pancakes, Bacon and Eggs
You can always go all out and throw together an entire breakfast menu only have it when the sun goes down. A couple of pancakes, a couple of strips of bacon and a couple of eggs, sunny side up will make a taste treat that can’t be beat.
4. Pigs in a Blanket
Most people think of pigs in a blanket and they think of hotdogs baked inside some sort of breading. You can give this a specific breakfast feel by going with sausage instead of hotdogs and pancakes instead of breading. You could also use something like crescent roll dough to give it a little more of a late evening meal feel.
3. Eggs Benedict
This is another dish that allows for a later meal because, in the end it is more than just a couple of eggs. This is a high class enough looking dish that people can even host an entire dinner party with a menu that has eggs Benedict on it.
2. Fruit Salad
People eat salads all the time as dinner, if you go with a fruit salad you can have the breakfast time feel of this particular dinner. There is literally no end to the different kinds of fruit salads you can go with and still have a nice filling meal that will keep you sated all night.
1. Biscuits and Gravy
This is another meal that has breakfast ingredients AND ingredients that people eat at night as well. This is even better if the gravy actually has breakfast sausage pieces mixed in.
