Frugal Kitchens 101 - Breakfast Isn't Just For Breakfast

Frugal Kitchens 101

In today's busy world many home cooks overlook the possibility of serving breakfast dishes for dinner.  However, breakfast offerings are perfectly acceptable dishes for dinner.  They are often quick and easy to prepare.  They tend to be relatively inexpensive as well.  Today's Frugal Kitchens 101 focuses on a few breakfast dishes that do double duty as dinner dishes.

  • eggs - The simple bacon, eggs and hash browns is a meal that is offered at most truck stops twenty four hours a day.  This meal is equally good as a dinner at home.  Omelets are an excellent dinner dish as are a variety of the egg based breakfast casseroles.
  • bacon - The dinner meat does not always have to be a meat that takes longer preparation.  We often have peameal bacon as the dinner meat.  It cooks fast and tastes great.   Even regular bacon can be used for the dinner meat.  It is wonderful cut into pieces then stirred into vegetables like cooked cabbage or mashed potatoes. 
  • sausage - Breakfast sausage links are quick to cook and work quite nicely as a dinner meat.
  • pancakes - Pancakes are a nice change of pace from other meat based dinner meals.  Kids really like the idea of having pancakes for dinner too.
  • waffles - Waffles can be served plain much the same as pancakes or they can be dressed up as the dinner meal or even turned into a dessert.  The possibilities are endless and they are sure to please.
  • hash browns - Hash browns are a nice change from the regular potato offerings.  They are quick and easy to prepare as well.
