Father’s Day is coming up and what better way to celebrate than surprising your favorite father with delicious, homemade treats perfect for the occasion. I’ve compiled nine of my favorite recipes, both sweet and savory, that will have you covered this Father’s Day from breakfast to dessert.

Maple Bacon Cheddar Mug Muffin

Are you looking for a quick, easy, Father’s Day breakfast? This one can be prepared and cooked entirely in a mug! My husband Kevin’s Maple Bacon Cheddar Mug Muffin. This yummy, savory muffin is the perfect way to start your Father’s Day.

Croque Monsieur Savory Bread Pudding

My Croque Monsieur Savory Bread Pudding is a new spin on classic bread pudding. The ham and cheese flavor is great with the soft bread pudding and is a lovely, fancy addition to your Father’s Day brunch that is incredibly easy to make.

Cinnabon Cinnamon Rolls

My Cinnabon Cinnamon Rolls recipe is a perfect sweet treat for Father’s Day. They’re just like the ones you can get at the mall or airport — just without the crowds! They are a bit of a labor of love, but dad is worth it, right? And just because something takes a little bit of time, that doesn’t mean it’s difficult. In fact, they’re so easy that one of our own Bigger Bolder Baking team members makes them often!

Best-Ever Chocolate Chip Cookies

Want a simple, delicious dessert for Father’s Day? Look no further than my Best-Ever Chocolate Chip Cookies. These cookies are crispy and golden on the outside, sweet and gooey in the middle, and packed with chocolate chunks. I dare you to name a better way to celebrate Father’s Day than with the best chocolate chip cookie ever!

Bacon & Cheddar Cornmeal Waffles

These Bacon & Cheddar Cornmeal Waffles may look like waffles but they taste like yummy cornbread. Packed with bacon and cheese flavor, these are a bold spin on waffles that are sure to impress any father this Father’s Day.

Toaster Oven Breakfast Tart

Don’t have access to an oven? No problem! My Toaster Oven Breakfast Tart can be baked in a toaster oven or a conventional oven. This flaky, savory breakfast is so sophisticated that you’d never know how easy it is to make. I topped mine with eggs, bacon, cheese, and spinach but feel free to add whatever toppings your father loves.

Loaded Baked Potato Bread

This is not your average potato bread. My Loaded Baked Potato Bread combines the best parts of potato bread with the best parts of a loaded baked potato. It’s chewy, cheesy, bacony, rich, and absolutely delicious. Also, there’s no yeast so you can bake it off right away without letting it rise which makes it super easy.

Homemade Dunkin Donuts

If you are lucky enough to live near a Dunkin’ Donuts, you probably know they make the most delicious donuts. They’re soft, sweet, and glazed to perfection. Luckily, you won’t have to wait in a long line to get your father a donut this Father’s Day because with my recipe, you can make Dunkin Donuts’ Chocolate Glazed Donuts at home. They taste just like the Dunkin’ classic but better because you can make them fresh whenever you want them.

Pulled Pork Pancakes

Want a super bold breakfast for Father’s Day? My Pulled Pork Pancakes With Whiskey Maple Sauce should do the trick. Made from my Best-Ever Buttermilk Pancake recipe sandwiched between deliciously-seasoned pulled pork and dripping in a sweet and tangy whiskey maple sauce, this is a very adventurous Father’s Day meal!
