Breakfast for Dinner

We like to have breakfast for dinner every once in a while. I know this freaks some people out (ahem), but hey, we’re all adults here. And if you can’t choose to shake things up a bit and have breakfast at dinner time, what can you choose in life really? So put on your big girl pants and choose to have breakfast at night. You’ll like it, trust me.

Yesterday’s breakfast dinner (breakner? brinner?) was less an expression of free will and more of a “there’s really no dinner food in the house,” type of deal. It all worked out pretty well in the end though. Let’s take a look.

Potatoes (2). Slice ’em and dice ’em, baby. Throw them in a hot skillet with some olive oil or butter. Or bacon grease. I was really angry when I realized I had used butter instead of bacon grease. Foolish.

Onions (1/2). Add them to the taters.

Green Pepper (1). I realize this is a lot of pepper in relation to the potatoes and onions, but we are trying to recover from the holidays, folks. We need us some veggies.


Seasonings. Throw some in. We love this Goya Adobo with Cumin. Seriously, we use it at least a few times a week. It’s an addiction.

Now let the potato/onion/pepper mixture brown up a little, then cover it so the potatoes will cook a little faster.

While that’s cooking, whip up some eggs and milk. I know this is a picture of 4 eggs, but I threw in 2 more when they didn’t look like enough. Just use your imagination. 4 eggs +2 eggs = 6 eggs.

When the potatoes and veggies are looking nice and done like this


Throw in the egg mixture

Stir it all around a bit, and when the eggs are almost to your liking, add some cheese. As much as you want. Because it’s all about making choices here.

Mmmm,who’s hungry? Grab a plate and dig in. And don’t forget to add a little more cheese for good measure.
