Our last challenge for Weekend Cook and Tell was for all of you to share your favorite breakfast dishes for any time of day. We called this Breakfast For Dinner. We appreciated your early morning eats both in recipe, photo, and story form. Here are our favorite breakfast dishes.

Rocquie does not wake up ravenous in the morning. In fact, she says she cannot even smell upon first waking up. Rocquie, for this reason we have this post. You are not alone. To placate her breakfast-loving children and spouse, Rocquie whipped up a Potato & Spinach Frittata served with broiled grapefruit. Placate, indeed!

If you've been to Spain, chances are you've tried zahavah's dish: Tortilla Española. Tortilla Española is traditionally made up of egg, potato, and onion. Some regions may incorporate additional ingredients. I'd say one of the most impressive aspects of watching a Spaniard whip up this dish is the flip. Ta-da!

Many of us Serious Eaters simply don't have time for breakfast in the morning. missmochi falls into this camp. Granola bars to the rescue? For this reason, she also eats breakfast for dinner. If you're a fan of Southern Biscuits and Gravy, or if you'd like to try an alternate version with Bacon Gravy, missmochi has tasted the way to greatness on your behalf.

She's Cookin' gets all eggy on us. Her Green Eggs & Ham Pizza combines eggs, kale pesto, ham, and parmesan, to make a hearty-healthy breakfast treat.

ClaireOOTO shares her go-to list for twists on breakfast. We think the Cider Pancakes With Warm Fruit Compote sounds particularly promising.

cooklikeachampion writes, "These Baked Ranchero Eggs With Blistered Cheese are hearty and spicy enough to be eaten as dinner, but you may not want to wait until then to enjoy them." We'd be inclined to agree. Of course, if you have a sensitive morning constitution, just add a Tums to the dish. It'll be worth it.

Finally, xiaozhic shares a recipe for Congee - perfect for any time of day and even for those with unsettled stomachs first thing in the morning.

A big thank you to everyone for sharing their sandwich love for this week's Weekend Cook and Tell challenge. Be sure to head over to Talk and read about next week's challenge: Love For Legumes
