47 (Meatless!) Breakfast-for-Dinner Recipes

As far as I’m concerned, breakfast for dinner is a completely legit way to close the day. It’s fast, it’s easy, and – unless it consists only of a chocolate-glazed donut – it’s pretty hearty and satisfying too. It’s a perfect dinnertime option to remember this time of year, as school starts back up and we’re putting those lazy hazy summer days behind us until next year (whimper).

Thanks to foods like eggs, oatmeal, nuts, yogurt, avocados, and fresh produce, vegetarian breakfast-for-dinner recipes are plentiful. So plentiful, in fact, that I’ve rounded up 47 of them right here!

Cheesy

Okay, so there are only two recipes in this category, but they both look so scrumptious, they deserve their own designation. I may never go back to dinner-for-dinner again.
