I hope everyone had a wonderful Father’s Day yesterday. I didn’t get to see my dad, he lives in Puerto Rico, but I got to spend the day with my other two favorite dads: my husband and my father in law. Father’s Day is always a very relaxing day for everyone involved, especially for me since I’m doing all the “cooking”. 🙂
I love serving brunch for any type of celebration. To me, brunch can be very simple and elegant at the same time. My recipe for serving brunch is to have one “main dish”, fresh fruit or fresh vegetables, something sweet and something salty. Since we are in the middle of watermelon season, I knew they had to be in our menu. Along with pineapples and cantelopes, summer fruit has been amazing this year.
The main dish was Dad’s favorite: Egg Casserole. I love the short list of ingredients and the fact that it “cooks itself” in the oven. Win Win. I made a couple of changes to the recipe. I only add half the sausage and half the potato rounds. Also, I brown fresh mushrooms with the sausage instead of using canned mushrooms. We can’t have brunch without dad’s other favorite, the cinnamon rolls.
After filling up our bellies, it was time for a nap. Then it was time for swimming, feeding the chickens and the fishes. Father’s day was a success, both dads seemed to enjoy their day of eating and relaxing!
How did you spend Father’s Day?
Do you have a special recipe just for Dad?
