Treat Dad to a mighty meaty brunch.
This Father's Day, let's wake up Dad with some ultra-satisfying brunch dishes. The kind of stick-to-his-ribs meal that will power him through a day of playing with the kiddos. Yes, this summer celebration of Pops usually centers around bourbon and barbecue, but why not mix it up and serve some of these top-rated dishes including a few that were named as a tribute to dear-old dad?
Start with Something Savory
Mention that winning combo of crispy bacon and eggs, gravy smothered biscuits and cheesy casseroles and mouths are going to start watering. These popular preparations get bonus points for being easy enough for the little ones to pitch in and make with Mom's help.
With this eggy breakfast casserole, steamed broccoli mixes it up with bread cubes, diced tomatoes, ham, pepperjack cheese, and a little cream.
A hearty breakfast casserole with pork sausage, hashbrowns, shredded Mexican cheeses and a biscuit-based breading.

Finish with Something Sweet
After polishing off that savory dish, why not follow up with a little something sweet? Like homemade toppings on a steamy stack of pancakes. Yum! A two-course approach to brunch might seem a little bit over the top, but Dad deserves special treatment on his Big Day.
"These pancakes are wonderful," says PK01. "They almost have a hint of french toast taste to them. They are very tender and light."
"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."
"These mancakes have beer and bacon mixed in," says AllieGeekPi. "The perfect breakfast for dads on their special day."
A quick soda bread with raisins and buttermilk. "Grandpa McAndrew must've been one heck of a guy, because this is one heck of a good Irish Soda Bread," raves Jillian.
A French toast sandwich with eggs and bacon in the center served with maple syrup and a sprinkle of powdered sugar. "The best way to eat french toast and your eggs and bacon," rafes lauriedotson.
