Breakfast For Supper- Kind Of A Midwest Thing...




Occasionally, we like having traditional breakfast food for supper. I remember this from when I was growing up. It might be pancakes and sausage links, or scrambled eggs with toast and bacon, or waffles! Incidentally, I never had an omelette until I was in my teens- neither Mom or Dad knew how to make one! I saw it on a menu and said "That's for me!"
I don't like to eat anything first off in the morning, but enjoy breakfast food immensely- so this works great about once a month. Tonight, I made a 4 egg cheese and mushroom omelette, split in half, with homemade strawberry jam on 9 grain toast. It really was enough, and hit the spot! This whole thing took 12 minutes from start to finish! Sometimes you just don't want to cook for an hour or two before finally eating- this is a great way have a quick, tasty supper!

Craig and I go through "omelet phases". It usually happens in the winter. And I am like you...not much into eating first thing in the morning, but absolutely love breakfast as a meal.

My mom would make breakfast for dinner every so often too. It felt like a treat.

Jen said...

Quick, tasty supper is my thing for sure!

I LOVE breakfast anyplace, anytime it's my favorite meal. I'd almost be afraid if you and my dad ever got together to whip us ladies up some breakfast!! You'd have to carry me away from the table...

I love cheese omelette but my favourite at the moment is omelette with snippets of smoked salmon cooked in it! Delish.

Thats why many restaurants declare on the top of the menu..
"Breakfast Served Anytime"!
We did the same thing in our house growing up.
Jeez..are you sure we are NOT long lost brothers?
Have a great week-end Buff....G

Breakfast is my favorite meal, no matter what time of day it is served! And omelettes? Breaskfast of champions ... especially when served for supper. I think I know what I'm doing for dinner tonight!

G-man- Well my Dad did sell Buicks for 38yrs., and he had been to Flint before, that's for sure... I think this breakfast for supper thing was a heritage from the Great Depression- eggs and pancakes were cheap!
dana- The only time I don't order an omelette out for breakfast, is when Eggs Benedict are on the menu...

I L.O.V.E. breakfast for supper... But it's been a long time since we have done it.

Bina said...

I'm sitting here freaking starving to death and you have to go and show me THAT!!!! AH! I'll be making me one in the morning, with some crispy bacon, and biscuits, and gravy. Hmmmmmmmmmm

buffalodickdy said...

Sherry- Sometimes, you go back to what works... Bet it would hit the spot!
