Father’s Day…Brunch!

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jun 18, 2010 at 1:47pm

If the father in your life loves a good barbecue, then by all means grill away.  I’m right there with him.  But if you’re looking for a new twist…how about brunch?

(That’s my Daddy-O, with me the day I graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and my no-longer-so-little sis Etta.)

My husband (painting above by Maud Bryt) loves brunch, with all the trimmings – eggs, meats, sweets, mimosas, all of it.  His perfect day would be to play basketball, come home to a fabulous brunch, then stretch out at the pool with a good book and some tunes.  Little dip, little nap, all good.  In fact, that’s exactly what he’ll be doing this coming Sunday.

Some Father’s Day brunch ideas…

Eggs Baked with Scallions, Breadcrumbs & Cream with hot buttered toast
Rich, buttery Asparagus, Leek, & Gruyere Quiche
The killicious BLT I made below: BLT with Fried Egg & Avocado
Potato-Pepper Hash with Baked Eggs
Happy kids, Happy Dad with Buttermilk Pancakes, warm syrup, & a side of crispy bacon
Warm Cream Biscuits filled with fried sausages
Creamy Polenta alongside eggs & ham
Warm Scones with plenty of butter & jam

Add hot coffee or tea, mimosas or Bloody Mary’s.

Here’s a video of some of the pics I put together for my dad’s birthday last year.  Makes a good Father’s Day montage!  Happy Father’s Day everyone!
