    How often do you serve breakfast for dinner?

    We are having pancakes, eggs, and bacon for dinner tonight.  We probably have breakfast for dinner an average of 5-7 times a month.  How often do you serve breakfast for dinner.... and yes, cereal counts!

    We usually have it about three times a week! We like to cook a big breakfast in the morning on Saturday and Sunday, which is the days my husband is off. However I do like to make it for dinner a few times!

    We eat breakfast for supper quite often. In fact, three days ago we had bacon, scrambled eggs, sliced tomatoes, toast and applesauce - kind of a blt in pieces. At other times we will have waffles, pancakes, or French toast. We make our own maple syrup, so it doesn't take much to persuade my family to have something to put it on. Sometimes when we are having eggs and bacon, I will make biscuits. We eat them with the eggs, then pour syrup over them for dessert.

    These breakfast/dinners aren't special occasions, just days when we are hungry but not wanting a real supper. It is easy and fast to whip up eggs or pancakes, and there's not a big mess when it's done. And the best reason is that we don't usually have time for breakfasts like this, so cooking up our favorite food for supper is just the right thing.

    I don't often serve breakfast for dinner.  I more often serve lunch for dinner, although I may occasionally eat last night's dinner for breakfast.  For some reason, I never have dinner for lunch.  Sometimes I don't eat until dinner time and call whatever meal that is either "breakfast", "lunch", or "dinner" (depending, of course, on what the meal consists of).  Then again, sometimes I eat "coffee-all-day" for my three meals and call it both "a liquid diet" and "a drinking problem".

    Usually this happens when we have been out of town and just want something lite and neither of us feel like waiting for me to cook a bigger meal. we have a big breakfast on Saturday and Sunday. I like to make whole wheat pancakes, which he dearly loves, bacon of the turkey variety, eggs, poached, scrambled or fried over easy. We like our syrup heated in the microwave. I sometimes throw in some fried potatoes for good measure. We look forward to our weekend brunches, which are usually served at around 12-1 p.m. Happy breakfast everyone!!

    Perhaps every 4-6 weeks when I might make a fritatta with eggs, onion, peppers, cheese, bacon, or sausage and a side of toast.

    Love breakfast for dinner! I serve it at least once a week.  Eggs, bacon, sausage...they can make a hearty dinner!

    I can't give an exact figure of times we eat breakfast for dinner, but it does happen.  Usually if it's been an extremely long day, or more likely if there isn't anything else to eat (until the next grocery shopping day).  Since we don't have bacon and eggs a lot, and we love bacon and eggs, if we happen to get it that day in our shopping list chances are it will be for dinner that night.  Pancakes are a big favorite any meal of the day, as are waffles.

    Serving breakfast items for dinner time don't really matter for these are consumable food to our delight and tummy satisfaction, really.  I would say that we probably take it easy on occasions like twice in two weeks when we are plain lazy to do any hearty cooking for a better dinner and by this time, there is almost no good choice left in the fridge to come up with a dinner menu.  We would easily have toasted bread with lettuce, fried egg, bacon and cheese. If there is any extra chocolate 'cocoa' porridge transformed from a day old rice, this I heat up again and serve with scrambled egg and the kids enjoy it! I also dive for my favourite- coffee and egg in my rice! I'm a Filipino and Filipinos eat rice 3x a day. Smile! Cheers!

      Do you have a recipe for the sweet rice cakes I've had at Filipino celebrations?  If so, please share!

    Ha Ha only like once a year.  Its a great idea but I always tend to make a better dinner than I do breakfast.  There are only so many breakfast dishes I can make without getting sick of them..

    Every now and then...about once every few months I like to fix biscuits and gravy for dinner. We love bacon gravy with homeade biscuits.
