7 Breakfast in Bed Recipes for Father’s Day

For those of you who haven’t been to Home Depot lately, Father’s Day is right around the corner. When your father/grandfather/sugar daddy wakes up this Sunday, we want to give you all the necessary tools to make him feel loved. No, we’re not talking about a set of golf clubs or a new drill bit, because believe it or not some dads wouldn’t know what to do with a 5-iron if they were hit over the head with it. We’re talking cheese! And not just cheese, we’re talking seven fantastically cheesy breakfast recipes to bring your father of choice before he even gets out of bed.

Peppered Pear and Goat Cheese Scones


Just like a good cheese plate, these scones have the perfect balance of flavors. Sweet pears, creamy goat cheese, and spicy black pepper come together to achieve breakfast nirvana with these scrumptious baked goods. For an extra level of flavor, try with your favorite pepper jelly!

Rustic Breakfast Sandwich


I mean come on, just look at that runny yolk. Bring this breakfast sandy to your Dad and he’ll feel like a little kid again. Crunchy sourdough, fresh manchego, salty prosciutto—what doesn’t this thing have!

Gruyère, Mushroom, Leek, and Bacon Quiche


If there was ever a quiche to give as an appreciation gift, this one would be it. Packed with cheesy Gruyère goodness, this bad boy is not only delicious but easy to make. Oh yeah, and did we mention there’s BACON in it?

Mixed Berry French Chèvre Smoothie


Every meal needs an excellent drink to go alongside it, and this fresh goat cheese and berry smoothie is just that! Creamy chèvre is such an ingenious substitution for yogurt; it’ll make you wonder why you didn’t try it sooner!

Feta Buckwheat Pancakes

Putting a new spin on a classic breakfast staple, these flapjacks will fill Papa Bear up with their savory goodness. Make sure to make a few stacks for yourself, because once you see Dad digging into these guys, you’ll want a few for yourself!

Cinnamon Toast Crunch Breakfast Grilled Cheese


Drawing inspiration from a cereal superstar, this sandwich will make Pop feel like he’s a kid again. The masterful team of toasted cinnamon raisin bread, gooey canela cheese, and crisp apples hit parts of your pallet that you didn’t even know existed. Plus, grilled cheese for breakfast? Score!

Baked Eggs with Goat Cheese, Chanterelles, and Leeks


If you want to go a bit of a fancier route, try these Baked Eggs with Goat Cheese, Chanterelles, and Leeks. Cooked in individual ramekins, these eggs are sophisticated, refined, and—most importantly—absolutely irresistible.
