Happy Friday All!
Did I mention that my parents are visiting. Squee!
I haven't met my parents since 2 years and my sister and brother since 8. I cannot fly around yet, so I have to depend on others visiting. Every time someone visits, the days are filled with non stop smiles. Families in India are usually very close-knit. Sometimes so overly close, that everyone has to know everything about everybody. It might seem that the word privacy does not exist in any dictionary. But that is how the amazing support system, that can be depended on at any time, is created. :)
Here are some Breakfast/brunch ideas for Father's Day! Give your special Dad a special hug and some awesome food!
Tried and tested by many.
Make Baked French Toasts.
Crusted with Coconut...
Topped with Blueberry Crisp
Stove Top French Toasts
Spiced Apple Cake, or use any other fruit in this not too sweet, spiced Cake.
Which is what My dad would love. We all grew up eating grain and Veggie hash type things called Upma or Poha, Veggie or Lentil stuffed paratha flat breads and chickpea flour Chilla/Puda/Pudla. I dont remember a single breakfast that was all sweet. There would be some leftover dessert or Halwa loaded with nuts, but that would be the after side to finish of the breakfast.
No wonder, my Dad makes a face when I mention eating pancakes for breakfast. I sent some multi-grain pancake mix to Mom a few years back and she makes savory pancakes with it.:)
Savory Oats Poha with veggies GF
Chilla - Chickpea flour Omelettes GF
Or these fat mini-Omelettes filled with grated Cauliflower and cheese.
Stuffed French Toasts. Samosa Toasts. Really you cant go wrong with Samosa potatoes.
Soy-free Frittata with Almond Feta GF. No Tofu in this awesome Frittata
Hearty Yam and White Bean Hash.
Stuffed Naan! or Mom's Aloo Paratha
Planning a Lunch?.. then make this easy but delicious Cauliflower Steak with mushroom gravy.
Or make some meat-less burgers, also tried, tested and featured in a bunch of mags, from this Memorial Day Burger round up.
Happy Father's day to all Dads.
