We've had plenty of pizza for breakfast in our day, so scrambled eggs for dinner isn't too far of a stretch! Aside from being a fun change of pace, making breakfast for weeknight dinners has a few other real advantages...

If you think about it, our favorite breakfasts are exactly that because they tend to be quick, satisfying, and easily made from ingredients we have on hand (namely, eggs!). What could be better for those weeknights when you come home starving, have almost nothing in the fridge, and lack any motivation to cook? Breakfast is always a sure bet.

One of the standard meals in our house is simply scrambled eggs and toast. Sometimes we throw in some leftover veggies or a sprinkle of cheese, but mostly it's just plain old scrambled eggs and toast. Another favorite is a bowl of steel-cut oatmeal with nuts and dried fruit.

Here are a few more ideas from our archives:

Salmon Scrambled Eggs and Toast
Eggs with Pork Debris
Fried Egg and Collard Greens over Polenta
Fluffy Ricotta Pancakes
Steel Cut Oats with Dates, Coconut, Cinnamon, and Pecans

Do you have a favorite breakfast-for-dinner meal?
