Dad works hard to provide for his family. Father’s Day is coming up soon; below are some special stay-in-bed Father’s Day breakfast ideas you may want to consider for the man in your family’s life. Take a look and see if one or more doesn’t appeal to you.
Have one of the children be a spotter. Ask them to listen to make sure Dad doesn’t get up too early. Better yet, why not have the children go in and snuggle with Dad while you fix breakfast?
Breakfast in bed doesn’t have to be elaborate if it’s done with love. Children bringing in peanut butter and jelly sandwiches they’ve made with their own hands can be just as special as a three-course meal with gourmet coffee. The point is that you’re trying to honor him on Father’s Day and he’ll appreciate the effort.
- 6 eggs
- 1/2 cup small pineapple chunks
- 1/2 cup cubed ham or turkey
- 1/2 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
- 1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
- 6 tablespoons of water
- Salt and pepper to taste
Spray a skillet with non-stick spray and heat it over medium high heat. As the skillet is heating, beat the eggs, water and seasoning. Pour the mixture over the heated skillet and watch until the eggs are almost set. Sprinkle one half of the omelet with the remaining ingredients and fold the remaining half of the omelet over. Continue cooking this for about two more minutes or until the cheese has melted. Cut the omelet into three wedges and serve while hot.
Pancakes or waffles are another popular stay-in-bed breakfast. Once the pancakes or waffles are done, make them special by putting Dad’s favorite fruit over the top, sprinkle them with powdered sugar, and then put whipped cream on top. Dad will feel like he’s dining at a restaurant. Fresh squeezed orange juice and a great cup of Joe will finish the meal.
Is Dad a carnivore from the word ‘go’? Make him his favorite breakfast meat – steak, bacon, or sausage – along with eggs fixed the way he prefers. Don’t forget heart-shaped cookies or toast cut into the shape of a heart with a red jelly to let Dad know how much he’s loved.
Perhaps Dad is trying to lose weight or is on a health kick. Instead of breakfast with fatty meats, prepare a fruit smoothie he can savor. For some added health, toss in a handful of baby spinach while you’re preparing the smoothie; a green smoothie may not look the most appetizing but it sure does taste good and it’s so good for you!
Experts tell you breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Since this is true, you’ll want to treat the most important man in your life to a special stay-in-bed Father’s Day breakfast. Take his favorite foods, serve them with love, and he’ll feel like the king of the world.
