This week on The Shiksa in the Kitchen, I’ll be focusing on one of my very favorite food subjects…


Meaning Breakfast for Dinner, of course.  :)

My family loves having breakfast for dinner. We do it a couple of times a month because it’s fun, easy, and lighter than a big heavy dinner meal. I thought it would be fun to share some of my favorite brinner recipes before we head into our Passover holiday planning. I’ll be sharing some brand new brinner recipes, as well as favorite dishes from the archives.

  1. this one is hard i have two favorites. egg in the bread (egg in basket, toad in the hole) what ever you prefer to call it with hashbrowns and bacon. My other favorite it taylor ham egg and cheese sandwich on a kaiser roll.

  2. Lox, eggs, onions all scrambled up and served to my by my sweetie. He also makes a mean jelly omlete during Pesach.

  3. My favorite “brinner” meal is eggs. Eggs in omelettes, quiches, egg salad…. Yummy, easy and a good source of protein!

  4. Pancakes – whole wheat sourdough, usually, often with fried eggs or maple syrup, but once in a while with gravy if we have some leftover from a previous meal.

  5. My family loves big breakfasts, but the DH is not a fan of Brinner…so when he has a game or is on a business trip the kids and I take serious advantage of it…Scrambled cheesy eggs, bacon, grits, and pancakes n syrup for dessert (waffles would be great here too) and homemade fluffy golden southern style buttermilk biscuits.

  6. My brinner guests love pancakes! I do a “bar” with different sauces & add-ins so everyone gets just what they’re in the mood for that night!

  7. We love French toast fro brinner because it can be savory (dipped in over easy eggs!) or sweet (powdered sugar and strawberries!).

  8. Favorite brinner meal (where I pretend that we aren’t actually eating breakfast for dinner) is to scramble eggs with chives and serve them with steamed artichokes and a homemade bread.

  9. My favorite brinner dish would have be be blueberry pancakes with lots of butter and maple syrup, with a side of scrambled eggs and maybe even some sausage! But I love all breakfast food so much it’s hard to choose :)

  10. We just had Brinner last night! Bagels, lox and cream cheese, and scrambled eggs. Sometimes we saute onions and mushrooms or salami and put in the eggs… yum! But if I had one of these puppies, it would take Brinner to a whole new level!

  11. My absolute favorite brinner is tortillas and eggs, and it couldn’t be simpler to make.

    Just put a skillet over medium or medium-high heat with a fairly liberal coating of oil, sweat some chopped onions, tear some tortillas and throw them into the skillet to fry, and, once they seem crisp, crack a few eggs into the mix. This is great with chorizo, too, and of course you have to have salsa to finish it off at the table!

  12. Matzo Brei or pancakes are our favorite Brinner!
    Sometimes salami cooked in scrambled eggs (My Jewish mother used to serve with vegetarian baked beans). mmm

  13. I would say homemade quiche with spinach, onion, swiss, etc. and a smoothie although waffles are a close second smothered in fruit and whipped cream.
