Breakfast on Father's Day

Let take a break from my Korea tour and talk about the breakfast on Father's Day. I am a bit concerned of this title may give my readers a wrong perception that would be a very special breakfast. In fact, it was actually quite a special breakfast for my family. Why? It was my first time doing western breakfast, and it was a Sunday morning. We normally sleep in quite late on Sunday morning, and go out to have brunch, or have home cook lunch. Since last Sunday was the Father's Day, I had the mojo to give my husband and my girls a surprise. Somemore the weather was so hot and so hazy, it was a better idea to stay indoor.
Tadaa.. pan fried  sausages and not very smooth heart shape fried egg. Too bad, I didn't have bread, bake beans and veggie to make it more perfect. Luckily, I had a bunch of bananas as the replacement. You may be cooking this or eating this type of breakfast everyday.  Mind you, I did this for the very first time in my life. By the way, I made all these with my HappyCall pan. Now I see the advantage of using HCP was frying 2 eggs and 4 sausages at one time with only a bit of margarine, and I didn't need to wipe the stove and kitchen afterwards. Perhaps, I still didn't do any fancy cooking with my HCP, I didn't find washing it troublesome, except it was a bit heavy to handle. My husband and my girls enjoyed the breakfast, and I shall do this more in future.
As usual, the girls presented their papa with their own hand made Father's Day cards

  1. You should cook more of those Western breaky for your kids! I still vividly remember how we loved my mum's Western style breaky even if sometimes she actually made it for dinner! We would go 'yay~!' whenever she said it's Western tonight!!! :D

  7. Your girls are sweet expressing their great thoughts to their Daddy.

    Strangely, the Australian don't celebrate Father's day in June and the Aussie Father's day is in September :D

  12. I use Tefal non stick pan and need not apply margarine at all when frying egg. Love it max that we can have oil-less egg :)

  13. Hi Sheoh, your girl are so cute. The card is very nice and creative idea.

    I yet to get the HCP, still thinking to buy or not. You can use it to make nutella french toast, your girl sure love it.
    Spread nutella on the bread, sandwich together. Dip the bread in beaten egg then pan fry it with your HCP. Serve hot and can drizzle some honey on top. Enjoy!

    Simple breakfast but cook with motherly love, it sure taste good.
    Have a nice day.

  24. Same here, I've never prepared Western breakfast for my family too. Maybe because I don't allow Chloe to eat sausages and I'm too lazy to cook in the morning haha... but it's good to have something different for a change, right? I bet the girls loved your special breakfast :)

  28. What a good way of spending time with the family and on father's day too. Im sure your hubby appreciate it , even if it's a simple breakfast. Father day passed me by without any funfare. all alone. just a couple of sms from my daughter ,my son and one daughter in law. nothing on fb at all. i guess out of sight out of mind is true in my case.
