Breakfast, It’s What’s for Dinner
Breakfast is one of my favorite things—Sunday breakfast especially. It may or may not include eggs but, in my mind, it will always include a serious carb—something really bad for you, loaded with butter, and smothered in sticky-sweet goodness. Or, if you’re really lucky, savory pepper-y goodness.
Weekend breakfasts have lately been disappointing. We just haven’t been doing the Big Sunday Family Breakfast, which could be blamed on a lot of things; there are just too many activities going on. The main reason though? My kids have become cereal fiends.
I have one son who, given the opportunity, will eat cereal morning, noon and night. The other two are not quite as devoted, but they can do their own damage. And don’t get me started on the 46 year-old…
We easily go through five boxes a week, and the boys aren’t even in high school yet. (I buy milk two gallons at a time, every other day, and it’s only going to get worse).
In order to make up for my breakfast deficiency (and to use the increasing number of eggs that we have been getting from the chickens), I have been forced to make breakfast for dinner during the week.
Breakfast for dinner is a woefully underrated dining option. (I mean hundreds of Denny’s can’t be wrong!) There ain’t no better comfort food than some fluffy scrambled eggs and Easy Self-Rising Biscuits with strawberry jam or honey. Let’s just be frank, sausage gravy is almost always a good idea. (Holy cow! My mouth is watering…) Add a little thick cut bacon, (I do mine in the oven.) or a ham steak, (I fry it up in a skillet.) and I am in heaven.
The best part is making enough biscuits to have a mini ham or bacon biscuit sandwich the next morning. (It is entirely possible that I was a lumberjack in another life.) And if you happen to have some leftover Southern style collard greens (‘cause doesn’t everybody?) throw those on your biscuit with the ham or bacon for an out of body experience!
