In recent times, breakfast fare has become popular as a meal instead of the traditional first meal.
While some may argue that breakfast is best in the morning, others prefer breakfast fare at dinner time, and many take breakfast at lunchtime (not brunch), some may even argue that they prefer breakfast at supper time.
Whenever you decide to have breakfast could depend on the craving or the availability of options.
For example, I’ve craved scrambled eggs and raisin bagel at dinnertime, or an open face avocado toast with a slightly runny fried egg on top, dusted with cracked black pepper. I know, very specific, but sometimes a craving is a craving.
