Free Book Friday: Brupper, Anyone?


One of my favorite things to do is fix breakfast for supper. If breakfast for lunch is brunch, is breakfast for supper called brupper???

For an autographed pick from my contemporary backlist, tell me your favorite slightly off-the-wall from the usual meat-and-potatoes for dinner and a winner will be chosen Monday by random comment number drawing. And whatever it is, I’ll try it! So don’t be mean!!!! LOL!

    I like doing the breakfast for supper thing to, so that’s nothing new for you.

    I have to ask…is that a cupcake with sprinkles on the edge of that plate?

  2. Suzanne says:

    Yes, that’s a cupcake, LOL! Brupper includes dessert…..:mrgreen:

  3. Emma S says:

    Pancakes, eggs, bacon and a CUPCAKE!!

    Suzanne can I come live wiht you?

  4. Angie says:

    OMG!! We had breakfast for supper last night! Scrambled eggs with cheese, little sizzler sausages, biscuits, grits and hash browns. But I guess the the most unusual thing we have for supper is the dish we call “That Chicken Stuff”.
    It is basically small bites of boneless breaded white meat chicken in a sauce made up of spinach, cream of mushroom soup, cheddar cheese, with a dollop of sour cream or mayo served on a bed of fettucini. It sounds kind of weird, but it is actually very tasty!

  5. Courtney says:

    All summer long my husband and I eat beefsteak tomato sandwiches on toasted rye bread with the perfect combination of mayo, sea salt and pepper. Best when eaten outside in our garden. Just thinking about it makes me hungry and anxious for summer!

  6. Jennifer Yates says:

    I love breakfast for supper!!! Sometimes I’ll eat scrambled cheese eggs just for a snack 😆

    Love the cupcake for dessert there!

    We don’t really do that many unusual things around here for meals. I guess the most unusual thing is when I sometimes eat a microwaveable meal, while everyone else eats what was cooked. :rotfl:

  7. Jennifer Yates says:

    OH!!! I just thought of something a bit unusual that we sometimes do for supper. We sometimes have just appetizers for our meal at home. For example, we will eat BBQ cocktail weinies, meatballs, and other foods that are considered appetizers as our meal instead of fixing a big meal. We will usually fix several different appetizers when we do this so we can have variety. I had forgotten all about that…now I am getting hungry.

  8. Marcy says:

    One of my favorite things is to have Biscuits with Sausage Gravy for dinner. MmMmMm….my dh has any leftover biscuits slathered in butter and honey for dessert. :yes:

  9. Maureen says:

    I haven’t made it in a while but we would have an omlette with cream cheese and bacon for dinner. It’s pretty good but very filling.

    Finnish Pancakes –

    1 cup flour
    1 cup milk
    4 eggs
    l/2 tsp salt
    1 T sugar
    2/4 cup butter

    Sift flour, salt, sugar – add milk, then eggs – beat. Melt better in caserole dish, add mixture, bake at 400 degrees for about 30 min. It will rise like a soufle. We like to add syrup but i’ve heard you can add apples (canned) and cinnamon. (I’m sure this could be doubled)just make sure you give it enough room to rise.

  11. Cheryl S. says:

    Well, this is a toughie. I guess it would have to be my concoction of fried potatoes with cut-up hot dogs and egg scrambled in. I know, sounds bleck but it’s good. It has to be . . . my picky kids eat it. :rotfl:

  12. Robyn says:

    We love cheese dogs; I take the weiners and slit halfway through them from end to end; then I take half a slice of Velveeta cheese(or whatever kind)folded in half and put in the slit. I take weiner wraps or croissants(from the dairy case) and put one weiner in each and roll up from the wide end to the narrow. Then bake as suggested. They come out golden brown and so delicious; add mustard or relish and have a feast.

    Uh! You’re really asking the wrong person because I am not a cook. I remembering this recipe somewhere for when it’s really hot:

    Cream-of-wheat balls in fruit soup

    Note: Make quantities to adapt to the number of people eating the meal. All of this is best if done ahead of time so that it can be cooled in the fridge.

    1. Make cream-of-wheat with milk instead of water. Consistency should be so that you can form balls out of it. So none of that watery stuff. (I recently made the cream-of-wheat as per package, i.e., with water and I’m not surprised that most people don’t like it. My mother always used milk with honey if she wanted it sweeter.)

    2. Make the cream of wheat into balls about an inch or less in diameter.

    3. Store in fridge.

    4. Take one or more cans or jars of fruit (mix different ones if you like but we usually used pitted cherries.)

    5. Pour the juice or liquid in which the fruit came into a pan. Add more juice of a compatible kind so that you end up having a soup effect. Heat and put in just enough gelatine to thicken the juice a little bit. (If the fruit needs to be softer, add that to the juice.) When the gelatine is dissolved, take pot off the heat and cool the “soup” that has resulted. Refrigerate when possible.

    This can be stored for days if necessary. Serve on a hot day when nobody feels like eating a big meal or leave as a desert. We always loved this when my mother made it–even my meat-and-potatoes father. Usually she kept the parts separate so that everyone could take as many balls and soup as necessary.

    Yum,yum. :heart:

    Okay my favorite non supper supper is Strawberry Shortcake. It is sort of a family tradition back during the depression my grandmother would fix it for her family one night. Strawberries were expensive and the buying season much shorter then than now. Then my mother would do it for us once a year during the summer, and now I do it for my kids.

  15. Jaynie R says:

    There’s nothing like a bowl of cereal and icecream before bed *g* I’m weird – I know. :wigglebrow:

  16. TeresaH says:

    I like breakfast for supper too! I like to make breakfast pizzas with english muffins, scrambled eggs, crumbled bacon or sausage (or both!) and gravy…yum!

  17. TeresaH says:

    darn, almost forgot to add some grated cheddar cheese to the pizzas! :fryingpan:

  18. Tori Lennox says:

    Oh, we have those a lot, too, Robyn! Yummy!

    And we also have brupper fairly often. :rofl:

  19. Joyce says:

    My mom use to make potato pancakes and we would have them with butter and applesauce. Haven’t had them since she passed away 13 years ago.

  20. catslady says:

    oh correction correction correction – make that l/4 cup of butter – so sorry (of course if you like things buttery 2/4 or l/2 would have been okay:mrgreen:)

  21. Danni says:

    We do a “chocasupper” as my 5 year old calls it. I make giant chocolate belgian waffles with chocolate chips in them, pour on some chocolate syrup and whipped cream. Then we have bacon that’s been baked with a tiny sprinkle of cocoa on top. We drink hot chocolate made with milk rather than water, and will occassionally add some double fudge muffins for a dessert a little while after the meal.

    We only serve this on a night when I am positive the kids have eaten super healthy earlier in the day. Sometimes I’ll make chocolate crepes instead. I usually time it well with my own monthly increased need for chocolate. ‘Cuz I’m sneaky. :thumbsup:

  22. KimW says:

    We have Swedish pancakes a lot for dinner. Quick and yummy! We also have biscuits and gravy.

  23. Sandy J says:

    When we were young and poor we would make french fry sandwiches. Put french fries lathered in mustard between two pieces of bread and they were pretty tasty. Now that we are old and poor, we still do the same thing just because we like them. :thumbsup:

  24. Danica says:

    Considering That Man has been feeding my kids cereal for dinner at least one night a week, I’m not sure I have any good suggestions.

    My favorite is the ever-changing surprise stir fry. Since everyone hates leftovers, I turn them into a stir fry and no one every knows the difference. 🙂

  25. Mary says:

    My husband and I have linner, it’s an early dinner around lunch time.

  26. Laurie says:

    We eat brupper a lot too!! French toast, scrambled eggs… my kid’s favorite is a cheese strudel with phyllo dough. I don’t have the time to make the dough from scratch like my mother-in-law does. It’s to die for when she makes it!

  27. Maddie says:

    A bag of Lay’s potato chips, chunks of cheddar cheese, glass of white wine. I do not serve this to children.
