September is National Breakfast Month, which means I'll be chowing down on chilaquiles and frying up some challah French toast. And while I love sitting down to these staples in the morning, I often want breakfast at dinnertime, too.

As it turns out, I'm not alone in my cravings. According to a recent survey conducted by Krusteaz, 91 percent of Americans eat breakfast for dinner, and 67 percent of respondents with children said they serve breakfast for dinner at least once a month.

In honor of this tasty trend, I’ve rounded up five of Cooking Light’s best breakfast-for-dinner options that transition seamlessly from morning to evening. So grab the eggs and break out the bacon—it's brinner time!

Libanais BreakfastThe three major components here—homemade tabbouleh, soft-boiled eggs, and warm pita wedges—meld together beautifully to create a unique and satisfying Middle-Eastern meal.

Savory Bread Puddings with Ham and CheddarSweet bread puddings are undeniably tasty, but I tend to favor the savory versions. This one incorporates loaded baked potato fixings for a comforting dinner the whole family will enjoy.

Spinach, Green Onion, and Smoked Gouda QuicheWith its buttery crust and mix of hearty fillings, there’s a lot to love about custard-y quiche. Fresh baby spinach and smoked Gouda cheese elevate this brunch fave to dinnertime status.

Sweet Potato and Canadian Bacon Hash: Sweet potatoes are thrown into this tasty hash, which is sure to convert any brinner skeptics. The salty Canadian bacon adds a welcomed dose of decadence.

Bacon and Egg Sandwiches with Caramelized Onions and Arugula: Skip the drive-thru and make these breakfast sandwiches at home—the runny yolk and sweet, caramelized onions will make this dish a new go-to.
