Make breakfast for dinner part of your regular rotation with this list of delicious and easy ideas and recipes, including breakfast sandwiches, omelets, savory oatmeal bowls, breakfast pizza and more!
Having breakfast for dinner was one of my favorite things growing up.
It usually meant it was either omelets or bacon, egg and cheese sandwiches and either way was a win.
Those were both also made by my dad, whereas my mom did all of the cooking otherwise.
So something about it felt fun and special.
Looking back, I realize those were probably really just the nights my mom was too dead tired to want to make a meal.
And wow, do I get that now.
So whether you’re a tired parent, an exhausted worker, a single cooking for one or just love some breakfast foods, this collection is for you.
(Also, feel free to browse my breakfast and brunch category for tons of morning favorites.)
Now, below I’ve got a good ole list for you to peruse. Sometimes we just need to see the idea and we can run with it.
