Looking for Father’s Day brunch recipes? I have plenty to choose from!
These recipes cover everything – sweet, salty, savory, and everything in between.
If your dad is a chicken and waffles kind of guy, I have you covered.
If he prefers to choose from a spread of sweets, you’ll find those recipes, too.
Next Father’s Day, cover all your bases by checking out this list of my favorite dad-approved brunch dishes.
30 Best Father’s Day Brunch Recipes and Ideas
1. Pancake Mix Muffins
If you’re looking for a way to put a new spin on an old favorite, try making your muffins with pancake mix instead.
Mix in a little cinnamon, honey, and whatever your favorite toppings are, and you’ll have the lightest, fluffiest, most delicious muffins you’ve ever tried.
2. Chocolate Chip Muffins
You can also make fabulous muffins with Bisquick and a few over-ripe bananas.
That, along with an egg, sugar, vegetable oil, and chocolate chips, makes for very yummy muffins indeed.
3. Chicken and Waffles
Chicken and waffles are a classic brunch meal because they blend the sweetness of breakfast pancakes with the saltiness of fried chicken.
Of all the recipes I’ve found for them, this one is the best.
The thick Belgian waffles are incredible, and the deep-fried chicken tastes like it came straight from your grandma’s table.
4. Coffee Buns
Coffee buns are a traditional Mexican pastry. If you’ve ever been to Mexico, South America, or Asia, you’ve probably seen them.
However, if you’ve not traveled outside the states, you may not know about the deliciousness that is coffee buns.
Coffee buns are light and have soft, buttery insides. They’re covered with a coffee topping that tastes like pure java Heaven.
If your dad likes to dip his morning pastries in coffee, he’ll love these.
5. French Toast Casserole
Which tastes better – blueberry cheesecake or French toast? Actually, don’t answer that.
With this blueberry French toast casserole, you won’t have to choose!
Using traditional French toast ingredients – bread, milk, vanilla extract, maple syrup, and sugar – and blueberries, cream cheese, cornstarch, and butter, this scrumptious casserole is the best of both worlds.
6. Scrambled Eggs and Bacon
If your dad is anything like mine, he probably considers “breakfast” to be bacon and eggs. For this recipe, you’ll cook those two favorites together.
The result is a mixture of light, fluffy eggs and super crispy bacon. It’s a quick, easy, traditional way to do breakfast (or brunch).
7. French Toast
Cracker Barrel makes excellent French toast, so I made this copycat recipe so I could enjoy that same sweet, crispy delicacy whenever I like.
The secret is the sourdough bread. Everything else is pretty standard – vanilla, butter, sugar, milk, and eggs.
Best of all, it takes only 15 minutes to make.
8. Peanut Butter Overnight Oats
These five-ingredient overnight oats are gluten- and dairy-free, vegan- and vegetarian-friendly, and contain all-natural sweeteners.
Best of all, they take about 5 minutes to make, and you make them the night before, so you won’t have to rush to get them done on Father’s Day morning.
9. Blueberry Pancakes
I pull out this blueberry pancake recipe anytime I’m making a list of breakfast or brunch ideas.
If you’re a long-time reader, you’ve probably seen it already.
I can’t help it. These are the best blueberry pancakes I’ve ever had.
They’re soft, airy, and sweet, and the blueberry flavor makes it into every bite.
I will never stop loving this recipe. If you haven’t tried it yet, Father’s Day would be a great time to give it a shot.
10. Breakfast Grilled Cheese
If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a thousand times. There’s never a bad time for grilled cheese.
If you want to make it brunch-specific, throw in some sausage and eggs, and call it a day.
11. Bisquick Breakfast Casserole
If you’re looking for a main course for brunch that’s as healthy as it is tasty, check out this recipe for Bisquick breakfast casserole.
It contains lots of veggies, eggs, sausage, milk, and more. It’s full of vitamins, minerals, and things that are good for you.
Slice up a tomato to serve with it, and you’ll get a fruit serving in there, as well!
12. Coffee Donuts
Moist, fluffy, and just a tiny bit healthier for you than their deep-fried cousins, these baked coffee donuts are mouth-wateringly good.
They’re also quicker and simpler to make.
And they’re not called coffee donuts for nothing!
Each bite is infused with a strong, bold coffee taste, both in the donuts themselves and the coffee glaze.
If dad’s a coffee aficionado, he’ll love these.
13. Dalgona Coffee
While we’re on the subject of coffee, let’s go ahead and talk about how amazing Dalgona coffee is!
It’s the smoothest, creamiest cream-free coffee you’ll ever enjoy.
All you’ll need to make it are four ingredients, five minutes, and a hand mixer or whisk.
If you haven’t tried it yet, run to your kitchen right now and whip some up.
While you have your whisk handy, you may as well whip up a couple of lattes too.
All you’ll need is coffee and milk and maybe a dash of cinnamon for added flavor.
15. Iced Coffee
If your dad’s more of a traditionalist, you might want to make him some iced coffee instead.
With coffee, water, sweetened condensed milk, and ice cubes, you can have this faux-McDonald’s iced coffee ready in 15 minutes or less.
16. Bacon Cheese Frittata
This savory brunch favorite takes about 45 minutes to cook, but it’s one of the best, heartiest recipes on the list.
It’s full of bacon and cheese, but my favorite flavor comes from the scallions. They give it an herby, earthy taste that’s hard to beat.
17. Sweet Potato Frittata
This frittata, too, takes a little under an hour to cook, but unlike the bacon cheese frittata, it’s vegetarian-friendly.
Stuffed with onions, bell peppers, sweet potatoes, spinach, cheese, and plenty of herbs, this is a tasty, filling brunch idea for the dad who loves cheesy, herby dishes.
18. Breakfast Sandwich
I have only four words for you about this sandwich: garlic butter tomato sauce.
Oh. My. Gosh. The bacon, guacamole, eggs, and pepper jack cheese are good too, but that garlic butter tomato sauce is one of the tastiest things you’ll ever experience.
19. Banana Bread
Delightfully moist with the perfect amount of crunch from the walnuts, this banana bread is delicious and only requires eight ingredients to make.
Just don’t be surprised if dad doesn’t want to share.
20. Cheese Buns
Homemade rolls full of multiple cheeses? Where do I sign up?!
These rolls have soft, fluffy insides surrounded by crispy, cheesy outsides. There is no bad here.
Just remember you’re dealing with homemade bread, so be sure to give yourself plenty of time to knead the dough and let it rise.
When you first check out the ingredients list for these Waffle House copycat waffles, it may seem like a lot, but they’re surprisingly easy to make, taking only 20 minutes.
They’re thick and crispy on the outside and fluffy and soft on the inside.
Serve them with maple syrup or any of your other favorite toppings.
22. Avocado Toast
Although there are probably a hundred recipes on making it, there’s no wrong way to make avocado toast.
As long as you can toast bread and mash an avocado, you’re set.
However, if you’re looking for a new way to spice up the flavor a little, this recipe is my favorite.
If you like garlic as much as I do, you’ll probably enjoy it, too.
23. Cinnamon Toast
Requiring only five ingredients and 20 minutes to make, cinnamon toast has never been easier!
All you have to do is mix your salt, butter, sugar, and cinnamon in a bowl, then spread the mixture over the bread.
Bake for about 15 minutes, and they’re ready to eat!
24. Breakfast Pizza
Brunch is the perfect time for breakfast pizza.
Although you can adjust the recipe however you like, as-is, it calls for pizza dough, olive oil, mozzarella and parmesan cheese, cherry tomatoes, bacon, eggs, chives, and parsley.
It takes less than 30 minutes to make.
Thanks to the tomatoes and herbs, it tastes wonderfully fresh and light, not greasy and heavy like pizza sometimes is.
25. Cheesy Bacon and Egg Hash
Ready in only 30 minutes, cheesy bacon and egg hash has everything your dad could want for brunch.
There are potatoes, eggs, bacon, scallions, and lots of cheese.
Of course, hash is a very flexible meal, so you can adjust and tweak the recipe however you want to make it better suit your tastes.
26. Honey Butter Chicken Biscuit Sliders
If you love Whataburger’s chicken biscuits, you’ll go nuts for this copycat recipe.
Most of the work goes into making the honey butter. You can use whatever biscuits you like.
I use Grands’ flaky layers biscuits, and who doesn’t love fried chicken tenders?
Put the two together, slather some honey butter on them, and voila! Flaky, buttery, and honey-sweet Whataburger chicken biscuits!
27. Peanut Butter Pancakes
This recipe combines the warm fluffiness of buttermilk pancakes with the rich nuttiness of peanut butter.
There’s peanut butter in the batter, and you’ll drizzle the pancakes with a peanut butter/maple syrup topping.
They’re a double dose of peanut goodness and a great addition to any brunch.
28. Bacon Egg-In-A-Heart
This is just bacon, eggs, and chives on toast, but the bacon and eggs make a beautiful heart to show your dad just how much you love and appreciate him.
It looks lovely and tastes great.
29. Cinnamon Rolls
Like the blueberry pancakes, these cinnamon rolls are another recipe I often use for breakfast or brunch-related meals.
They’re just so delicious; it’s hard not to add them to the list.
Their crispy outsides and warm, gooey centers are sooooooooo good, and making them with Bisquick is so flipping convenient.
If these aren’t already on your go-to brunch menu, they should be.
30. Cream Cheese Coffee Cake
Okay, I’m not going to lie.
Cream cheese coffee cake takes a little work, but dad will more than appreciate the effort.
Plus, you and he both will be so proud of the result. It’s moist, airy, and has the perfect smooth but crumbly texture.
It’s also buttery and sweet but with the slight tanginess of cream cheese.
Everything about it is incredible, and it tastes great with coffee.
