Breakfast For Dinner

Posted on Updated on


Do you ever make breakfast for dinner? I go through phases where I get to the end of the day, and all I want is something I’d order for brunch. Though eggs are usually a staple breakfast-for-dinner food at my place, I recently realized that French toast can be great too.

not gonna win any beauty contest, but hey…

I recently made ricotta-stuffed French toast, which sounds super-decadent, but actually, if you use skim milk and low-or-non-fat ricotta and cooking spray instead of butter, is fairly reasonable. I used whole wheat bread, but any kind would work. As far as toppings go, I heated up some frozen berries and added a teaspoon of high-quality maple syrup. A little goes a long way on a small plate, just saying. 

Because I’m weird, I had a salad on the side because it’s still not dinner to me without vegetables. Why not? It’s all about balance.

    I always want to make breakfast for dinner, particularly because I LOVE breakfast foods, but tend to never want the really special dishes (like french toast! and waffles!) in the AM because they slow me down, rather than give me much energy….Those kind of breakfasts seem more like dessert to me. But then when I think about them as dessert, that seems like…to much like a MEAL! And then when I think about it for dinner, I stress out because I’d be missing the veggies. So I *love* your side of salad idea…I just have to get over the sort of them-inappropriateness of mixing flavors like that. ; )

      I feel the exact same way—I always feel like waffles or french toast for breakfast will put me right back to sleep, and dinner without veggies feels weird! The salad is a good fix.
