Because we miss out on big, yummy breakfasts, we have been eating Brinner (Breakfast for Dinner) more the past few weeks. When you consider that strawberries are on sale a lot right now and breakfast ingredients are usually cheap, you can make a healthful meal for a decent price.
Last week I had a scramble with toast that I duplicated into an omelet tonight for dinner. I threw in what we had, eggs, cheese, ham, spinach, tomatoes, and topped it off with avocado. Since the girls can be picky about their food mixing up, I made them plain scrambled eggs with all of the toppings on the side. Paired up with toast and strawberries, it was a delightful meal for all.
Two weeks ago we had a country breakfast where I made potatoes (sauteed in olive oil with salt and pepper), served it with scrambled eggs, and made buttermilk biscuits topped with gravy. I could eat this every week. I love pairing eggs with potatoes (egg and potato breakfast tacos are my favorite) and there is little better in the food world than peppery gravy covering up a tender and fluffy biscuit.
I've been having a hankering for breakfast quesadillas and eggs Benedict lately so maybe they will appear on our Brinner menu soon!
