Growing up, my dad prepared Indian eggs with beans and toast every weekend. Hailing from England, he brought his version of the English breakfast to our table and it was every bit as filling as it was delicious. Simple and sweet, this meal was an easy favorite.
As an adult, my own go-to weekend breakfast features homemade pancakes. Still, my favorite childhood breakfast stays in heavy rotation, just in a different way: breakfast for dinner.
For the nights when you want to throw in the towel and pour a bowl of cereal, this variation on the traditional English breakfast is the perfect rescue. The meal hits the sweet tooth’s spot while, unlike cereal, still offers good sources of fat, protein, and carbs. Basically, it’s a dinner win!
What you need:
- Eggs, prepared however you’d like
- Toast with optional peanut butter and jam
- Baked beans (I use vegetarian maple beans)
- Sliced avocado, tomato, carrots, or bell pepper
I hope this helps you in the endless quest of finding something to make for dinner!
