Biscuits and sausage gravy with home fries for dinner. Wife made homemade sausage gravy; I did the homefries w/onions, the biscuits came out of the freezer. She's from Tennessee and does great homemade biscuits, when she just does not feel like making them the frozen ones will do.

    Love breakfast for dinner. My mom use to make it for us at least once a month. Yes, homemade biscuits are the best, but now there are pretty good frozen ones at the grocery stores. Sister Schubert's has one called "Angel Biscuits" and are littler than a regular biscuit and are wonderful with butter and pear preserves.

      I love biscuits and gravy for dinner. I make my gravy with bacon (if you've never tried it give it a whirl), lots of it crispy on the side, with hash browns and eggs and hot sauce. The after-breakfast carbo-lethargy doesn't matter as much in the evening, either. ;)

        That gives me a great idea, a side of bacon, thanks.

          Spouse & I also had breakfast for dinner last night. We kept it simple with pan fried county link sausage, eggs over easy cooked in the sausage grease, and a BIG pot of cheese grits. Nothing better.

            I don't even like breakfast for breakfast! Give me lunch for breakfast or dinner.....too many years of cooking Sunday brunch for 1800 people. Too many eggs. Pushed me over the edge, unfortunately.

              So I guess you are not with the "cold pizza" for breakfast bunch?

                Hell not to disagree with you but in the canoe club we use to cook that much and more every morning 1800 nothing to it. It's all in the prep, prepd right it's a very easy meal. Chow Jim

                    I like breakfast, but I also like lunch/dinner for breakfast. Many mornings I'll have hot dogs, bologna, tuna salad, etc, with a dill pickle and a coke at 5:00am. This morning it was a BLT.

                      It's always funny to me how there are "breakfast", "lunch" and "dinner" foods. Food is food, and if you want to eat a burger and fries at seven in the morning or an omelet at seven at night more power to you.

                      I had hot dogs for breakfast this morning myself.

                        Thats like asking how long is a piece of string. You need enough to get you the right amount of grease to make a proper roux that will generate the quantity of gravy you require.

                        Personally, I do occasionally make Bacon gravy but its not IMO as flavorful as sausage gravy. Now, mixing them both is good.

                          I really enjoy an Omlett with a salad at night for a late dinner. Total prep time start to finish 10min. Chow Jim

                            It would not take so long if you used a Ziplock.

                              Okay, I was a little leery of posting.

                              First of all, I was reading some past topics that I thought were cool, then something bad happened, that included one or more posts being deleted {the cheap breakfast topic in particular}. I didn't post there 'cause I didn't want to dredge up "bad thoughts". I'm still pretty new here.

                              On this topic, I agree that breakfast, lunch and dinner can consist of any foodstuffs. I need sustainence in the morning to get me going. That can be a quick sandwich, or whatever's on hand,and depending on my time constraints, it can be a larger meal. And an omelet for dinner is always great!!

                              This brought me to my next dilemma. I did a search when I realized the "Ziploc" comment sounded 'sarcastic' {?}, because this was in my local paper yesterday:

                              WE TRIED IT

                              I was intrigued by a recipe I got in my inbox. It's the kind of gee-whiz easy trick that tends to circulate. The idea behind a zip-lock omelet is that you can customize and make a lot of different omelets and have them ready all at the same time. You write everyone's name on zip-lock bags, break two eggs into each, squish and knead. Then each person adds ham, cheese, peppers, etc., to their bag. They squeeze the air out of the bag, then put it with the others in a pot of fully boiling water. Cook exactly 14 minutes. Remove from the water, cut the bag, and slide the omelets onto plates.

                              You can make up to six omelets at a time; I made three. I don't think I'll make them again. The texture was rather spongy, sort of like microwaved eggs, or as my college-age daughter said, "like the scrambled eggs in the dining hall." They didn't really look like an omelet, either, and you have to sacrifice a lot of zipper bags.

                              Perhaps the omelets would be better with more stuff than I put in the bag - and, surely, some butter in the bag would be helpful. Polly Campbell



                              My search here didn't bring up much, but one post that included something about the dreaded "trolling".

                              I personally think this way of cooking omelets sounds icky.

                              Hoping I didn't offend anyone,

                                I love combining breakfast with lunch/dinner rather than a complete switch. At Norm's Diner In Groton, CT you can get breakfast at any time of day. My favorite thing to get there when I stop in for lunch is the 10 oz bacon cheeseburger with onion rings and a short stack of pancakes. A slice of their fresh cherry pie is a great way to finish it off.

                                        Biscuits and gravy or hash browns smothered & covered are two of my favorite foods to eat any time of the day.

                                          My sainted mother always has leftover salad for breakfast. I have tried to tell her how wrong that is for so many reasons but she won't listen (she's 82 and thinks she knows everything). I, on the other hand, know that poached eggs on a sausage patty on a buttermilk biscuit smothered in sausage gravy with a side of homefries with onions, is the "go anywhere, anytime of day" kind of meal. My wife asked me to make sure everyone knew that my opinion was my own and not necessarily that of the management of this station. Fred

                                            My experience as I grow grayer is that categories become more meaningless. I tend to eat what I want when I want. I don't think I am alone in this. As the old saying goes, we get old too soon and smart too late

                                              She's 82, and your mom, therefore, SHE KNOWS IT ALL!!! Never question the all knowing mother!!

                                                my breakfast? a polish dog with bbq sauce and cheez whiz... hey, I had a fresh plum later on to make up for it! As for biscuits, I used to make mine from scratch, until I discovered Pillsbury frozen biscuits..I'm never going back, those things are awesome!
