Breakfast, Lunch or Dinner?

Recently, Food Network asked Facebook fans: “Breakfast, lunch or dinner? Which is your favorite, and which could you go without?” Growing up, you’re always told three meals a day are a necessity, but many of you (more than 1,300 to be exact) think that’s not the case. Lots of people would throwaway lunch, while breakfast was definitely the most hotly contested issue.

Many said no to breakfast, but even more of you said you’d devour breakfast any time of day.

Our solution? Breakfast for dinner. You’ll get the best of both worlds when you have a hearty meal at dinnertime that's made of your favorite morning dishes.

Fifteen minutes is all you need to make Food Network Magazine’s Hash-Brown Eggs. Onion and potato make the hash base, while some grated cheddar and two baked eggs make this dish gooey-good.

Make sure to bring your appetite when you try Sunny’s Big Ole Tex-Mex Burrito Omelet. The name says it all: It's a mix of beans, eggs, lots of cheese and Mexican chorizo, topped with tomatillo sauce and fresh tomato.

Sandra’s Breakfast Pizza is perfect grilled outdoors or baked in the oven. Use pre-made pizza crust and dinner is done in 20 minutes.

Make an extra-manly meal when you try the Neelys' Grilled Steak and Eggs With Beer and Molasses (pictured above). A 1/2 inch thick strip steak and four grilled eggs will easily fill up even the hungriest of bellies.

No brinner (breakfast and dinner, get it?) list would be complete without pancakes and waffles. Try Aida’s Cakey Buttermilk Pancakes for a sweet treat with blueberry maple syrup, or make Rachael’s Savory Sour Cream and Chive Waffles With Sausage and Ligonberry Syrup for a dish even the kids can get in on.
