Start his Sunday with protein-packed pancakes – Kodiak Cakes Power Cakes Flapjack & Waffle Mix are a Team Boxed favorite, with 14g of protein in every pancake. Whether he prefers his pancakes classic (served with crispy bacon and maple syrup) or try something summery, topped with Dole Pineapple Chunks and a drizzle of agave, our big box of pancake mix means he can wake up to pancakes every weekend.
Crispy Crunchy Noodle Cakes

These make the perfect Father’s Day brunch. Cook a pack of ramen noodles (we like Nongshim Chapagetti). Drain, stir through half a can of Libby’s Whole Kernel Sweet Corn and some sliced shallots. Add 1 egg, salt and pepper and mix together. Cook 2 Tablespoons of mixture over medium heat for 2 minutes on one side, then flip and cook another 2 minutes, pressing down to get the ramen noodles nice and crispy. Serve with Sriracha.
Red Wine Brownies

We thought brownies were impossible to beat, but then we tried this spiked brownie recipe by Broma Bakery. Rich and fudgy inside, with a perfectly crackly top, and a hint of luscious red wine, we think they’re just the thing to serve for Father’s Day dessert. We made the recipe even easier by using Ghirardelli Triple Chocolate Brownie Mix and adding 1/4 cup red wine to the mix (our 2014 Treehaven Lane Petite Sirah or 2013 Sierra Trails Old Vine Zinfandel work really well in this recipe).

And don’t forget…
- Dad needs a classic cocktail, like a Screwdriver, to start his day: Just add a healthy pour of vodka to a tall glass of Tropicana Orange Juice.
- That perfect cup of coffee: brew up a pot of Prince & Spring Breakfast Blend for something deliciously smooth, or Prince & Spring Colombian for a flavorful, medium roast. They’re both organic and fair trade and make a great gift, too.
