Let your little ones treat Dad to breakfast in bed!
Today’s the day! It’s time to celebrate the guy who’s always here for us, rain or shine, through thick and thin. Yep, we’re talking about dear old (or young) Dad. From changing diapers to changing the oil, he’s the man we rely on to get things done. In fact, he’s our very own Superhero.
Father’s Day can be pretty busy, with all the visits with Grandpas, Dads, Uncles and bonus parents. There’s sure to be a BBQ to close out his day, so we’re starting our celebration of the big guy early – and that means breakfast. This year we’re getting the younger generation involved, challenging our kiddos to come up with their most spectacular creations. Step aside Chopped Junior Champs, there’s a new kid in town. And here’s what they’re making.
Cheesy eggs-in-a-hole with bacon recipe
Let’s get cracking! We’re starting with a mashup of grilled cheese and the classic bacon and eggs breakfast, making it all a little more fun. This recipe is do-able for all ages, especially if you share the tasks. Let your littles cut out the hole in the bread with their favorite cookie cutter, while your biggies can crack the eggs and do the flipping. We can tell you this: there won’t be one bite left.

Banana cream pie overnight oats recipe

We’re not suggesting pie for breakfast – although we would be totally ok with that… These super-healthy overnight oats have all the flavors of banana cream pie, with none of the guilt. They’re so easy to make, which means any age child can get involved. And the best part? They ‘cook’ themselves overnight, which means less stress in the morning. You in? Get the recipe: womansday.com
