When I was a kid I remember seeing my dad make some eggs in the evening and I wondered why? After all that was breakfast food.

Then I thought, why not?

Since then will eat anything any time of the day.

For a while used to be on the road a bit and would love to stop at the diners/truck stops that would offer anything on the menu 24 hours.

Eight in the morining you wanted the spaghetti and meatballs or ten at night the bacon and eggs, fine.

I wonder where this idea that eggs, pancakes, are 'traditional' breakfast foods came from.

It certainly was not the case a couple of centuries ago.

Ditto. I could eat breakfast all day, but I'm of the mind set that when it comes time to fill the void, whatever is available is acceptable (obviously as long as it is still good for consumption). I've had creamy curried chicken and rice pilaf for breakfast, leftovers of various casseroles for breakfast, oh, and the famous leftover cold pizza for breakfast. It's pretty much whatever is available.

I hate restaurants because there are so many options. I'm usually game to try anything once, so all the options cause me to take longer. I prefer looking in the fridge/pantry and making something from whatever is there.

I will eat leftovers for breakfast and breakfast for dinner, no problem. I won't make anything in the morning though, just heat it up.

I often enjoy a piece of cake, crostata, strudel etc. or a few biscuits for breaky, like Pds, to me sweets are welcome any time of the day!!

I don't see anything wrong with having pancakes for dinner, we do it occasionally when we get in late, tired and have nothing prepared. Very quick and satisfying solution. Omelettes are also dinner favourites, it happens that omelette, or frittata is a perfectly legit dinner menu in Italy!

Also when I am alone muesli and yogurt can be my dinner.

When I am in England I like to have those hearty full English breakfast now and then, but usually I am not in a mood to eat anything too substantial earlier in the day. I prefer saving hearty fares for evening.

cooked breakfasts, excluding porridge which we have often, are a real treat, What we eat tends to depend on the daily schedule, but DH went through a phase of wanting full english everyday. I made sure that phase did not last long, lol. Breakfast for supper, fo us, is comfort food or lack of inspiration food.

My mother remembers having steaks and eggs for breakfasts on the farm when a substantial meal ws needed to get you through the day....but my great grandparents house served five meals a day most days!

The option for me isn't up there...Shunka described it perfectly "equal oppertunities eater"! We eat what feel good at whatever time....trying to keep it healthyish though!

If its good, I can eat just about anything at any time... otoh, it it's NOT good... I don't want it at any time. I do love beakfast for dinner often. Had it last night, in fact, after a long and brain-draining day.

Love turkey and dressing for breakfast the day after Thanksgiving...

cold pizza anytime... cold pasta, NEVER!

Sweets, depends upon my mood and the time of the month!
Wine is the food that completes the meal.

We don't eat breakfast, as such. My husband gets up at 4:30, and all he wants is coffee, and I've never been hungry when I get up in the morning.
We do love breakfast food, though, and treat ourselves to brunch on Sundays.
I don't hoot with the night-owls anymore, but when I did, I loved breakfast about 2:00 AM. There's a local greasy spoon here that stays open 24 hours, and I've had many a slippery egg and lots of "wallpaper paste" gravy there. At that hour, we didn't care.
We get by with a little help from our friends

Sweets in the morning for me...whether it's a roll or cookies...or whatever. Love to dunk in my coffee. Just wondering....what ever happened to supper?
I always call it dinner now...but when we grew up it was breakfast, lunch and supper.

We flip-flop meals in our house, too. In fact, I usually plan at least one meatless meal a week and that's where omelets, etc. come in handy. I also think quite a few of Americans enjoy breakfast all day long. Cracker Barrel is evidence of that. As is Bob Evans.

When I was a child two of my favorite supper meals could've been classified as breakfast by most people.

I was raised as a Catholic and, in those days, Lent and meatless Fridays were strictly observed. My father was a country doctor and often was paid in fresh produce, meat and poultry. As you might guess, we ate well and never wanted for fresh food. It wouldn't be unusual for him to leave his office at the end of the day, walk to his car and find the back seat filled with fresh sweet potatoes, tomatoes, whatever was plentiful. Yum!

The first meal I really loved consisted of a bowl of buttered new potatoes (with the skins on), a bowl of steamed fresh green beans and a big platter of fried eggs. I can almost taste it as I type the words.

The other meal was something my mother came up with/created, I'm not sure. Whatever, this meal was made up of banana fritters doused with maple syrup and side bowls of creamed corn. My brothers and sisters and I would try to guess what kinds of creatures the fritters looked like when they came out of the hot oil.

I'll eat breakfast at suppertime anytime. Rather it be eggs, bacon, hash browns and toast, pancakes or oatmeal. I find it very comforting.
