Mmm… Eggs, bacon and waffles. It’s one of the most classic, all-time best breakfast (or breakfast for dinner) options out there.

Light and fluffy waffles, a little crispy around the edges, are the best for soaking in all the golden yellow yolk-y goodness of a perfectly cooked sunny-side-up fried egg, simply prepared with a T-fal frying pan, a little butter, salt and pepper.

Thank you to Krusteaz® and T-fal® for sponsoring this glorious post about one of our favorite family meals: breakfast night!

And bacon!

How can you go wrong with that salty, smoky, crunchy bacon bite??

It’s an excellent savory accent to the mild vanilla sweetness of a Krusteaz waffle!

Those of you who read regularly know that I often make waffles and pancakes from scratch.

I’m happy, however, to try a boxed mix that allows for a different texture and flavor than my own recipe.

And in the case of waffles, the box mix means I use less butter and fewer eggs—perfect when it’s nearing time for a grocery run, and I’m low on both!

In honor of Breakfast Month, Krusteaz sent me a box full of their delicious mixes, everything from waffles and pancakes, to blueberry muffins and cinnamon crumb cake.


And, to make the this February breakfast celebration even *more* fun, my gift box included kitchen gear like a whisk, pancake molds, a tote bag, and a pancake batter pen (my kids loved this).

T-fal also added a frying pan to my loot … excellent for creating the perfect sunny-side-up egg.


If you’re reading this going, “We love the idea of breakfast for dinner, but man. I’m feeling so uninspired,” then don’t worry!

I’ve gotcha covered.

Good ol’ eggs, bacon and toast will always be a quick home run “brinner” in our house. That said, it can pay to be a little more creative, while still keeping things simple!

  1. My family loves pancakes, bacon, eggs and hash browns! Sometimes we just do biscuits and gravy though and it is so filling!

  2. I like egg burritos. They usually require more prep than I am willing to undertake in the mornings, so we eat them almost exclusively as a dinner food, when we have more time.

  3. Once in a while, I like to make sausage Pancake muffins (you just mix up pancake mix & pour it into muffin cups over a piece of sausage.) You can heat a few up & top them with syrup. (My nephews like them with chocolate chips in them instead of sausage.)

  4. I want to try your Spinach, Bacon, Egg and Cheese Casserole! We love breakfast casseroles, waffles, pancakes, omelettes, muffins, fresh fruit, etc.
