  Father’s Day excitement: Turn brunch into a design-your-own waffle bar.

We adapted this idea from Peach Valley Cafe, which has a variety of tasty waffles on the menu.

Make your favorite waffles (we go for whole grain) and decide on your toppings, sweet or savory:

SAVORY WAFFLE TOPPINGS

  • Chopped fresh herbs (basil, chives, dill, parsley)
  • Chopped green onions (scallions)
  • Grilled vegetable strips
  • Hot sauce
  • Salsa
  • Sautéed cherry tomatoes
  • Sour cream, Greek yogurt or crème fraîche
  •  

    PROTEIN TOPPINGS FOR SAVORY WAFFLES

  • Bacon
  • Cheese: crumbled blue cheese or goat cheese, shredded Cheddar or mozzarella
  • Chicken/turkey
  • Chili
  • Eggs: fried, hard cooked/sliced, poached, scrambled
  • Grilled shrimp
  • Ham
  •  

    SWEET TOPPINGS

  • Candies: chocolate chips, mini marshmallows, M&Ms, Reese’s Pieces, toffee bits
  • Cottage cheese flavored with cinnamon sugar
  • Crème fraîche, mascarpone, whipped cream
  • Crumbled Oreos or chocolate wafer cookies
  • Cooked fruit: cinnamon apple slices, peaches, chopped oranges
  • Dried fruit: blueberries, cherries, cranberries
  • Fresh fruit: berries
  • Ice cream
  • Marinated fruit: fresh or dried fruit marinated in Grand Marnier or other orange liqueur
  • Nuts: almonds, pecans, pistachios, walnuts
