Breakfast , for dinner? Mon, 11/1/04 4:54 PM (permalink)
I like to have breakfast foods for dinner at times. Anyone else? Any favorite diners/restaurants that serve breakfast all day long?

      Hey, FC, that's over and above what's required of you for a reply. Thanks for the photos and I will look them up when I am in Richmond next time. Would you have an address, or at least a part of town Karen's is located in?

        Carl,

        Karen's Diner is at 2237 West Broad St., which is directly across the street from the main DMV complex.

        And, by the way, it's also just a short distance from McLeans Restaurant, mentioned on this site by Wanderingjew and i95 in the past as a very good breakfast spot as well.

          Do this frequently. Favorites are fried aigs cooked in bacon greese, grits and/or home fries, biscits' with white gravy and plenty o' pepper, and 'fer some strange reason lots of serrano pepper salsa (homemade; on the 'taters ;) 'Course, that keeps me runnin' at werk the next day, but I gess that's naturale.

            Frequently have breakfast for dinner. Can only manage to eat a little breakfast so when I do it for dinner I go all the way! Sausage or bacon, eggs, toasted muffin and fried potatoes!

            By the way Frank, that picture doesn't look a thing like me!! Not to mention I'm a bit further north in Baltimore.

              LOL, I only eat breakfast when we are eating out, or for dinner at home or in a restaurant!

                Karen W and LL:

                This little diner used to be a TODDLE HOUSE ! When I was a much younger type, it was a great place to grab some eats around midnight when you needed it.

                  Little Sandy's Truck Stops at Keysers Ridge Maryland and Bruceton Mills serves breakfast 24/7. Eat N Park on Patteson Drive in Morgantown WV, serves breakfast (except for the breakfast bar) 24/7. The Waterfront Restaraunt on Dunkard Avenue in Westover WV(suburb of Morgantown) serves 24/7. Those are ones that I can think of , off the top of my peapickin' haid.

                    I grew up having breakfast for dinner, because it was cost effective. A lot of carbohydrates, a little protein and a bunch of sugar. Didn't cost too much. I loved having pancakes and eggs for dinner. When my daughter was young, as a treat we would have homemade waffles and Burger Smokehouse Bacon (from California, MO) for dinner with 100% maple syrup. My daughter has continued this tradition in her own home. And omelettes are appropriate at any meal, as are scrambled eggs. In my city, restaurants that serve breakfast at any time are a dying breed.

                      I am lucky to live in an area where there are diners every mile or two, and a good one is no more than 5 miles away. Breakfast is available 24 hours a day at almost all. Sometimes a good dose of hash, homefries, and eggs are an essential!

                        I prefer to cook breakfast in the evening instead of in the morning. I have more time then. We all leave for work at different times so it is everyone eat their own thing in the morning. At night ( we have supper, not dinner), I like to make eggs, grits, bacon , sausage or ham, biscuits and brown gravy with cantelope in season.

                          Grew up having breakfast for supper. My dad worked nights all of my growing up years and he didn't like to eat a regular breakfast when he came home in the morning and then try to sleep. We often had pancakes, sausage, and eggs or homemade waffles, eggs, and bacon. Canadian bacon was a real treat as was creamed chipped beef and creamed eggs on toast.

                            I love breakfast for dinner and have perfected my own version of red flannel hash to go with my eggs. I also make big batches of garlic cheese grits - not too shabby for a New Yorker. I tend to go for savory, rather than sweet. BJ's sells some pretty nifty thick cut bacon under the Berkely Jenson name.

                              I've also seen this done the other way around: Dinner for breakfast. I remember my cousin eating cold Giordano's pizza from the night before for breakfast one morning. That kind of thing doesn't appeal to me. Recently, I found myself at Walker Bros. pancake restaurant for dinner (not my idea) and the thought of pancakes at 6 p.m. was quite unappetizing.

                              For some reason, I'm in the mood for breakfast foods when it's breakfast time and dinner foods at dinner time.

                                I can't stand breakfast at breakfast, much less for supper which is my most favorite meal! Bring on the duck, the foie gras, the sweetbreads, the steaks and potatoes. Or perhaps sushi and sashimi.....but no eggs or pancakes.

                                  I love having eggs, pnacakes, and sausage for dinner. Conversely, I'll eat all sorts of dinner foods for breakfast.

                                  24 hour diners are best for this.

                                    I just realized that I too like breakfast foods at night and I eat all different foods in the morning time. Yesterday morning, my daughter wanted me to try the cabbage rolls that she had cooked the night before and she heated me one up in the microwave. This past Sunday morning, I fried chicken and made gravy to go with it.

                                      yup.. we have breakfast for dinner.. but not as much as we used to.. my mom used to fix pancakes and sausage sometimes for me and my dad when i was growing up-- hmm those were good memories... also-- after my first husband passed away - i was left with a 5 yr old and a 1 yr old so we did breakfast for dinner a LOT.. they LOVED it.. especially my home made french toast sticks..... they don't get them too much anymore-- as schedules don't allow for it much but.. we sometimes have biscuits and gravy-- that's pretty yummy too....
                                      i see nothing wrong with it.. it's fun sometimes..........

                                        Not so much as I used to, although it's very comforting. I do know that whenever Bill & I go to my daughter's Back to School Night, we always go to our favorite diner, the White Horse Diner (located on the beautiful White Horse Pike in picturesque Berlin, New Jersey), and I always order a breakfast. It's usually around 9:15 PM by then.

                                          I'll stop at Kewpee's for a double cheeseburger at 7:00am on my way to work every so often. I enjoy having breakfast for dinner when the urge strikes, which is not as rare as a cheeseburger breakfast.

                                              Sometimes. Not often, but sometimes. Omelet, toast, bacon.

                                              When we were growing up, my mom used to cut up hot dogs and fry them, then mix in scrambled eggs. We used to demand that she make that.

                                                I still like to fry cup up weiners for breakfast. I then make a pan of gravy and bake some biscuits or toast. My husband and daughter thinks that this is a rather good breakfast.

                                                  Mosca, that reminds me of my mom's hot dog omelets. They were pretty good, too.

                                                  As for the original question, I like breakfast basically any time, except for what most of the world considers breakfast time, i.e., morning. ;)

                                                        Once a week, generally, it's breakfast for dinner. Especially when I don't feel inspired to create something else. It's usually ham & cheese omelets or french toast with bacon. It never fails to please.

                                                          Breakfast anytime? Thanks. I'll have French Toast during the Rennaissance. (Thank you Steven Wright)

                                                          Last night we were set to eat leftovers of a hash hubby made with sausage, baked beans, shredded potatoes, and mushrooms. I said, "Hey! Wouldn't this be great with a side of fried eggs?" It was amazing!

                                                            I like breakfast foods just about anytime. I like to make egg sandwiches in the evening (no catsup, just mayo) pancakes; sometimes just goitta have breakfast twice a day.
