One-Pan Breakfast for Dinner — Meatless Monday

Related To:

Weekends are practically made for lazy, relaxed breakfasts, but once Monday strikes, there's little time to enjoy morning classics. To indulge in your favorite breakfasts like eggs, pancakes or waffles during the hectic week, however, all you have to do is ditch the idea that they can only be enjoyed in the morning. Try swapping out your usual dinner fare and introducing hearty breakfast and brunch staples to your suppertime routine; they're just as simple and quick to prepare as many traditional dinner dishes, but they're often a bit more decadent, so they will feel like a treat. Plus, your kids will enjoy the novelty that comes with having "morning" food at nighttime.

Food Network Kitchen's Baked Eggs with Farmhouse Cheddar and Potatoes is one such easy breakfast dish that's ideal for dinner, as it combines tried-and-true morning picks and is ready to eat in less than an hour. Made conveniently in a single pan, this recipe is simplest to make when you have all of your ingredients prepared and at the ready; that way you can move from one step to another in flash. Start by sauteing potatoes in fresh parsley and garlic, then create a few wells in the mixture into which you can crack eggs. After baking the eggs for a few minutes, top with a blanket of cheddar, then return to the oven to achieve a gooey, melty finish. Be sure to start the recipe in an ovenproof skillet, like a cast-iron one, since it will move from the stovetop to the oven.

Meatless Monday, an international movement, encourages people everywhere to cut meat one day a week for personal and planetary health. Browse more Meatless Monday recipes.
