Can you believe Father’s Day is this Sunday? We’ve been sharing Father’s Day gift ideas for a few weeks to help you prepare for the special day, but we know they might not work for everyone. If you aren’t a DIY-er, but would like to surprise Dad with something homemade this year, why not cook him a delicious breakfast? We’ve compiled a list of simple, Dad-friendly breakfast recipes that are sure to delight. Check ‘em out below and show Dad how much you care by making his morning.

Perfect Pancakes – Using a squeeze bottle filled with pancake batter to spell out DAD? This is one super cute idea! It’s easy to do and such a fun way to show Dad this day is all about him.

Egg-cellent Egg Cups – If you think these breakfast bites look delicious, you’re right. If you think they’re hard to make, you’re wrong. Throw a little black forest ham in a muffin pan, crack an egg in it, bake, and you’re good to go.

Cool Cake – If your Dad loves bacon and beer, (and let’s face it, who doesn’t?), then he’ll love this cake! Vanilla cake mix and frosting, beer, bacon, and a waffle iron come together to create this towering treat.

Wicked Wookiee – Is your Dad is a big fan of Han, Luke, Leia, and Chewie? Freak out he will when you surprise him with this delightful donut.

Mighty Mix – Can’t decide what to cook for Dad? Try making a whole platter! With a hearty mix of smoked salmon, eggs, bacon, prosciutto, English muffins, and more you can’t go wrong!

Breakfast Burrito – Burritos are normally a mix of rice, beans, veggies, guacamole, salsa, and sour cream, and while they can be eaten for breakfast, they’re usually saved for a later meal. However, this wonderful wrap is perfect for breakfast. Eggs, steak, cheese, and hot sauce are the perfect morning combo. We’re sure your Dad will eat it up.

Playful Pizza – This is another type of food that’s usually reserved for a later meal (unless you’ve had a particularly long night). Again, some minor substitutions have turned it into a delicious breakfast feast that your Dad will flip for. He won’t be able to resist a slice!

We hope these delicious breakfast ideas help get your Father’s Day off to a great start. Do you normally cook up something different for your Dad?
