On a busy morning, we’re lucky if we can manage to grab a granola bar on our way out the door. That leaves a measly two days a week to actually enjoy our very favorite meal, breakfast. Thankfully, we found a solution to this problem: brinner (or, you know, breakfast for dinner). Breakfast foods are typically quick to prepare, pretty healthy (since they’re meant to fuel you for the day ahead) and TBH, we’ll sign up for any plan that involves eating more bacon. Here are 32 breakfast for dinner ideas that will kick your supper rut to the curb.
32 Breakfast for Dinner Ideas That Will Yank You Straight Out of Your Cooking Rut
7. Joanna Gaines’s Asparagus And Fontina Quiche
This recipe is just about as versatile as it gets. It’s fabulous with fruit salad for brunch or with green salad for dinner. It’s also elegant enough for company but easy enough to throw together on a weeknight (praise the store-bought pie crust!). Yet again, Joanna Gaines can do no wrong.
12. Red Shakshuka
Talk about an impressive centerpiece. This Israeli dish is loaded with produce—like garlic, red bell pepper and crushed tomatoes—as well as fresh herbs. The star, though, is the runny eggs begging to be dipped into with a hunk of crusty bread.
17. Savory Slow Cooker Oatmeal With Crispy Bacon
Forget the brown sugar, chocolate chips and fresh fruit—have you tried savory oatmeal? This one is closer to risotto than the sweet stuff you're used to, thanks to garlic, herbs and all the Parmesan. We'll take extra bacon and avocado on top, please.
21. Overnight Waffles With Whipped Meyer Lemon Cream And Strawberries
Whip up the yeast batter in the morning and let it sit until you get home at night. Then, make the four-ingredient whipped cream while the waffle iron preheats. It's so good, you might never look at syrup the same way again.
25. Sheet Tray Pancakes With Peaches And Strawberries
Aren't they pretty? They'll look even better once you realize you won't have to do any flipping (and you'll only have one dirty pan to clean after dinner).
27. One-pan Eggs With Asparagus And Tomatoes
Six ingredients + 30 minutes + your trusty baking sheet = the simplest, most nutritious dinner you've ever made. One serving boasts only 158 calories and a whopping 11 grams of protein. Feel free to make it heartier with a side of white rice.
29. Southwestern Tofu Scramble And Breakfast Sweet Potatoes
Eggs are a no-brainer...unless you're vegan. Substitute this simple tofu scramble that's cooked with red onion, bell peppers, asparagus and lots of seasoning.
30. Sheet Pan Eggs With Smoked Salmon, Cream Cheese And Dill
Just assemble, bake and devour. Serve a slice with toast and a green salad, or go full breakfast mode instead by sandwiching a slab on an everything bagel.
