Father’s Day is a day to give thanks to all the amazing fathers that keep this world going around!
By being good fathers and providers for their families, they certainly deserve a day that’s all about them and easing them into relaxation! What better way to start the day than by making them a Father’s Day breakfast?
Father’s Day Breakfast Ideas
There’s a few ways to go about serving dad his Father’s Day breakfast: you can serve it in bed and surprise him, or you can bring him his coffee and a menu at the table when he wakes up and make it to order! Here are a few ideas to consider adding to the menu:
- Necktie pancakes: For kids, any kind of “just add water” pancake mixes will work best. These pancakes can easily be made using a condiment bottle with a pointed tip. Simply draw the outlines of the ties and fill it in with more mix. Add fruit, if dad likes, to make “patterns” on the tie!
- Hole-in-one: Also called Bullseyes, Eggies in a Basket, or Adam and Eves, this is simply an egg fried into the middle of a piece of toast! Butter the pan, let the kids select a cookie cutter shape appropriate for dad and cut out the middle of the bread, cook the egg in the cutout area in the pan, flipping as you would a regular fried egg, just how dad likes it!
- “Dad” french toast: Make french toast, laying three pieces side-by-side for dusting with powdered sugar. But before you sprinkle on the powdered sugar, lay cutouts of letters on top of the french toast spelling out “D-A-D,” then sprinkle and remove the letters. This will leave the word “DAD” on his toast!
- Breakfast burritos: Some dads have to work on Father’s Day, and it stinks! So making him something that will be easy to take on the go is a good idea. Make burritos with sausage or bacon, egg and cheese. You can get an assembly line going for this one! Pro Tip: Sweet barbecue sauce on a breakfast is DELICIOUS!
- Bacon waffles: If you have a waffle iron, just teach the kids how to use it responsibly, while watching them if there isn’t one old enough to supervise. Make bacon, cut it up and mix it into the waffle mix. Then you will make the waffles as normal. Yum!
- Steak n’ eggs: There’s nothing more manly than steak for breakfast! You might need to make the steak, but the kids can certainly help with the eggs or any garnishing necessary!
If your husband or father has to work on his day, then be sure to send him off with a few other sides such as fresh fruit and his favorite snack. Also, it’s sweet for the kids to write him a little note telling him just how much they love him to help get him through the day he shouldn’t be working on! As for the dads that are off, remember to make the day as peaceful and pleasant as possible, even if it means finding a sitter for the kids and taking him to his favorite places!
