Though there may be no grill involved, a special breakfast or brunch is sure to start Father’s Day on a happy note.

An extra 1-2 accompaniments will round out this meal, such as a side of fresh fruit (another opportunity for the Fruit Rainbow!), bacon, Sausage Patties, Cinnamon Toast, or Cornbread Muffins. And don’t forget about a hot cup (or cold brew!) of coffee. A dash of Homemade Vanilla Syrup or French Vanilla Creamer is a fun touch.

 

If a DIY food-related gift is more your style (or you’d simply like to add in something extra!) consider a jar of Homemade Hot Honey or Strawberry Jam!
