Because nothing says, “I love you, Dad” better than a home-cooked meal. Especially one made with pork.

Father’s Day Breakfast and Brunch Recipes:

Dad will sprint out of bed when he gets a whiff of these Espresso-Maple Pulled Pork and Egg Breakfast Burritos [1] from Pork, Knife & Spoon.

If you like lazing around in your pajamas on Sunday mornings, then take a cue from The Pajama Chef and make this deliciously simple Sausage, Apple and Egg Casserole [2].

Sweeten Dad’s day with these Buttermilk Pancake Cupcakes with Maple Frosting and Bacon [3] from Created by Diane. (pictured above)

How about a breakfast panini of Salami, Prosciutto and Provolone [4] from Panini Happy? Mangia! (pictured below)


Pancakes are the quintessential Sunday breakfast with Dad. So get flippin’ with Serious Eats’ Maple Bacon Pancakes [5].

Think breakfast biscuits can’t get better? They just did: Bacon and Sweet Potato Biscuits with Smoky Honey Butter [6].

Even the manliest of dads will swoon at the sight of behemoth Chile Cheddar Bacon Waffles [7] from Cooking with Amy. (pictured below)


Father’s Day Lunch and Dinner Recipes:

Any dad would appreciate biting into this muscular Italian Sausage and Peppers Sandwich [8], which tastes best when eaten during a baseball game. Just sayin’.

Made with marinated pork tenderloin, these Quick and Easy Pineapple and Pork Tacos [9] from Whole Foods, are simply luscious.

For the bacon-loving dad, try this manly Bacon-Wrapped Pork Tenderloin with Texas Caviar [10] from Porkbeinspired.com.

Celebrate summertime peaches with this easy-yet-elegant Skinless, Boneless Pork Chops with Rosemary Peaches [11] recipe from Food Blogga. (pictured below)


A mammoth plate of spicy, porky, cheesy Ultimate Chipotle Pork Nachos [12] from Just a Taste will show dad just how much you love him.

A crunch, crunch, crunchy Mexican pork and bean tostada [13] from Porkbeinspired.com won’t disappoint.

Heat up Dad’s day with Grilled Pork Chops with Firecracker Salsa [14], made with sweet pineapple and fiery habanero chilies from Porkbeinspired.com.

Is your dad a burger guy? Make him Richard Blais’s famous Cuban Pork Burger [15] piled high with tangy pickles, spicy Mojo sauce, crispy bacon and creamy Swiss. Burgers never looked (or tasted) so good. (pictured below)


Father’s Day Dessert Recipes:

How about wrapping up  a box of this chunky Peanut Butter Maple Bacon Fudge [16] to leave on Dad’s nightstand for a midnight snack?

Bacon Ice Cream. [17] That’s all I need to say.

Does your dad prefer cake or doughnuts? He can have them both with these ingenious Maple Bacon Cake Doughnuts [18] from A Cozy Kitchen.

Dads never tire of cookies, especially when they’re studded with dark chocolate chips and bits of crispy bacon. So here’s a recipe for Chocolate Chip-Bacon-Pecan Cookies [16]. (pictured below)

What’s more American than an apple pie? One with bacon in it: Dad will love this all-American Apple-Bacon Pie with Gingersnap Crust [19] from A Tasting Table.
