An article in the Washington Post shows some recipes for foods usually eaten at breakfast time that can also work for evening meals. I'm interested in the curry waffle thing myself.

Here's the link for the whole article

Here's the link for just the recipes

I wish WAPO had a way to put their articles into one page, and wish they didn't double space their recipes (whine).

a few years back nabisco had a recipe contest featuring shredded wheat

i don't know who won, but i remember thinking, why does it have to breakfast food, it's like little nests of grains, why couldn't you soften up with a little broth, then serve it as a bed for medallions of pork or veal in a brandy raisi sauce, or a curry of some kind

I think I mentioned on another thread that my mother often would make waffles and sausages for Sunday night supper. I love breakfast foods. I rarely have time in the morning to make them, so why not have them for supper?

My mother would sometimes fix waffles and syrup for supper when I was a child.

Pancakes for supper is great!

Also, for my daughter sometimes she will have an egg and cheese sandwich for supper.

I happen to be very fond, too fond, of biscuits and gravy... I'd be happy with those for dinner. Not a well-balanced meal, but then one would grow to be well round.

Hey, ossobucco, it's good to see that you, ehbeth, Swimpy and littlek are still posting! It's like coming home for the holidays and reconnecting with family and friends!!! I really miss being able to sit and post regularly....there just isn't enough time in the day!!!.....Now, getting on with the comments about breakfast.....I developed a breakfast sandwich in my cafe that we lovingly call "The Fear Factor"! People are afraid to try it at first, but once they face their fear they come back and order it again and again! I butter 2 pieces of cinnamon-maple bread (or English muffins if you prefer) and throw them on the grill (or in a frying pan) until they are a buttery golden brown. While the pieces are happily grilling, I take 2 pieces of pepperjack cheese and put 1 slice on each piece of bread. The cheese begins to slowly melt and just before it does, I spread peanut butter (not too thickly) on each slice. I then take a cooked sausage patty and place it on 1 of the pieces of bread.....on top of that I place a fried egg that has had the yolk broken while being cooked. At this point the sandwich can be put together.....although, I have a customer that insists that it's delicious BUT even better when she also adds a bit of grape jelly!!
It is truly a high protein breakfast!!.....Let me know if any of you dare to try it!

chun chun!!! Oh my god! How the heck are ya?

That sandwich sounds interesting. I like everything in it, just not sure how they would all taste together!

I hope you decide to stick around.

I'll always think of you fondly, remembering the long ago Duck thread...

I'm a picky egg eater - one of the leftover behaviors from childhood - so your brekky sandwich is out for me.

No matter...

I too am a picky egg eater.

All the white has to be cooked, but can not be hard.
The yolk can never ever be broken until I do it on my plate, or I will not eat it.

If I am having an egg with pancakes, i willnot eat the yolk no matter what, but my egg white better be perfect.

We do alot of breakfast items for dinner.
It is CHEAP, easy and always a welcomed meal for my 2 kids..

hey there chun chun!

I've still got your website in my favourites, so I pop in once in a while to check on any changes on the posted menu.

peanut butter with sausage ... hmmmmm gonna pork satay-y

I can cope with that.

Not so sure about pb with eggs.

I occasionally have waffles with poached eggs as a comfort meal - and I've survived getting syrup on the eggs ...

Oh my goodness....the duck thread......that was soooo much fun! I often wished I had saved that one, but, unfortunately I didn't! I was talking about that a month or so ago.....I was trying so hard to remember the adventures of that duck!!

As far as the egg in the sandwich.....just leave it out! We've tried it with or without egg.....we've used bacon or ham instead of sausage....we've even changed cheeses and breads! It's fun to experiment!

ehbeth, I'm embarrassed to say that we haven't updated our website, and it's been a year already! It's hard to believe how fast the time flies by! Actually, my partner's son does the site for us, but he's had a lot going on.

I just LOVE breakfast for supper! Mmmm, bacon, eggs, baked beans, homefries and grits with a couple of pieces of toast and a cup of that's heaven on a plate!

Swimpy it's good to hear from you! I kind of figured you might be the one to try the sandwich! I really hope you do, 'cause I think you'll like it!

I'm going to try to make a concentrated effort to keep popping in much more frequently....I promise!

shewolfnm, it does sound like you've got a few egg issues!.....But, that's ok....just improvise! Leave the egg out...Let's see, (this is really going a bit outside the box) about a large homemade ravioli thats filled with peanut butter! The texture, if you used your imagination, might be similar to that of an egg, although a bit chewier!!!

Article in the NYT today on this very subject! (another great Mark Bittman article) - see link for more images of the different pancakes by Andrew Scrivani

The Minimalist
Pancakes of the World, Dressed for Dinner

Recipe: Italian-Style Vegetable Pancakes

Published: March 28, 2007
Time: At least 30 minutes

About 2 pounds zucchini, eggplant or turnips, peeled if necessary
1/2 onion, peeled and grated
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1/4 cup flour or plain bread crumbs, more as needed
1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1-4 tablespoons butter or extra virgin olive oil.

1. Grate vegetables by hand or with grating disk of a food processor. In a bowl, mix together all ingredients except the butter or oil. Mixture should be fairly loose but not liquid; add a little more flour or bread crumbs if necessary.

2. Put butter or oil in a large skillet and turn heat to medium-high. When pan is hot, put large spoonfuls of batter in pan. Cook, turning once, until nicely browned on both sides, 10 to 15 minutes total. Serve hot or at room temperature.

Yield: 4 servings.

Recipe: Spinach Pancakes

Published: March 28, 2007
Time: 30 minutes

10 ounces fresh spinach, well washed, large stems removed, or 1 10-ounce package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon grated nutmeg
1 tablespoon sugar
1 1/2 to 2 cups buttermilk or thin yogurt
2 eggs
2 tablespoons melted and cooled butter, plus unmelted butter for cooking
1 cup sour cream, optional
1 tablespoon minced lemon peel, optional.

1. Put spinach in a covered saucepan over medium heat, with just the water that clings to its leaves after washing; or plunge it into a pot of salted boiling water. Either way, cook it until it wilts, just a couple of minutes. Drain, cool, squeeze dry and chop.

2. Heat large skillet over medium-low heat while you make batter. Heat oven to 200 degrees. In a bowl, mix together dry ingredients. Place 1 1/2 cups buttermilk in another bowl. Beat eggs into it, then stir in the melted butter. Stir this into dry ingredients, adding a little more buttermilk if batter seems thick; stir in spinach.

3. Place a teaspoon or two of butter in pan. When butter foam subsides, ladle batter onto skillet, making any size pancakes you like. Adjust heat as necessary; first batch will require higher heat than subsequent batches. Add more butter to pan as necessary. Brown bottoms in 2 to 4 minutes. Flip only when pancakes are fully cooked on bottom; they won't hold together well until they are ready.

4. Cook until second side is lightly browned; as pancakes are done, put them on an ovenproof plate in oven for up to 15 minutes. Mix sour cream and lemon peel together and place a small dollop on each pancake.

Yield: 6 to 8 servings.

Recipe: Korean-Style Crisp Vegetable Pancake (Pa jun)

Published: March 28, 2007
Time: 30 minutes

2 cups all-purpose flour
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 tablespoon corn, grape seed, canola or other neutral oil, more as needed
5 scallions, green parts only, cut into 3-inch lengths and sliced lengthwise
20 chives or 5 chopped scallions
1 medium carrot, peeled and grated
1 small yellow or green squash, trimmed and grated
1/2 pound chopped shrimp, optional
1 tablespoon rice or white vinegar
3 tablespoons soy sauce
1 teaspoon sugar.

1. In a medium bowl, mix flour, eggs and oil with 1 1/2 cups water until a smooth batter is formed. Stir scallion greens, chives, carrots, squash and shrimp, if using, into batter.

2. Place an 8- inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, then coat bottom with oil. Ladle in about a quarter of the batter and spread it out evenly into a circle; if first pancake is too thick to spread easily, add a little water to batter for remaining pancakes. Turn heat to medium and cook until bottom is browned, about 3 minutes, then flip and cook for another 2 minutes. Repeat with remaining batter.

3. As pancakes finish, remove them, and, if necessary, drain on paper towels. In a small bowl, mix together the vinegar, soy sauce and sugar. Cut pancakes into small triangles and serve with dipping sauce.

Yield: 6 to 8 servings.

In the meantime, I have a box on my counter of a packaged mix for making Rava Dosai (Gits brand), which are indian pancakes made with semolina flour, rice flour, hydrogenated vegetable oil (ugh), salt, citric acid, sodium bicarbonate, sesame seed powder, cumin seed powder, and permitted antioxidant. Pancakes to be served with chutney..
Well, I'll try these. If I like them I'll try to find a recipe for homemade ones...

In Germany, we eat pancakes for dinner as well. Sometimes with fruits,
jam, sugar or with vegetables. But our pancakes are more like crepes,
rather large and thin.

Anyway, VERY easy and delicious.
