I once referenced Brinner when writing about that lovely, Elvis-inspired breakfast we had in Portland, OR this summer. It seemed like the perfect type of dish for one of our favorite family traditions — breakfast for dinner (aka Brinner!) I think a lot of people enjoy eating eggs and bacon or pancakes every once in awhile for dinner… and some of us get a little fanatical about it. I submit to you Exhibit A from one of our favorite shows:
Sometimes we go all out for Brinner (we have been known to whip up some maple ice cream with chocolate-covered bacon) and sometimes we are just looking for a simple, satisfying break from the usual. After what has seemed like an endless week of holiday eating, Brinner was sounding mighty appealing. We received some venison breakfast sausage from a family member as part of a gift pack of goodies from his ranch. This seemed the time to give it a spin so we sliced it up and put it in the skillet…
And then the hubby whipped up some of Alton Brown’s pancakes and we were all set for a quick Brinner.
We’ll consider this Part I in the Brinner series — more ideas and recipes to follow, y’all!
