Breakfast for Dinner – “Rosti” Quiche!
When my kids were little, my husband traveled quite often for business. The change in routine and the loss of their favorite playmate was hard for my boys – Mom just couldn’t make the same “growly” sounds as Dad and let’s face it – I just was NOT good at submarine maneuvers in the bathtub! To cope with this dismal state of affairs, I developed “breakfast for dinner”!!! Smiley faced pancakes and fruit, scrambled eggs with their favorite bacon gave us all something to look forward too – for them it was the novelty and for me it was a welcome reprieve from fixing an entire dinner without my better half/ chief babysitter around!
Well, a number of years have passed since those days – my husband now rarely travels and smiley faced pancakes do not fill up two teenage boys. But on occasion, we still have “breakfast for dinner” – a new and more substantial version though!! Crispy potatoes, eggs, cheese, tomatoes and spinach – a slightly more “elegant” version of an omelette and hashbrowns.
