Breakfast for dinner with waffles sausage and fruit

Estimated reading time: 6 minutes

This healthy breakfast for kids hack is sponsored by Jones Dairy Farm. I’m excited to partner with them more in 2022, especially because we use their products every single week. (If you’ve ever seen my Costco hauls, you’ve seen me recommend their sausages in BULK!)

Today features one of our favorites – Jones Dairy Farm All Natural Golden Brown Maple Sausage. This breakfast sausage is fully cooked, for fast and easy preparation and is made without binders or fillers (aka it tastes great). It’s also Certified Gluten-Free and allergen friendly, which is especially helpful for families that need to pay close attention to ingredients and allergens.

We like every variety we’ve tried, but this one is super juicy and has a slightly sweet (from the maple!) flavor. It’s delicious.

What is breakfast for dinner called?

Well besides the obvious one, the term brinner is also used. Br (eakfast) + (D) inner = Brinner!

How to Make Breakfast for Dinner

Because this is a mix-and-match situation, you just need to outline the items that you’ll be serving and then figure out what you’ll need to start cooking and how long everything will take.

I built my meal around breakfast sausage for dinner and needed about 10-15 minutes to prep to cook the eggs and sausage and to get the toaster going.

  1. Decide on the items you’ll be including.
  2. Start cooking sausage.
  3. Prep other components.
  4. Serve up your breakfast for dinner and let everyone build their perfect meal.

How to Serve This to the Whole Family

I get it, feeding kids can be tough! But following the Division of Responsibility and knowing your job and your child’s job makes it SO much more enjoyable. You’ll be able to feed your kids any meal, which will help ensure that they are eating a variety of nutritious foods – with plenty of play food sprinkled in. 😉

This is a great meal to serve family style – so put out a few options for each category and let them build their own meal. Even if it doesn’t look exactly like what you would choose for them, it’s important to let them learn these skills!
