Fortunately I know dad, because I am a dad. And I know that nothing makes me happier than a belly full of (fill-in-the-blank). Seriously, happiness for me is when someone else lovingly cooks what I crave. It’s the only day of the year (aside from Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year’s, July 4th, Halloween and my birthday) that I should be allowed to eat anything I want. Therefore I’m here to give you a hand on what dad wants on his day.
The secret to my first recipe is to combine the best of all recipes and ingredients on his favorite list into one: Chocolate French Toast Bacon Paninis. If you’re worried about the calorie count, then you should be. I don’t know it. I don’t want to know it. And trust me, dad doesn’t want to know it either. Instead just make it by cooking your favorite French toast recipe and use that as the bread for a chocolate spread and cooked bacon Panini. The secret is to have a fantastic Panini maker (like IMUSA’s) that has a knob that controls the height of your panini. This way the sandwich doesn’t get smushed. Now watch your father’s/husband’s eyes fill with excitement when you serve this masterful piece of art work after he wakes up.
But I won’t leave you hanging with the heart-kicker Panini. If dad needs a break on his day without breaking his diet, then my egg-white quesadilla is the right dish to rise and dine with. Make his egg white scrambled eggs just like he would like them (I love tomatoes, feta and spinach in mine). Then place some shredded cheese on a tortilla on heated non-stick comal (yeah, IMUSA’s got one of those too). Once the cheese begins to melt, add the scrambled eggs and fold it like a book. Cut it in wedges, serve with salsa and dad won’t even know it’s a healthy breakfast.
No matter which dish you prepare, he’ll love it. And he’ll know that you love him too. Because not only did you take care of breakfast…you have to wash the dishes too!
Happy Father’s Day!
