petit déjeuner

June 3, 2009

You know what’s incredibly delicious? Breakfast for dinner. This just occurred to me, literally out of nowhere.

Maybe it’s the kid in me that delights in the backwardness of eating pancakes at 6:00pm; maybe after a tough day at work, a hearty breakfast is the perfect energizer. Who knows?

Now to convince my mom that scrapping her carefully planned and balanced meal in favour of a plateful of bacon is a good idea…


If you’re craving breakfast for dinner like I am, try some of the recipes after the jump!




French Toast

6 thick slices sourdough bread
2 eggs
2/3 cup milk
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Beat together egg, milk, spices and vanilla.
Heat a lightly oiled griddle of skillet over medium-high flame.
Dunk each slice of bread in egg mixture, soaking both sides. Place in pan, and cook on both sides until golden. Serve hot.


Blueberry Pancakes

2 eggs, separated
1 1/2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
2 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
3 tablespoons sugar
3/4 teasooon salt
1 cup milk
3 tablespoons butter, melted
1 cup fresh or frozen thawed blueberries, rinsed
In a small bowl, beat egg whites until stiff; set aside.
In a separate bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, sugar and salt. Beat egg yolks in a medium mixing bowl; add milk and melted butter. Stir egg mixture into dry ingredients; mix until batter is smooth and stir in blueberries. Fold in beaten egg whites. Bake on hot greased griddle.


I’m really not an egg person (I only like them in french toast, actually, otherwise I abhor them), but you can check out for the Top 20 Best Omelet recipes!

Bon appetite!

    I agree. Breakfast for dinner = awesome. The best part about driving to Florida/being in the States for Christmas was that we got to eat at Denny’s/Ihop/all those all day breakfast diner places.
