At least it used to when I was a kid. I remember begging my Mom to make my favorite breakfast foods for dinner. Pancakes for supper.. Oh how that would make me smile and feel so naughty. Even as a kid it seemed like it was a huge taboo to eat a breakfast food for dinner. Most likely because it didn’t happen very often. The only time I remember eating breakfast for dinner was when my Dad worked an afternoon shift and then our dinner was generally cereal. That wasn’t very fun, or naughty. LOL!
My husband and I love food, enjoy cooking together and love to come up with our own “fun” food ideas. We are not ones to really eat a breakfast food after dark (for dinner). But, I found it a fun idea to whip up an old time favorite breakfast food my Dad used to make us kids but added a twist to the meal. I made my meal with I Can’t Believe it’s not Butter and also added a couple sides to accompany the main dish.
My favorite breakfast when I was a kid was what my folks called “Egg in the Nest”. Sounds complicated, but super fun and easy. And, this is a fun one to involve the kids with. You start with bread (any kind), and take a small dixie cup or some other small container that is no more than 2″ in diameter. Place the container or cup in the middle of the bread and push down to make a circle and remove that circle from the bread. Spread I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter one side of the bread and round middle piece you removed. Add I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter to a frying pan and let melt on medium heat. Once melted, place bread in pan with the side that you have the buttery spread on facing up. Brown the bread on one side, then flip. Once flipped, crack an egg into each hole. This is the Egg in the Nest. Fry until the egg is set up enough to flip, flip and cook to desired egg doneness.
I added some Venison steaks and homemade sweet potato hash browns to my meal as sides to my egg in the nests. This made for a perfect Breakfast After Dark meal. Hubby and I enjoyed it while watching a favorite show on tv.
I used I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter to prepare all my food. I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter! has 70% less saturated fat than butter, no hydrogenated oils and is made from a blend of vegetable oils and is gluten free.
