Breakfast for Dinner

by in Recipes, September 30th, 2011

Skip the boring bowls of pasta, grilled chicken and delivery pizza. For dinner tonight, serve up a switcheroo in the form of eggs, bacon, hash, French toast and sweet maple syrup. Our quick and easy menu below is full of classic and creative takes on what is the most important meal of the day, no matter what time of the day you eat it.

Simple yet hearty, Food Network Magazine’s Corned Beef Hash (pictured above) is a meal in and of itself. Sautee corned beef, fresh veggies and potatoes until brown and crisp, and top with cheese and a silky fried egg for dinner in less than 45 minutes.

Food 2’s easy Fresh Thyme and Vegetable Frittata incorporates fresh broccoli and squash, creamy Parmesan and mozzarella cheeses, chewy sun-dried tomatoes and delicate herbs. Serve along with toasted baguette slices slathered with butter for a satisfying supper.

Looking for something sweet to balance all of that savory goodness? Try a Cinnamon French Toast Bake from  Pour whisked eggs, half-and-half, butter and syrup over sugary cinnamon-swirl bread for a decadent make-ahead, one-pan meal.

Just in case you’re not ready to completely abandon your old dinner standbys, Kelsey Nixon from Cooking Channel has a burger — the Breakfast Burger (pictured above) — that is just for you. With a sausage patty as the meat, an English muffin for the bun and eggs, bacon and spicy ketchup as toppings, this eat-with-your hands meal transitions perfectly from breakfast to dinner.

    At the end of the week it's tough to figure out any menu item that is innovative, easy and enticing to my entire crew. I love the idea of a twist on the "normal" dinner menu. Who wouldn't love a breakfast burger for dinner!?! The best part is that it's a total switch from the norm! I think my kids are going to love this! This Food Network blog is awesome! I feel so much better when I can feed my family something home cooked rather than grab a pizza or take-out dinner! Awesome!

  9. I was reading some of your posts on this internet site and I conceive this site is very informative! Continue posting.

  10. A fascinating discussion is definitely worth comment. I do think that you need to write more about this topic, it might not be a taboo subject but generally people don’t speak about such subjects. To the next! Many thanks!!
