What do you call breakfast eaten at dinner time? Breakfast eaten at lunch is called brunch, so maybe it’s a brinner? Some call it Bupper, others named it Dreakfast or Dinfast, but I guess I will name it Breakfast Anytime! To me, breakfast is always fun and full of choices. When I grew up, my parents would wake us up at 8 am on Sundays, and we would have our breakfast in a restaurant. It was way too early for us kids, but as most restaurants were open as early as 7 am (or even 6 am) in the morning to serve breakfasts, we did not have much excuses not to go. So we would woke up in a grouchy mood, dragged ourselves out of the bed and got ready to go. Seeing how the kids were behaving like zombies for lack of sleep, my parents always took us to delicious breakfast places to make us excited in exchange for waking up early on Sunday morning. From noodle parlors to pancake houses and dim sums, we’ve tried almost everything and I’ve been loving breakfast since then.
Too bad, now Frederick and I rarely enjoy that breakfast moment. It feels like a torture to get up early on weekends for both of us, as we are so busy during weekdays. I often let him sleep a little bit more on weekends. In that way I can enjoy my ‘me’ time preparing a Sunday breakfast or just being busy in the kitchen. Thankfully, I can continue my love for breakfast, especially now as people rave about having breakfast for dinner. I’m totally digging into it! This waffle recipe that I’m about to share is a complete set of breakfast items – egg, bacon, cheese and waffles – mix it altogether on a plate and voila! Breakfast can now be served as dinner… and I’m just curious – if you have breakfast for dinner, can we still call it ‘breakfast’?
