How great is the ‘Breakfast for Dinner’ concept? It’s such a comforting, hearty, and delicious way to end the day isn’t it?!
I recently had the opportunity to create a ‘breakfast for dinner’ experience using none other than the very best breakfast staple to ever grace our pantries~ Krusteaz!
Yep..top quality, breakfast and baking mixes that can magically morph into some incredible dinnertime fare, in the easiest and most hassle free way ever.
Krusteaz has made the process of getting a delicious meal on the table as simple as can be, without sacrificing an ounce of quality, or taste. For my breakfast for dinner culinary creation, I thought whipping up a Monte Cristo mash-up would make that dinner bell ring loudly..and WOW~ did it ever!
Ditch the that
old and boring typical Monte Cristo batter and reach for something that can jazz up that sweet & savory sammy like nothing else can. I’m talking about Pancake Batter! That’s right…fluffy, slightly sweet, and golden-fried pancake batter!
Krusteaz Pancake batter hugs that cheesy, sausage filled Monte Cristo and won’t let go, they become one in the most beautiful and tasty way ever. This “breakfast” takes your dinner to levels unreached until now.
Like magic, that warm, golden Pancake holds together 2 sausage breakfast patties, canadian bacon, and 2 cheeses like it’s no big deal. THEN~ when you sprinkle those beauties with a shower of sweet powdered sugar and a nice dip into a pool of berry jam.. you’ll never be the same. And all will be quiet around that “breakfast for dinner” table (other than the sounds of pure joy as the “Ooh’s and Ahh’s” make their escape)..lol!
What you’ll need for 4 Montes:
2 cups of Krusteaz Pancake Mix
8 PRE-COOKED Sausage Patties
4 slices of American Cheese
4 slices of Swiss Cheese
4 slices of Canadian Bacon..OR thinly sliced Ham
Strawberry or Raspberry Preserves for topping & dipping
Powdered Sugar..for well, Sugar! 🙂
Skewers for security
Oil for frying~ I used Canola
In a large bowl, prepare the Krusteaz Pancake batter according to the box instructions. Set aside…
Now simply stack all the cheesy and meaty Monte goodies…
Layer that folded stack of monte middles between the 2 sausage patties and secure it with a skewer…
NOW~ for the fun part! Scoop spoonfuls of that glorious pancake batter all over that monte mountain…
And gently place it into the hot (350 degree) oil…
Let it sit in the oil until the bottom starts to get golden and secured, then slowly and carefully remove the skewer, and flip that monte over in the oil to fry up the other side…
Let them cool a bit…
And dust them with a light shower of powdered sugar…
With a WOW factor like this, dinner will be a huge success…
Definitely don’t get too distracted by their beauty and forget a nice topping of Berry preserves
…and then DIG IN to that Breakfast for Dinner delight! ~Enjoy! : )

I love overnight French Toast – so easy to make at night and bake in the morning! Your Monte Cristos look pretty darn delicious, though!
I’m obsessed with any kind of breakfast at just about any hour, but my favorite would have to be something I first had years ago at a local restaurant called Benedict’s Cousin, a southern twist on Egg’s Benedict. Split biscuit, sausage patty and over medium egg on each, and the whole thing covered in sausage gravy. I’m drooling just typing that!!
Breakfast foods are the best! It’s almost impossible to pick one. Almost. But my favorite would have to be pancakes. Pretty much any variation of pancakes. They’re hearty, filling, delicious, sweet, go great with bacon or sausage, you can top them in a million ways (okay, maybe not a MILLION but lots!). They’re good with chocolate, fruit, peanut butter, nuts… the possibilities with pancakes are really almost limitless!
My favorite breakfast is huevos rancheros with salsa verde, eggs done over-medium with just enough runny yolk to mix with the salsa to be scooped up with hot buttered tortillas… and a cinnamon coffee! (and maybe some nice crispy shredded hashbrowns con chorizo with that too.)
I think my favorite breakfasts are breakfast burrito w/sausage,egg, cheese and salsa. But I’m gonna give these monte christos a try
i am a huge fan of crepes any kind any time of day and i have always wanted to try chicken and waffles
MY FAVORITE BREAKFAST IS BUTTERMILK PANCAKES AND SAUSAGE PATTIES.
French Toast, SOS, Crepes. I love breakfast any time of the day
My favorite breakfast is eggs Benedict topped with a half of fried softshell crab. It’s the most amazing thing ever!!
Savory stuffed French toast!
my favorite breakfast is homemade biscuits with homemade sausage gravy… but I’m definitely going to try this…
My favorite breakfast is sausage, cheese and 2 eggs fried well on a Kizer roll…ny deli breakfast sandwich!!!!
