This week I tried something a little different with my middle child. She’s six years old and was always my best eater, but something happened in the past year and she’s turned out to be such a picky eater. This week, I let her call all the shots for dinner every day. We sat together on Sunday morning and looked through the supermarket circulars to get ideas for dinner. She was unsure at first if I would honor all her requests, so she asked me if I was going to absolutely make everything she asked for. I told her the only stipulations I had was that she couldn’t have ice cream or chocolate for dinner, but everything else was free game. The first thing on her list? Breakfast for dinner.
My kids don’t know this but breakfast for dinner is my ultimate weeknight dinner in a pinch. We always have a supply of eggs, milk, and Bays English Muffins on hand for other meals, so while they think breakfast for dinner is a treat and a novelty, it’s really the easiest dinner I can make during the week. They requested pancakes and scrambled eggs, and I was happy to oblige.
We don’t have ordinary scrambled eggs in this house. I’m pretty intent on adding veggies to just about every meal they have, so adding onions, garlic, zucchini, and fresh peppers was something everyone would be happy with. For good measure, I added sliced black olives to the mix, and placed a heaping spoonful of the veggie scrambled eggs onto a Bays English Muffin.
The kids gobbled it all up like it was the best thing they’ve ever eaten, and even commented that breakfast for dinner tastes so much better than breakfast for … breakfast!
Here’s a short video of how easy it is to make super easy and healthy breakfast for dinner veggie scrambled eggs:
