Father’s Day Breakfast Ideas With Bacon!

My husband like most dad’s loves breakfast in bed on Father’s Day. I’ve noticed over the last year his growing obsession with things made with bacon. This Father’s Day I decided to mix it up a little bit. Here’s a sneak peak at what we will be making him in the morning. Bacon pancakes and a bacon bowl.

Bacon Pancakes


2 cups Bisquick
2 eggs
1 cup milk
1 lb of bacon cooked {pat grease off with paper towel}


Mix bisquick, eggs, and milk in bowl until smooth, put aside. Spray your skillet with pam or a little olive oil. Turn on burner to medium heat. Pour bisquick mix on skillet then take bacon {already cooked} and place it in center of pancake mix, push down gently with fork.

When pancake has bubbles that pop flip to cook other side. Cook for about 1 minute on the other side {or until lightly brown}. Walla, that easy! Serve with powdered sugar or your dad’s favorite syrup.{Makes about 13 pancakes}

Bacon Bowl

You will need:

Bacon {7 pieces does 1 bowl}
Glass pyrex {or some kind of oven safe bowl}
Cookie sheet, must have lip along all edges {this will hold in all the grease as bacon cooks}
Metal cooling rack {one that can handle the oven}


Preheat oven to 350º F. Cut 6 pieces of bacon in half. Turn pyrex bowl upside down. Lay them over the top rotating so  that they over lap each other a little. Once the bowl is covered, take the last {not cut} piece of bacon and wrap it along the bottom. {this will help hold it all together}. Use toothpicks to “clip” the bacon together so it won’t move when it’s cooking.

As you can see I put my pyrex dish on top of a metal cooling rack. Then the rack sits right in side of the cookie sheet. Cook at 350º F for 30-40 minutes {really this depends on how your oven cooks}.

Once the bacon is fully cooked let it cool for about 5 minutes. Use the toothpicks to pull it off your pyrex, this helps to not burn yourself! Once you turn your bacon bowl the right direction twist the toothpicks to loosen then pull them out.  {if you don’t twist them they can break off in the bacon}

Fill the bowl with your dad {or husband’s} favorite fruit or pour chocolate in it, don’t be afraid to be creative! I poured raspberry syrup on the plate and then filled the bowl with strawberries and sprinkled edible heart shaped glitter over it.

Ingredients: Bacon
Meal Type: Father's Day
