Morning favorites get jazzed up and dressed for dinner.
Cooking traditional morning-time meals for dinner feels decadent. You’re daring to be different. It's 8pm and you could cobble together an uninspiring chilli con carne, like you do most Wednesdays. Or you could make what you really want—like you did before conformity came along with its sensible shoes and traditional meal times. While you’re there, why not why not jazz it up a little? You’re a rule breaker, after all.
In Eggs Just The Way You Like Them, you’ll find nostalgic classics like Betty Grable Eggs (with a twist of course), but what you didn’t expect was a truly outrageous indulgence like New Orleans Benedict, which has to be tried to be believed. Try the super-trendy Fried Game Hen and Cornmeal Waffles or if you’re a sweet with savoury fan, why not break out the Monte Cristo from Hot Sandwiches & Savoury Waffles. Discover Pulled Pork Hash and Hash Browns 3 Ways from Skillet Suppers, while Brinner in a Bowl will take you on a journey from east and west, from a spicy Nasi Goreng to a Caribbean Trini Saltfish Buljol. Tuck in to popular sweet and savoury pancake recipes in From the Griddle with Chicks in Blankets and Blueberry Cotton Candy Pancakes.
Why not whip up a sensational bake from The Pastry Basket, such as Bacon-butterscotch Cinnamon Rolls and Raspberry Coffee Cake. Last but not least, get on board with a Brunch Punch, an Espresso Martini or Coffee Granita from Cocktails, Coffees, & other Hot Beverages. You’re in for a treat.
