Breakfast Sandwiches for Dinner

breakfast sandwiches for dinner

Every once in a while, instead of spending an hour on prep and cooking, this momma goes easy, and we have breakfast for dinner. Last night, we had Breakfast Sandwiches for Dinner. By warming up sausage patties, cooking eggs in a very unconventional way and toasting bagels, dinner was fun and hands-on for the kids.

Bagels or Croissant, which is best?

Everything bagel thins turned out fantastic with this Breakfast Sandwiches for Dinner idea. However, the Croissant idea fell very short. Literally. When we tried to cut them to use them as a sandwich, they were just too small. Next time, we may shape the croissant differently, possibly into a square shape and not the typical shape.

How I cooked the eggs

Usually, we eat fried eggs. However, tonight I tried to cook the eggs all at once in the oven in a baking pan. By cooking the eggs in the oven, and not on the stove, eighteen eggs were cooked all together instead of in small batches.
One thing, to keep in mind if you do this with the eggs, is to poke or pop the yolks or they may explode in the oven. This is the same with potatoes in the oven, make sure you poke them before baking in the oven! No one likes a mess in their oven.

Our family loves to eat bagels. When I have time to make them, we typically have plain, cinnamon raisin, blueberry or everything flavored bagels to choose from. As we had just came back from a week at my parents on the lake, we were quite lacking in food and time to make homemade bagels. At ALDI, we found premade “bagel skinnys” that were great for making Breakfast Sandwiches for Dinner. Below is the recipe for Everything Bagels. Click the link to check it out!

I have not always had the skills to cook and bake from scratch. As a young wife, I bought every meal frozen or boxed and presented it to my husband with a flourish, believing myself a decadent cook. As our budget shrunk, and our family grew, I looked for ways to stretch our money to nourish our kids with the best for their hungry appetites. Hoping to find recipes and meals that they would love to eat. Through the last 5 years, I have learned so many cooking and baking lessons, and experienced many wins and failures. Come along with me on this journey as I share my recipes that work, how to make them on the cheap, and my tips and tricks to get my kids to eat homemade deliciousness! I will also share updates to our house that we have done in the last year since our move. With one income, we do most of the work ourselves and with amazing family and friends to help out, cutting costs but keeping style and money in the bank! I am a wife and mother of 3 boys and 1 princess. When I was a kid, I remember being asked what I wanted to be or do when I grew up. My response was, "a mom", and I am proud to grow up and be a mom to 4 amazing kids! Samuel is 11, Matthew is 8, Levi is 4, and Elliana is almost 2. We have been blessed to have kids who love to explore foods, to try new recipes, and enjoy helping us around the house. With 4 kids, you better believe they help clean! My husband Tyler and I have been married almost 13 years. We love our kids, we love outdoors, camping, canoeing, grilling, watching movies, and just hanging out making memories. A few years ago I gifted Tyler with his own "menu" book, where we write meals and foods we have loved to eat. Weekly our family decides what our meals will be and I make up a grocery list with what we need. It literally is my favorite chore! I love to shop, so shopping for food on a budget is my biggest win! Thank you for taking the time and visiting my site, Subscribe so you do not miss a post! Keep coming back to hear about new recipes, updates on our home, fun times with our kids, and how to make homemade deliciousness! ~Monica
