Breakfast, meet dinner (we call that brinner!). The most important meal of the day comes twice when you serve up these morning recipes for supper. So grab your scrambled eggs and bacon, because these easy brinner recipes have all of your breakfast favorites!

Huevos Tacos con Queso

Never choose between taco night and brinner again—just combine the two! Fill your corn tortillas with scrambled eggs, pinto beans, and salsa for a breakfast-meets-dinner recipe gone Mexican.

Mashed Potato-Egg Casserole

One part mashed potatoes plus one part breakfast casserole equals a super-delish dinner. For a stunning presentation, leave the egg yolks intact and slide them on top of the mashed potatoes. Serve with a quick arugula salad.

Jambalaya Egg Bake

Not all brinner recipes are hearty enough to satisfy, but this egg bake won't send you to bed hungry. This recipe has a whopping four sources of protein (sausage, shrimp, chicken, and eggs), plus white rice and tomato sauce. There won't be any need for a midnight snack!

Paleo Spicy Poached Eggs in Tomato Sauce

Poached eggs are a breakfast favorite, but serving them in a thick, rich tomato sauce makes them hearty enough for dinner. No canned tomatoes here—2 pounds of fresh tomatoes go into this skillet recipe.

Greens, Eggs, and Ham Frittata

It's not quite green eggs and ham, but we're satisfied with mixed greens alongside regular eggs and ham. Plus, it's impossible not to like the 2 cups of cheese in this frittata.

Bacon and Egg Rice Bowls

We're always on board for eggs and bacon in the morning, so it doesn't take much convincing for us to serve this combo at dinner. For a hearty meal, make it bowl-style with plenty of brown rice.

Bibimbap Bake-Up

This Korean-inspired brinner recipe features eggs baked on top of a bed of rice, tofu, ground beef, and broccoli. Spice up your individual plate as much as you want by serving with sriracha and kimchi.

Bacon and Egg Burritos

Instead of beef and beans, fill your burritos with bacon and eggs to make a brinner masterpiece. You can experiment with your favorite burrito add-ins, but we always reach for salsa, avocado, and cheese.

Bacon and Egg Spaghetti

Bacon and eggs meet spaghetti in this brinner pasta dish. You can cook the eggs to any doneness you'd like, but if you leave the yolks a little runny, the yolks become an excellent "sauce" for the pasta.

Egg and Fried Rice Ole

How can you make fried rice worthy of the brinner title? Put an egg on it! Instead of the usual scrambled eggs, this bowl of rice, corn, and peppers gets dressed up for brinner with a fried egg on the side.

Breakfast Grilled Cheese

Give grilled cheese an upgrade from white bread with this breakfast twist that uses frozen waffles instead. Load it up with your favorite cheese, scrambled eggs, and bacon for a quick dinner that combines all your breakfast favorites.

Egg Baguette Bakes

If you love your soup in a bread bowl, why not make a breakfast casserole in one? Bake Italian sausage, eggs, and cheese together into hot, bubbly deliciousness inside hollowed-out baguettes for a rich, decadent dinner.

Fried Egg BLT Breakfast Sandwiches

BLT sandwiches and breakfast? Count us in! We paired the natural combo of bacon and eggs with everyone's favorite sandwich to create this loaded brinner recipe. To make it a more authentic BLT, add a slice of tomato alongside the avocado.

Eggs and Canadian Bacon in Pita Pockets

If you need dinner fast, these pita pockets are the answer. Ready in just 20 minutes, they're filled with good-for-you ingredients like scrambled eggs, Canadian bacon, and avocado slices.

Pork and Hot Pepper Hash

This hash recipe is hearty enough to make the leap from morning to night. Ground pork, a full pound of potatoes, and sunny-side up eggs will fill your belly, while poblano and jalapeno peppers set your taste buds on fire.

Chicken Breakfast Burritos

These breakfast-style burritos are filled with eggs and chicken, so they'll surely fill you up at dinnertime. Plus, you can prep these burritos 24 hours in advance, then give them a quick zap in the microwave before serving.

Egg and Veggie Casserole

Onions, sweet potatoes, yellow potatoes, broccoli. There's not much this egg and veggie casserole is missing! A sprinkling of Manchego cheese on top completes this healthy breakfast-for-dinner recipe.
