A Father’s Day Breakfast {Recipes}

As I mentioned HEREI made a pretty delicious breakfast for my husband for our first Father’s Day.  I love to bake and cook and try out new recipes.  I’ll definitely be making this one again, hopefully sooner than later.

Biscuits and Gravy

I found this recipe HERE at Foodnetwork.com.


3 cups all-purpose flour

2 Tbsp. sugar (I’m adding a little more next time)

2 1/2 tsp. baking powder

1/2 tsp. baking soda

1/2 tsp. salt

1/2 cup vegetable shortening

1 cup buttermilk

1/4 cup melted unsalted butter

Milk gravy (recipe follows, which I tweaked a bit)


Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.  In a medium bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt.  Cut in the shortening with a fork until it looks like cornmeal.  Add the buttermilk, a little at a time, stirring constantly until well mixed.

Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface.  Knead lightly 2 or 3 times.  Roll out the dough with a floured rolling pin to 1/2-inch thickness.  Cut with a 2-inch cutter. (Can be any size or thickness you like)

Place the biscuits in a greased iron skillet (I used shortening).  Gently press down top of biscuits.  Brush the biscuits with half the melted butter…(cont. on photo)

Milk Gravy


Leftover sausage grease

1/8 cup bacon grease (I didn’t measure this out, just used what was left in pan)

1/4 cup all purpose flour

2 cups warm milk (I’ll add more next time for a creamier gravy)

1/4 tsp. salt

1/4 tsp. pepper

2 Tbsp. melted butter


Breakfast Potatoes


Potatoes (amount depends on # of servings)

Red and green bell peppers, chopped (I used 1/2 of each)

Yellow onion, chopped (Any amount you prefer)


Cayenne Pepper

Garlic powder

Salt & Pepper


Once you’ve added and seasoned the potatoes, do not stir (this will mash them), instead use a spatula and after about 5 minutes, flip them over.  Continue to do this until they’re at desired tenderness.

Creamy Scrambled Cheese Eggs


Eggs (amount depends on # of servings.  I used 5 medium eggs)

1 generous Tbsp. of sour cream

1 Tbsp. water

Shredded Cheddar Cheese (any amount desired.  I used a small handful)

Salt & Pepper


Melt 1-2 Tbsp. butter in a pan.  Pour egg mixture into pan, on low/medium heat and stir occasionally.  Once eggs are about halfway done, sprinkle in the shredded cheese and continue to stir until cooked to your liking.

There you have it!  A really delicious breakfast that took me about 1 1/2 hours to make (by myself)…and it was my 1st time making all 3 of these dishes.
