Breakfast for Dinner!

I really love breakfast foods but not always in the morning. Sometimes it's fun to turn the day around and have breakfast for dinner. Tonight's dinner was really easy since I didn't even make the waffles from scratch. I used Van's Flax Waffles and they are pretty tasty actually, especially with pure maple syrup. I have a couple of tips about scrambled eggs that you probably already know and do but if not here you go: Never make scrambled eggs in a skillet (which I always used to do). Make them in a smallish saucepan and for some reason they turn out so much better. For five eggs scrambled I melt a T of butter, whisk the eggs, add a touch of water and pour into the saucepan and just continue stirring gently as the eggs cook up. I don't add any salt or pepper--better to do that at the table and to each person's preference. Tonight I threw some cheddar and chopped scallions on for color. Now to the bacon--I always bake my bacon in the oven. I put parchment down on a cookie sheet and lay however many pieces I'll need on that. Preheat oven to 400. I bake for 20/25 minutes depending on the thickness of the bacon. you may have to play around with the timing of that given the differences in ovens and bacon thickness. I then drain on paper towels well.
