Breakfast Meals

Ideas for breakfast meals whose recipes can also be eaten for dinner

Breakfast meals need not be boring, after all this is the most important time of the day. Breakfast for Dinner: Recipes for Frittata Florentine, Huevos Rancheros, Sunny-Side Up Burgers, and More!, by Lindsay Landis, demonstrates that anything from a snack to a full meal can be brightened up, cooked quickly and easily using traditional morning food ingredients. Below we review her new cookbook and provide links which take you to the breakfast recipes.

The Drummer Boy

The Drummer Boy is my latest novel about the ghost of a Gordon Highlander Drummer Boy from the Battle of Waterloo who haunts a modern day army nurse.

Chapters take place in modern day Aberdeen, at the Noose & Monkey bar and restaurant as well as His Majesty’s Theatre and Garthdee. Other scenes take place at Tidworth and during the Napoleonic War.

Read the first three chapters for free on most devices.

Breakfast For Dinner

Recognising that not all people get up in the morning and that most still want to eat morning foods Lindsay has created over 100 meals with a delicious and tantalising twist. There are photographs of each of the ideas that make you want to reach for your fork and start eating from her pages. These pictures have been taken by her husband Taylor Hackbarth and together with relatives favourite dishes they have produced a stunning family cookbook. Not only are we treated to a photo for each, but when describing methods of cooking there are staged images. This is handily seen on the step by step instructions for easy crepes page. Other tips include how to freeze homemade pizza. As an example of the stunning images here is their parmesan beignets photo:

Parmesan Beignets

This cookbook is alive and vibrant thanks to these superb colourful photos which range from the Mexican huevos rancheros tacos to the asparagus pastry tart and the scrummy doughnut fudge sundaes.

There are basics around the kitchen from tips like how to make a perfect poached egg in a saucepan, poaching cups and even the microwave. From here readers progress quickly to international meals like Italian style stuffed French toast with spinach ricotta filling and Hawaiian Loco Moco.

Quick dishes that can easily be prepared at home include frittata Florentine which can be combined with any meat, vegetable or cheese ingredients. It also includes ingredients like crunchy cornflakes crusted chicken tenders with a buttermilk garlic herb dip or bacon fried rice with green peas.

Healthier alternatives are included such as goat cheese monte cristos which is a lighter grilled substitute for a deep fried turkey, ham and cheese sandwich.

Vegetarian breakfast meals include broccoli and cauliflower omelettes or polenta cakes with shiitake mushrooms.

Fish dishes include grapefruit risotto with seared scallops.

Filling and economic meals include sunny side burgers, chicken and biscuit waffles and arugula salad.


For those wanting ideas for a special occasion why not try sausage ravioli with white wine and sage cream sauce or maple glazed pork meatballs.

Sweet toothed readers are not neglected with the addition of parmesan beignets French pastries, bacon jam preserve, maple bacon cupcakes or Moroccan chicken cinnamon rolls.

Bacon Jam

Not forgetting that the morning meal is a time to wake up Lindsay has included espresso baked beans and mocha ice cream with biscotti crust. Tea lovers are not left out; there is a decadent earl grey panna cotta.

Snacks include garlic bagel chips with cream and artichoke dip and mini blt biscuits. Whilst party style foods offer the home cook a chance to try mini zucchini and pesto quiches and bacon and maple syrup infused whisky. Other drinks include grapefruit herb sodas with thyme, basil or mint with adult versions with a splash of gin, vodka or rum.

There are alternatives throughout. For example on the lemon poppy seed thumbprints cookies she suggests changing the lemon curd with chocolate hazelnut spread.

It brings a new dimension to both these mealtimes and this cookbook is a must for any kitchen shelve.

The enticing dishes will ensure it stays on the work surface and like our copy soon gets covered in loving food stains.
