Having breakfast for dinner is a family favorite in our house. I include it on our menu at least twice a month. Recently I decided to give some Homemade McGriddles a try. They quickly became a favorite. These little McGriddle type sandwiches are very versatile, I served them for dinner one night along with breakfast stew and some fruit, and also made them a couple times for Sunday morning breakfast. Be sure to make extras too, they keep well and make a quick breakfast when you are in a hurry.
- Make a batch of silver dollar (small) pancakes, I use this recipe
- Slice and cook sausage patties or cook some bacon in the oven like Jen does (this works great, I’ve been cooking bacon this way ever since her post)
- Scramble 1 egg at a time in a bowl, then fry, trying to keep the eggs from spreading (I need to get one of those handy cookie cutter type egg holders)
- Assemble pancake, egg, sausage or bacon, add a slice of cheese and top with another pancake
I’m glad my family enjoys having breakfast type food for dinner, it’s not only delicious, but it’s a frugal meal too, depending on how much meat you serve. I keep the cost of the meal around $5, but sometimes a little higher if we add bacon.
Additional notes: I forgot to add that sometimes I add syrup to the pancakes while they are cooking (Thanks Connie for reminding me). And, the breakfast stew link takes you to the breakfast tacos recipe, I use the same recipe, I just don’t put the mixture in the tortilla shells.
