Dad-Worthy Father's Day Breakfast Recipes
The Master Hash
This essential hash is the perfect main event at the Father's Day brunch table. With hearty veggies, sauces, and ingredients, Dad is sure to be thrilled!
Be-Still-My-Heart Breakfast Pizza
As delicious as cold, last-night's pizza can be for breakfast, some occasions call for a little something extra. Perfectly cooked eggs, tender heart-shaped dough with a crisp bottom, and traditional hot Italian sausage make the cutest morning pizza. Add whatever extra toppings you, or whomever you're making this for, love. Just make sure not to crack the egg into the bacon heart, because it won't cook.
Creamy Brioche and Egg Bake
This stand alone breakfast dish is an upgrade from the usual breakfast casserole. Baking eggs in brioche and heavy cream allows for perfectly set, soft, and runny eggs. Fresh herbs and rich egg and meaty sausage flavors round out this bake and give it irresistable texture. Ask for brioche at your local grocery store or bakery and they are sure to have it.
Mexican Chorizo Hash
This breakfast skillet gets heat from spicy Mexican chorizo. Don't stir the potatoes too much as they cook so they crisp in the pan.
Jerk Pork Belly with Quail Egg and Stewed Fava Beans
This hearty dish isn't a breakfast for the faint of heart. With jerk pork and quail eggs, it's sure to be a memorable morning dish.
Breakfast Biscuit Sandwiches
A giant step up from a fast-food breakfast sandwich, this biscuit is topped with eggs, cheese and country ham, jam optional. These tender biscuits have a salty edge. If you prefer, decrease the amount of salt in the recipe to 1 1/2 tablespoons.
Associate Food Editor Mary Allen Perry likes the make-ahead ease of this breakfast casserole recipe. Prepare the recipe, without baking, and refrigerate overnight. Let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes; bake as directed. Tip: Make the Cheese Sauce before scrambling the eggs so the sauce will be ready to add at the proper time.
Egg Sandwich with Mustard Greens and Avocado
"I usually make these sandwiches on days when there isn't enough time to sit down for a proper breakfast," says Sera Pelle, who wraps them in parchment paper for her kids to eat on the go.
Bacon and Egg Sandwiches with Caramelized Onions and Arugula
This upscale twist on the traditional breakfast sandwich features sweet, tender caramelized onion and peppery arugula. A fresh fruit salad would be a good accompaniment.
Oatmeal Pancakes with Wild Blueberry Sauce
Stack these pancakes high for a towering breakfast that's sure to be amazing. Topped with a wild blueberry sauce, these pancakes celebrate the best flavors of the season.
Making the bacon is a three-step process: Cure, smoke, and roast. The process takes about 6-8 days, but the end result is totally worth it.
Hot Chicken-and-Waffle Sandwiches with Chive Cream

Tex-Mex Hash Brown Casserole
This simple skillet supper uses shredded potatoes as a base. The potato mixture cooks on the stove top first to get it browned and crisp on the bottom.
Hash Brown Breakfast Casserole
Make a hearty breakfast casserole with hot pork sausage, cubed hash browns, eggs and shredded cheese. Top with picante sauce and sour cream for Tex-Mex flair.
Tex-Mex Breakfast Bake
This flavor-packed take on breakfast casserole is a great way to use up leftover Texas toast or garlic bread. Rich, indulgent, and spicy, its gooeyness is perfectly complimented by the tang from the crema, which can be found in a Latin market. Play around with frozen toast flavors to spice things up, or serve it as breakfast for dinner.
Breakfast Meatballs and Spud-Ghetti
Kind of like breakfast for dinner, but still breakfast.
Golden Beet-and-Potato Breakfast Bake
Beets add color and flavor to hash browns in this tasty one-pan breakfast. Squeeze out as much liquid as possible from the beets and the potatoes so they crisp up in the pan.
Szechuan-Style Breakfast Biscuits
This is a riff on the classic sausage biscuit, China style. Or as I call it in the restaurant, “This Little Piggy Went to China.” I slather a cheddar-scallion biscuit with hoisin mayo (because it makes everything better), top it with a nice big Szechuan sausage patty, add a fried egg, and drown the whole thing in Szechuan Chile Sauce that’s been sweetened with a little maple syrup (you know, for breakfast). Then I finish it off with some blackberries to bring that bright acidity. Don’t be shy about picking this guy up to eat it, but a knife and fork can be useful.

Hot Chicken and Doffles
Winner, winner, hot chicken doffle. If these glorious waffle-doughnut hybrid chicken sandwiches don’t peel you out of bed in the morning, we probably can’t help you. Chicken cutlets are dunked in hot sauce-laced buttermilk, doused in an oil bath to master the coveted crisp-crunchy skin, and then glossed with spicy melted butter. The heat of the chicken is quelled by the glazed doughnuts, which helps master the crave-worthy sweet-salty-spicy breakfast alchemy we all aspire to. Warning: A fork and knife (or a bib, at the very least) are required to tackle this monster of a sandwich.
