Upside Down Day! 11 Breakfast Recipes Perfect for Dinner


As a kid I loved so-called “upside down day” at school when they’d serve us French toast sticks instead of the typical soggy, savory lunch fare.

While I am not quite the fan of French toast now that I was then, I still love having a good ol’ upside down day for dinner here and there.

Not only does my entire family love breakfast food, but very often it’s also quicker to cook making for a great easy dinner idea any night of the week.

These breakfast recipes are some of my personal favorites if you’re like me and want an esay way to serve up a dinner that’s as delicious as can be.
