Breakfast for dinner is probably one of my most favourite ways to make dinner in a hurry. What’s faster than frying some eggs, bacon or sausages and whipping up some delicious waffles in less than 10 minutes? I kid you not, these savoury waffles take even the most amateur of cooks less than 20 minutes to make, and that’s if you are having a tough time concentrating on the task at hand.

So the next time you are in a rush to make dinner, say, because of an after school event/sport for your kids? Or even just because you don’t want to pull out all the stops for a weeknight dinner. Or maybe even because it’s freakin’ CHEAP to make breakfast for dinner (!) and you won’t be sorry you chose these savoury waffles as your first foray into this delicious underworld of meal crossovers. Next thing you know, you’ll be brunching….oooooo, fancy.
