This weeks posts are all for Father’s Day. I have 4 breakfast recipes for ya and one dish you can grill up for dinner on the line up. We are starting the week off with Waffles for a King. Now, not only are this intended to be served to the your King of the Castle for Father’s Day, but they were inspired by the King of Rock and Roll – the one and only Elvis Presley.

I absolutely love to watch Elvis movies. I have had loved them since I was a young girl. O love the music, that dancing and that Elvis smile.

Now Elvis had a love for the combination of peanut butter, banana, and marshmallow. So, that is exactly what is used in this breakfast. It’s a peanut butter waffle topped with fresh banana slices and a nice scoop of marshmallow fluff! Now you can always change the toppings for anything that goes well with peanut butter. However, I must say I love this combination with these waffles for a king. I even think you could spread a little peanut butter on top of the waffles for even more peanut butter goodness.

  1. Yum! And thanks for the tip on keeping waffles warm. I never like having to keep cooking while everyone is eating and then not making them fast enough. I’m for sure trying this.
