  1. My favorite brinner would be buttermilk pancakes, sausages, and hashbrowns with cheese and onions. Simple comfort food at it’s best.

  2. I love a cheese omelet with a side of bacon, but I remember my mom having a waffle iron and making waffles when I was really young – SO good!

  3. I love love love pancakes for brinner!! I read Pancakes Pancakes!! By Eric Carle to my son before making brinner & then after :)

  4. Waffles are not just a breakfast food. You can make them for dinner also. You have to be creative and love waffles as my family does.

  5. Our favorite brinner dish? waffles — of course!! With eight children, you’d better believe we had waffles a lot! Actually, I inherited my mother’s WWII era BHG cookbook, and the recipe for cornflake waffles clearly states that waffles make a great and economical supper — that’s what we called it in the old days. I also inherited her Sunbeam waffle baker, and you can imagine that it is on its last legs (I’m 60 and mom is baking waffles in heaven). Sure would love a new one, so I am sharing!

  6. MY Favorite “brinner”: Vegetable and potato frittata topped with parmesan cheese.
    Perfect with a dry Riesling! :-)

    My KIDS favorite brinner: pumpkin waffles with extra butter and syrup.

  7. Favorite brinner food is matzo brei, bit waffles would be good too. Will share this great idea on Facebook too, Tori.

  8. My fav brinner would be eggs, hashbrowns, bacon or sausage, grits & toast with jelly πŸ˜‰ Of course if I had this beauty of a waffle maker, I would have yummy waffles with bacon or sausage :) YUM~

    I shared on facebook :)

  9. I love breakfast any time of day. Red Velvet Waffles, crispy bacon, fresh orange juice with coffee fills the bill.

  10. Our fave brinner is fried chicken and waffles! The kids love this dish and think wrapping up the fried chicken breasts in the waffles is fun.

  11. Just what we had tonight: waffles with choice of add-ins before closing the lid: bananas and walnuts or shards of turkey ham and swiss.

  13. I love brinner! Omelets (bacon and cheddar, ham and swiss, brocolli and cheddar) with home fries. Quiche of all kinds with fruit. French toast with fruit. Also fried egg sandwhiches with cheese. I do brinner about 2 X/month depending on my groceries!

  14. an omelette with cheddar cheese inside and topped with onions, tomatoes and avocado and pancakes if I’m feeling really inspired. Or left over breakfast casserole.

  15. Our favorite brinner is my homemade spinach, mushroom, onion and emmenthaler quiche wrapped in a flaky crust.

  16. my family loves breakfast for dinner. Love to make unique waffles and pancakes all the time playing with ingredients I have in the kitchen cabinets or fridge. Anything from tropical mango and coconut to mixtures with corm meal and cranberries…my family will then give me a thumbs up to let me know if a new recipe is a family keeper..

  17. I love brinner! It was always a special treat when Mom made brinner – eggs, fried corn mush, sliced tomatoes – yummmmm!

  18. Would LOVE to win this! My favorite ‘brinner’ would probably be something with eggs.. Usually eggs with tomato and baby spinach, and lots and lots of freshly ground black pepper. :) My husband and I also love the traditional ‘Turkish breakfast’ of boiled eggs, sliced tomatoes, cucumbers, white (feta-ish) cheese, bread, tea, etc.

    Shared on my FB wall, too! <3

  19. Any kind of waffle sandwich, but I guess an “official” brinner would be an egg and cheese waffle sandwich. YUMMY!

  20. We usually do eggs, bacon, and cinnamon rolls or french toast. Sometimes pancakes or biscuits. We would love to do waffles but we need a waffle iron!

  21. For dinner I really enjoy and omelet with tomatoes, onions, and feta cheese, although I must say a waffle with strawberries makes a fantastic dessert.

  22. Our favorite is homemade corned beef hash, homefries and ‘dippy’ (over easy) eggs. Takes a bit of pre-planning to prep the corned beef but it’s so worth it! I also make mashed potato waffles with chili on top.
