Do you have specific ideas of what meals should be eaten at what time of day? Are you the kind of person who divides foods into breakfast foods only, lunch specific and dinner material? I personally believe that it’s a strange way to categorize food. It’s just food and you should be able to eat whatever you want whenever you want. Who said eggs are a breakfast specific food? Why is there a specific breakfast sausage? How come you can have cereal for breakfast but not soup? Don’t you just love having breakfast for dinner? Rules are meant to be broken and here are some fun ways you can do that with your meals. Here are some of the best quick and easy breakfast meals you can also have for dinner and vice versa.
1. Breakfast Pizza
Did you even know such a thing existed? Some might say pizza is a dinner type of food, but we know that pizza is a perfect meal for any time of day and if you can reheat leftover pizza for breakfast you can definitely make breakfast pizza with eggs and bacon and reheat it for dinner.
2. Oil Poached Eggs On Avo Toast
We’ve all had avocado toast for breakfast, but trust me when I say that this oil poaching is a game-changer. And it works for any meal if you think about it. It’s got everything you need: carbs, protein and fat. And it tastes incredible.
3. Chorizo And Fried Egg Breakfast Tacos
Tacos might seem like a lot of work to make first thing in the morning, but if you have the time these are worth it. However, if you don’t, just make more for dinner and you’ll have leftovers you can have in the morning. You’ll just have to heat it up and fry an egg.
4. Breakfast Burritos
Burritos are the best thing ever. Just think about it, is there ever a time in your day when you would voluntarily say no to a burrito when offered? No way. Plus you can literally make them with anything. The filling is so customizable. These are breakfast one but you can definitely have them for dinner. But you can also make regular ones, freeze them and then just reheat when you want them for breakfast.
5. Breakfast Slab Pie
Pies are freaking brilliant and so versatile. You can make them sweet, you can make them savory. They’re just proof that everything is better when encased in dough. This particular slab pie is incredibly easy to make and it’ll last you a week if you just keep it in the fridge.
6. French Toast Bites
I firmly disagree that french toast is just meant to be a breakfast food. If anything – it’s a cheap and easy dessert, or perhaps even just a snack. So it should be perfectly acceptable to have it for dinner too. The french won’t mind, don’t worry.
7. Tater Tot Pizza
Quick, delicious and perfect for breakfast and dinner this tater tot pizza will satisfy your taste buds at any time. And the ingredients are so easily available you probably have them already. I mean who doesn’t have tater tots in the freezer? And just so you know, store-bought dough works just fine too.
8. Green Omelette
I don’t care if you’ve been brainwashed that omelettes are just for breakfast, look at this omelette and tell me it doesn’t look like a yummy and quick dinner? That’s right you can’t. Because mealtimes are a social construct.
9. Portuguese Baked Eggs
It’s eggy enough to taste like breakfast, light enough to be a healthy low carb dinner and delicious enough to put in the effort and make these Portuguese baked eggs a staple in your diet. You’ll make them once and you’ll want to have this every week.
10. Buckwheat Pancakes with Blue Cheese, Bacon and Maple Syrup
Pancakes are a staple in many households, but making buckwheat pancakes gives this childhood classic a whole new twist. The toppings add a twist, the buckwheat deepens the flavor. The resulting breakfast/dinner taste absolutely phenomenal.
