Fall in Love with Breakfast Again — at Dinner

Fall in Love with Breakfast Again — at Dinner

Breakfast is all too often forgotten or skipped during the workweek, but on the weekend, it suddenly takes on a charged, almost obsessive appeal for people when it gets pushed to a few hours later in the day and gets renamed brunch. And that's because nobody wants to wake up for breakfast.

So we thought: Why not push back breakfast even farther? Why not make it for dinner? Perhaps then, people will start having breakfast every day of the week.

We're talking about a quick and easy meal here. Cooking dinner generally requires a bit more commitment than cooking breakfast, we think, so breakfast is a logical choice for anyone who may be reluctant to cook in the evening. Eggs, for example, in any shape or form, are one of the quickest things you can whip up in the kitchen. Fancy a basic cheese omelette? Ten minutes. (Five if you're practiced or a seasoned French chef.)

So what's good this week? Well, Nathan Cyphert and Dan Myers win major points for creativity with their respective recipes, the French Toast Turkey Burger and the Bacon, Egg, and Cheese French Toast. And Culinary Content Network member Patricia Stagich's Huevos Rancheros are definitely worth checking out for anyone looking for a South-of-the-border dish. But, this week's winning prize goes to Tyler Sullivan, for her Eggs in Purgatory Recipe, which will send you straight to heaven.

All of the recipes featured here can be made at home for about $20 or less, excluding the cost of small amounts of basic ingredients such as butter, oil, flour, sugar, salt, pepper, and other dried herbs and spices. So if you're looking for an economical way to have dinner, breakfast for dinner is a timeless option.

Easy Vegan Dinner Recipes You'll Fall In Love With

Environmentalists have been urging us to eat less meat for years now, since it’s clear that cutting back on meat consumption is crucial to fighting climate change. And as the coronavirus pandemic brings about meat shortages, it seems like an especially wise time to be a vegetarian.

But many people are taking things one step further and making vegan recipes during the pandemic, cutting out all animal-based foods like eggs and milk, which have been tough to find in grocery stores lately. As we try to make do with available ingredients and also boost our health at a time when self-care is paramount, adopting a vegan diet (or at the very least, eating a few vegan meals every week) is a reasonable option.

But if you’re not used to eating vegan, prepare for your grocery list to look a whole lot different. Forget staples like butter and eggs, because you’ll be replacing them with cashews, healthy oils and specialty vegan substitutes.

Vegan recipes are like all the others ― there are lots of amazing ones, but lots of stinkers, too. We’ve rounded up some of our favorites to take the guesswork out of it. Just make sure you read the ingredients carefully before making your grocery list to ensure you have everything you need on hand. Many foods you think may be vegan actually aren’t, so it’s important to stick to the recipe.
