Eating breakfast food at dinner sort of feels like you’re getting away with something. What’s really fun is eating foods that you don’t even normally eat at breakfast, usually because they have too many calories!
When I was in college, one of my favorite memories is when my older sister used to invite me over to her house every Sunday night for sourdough pancakes. Sourdough pancakes loaded with butter and real maple syrup have to be like a little preview of the Kingdom!
I remember as a kid that my mom used to make milk toast for dinner sometimes. It was fun for her because it was an easy meal after a hard day of work and it was fun for us because it was super yummy!
When I lived in Florida during the late 80s and early 90s, a good friend used to have us over for crepes (see recipe below). Crepes are delicious for dinner. You can stuff them with anything from cheese, egg, and sausage, to strawberries/blueberries and whipped cream, pudding, Nutella chocolate hazelnut spread (YUM!), peanut butter, yogurt, or just sprinkle them with cinnamon and powdered sugar.
A few years ago my husband and I started a weekly waffle dinner for our home fellowship group, comprised mostly of singles. Every week we’d fry up bacon, eggs, and crisp, golden waffles. Of course, the company was good too, but the waffles really made it what it was!
And no breakfast for dinner ideas would be complete without mentioning quiche!
