Beat the clock with "breakfast for dinner" on Hallowe'en night

Hallowe’en  can be a frantic, flurry of frightful fun and I have to say I love it all.  There’s dinner to make, kids to squeeze into costumes ready to burst from the coats we insist they wear underneath,  reminders to keep safe,  and  Jack-o-lanterns to light. It may be tempting to order-in, but why do that when you can make a quick and delicious meal with eggs? If you’ve got eggs, you’ve got options. Here are six easy ideas you can pull off even on a busy Hallowe’en night. Enjoy!

  1. Baked Cinnamon French Toast. Baked in the oven so you can cook 6 pieces of bread at once, this is a great time-saver.  Serve with fruit (fresh, frozen or canned) and a glass of milk.
  2. A big pan of cheesy scrambled eggs, raw peppers and carrots with dip, toast and milk.
  3. Egg burritos made with cheese and salsa.  Give it an adult twist with jalepeno peppers. Serve with a tossed green salad and milk.
  4. Make up a quick egg salad and serve it as a dip with vegetables and pita wedges or bread sticks.  Add some chunks of cheese, fresh fruit and milk.  Tip: make hard-cooked eggs the day before. Did you know they keep fresh for a week in the fridge?
  5. Family Style Apple and Sausage Omelette.  Serve with frozen mixed veggies,  whole grain bread and milk.
  6. Egg fried rice made with frozen veggies and served with fruity smoothies.  Tip: make extra rice the night before so you’ll have leftovers.
