As the saying goes “Eat Breakfast like a King” - so what better way to start Father’s Day than with a tasty family breakfast and show your Dad he’s going to be “King” for the day! Simply pick your Dad’s favourite cuisine and the opportunities are endless!
Impress your Dad with the lightest, fluffiest American style pancakes garnished with his favourite topping.
In the first mixing bowl simply add 125ml self-raising flour, 150ml milk and 3x egg yolks and mix to a smooth batter. In a separate bowl whisk 3x egg whites to stiff peaks with a touch of salt. Gently combine the two mixtures, ensuring you keep as much air in the mixture as possible before gently frying generous spoonfuls over a medium heat. These delicious pancakes can be served with lashings of maple syrup, crispy bacon or even some fresh summer berries and crème fresh.
The suitably indulgent but no-cook option is the French theme. Who can resist a selection of pastries, croissants and brioche, generously spread with ‘real’ butter and complimented with an assortment of your favourite jams? Serve with a big mug of hot chocolate or your favourite blend of coffee to set your Dad up for a day of celebrations.
If a full English breakfast is your Dad’s favourite, but the prospect of an early start to prepare it fills you with dread, why not plan ahead and prepare your slow cooker the night before – just simply add toast in the morning! Placing 4 mugs/ narrow dishes in the centre of your slow cooker and fill one with baked beans, one with chopped tomatoes, one with quartered chestnut mushrooms and the final with 4 whisked eggs and a dash of butter. Stand 8 sausages up around the edge of the slow cooker, fill any gaps with 8 gently rolled up rashers of bacon. Cook on high for approximately 3.5 hours (the slow cooker can keep warm until you’re ready to wake!) and serve with toast and a big mug of tea/ coffee.
Alternatively, if your Dad would prefer a glass of crisp organic apple juice to go with his muesli and date and walnut toast, or if you’re not going to be able to see your Dad on Fathers Date then treat him to our Organic Breakfast Crate hamper to send your best wishes,
