5 Reasons to Have Breakfast for Dinner

breakfast1. It’s Fun!

We started out having breakfast for dinner once in awhile when my husband wasn’t going to be home. The kids thought it was great. Then, we’d have it for April Fool’s Day or a Backwards Day, where we have dinner foods for breakfast and breakfast foods for dinner. It is still something the kids will ask for and I look forward to making.

2. Inexpensive

Breakfast for Dinner can be inexpensive, especially compared to the price of meats. There are many breakfast ideas that use common ingredients that you probably have in the house already. Eggs, flour, potatoes, fruits, veggies are just a few options that are healthy, affordable and can make a wide variety of meals. It’s also cheaper than fast food!

3. Quick & Easy…or Not!

Most of my go-to breakfast dishes can be put on the table in much less than a half hour. Then again, this might be the perfect time to try one of those recipes you’ve saved to make “someday”. Mornings can be hectic or maybe you’ve just been too tired to try something new or adventurous when you’re first waking up. Try it for dinner!

4. Health Benefits

Some people like to have a lighter dinner for health reasons. There are many light options for dinners that can be filling but don’t make your body work hard to digest before bed. Adding fruits to your pancakes, waffles or crepes and adding chopped veggies to an omelet are just a few ways to get your daily servings satisfied. It’s also quicker & healthier than drive-through stops.

5. It’s Delicious!

Breakfast foods are my favorite category (besides desserts). I would rather eat breakfast foods throughout the day than anything else. For me, lunch is just a late breakfast or leftover dinner, something to get me through the day. Pinterest is filled with tasty ideas! Taste of Home is another site I search for great recipes.
