Father’s Day Breakfasts The Kids Can Help Cook + A FREE GIFT!

by Katrina - The Organised Housewife

HEAPS of Fathers’ Day breakfast ideas (that the kids can help make!) so Dad can start his Father’s Day off with a full belly and a big smile!

On Fathers’ Day my kids always want to make their dad feel loved and special, so the day generally starts with a yummy Father’s Day breakfast – made by the kids! Hubby’s favourite breaky is pancakes with blueberries and raspberries, followed up with a flavoured Nesquik milk. Obviously all dads are different, so I thought I’d create this blog of tasty breakfast options so that your kids (with a little help from you) can show that significant and loveable man in your lives just how much he means to them. Happy cooking!

When All Else Fails, Keep It Simple

Love can come in the simplest of dishes, and sometimes a roughly made piece of Vegemite toast accompanied by a cold tea that’s been made with love, says so much more than a bacon stack.

AVOCADO TOAST – If you’re feeling particularly fancy you could add a sprinkle of feta, a dash of lemon or a a little crushed salt to Dad’s avocado toast.

VEGEMITE SCROLL – Need something more than just your average slice of Vegemite toast? Try my Vegemite Scroll recipe which has endless variations from spinach and feta to chicken and sweet chilli.

BLISS BALLS – If Dad is not a big breakfast fan, a bliss ball rolled with love teamed with a simple cuppa could be all that’s needed to make his morning memorable. Bliss balls are also a great recipe for the kids because they generally require no cooking and can be prepared in advance.
