This week on The Shiksa in the Kitchen, I’ll be focusing on one of my very favorite food subjects…


Meaning Breakfast for Dinner, of course.  :)

My family loves having breakfast for dinner. We do it a couple of times a month because it’s fun, easy, and lighter than a big heavy dinner meal. I thought it would be fun to share some of my favorite brinner recipes before we head into our Passover holiday planning. I’ll be sharing some brand new brinner recipes, as well as favorite dishes from the archives.

    I love to have a western omelet for dinner – it’s quick, easy and delicious!

  4. Bridget says:

    Love to make omeletts for brinner. We love breakfast for dinner and make it all the time. Who has time to make breakfast at breakfast?

  5. Erin says:

    Scrambled eggs make an easy last minute meal

  10. Barbara Young says:

    Nothing beats a good ol’ English fry-up. Scrambled eggs, bacon (naughty me), sausage (veggie in my case – can’t stand gristle), fried tomatoes, whole-wheat toast with butter. All of it cooked in the bacon fat! A cardiologist’s nightmare, but so, so good! Once a month won’t hurt. ;-)

  11. Samantha says:

    Wow. I LOVE breakfast for dinner (love the name Brinner too. Because of my busy schedule I often have Linner (lunch for dinner)). I really can’t pick exactly which breakfast item I most love BUT I’m going to go with Shakshuka! I love ordering this at Israeli restaurants (never for actual breakfast) AND I’m delighted that I now have the recipe via this website (I’m planning on eating this for brinner sometime this week)!!

  12. Lisa Capuano says:

    CREPES! I love sweet or savory crepes! Breakfast, lunch or dinner!

  13. Tanya says:

    I was actually craving French Toast for dinner today. I didn’t get to eat it but might have to make me some in the morning at least. yum!

  14. Amanda says:

    I’m living in Norway at the moment, and pancakes are considered dinner food! They make crepes, which can be stuffed with sweet or savory ingredients.

  15. Karen Rubin says:

    My go to is the Big Blintz. Easier than making blintzes, although I love to make them when I have time. Always a hit when served to guests.

  16. Jean von B says:

    My family always loved home made Egg McMuffins, pancakes, and sausage.

  17. brenda says:

    I love French toast for brinner, but cheese blintzes are great too!

  18. cynthia says:

    Pancakes and sausage. But it would be waffles if I had a cool waffle iron, lol.

  30. Ambrosia Doty says:

    We really like a breakfast casserole with hamburger and bacon in it. It’s really, really yummy! Goes nice with a fun fruit salad and glass of coffee for an after dinner treat ; )

  31. Rachel Brodsky says:

    My children adore breakfast for dinner….we have it on the calendar at least twice a month. I think the favorite is pancakes and turkey sausage. My youngest adores waffles, so if we won the waffle iron she would be over the moon!

    Thanks for your blog Tori! I am so glad I went through the recipes, because I found some new recipes to try for Passover this year! I am sure they will be wonderful!!

    Also eggs any way with fresh veggies. ummm good

  37. Denise says:

    Lox, cream cheese, a slice of red onion and tomato, on a poppy seed bagel!!!

  38. Victoria says:

    Our favorite ‘Brinner’ meal is scrambled eggs, potatoes, and whatever fresh veggie that come out of the garden.

    I love making my dad’s french toast! We love brenner too! But we call it B2!


  42. Ann says:

    What a fun giveaway! I LOVE brinner! I make something called “ugly eggs”. It basically is breakfast with eggs cracked over them and scrambled into an ugly, delicious mess!

  43. Margaret Teyema says:

    I shared the link on facebook!

  44. Avery says:

    Crepes. While they are more work than just pancakes, they have great potential to fill every desire you could want in a brinner. They can be uber-sweet or remarkably savory and still be a breakfast dish. They can be simple or complex and as light or heavy as you want. But most importantly, they can satisfy anyone’s brinner cravings and then be perfect for dessert (they even work well with aperitifs).

  45. Valerie says:

    I love breakfast! I’m a big fan of eggs, bacon and pancakes. Growing up, it was chorizo and eggs.

  46. Katie says:

    My mom always made the best pancake puff, which was great for breakfast or dinner. Always a treat :)

  47. Kim Bee says:

    Tori this is exciting. I am so tired I can’t see straight though, is it open to us Cancuks? I’d quite likely so a banana nutella waffle if I had this.

  48. Stefanie says:

    I love omelettes and fried potatoes for BRINNER!
