To me, there is almost nothing better on a relaxing day than cooking up breakfast for dinner. With my strong love of all foods breakfast, from buttery scones to fluffy scrambled eggs, this meal swap is appropriate no matter the season.
There is something almost sinful about devouring a plate of pancakes after the sun has gone down, and that pleasure just can't be beat for a breakfast lover like me.
The key to breakfast for dinner is preparing simple, classic dishes that are heavy enough to hold you through the night. While a bowl of cereal is delicious at any time of day, it can have you back at the box in just a few hours. Look for breakfast foods higher in protein and fiber for a happy medium that will keep you full until morning.
