At some point in my early 20s, a period of dubious choices, questionable judgments, and a neurotic desire to "grow up" (somebody knows reallyHow to write a tax return?), breakfast became a real consolation for me. Whether I was stressed, heartbroken, worried or angry - or a hectic combination of all of the above - crispy fried eggs and potato hash browns gleaming with oil were always there for me. Sometimes my waffle iron performed in the evening, a sweet respite after a long day at work. Other times there were sprawling moments with bacon, eggs and cheese, no matter what surface - this classic breakfast combination will always feel like a warm hug to me.

There is something exciting, magical about separating a dish from its assigned meal. It's a departure from the arbitrary rules that govern what we can eat and when. Even now, as so-called adults, I enjoy this tiny act of rebellion. He reminds me that I make my own decisions. So who cares what anyone thinks? Maybe I want to have a big pile of French toast with peanut butter for dinner. Who can stop me? Nobody! How wonderful is that ?!

How do you like your balls best?

From the creamy Tamago Sando from Japan to the skillfully formed boats made of bread dough from Georgia to my favorite brunch dish, Huevos Rancheros: Eggs are the mainstay of numerous breakfast dishes from all over the world. It is not surprising that eggs are one of the first ingredients for which we develop preferences and which we can reel off at any time ("A wax-soft boiled egg, please!").

When I think of eggs for dinner, shakshuka will forever be the winner, but there is no reason why we shouldn't apply the wisdom of having breakfast in the evening to other classic egg breakfast dishes. If you are in the mood for something light and fluffy, or if you want to balance a particularly carbohydrate-heavy lunch, how about a soufflé omelette? If you want to get really full, you can combine the eggs with basic ingredients from the pantry, for example with coconut milk or canned tomatoes. Fried, poached, boiled, baked or scrambled, the range of textures and tastes that you can achieve with a simple egg is huge. That means: Little reason to be bored and plenty of space for delicious creations.

Breakfast means something different for everyone. It could be a warm bowl of creamy cooked grain or a pile of pancakes drowned in sugary syrup. Whether sweet or savory, a feast like in a café or a small snack that you take with you on the way to work, no other meal has as much to offer as breakfast. Crispy baked potatoes, velvety breakfast risotto with pieces of bacon, chicken with waffles, or a full-blown breakfast pizza - the greatest joy about breakfast for dinner is the fact that there are no rules!

New ideas for dinner

Make the classic snack your own: The formula is foolproof because pretty much everything tastes better when you put it on crispy bread slices, at any time of the day or night. With a mug of fluffy ricotta in the fridge, you'll have a solution for any dinner emergency. How about ricotta and pear toast, toast with spicy kumquat chutney or with hot berries? Savory options can include ham, cheese, roasted vegetables, or smoked salmon. And the list can go on indefinitely. Don't forget to add a fatty component because, let's face it, most of the bread we eat is unfortunately not freshly baked, but has been in our kitchens for a few days. So smear a generous portion of Greek yogurt or herb butter on your bread, or sprinkle it bravely with a little olive oil, and off you go!
