Breakfast for Dinner

breakfast If you want to save some money on your grocery bill, try this trick. It really does work!

Last night for dinner, I cooked up some chicken sausage and scrambled eggs with cheese. It was a filling meal containing lots of protein, and cost so much less to prepare than a traditional meal. And while it is true that the price of breakfast staples, such as eggs and flour have gone up, the reality is that is is still usually cheaper to eat breakfast than it is to eat dinner.

Just go into any restaurant, if you don’t believe me. Breakfast is always less expensive to purchase out. But to save, of course, prepare it at home.

Breakfast for dinner can be a lot of fun for the kids, although sometimes it takes some getting used to for the adults. If this is the case, you can sneak breakfast as dinner by preparing the typical breakfast ingredients a bit differently. Instead of omelets, for example, try making fritatta using leftover vegetables and pasta.

There are so many choices for breakfast. Anything flour-based is especially inexpensive. Pancakes, muffins or waffles will work, but so will biscuits with gravy. Or, make some homemade bagels. A quick on the go dinner could consist of fried egg sandwiches with cheese (add ham or sausage if desired). Cook them up, layer them between two halves of an english muffin or bagel or even bread, wrap them in aluminum foil to keep warm and off you go. This is much cheaper than stopping for fast food, and it doesn’t take much time to prepare.

The Duggar family, the famous family that has 18 kids have a popular recipe called Tater Tot Casserole. What is this other than breakfast food? It is a popular dish with large families because it can feed a lot of people for not much money.

So, the next time that you are stumped with what to make for dinner that is easy an inexpensive, consider having breakfast.
