Trust us: A thoughtful, hand-crafted meal is the ultimate way to show him how much he means to you. #fathersday

Step one: put down the cheesy tie you were about to buy. Step two: pick up the skillet.

Breakfast Sandwich

Crazy Feta Biscuits & Harissa Bacon & Tzatziki

For biscuits: 3 cups all-purpose flour 1 Tablespoons sugar 2 ½ teaspoons baking powder ½ teaspoon baking soda ½ teaspoon salt ¾ cup unsalted butter, cold and cut into cubes 1 egg, beaten 3 tablespoons cold water ¾ cup sour cream, cold ¾ cup Crazy Feta 1 egg, for egg wash extra all-purpose flour biscuit cutter

For biscuits:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line 2 baking sheets w/ parchment paper. In mixing bowl, sift flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda & salt. Cut in butter until mixture resembles a coarse meal. In another bowl, combine egg, sour cream & water. Beat lightly w/ fork.

Add to flour mixture, stirring enough to make a soft & shaggy dough. Add Crazy Feta & dump mixture on a clean counter to knead dough together; don't overmix. Add flour sparingly if needed. Cut dough into 2-inch rounds w/ biscuit cutter. Place on baking sheet, brush w/ egg wash & sprinkle w/ paprika. Bake for 12-15 minutes.

For bacon:

Brush a few strips of bacon w/ harissa. Start bacon in a cold pan, resting strips in the skillet before you turn on a low to medium-low flame. When bacon starts to buckle & curl, use tongs to loosen strips & turn each slice to cook on other side. Keep flipping & turning bacon so that it browns evenly & cooks to desired crispness. Lay cooked pieces on paper towel to drain. Pour off bacon fat between batches.
