What's For Supper... Er, Breakfast?

Do you do this too? Breakfast food for supper can really stretch creative menu planning, not to mention the budget. When my hubby is away on business, and it's just us girls home for supper, I've been known to crack an egg or two and enjoy a big, hearty breakfast. Sometimes it's just a sausage and egg biscuit (I skip the guilt by eating Morning Star veggie patties), or maybe bacon and eggs with all the trimmings (when I'm feeling indulgent), or my girl's favorite - French toast. (My tried-and-true-stand by of all breakfast foods.) The trick to really good French toast is the bread (Brioche is a good choice), and then the wash - 1 egg, for every two pieces of bread, mixed with a splash of milk, a sprinkle of cinnamon, and a drop of vanilla. This photo, from the talented Jennifer Causey over at Simply Breakfast, makes me miss summer berries. And of course you'll need to warm up some real maple syrup too.

Looks delicious. We occasionally have breakfast for dinner too but mine is Bisquick instant pancake mix with chocolate chips.
