    Is it strange to eat breakfast food for dinner?

    I LOVE eating breakfast food for dinner.  Everything from cereal, bacon/sausage, egss, toast, etc.  Many of my family members think I'm weird.

    I don't think this is strange at all. I eat breakfast foods whenever I feel like having it. Sometimes I prefer eggs, bacon, pancakes, and hashbrowns over other types of dinner foods. Have you ever been up late watching a movie and had a bowl of cereal or oatmeal? It's great! That's why there are restaurants like Denny's that serves breakfast 24/7.

    Not at all. My family has always done it as a traditional treat. Once every couple of months or so, someone will declare a "Breakfast At Night" dinner, and we will plan the menu during the day.

    Sometimes we may just do pancakes, eggs, and sausage; other times it may be the full spread of eggs, ham, red-eye gravy, biscuits, bacon, pancakes and sometimes waffles.

    For a lighter, quicker version: biscuits and sausage gravy with eggs.

    Personally, I hate eating breakfast food in the morning. Smelling bacon or sausage first thing when I wake up has always been very repulsive to me, but I enjoy smelling them cook in the evening. So, breakfast at night is one of my favorite meals.

    No...not at all. I am an equal opportunity eater, who operates under a 24-hour menu. :0)

    Food is food, we don't have special times of the day to eat certain foodstuffs, that is a man made concept.

    My family also does this, and we find that certain meals that are usually served for breakfast such as eggs benedict which can be a bit heavy from the hollandaise sauce is better for lunch or dinner.  I find having eggs (any way you like) is great for dinner!  We've done crepes, pancakes, french toast, you name it.  So I don't think it's weird at all.

    That's actually a family favorite of ours. We love having eggs, bacon and home fries for dinner. Or just cereal.

    I don't prescribe to the notion that their are specific foods for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I eat whatever food I want when I want.

    I've had some coworkers make some snide comments about "how can you eat that for breakfast" and I simply respond that it's food. There is nothing that says its only for dinner.

    Not at all.  I love having eggs and hash browns for lunch too.  Many restaurants are catching on to this trend and serve breakfast all day, like IHOP, Waffle House and Cracker Barrel.

    We often enjoy breakfast foods at dinner time. We eat an omelettes or scrambled eggs or even pancakes. I always thought it was a pretty common practice in Midwest USA.

    In contrast, Peruvians eat foods for breakfast that might seem strange to many of us. In the Andes, a nice bowl of hot soup is the perfect breakfast food to combat frigid morning temperatures. In northern Peru, friends often served us rice, fried fish and fried plantains for breakfast. It's all depends on how you grow up and what you're used to eating.

    I don't think it's strange at all. I love cooking breakfast for dinner and my children love it too. To me breakfast seems to taste better as dinner. I will often eat cereal as a desert. Some times I want something sweet but not cake, pie, or ice cream so I will eat a bowl of cereal and it hits the spot every time!

    No, not weird at all.  We do this at least once or twice a month. 
    For one thing, I'm not a morning person, and am a bit of a slow starter.  I do not want to cook in the morning, so I'll just grab toast, cereal, or something from a box, and I'm good.
    By dinnertime, I'm fully functional, and don't mind whipping up eggs and the trimmings or pancakes, or what-have-you.  ;-)

    Definitely not strange. We each have our personal preferences. In fact, some people do not care for breakfast foods at all and so they eat noodle soup for breakfast. Many people in my family skip breakfast altogether and have for generations, though I do not know the reason other than that they say breakfast causes them to feel queasy.

    There is a combination of Thai foods I could eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner for the rest of my life and that is papaya salad (som tum) with larb (soy and not beef or chicken) and sticky rice. Desert island here I come!

    Two things you can say to those who think it is weird. First, breakfast food is designed to be fast and more convnient. They will argue this point but as a cook the amount of prep work for breakfast is minimal. Second, it is difficult to screw up breakfast food. Ok, you may burn the toast but most everything else is foolproof. Consider this...I travel for work a lot. The customer is expecting you to be at your best. You cannot allow heartburn to effect your performance. So what do you order? How about two eggs, toast and hash browns.

    No. It is not. Although not everyone love eating breakfast food as their dinner. Usually, light food is considered good in your dinner but it's your taste so keep eating what you love. It's not weird, anyway. IMO

    I don't think it's strange at all. But then again, I'm known to eat dinner foods for breakfast from time to time, so I might not be the most qualified person to answer your question. (:

    Sometimes I do scrambled eggs or an omelette for my dinner, and I add in toast and even some orange juice. Some of my friends do think it's a little strange, but sometimes I honestly feel like having 'breakfast-y" food at night!

    I love breakfast for dinner too. I don't think it's weird. Some restaurants serve breakfast all day for people like us. They get it.  smile

    Restaurants like these serve breakfast all day. I don't think they would if no one ever ordered breakfast food for lunch, dinner, or snacks.

    I think that eating dinner food for lunch is just plain odd...

    Certainly not.  Food is food.  The whole point to eating is to nourish yourself.  There are no rules as to what to eat when.  For example, it is not as if you won't get vitamins from eggs if you eat them past a certain time.  So, hey, if you like it - I love it.
