Make This Father’s Day Delicious

It’s the Thought That Counts

Giving Father’s Day gifts and cards is a time-honored tradition celebrated worldwide. However, in my family, our gift to Dad is breakfast in bed.

My husband loves when the kids file into our bedroom with his baked ham-and-cheese baked omelet, bacon and a cold glass of farm-fresh Hiland Dairy Milk. He looks forward to it every year because of the omelet’s light, fluffy texture and the gooey goodness of the melted cheeses. Happy Father’s Day!
