Breakfast for Dinner: Steak & Eggs

Breakfast for dinner–we’ve all been there. It was a late night at the office or there’s only eggs in the fridge, so you whip up said eggs with vegetables or eat a couple bowls of cereal for dinner. But, let’s all be honest, we really enjoy breakfast foods any time of the day, right? It’s a guilty pleasure that let’s us stretch our wallets and be creative with the ingredients left in the refrigerator.  

The next time you’re thinking about making breakfast for dinner, make it extra delicious with our version of steak and eggs for under $25. Crispy cubes of steak and the no-fail fried egg is our go-to, and with fresh avocado slices and an herby Chimichurri sauce in just a few simple steps, we bet it’ll be your favorite too. The bulk of the work is prepping the ingredients and then all you have to do is assemble. This recipe makes enough for two, so go on and treat yourself and your bestie!
