Egg-free Friendly Father’s Day Breakfast

| June 14, 2013 | 10 Comments

Before we had children, my husband and I brunched weekly.  Eggs are definitely my guy’s favourite food.  Imagine his complete dismay when our youngest child was born with a severe egg allergy.  No more eggs in the house.  At all.  This has of course turned me into a most creative breakfast maker!  I always felt it was important that my kids got to try all types of food and never had to live without just because of their allergies.  I have tried lots of different recipes over the years, and have perfected it to the point that we almost don’t miss the eggs.  Almost ;-).  For Father’s Day this year, here is what is on the menu – all egg and nut free…


  • Egg-free Waffles with maple-syrup flavoured whipping cream
  • Fresh berries with Greek yogurt
  • Piping-hot Starbucks house blend coffee
  • Lots of love

I use the waffle recipe found in Rosemarie Emro’s Bakin’ Without Eggs – this book has been my lifesaver for baking for the last 10 years.  The waffles are terrific every time!  To save time in the morning, I often make the batter the night before and keep it in the fridge overnight.  For the whipped cream, I use the fabulous culinary whipper  that my husband bought me for my birthday.  You fill the canister with real whipping cream, add in pure maple syrup, shake it and dispense – pure yumminess on a plate in an instant.  You can add some to the coffee and berries too, if so inclined.

This is such a yummy breakfast (preferably served in bed) that he won’t even miss the eggs.

About the Author ()

I am an active mother of two fabulous kids that make me smile every day. I love to cook old favourites and try out new recipes and never let my kids’ nut and egg allergy get in the way! I am forever dragging my husband all over town to try out the latest and greatest new spots to eat but for the most part I think he’s a willing participant. I would call myself a Foodie but then you would think I was pretentious, so I won't go there. I am an avid reader, pretty much anything I can get my hands on, anytime I can squeeze it in. (Yes that was me you saw reading while I was running on the treadmill at the gym). I love to write and share all my great finds whenever I can! Let’s eat! Author's website.

    This is perfect! I have a house full of little girls upstairs right now, who are bleary eyed after a night of “sleep over” and one child has an egg allergy. I was just looking up things to make for breakfast and found your waffle recipe. Thanks!Top 3 Places in Europe to Take TeenagersTop 3 Places in Europe to Take Teenagers
