We love having traditional breakfast foods for dinner for a couple of reasons. One, they’re usually pretty fast to prepare. Two, they always taste so comforting as we’re winding down our days. Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite breakfast recipes to use for dinner. We love these recipes because they contain veggies, are packed with protein, and also give you a good dose of fiber.
High Protein Vegan Breakfast Burrito: This is a flavorful, satisfying, protein-packed way to finish the day. The ingredients come together quickly and it’s also easy to make enough to pack for breakfast or lunch that next day too. We love Angela’s recipes on Oh She Glows.
Anytime Omelet: Omelets are a simple, fast, and delicious way to combine protein and veggies for dinner. We’d pair this one from California Avocados with a baked potato or sweet potato, a cup of quinoa or brown rice, or 2 slices of whole grain toast to make a completely balanced dinner.
Curried Sweet Potato Waffles with Coconut-Braised Kale & Poached Eggs: This recipe from Clean Eating had us drooling before we even tasted it! The flavors are interesting enough to serve to guests for dinner, but it’s surprisingly uncomplicated to make. We’d recommend eating two portions for a dinner-sized meal.
Chocolate-Peanut Butter Smoothie: Because of the secret ingredient in this smoothie, you also get a serving of veggies, along with protein, fiber, and healthy fats. We’d double the amount of peanut butter to 2 tablespoons when using this smoothie as a quick dinner.
Huevos Rancheros Verdes: This traditional breakfast recipe from Eating Well has all the makings of a great dinner, including protein and fiber-rich carbs. We’d double the amount of lettuce and add sliced tomato to boost the veggies a bit for your evening meal. To make it a hearty dinner, we also love topping it off with Bumble Bee® Solid White Albacore Tuna to truly transform this breakfast favorite.
Green Warrior Protein Smoothie: This smoothie is like a salad, all blended up. We’ll refer you to Angela’s description, which is much more appetizing, on Oh She Glows. You could even make this smoothie in the morning, keep it in the fridge, and have a super fast, veggie-packed dinner waiting on a late, busy night.
Hope you enjoy! And let us know in the comments what some of your favorite breakfast foods for dinner are.
