Party in Five: Southern Comfort Father’s Day Brunch


We here at Cooking Channel love a good party. But throwing a memorable event requires more than just gathering some food and drink. We show you how with just five main “ingredients” (including recipes, big-impact decorating ideas and easy DIY elements) you can throw a party that feels like it has a cohesive theme — minimal work required.

Though our dads deserve a big bash to honor their thankless sacrifices, Father’s Day is often underserved with a simple, lackluster barbecue. This year, attempt to repay Dad with a Southern-inspired comfort food brunch that features his favorite flavors and something different than the steak-and-burgers, beer-and-sports routine. (Why should brunch — a hearty, any-time-of-day meal — be saved for the moms only?) A buffet setup keeps this party concept laid-back, while a neutral palette proves that the manliest of men can be celebrated with themed decor.

To host your own Father’s Day brunch, you’ll need five essential ingredients:
• family photos, new and old
• Bloody Marys
• printable Father’s Day cards (download the template here)
• potted succulents
• Virginia ham biscuits

Click here to see the full brunch spread and get tips for hosting your own Father’s Day brunch:

Spotlight On: The Menu

Create a fuss-free menu of Dad-friendly dishes and arrange them on the buffet so guests can help themselves (and go back for seconds!). Skillet Bacon Mac and Cheese is a decadent classic that can be prepared and served all in one dish. Serve it alongside grab-n-go Virginia ham biscuits to complete the hearty and comforting meal. For an adults-only drink, nothing says “brunch” like a tall pitcher of Bloody Marys, prepared in advance for easier service. Arrange salt-rimmed glasses on the buffet garnished with all the fixins: cornichons, cocktail onions, olives and limes.

Last but not least, set out the only dessert course that’ll do at a Southern-inspired meal. This Bourbon Banana Pudding recipe is a sophisticated spin on the classic with its smoky undertones and spiced gingersnaps in lieu of wafers. Serve individually in Mason jars and alongside a make-your-own-coffee station.
