Wow-Worthy Father's Day Breakfasts
We're willing to bet the best way to a dad's heart is through a hearty, extra-special breakfast. We're talking bacon and beer pancakes, biscuit and egg "pizzas," and mammoth burritos packed with strips of carne asada-style steak. So if you really want to make the most of Father's Day, forget about toaster pastries and cereal, and let the celebration start with what you put on his plate.
Father's Day Mancake Pancakes
Your dad will flip over this stack of seriously pumped up pancakes. So much more than flour, eggs, and oil, they actually have bacon and beer (the bubbles make them extra moist and fluffy!) cooked right into the batter.
Brunch on the Bayou
"If I could give this more than five stars, I would," says Sheri Wilson. "It was both easy and delicious. I made it for my husband's birthday brunch, and everyone raved."
Father's Day Casserole
Basically, this has everything your pop could want in a complete breakfast — hash brown potatoes, crumbles of sausage, melty cheese, and buttery biscuits — all baked together in a bubbling dish.
Leslie's Strawberry Breakfast Chops
Bacon and sausage are go-to morning proteins. But if your dad's a steak and eggs kind of guy, why not blow his mind with a plate of breakfast pork chops? These delightfully unique, sweet-meets-savory chops are coated with a potent sauce of garlic, horseradish, soy sauce, cayenne pepper, and strawberry preserves.
Considering pancakes and French toast practically fall in the category, why not fudge a few "rules" for Father's Day, and serve dessert for breakfast? "Dust with powdered sugar before serving and store leftovers in the refrigerator" suggests recipe creator, Kelly Loney.
Dad's Breakfast Pizza
If your dad is a fan of sneaking a cold slice in the morning, he'll definitely dig this fresh from the oven breakfast pizza, boasting a buttermilk biscuit crust, soft scrambled egg center, and a bacon-dotted top.
Bacon, Egg, and Cheese Strata
What's a strata, you ask? It's essentially a breakfast bread pudding, and can be primarily prepared in advance. Let cubes of white bread meld with a mustard-spiked custard, as well as bacon, cheese, and mushrooms overnight. The next morning, all you need to do is pop it in the oven, and you'll have an ideal Father's Day breakfast feast.
Dad's Breakfast Bread
"This is a dough like cinnamon roll dough," says PIONEERGIRL. "It's my dad's version of scones, and it is fried in hot oil. Serve with honey, jam, or sprinkled with powdered sugar."

Throw your dad a Father's Day fiesta, starring a baking dish full of flour tortillas, wrapped around hash browns, ham, and diced green chile peppers, smothered with shredded cheddar and enchilada sauce.
