This post is all about why I serve breakfast for dinner once a week! Growing up, we did not do a lot of family breakfasts. I grew up in a BIG family with lots of siblings, so cereal, toast, waffles, and sometimes other things were served up, but more often than not, it was cereal. That was okay because I did not eat breakfast and still don’t.
But, my family does eat breakfast and they absolutely love it. So, that is why I serve breakfast for dinner once a week. It works for us. It also opens up more fun options to put on the family dinner table. Because let’s face it, breakfast is just more fun!

Putting dinner on the table every night can be stressful and time-consuming, so one way to ease this challenge is to serve up breakfast for dinner once a week! Krusteaz, the maker of premium pancake and waffle mixes, helps our family make easy and fun breakfast foods for dinner.
Once a week I serve breakfast for dinner and I let my kids pick what they want to make. It is a family ordeal and I get the kids involved in creating our breakfast for dinner meal. Sometimes we opt for waffles, other times it is pancakes. Last night it was french toast. The possibilities and options are endless.
After we choose what we want (waffles, french toast, pancakes, etc), we then prepare the rest of the menu. Bacon is ALWAYS on the menu just because we love bacon (who doesn’t???). Sometimes we will throw in sausage too. Then I either make scrambled eggs with the works inside or just a regular ‘pokey’ egg as we call them (fried eggs).
I will also make up my favorite dish, which is a potato fry dish. I add onions, green peppers, salt, pepper, etc to create a yummy potato dish that my whole family eats up in no time! Yum!
I also let my kids choose what they want to drink, chocolate milk, milk, orange juice, or almond milk. My family loves the variety of breakfast for dinner options we have.
We sit around our table and talk about our day and just enjoy our meal together. Ahhh, just like old times when I was younger! We always sat around the dinner table at dinner and I love doing that with my little family.
Since February is National Breakfast Month, Krusteaz sent me a yummy package filled with their delicious waffle and pancake mixes to help me create a yummy breakfast meal for dinner!
We had a lot of fun (like we always do!) creating a fun, family meal! This is why I Serve Breakfast For Dinner Once A Week!
