It ticks all the boxes a man wants in a meal – tasty, includes butter, spicy and hot & filling, and for once it’s not a take-away curry!
In fact it’s a good way to start the day for the rest of the family too, though you might want to skip the spices for young kids, and Mums you may want to have less butter or just one egg women usually have lower calorie needs than men.
Now all you need is some homemade cards and permission for him to choose what goes on the telly this afternoon and he’ll be a happy Daddy!
Father’s Day is pretty laid back in our house since it falls on a Sunday and week days during term time are busy enough. Sunday’s are for chilling in James’ mind, and I have to say I agree with him since even Saturday’s are filled with gymnastics classes and a family swimming outing most weekends.
My Dad lives in Jersey but my step-Dad is just down the road so he’ll definitely be presented with a card and some homemade chocolate goodies (not healthy, but he loves them!).

How do you like spend Father’s Day? And to all you single Mums who are playing both Mum and Dad?
Hats off to you and treat yourself to this special breakfast instead!
100g plain yogurt
1 large garlic clove, crushed
1 heaped tsp. butter
1 tsp. dried or fresh parsley
1/2 teaspoon paprika
a pinch of cayenne
a pinch of salt
mixed grilled peppers or tomatoes, to serve
Stir the yogurt and garlic together and spread over a plate (you’ll put the egg on top later). Set aside.
Poach the eggs. Go fancy and use a pot of water if you like. Or a microwave poacher if you’re more like me in the kitchen.
Meanwhile put butter in a small dish with the parsley, paprika, cayenne & salt, microwave until melted & bubbling.
Put egg on top of yoghurt, drizzle over melted butter mix.
I like to serve with roast peppers & tomatoes but spinach, mushrooms, or quite frankly any veg will do!
