Here are nine breakfasts for dinner -- eggs, pancakes, waffles and everything in between -- to treat yourself, your wallet and your schedule. You deserve it.

Although they go by many other names -- egg in the basket, egg-in-the-hole, bird's nest, to name a few -- in our house we called them "one-eyed sandwiches," and the technique originated with my grandfather. I'm biased, to be sure, but there are a few small details that I think really make Grandpa's egg sandwiches better than all the other versions out there. The first is the use of white bread. Grandpa always preferred Pepperidge Farm, which has a bit of sweetness to it. Another key step is toasting the bread before you fry it. This ensures that it's nice and crisp, which makes a nice counterpart to the salty, soft-cooked egg. - Merrill
