Have a hankering for frittata? Try a potato cup frittata for dinner. These individually-sized portions were designed by Sara O’Donnell to feed a hungry, army-sized family. But the dish also works great as a solo dinner—with extra to freeze! Just combine with a salad and you have a healthy, but filling, alternative to another night of soup or grilled cheese.
The best part of this recipe is its versatility. Don’t like the sound of a spicy Mexican egg dish? No problem! You can use almost any egg-and-veggie combo to fill these potato cups, so work with what you have in the fridge or get creative with your favorite ingredients. We happen to like a little spice with our dinner so we stuck to the original.

Instead of eggs with toast points for breakfast try white cheddar and dijon baked eggs for dinner. Nothing beats dipping a toasted sliver of bread into the yolk of a soft-boiled egg. However, this baked eggs dish, by Averie Cooks, may have just edged out its competition.
In keeping with the individual portion size of the breakfast original, use ramekins instead of a casserole dish as the baking vessel, and bake in the oven for only 10-15 minutes. The white cheddar cheese, spicy Dijon mustard, and pieces of diced tomato all add incredible taste, saltiness and color to the eggs. Serve with a few slices of crusty bread and a vinaigrette-doused spring green salad, and you’ve got a superb dinner.
Instead of boring breakfast toast try Cheesy Green Chili and Bacon Buttermilk Biscuits by the Picky Palate. While breakfast toast usually gets inventive with its choice of spreads [berry butter, balsamic-soaked strawberry jam, etc.] for dinner we need something a little more satisfying and a lot more substantial.
Savory buttermilk biscuits, chock full of bacon, cheddar cheese, and green chilies, will do just the trick. Maybe you can even pairing these biscuits with a slab of meatloaf or a hunk of roast beef for real dinner experience.
