Breakfast in bed or on the porch for that special Dad would be a super way to start Father’s Day. Really, any weekend would be special with these rich shortcakes layered with smoked salmon and poached eggs.

This recipe focuses on getting these flaky shortcakes just right. You’ve got a pass to use store-bought smoked salmon but we suggest buying the best you can find at your trusty appetizing store.

If you want to impress Dad and go homemade the whole way you can cure your own salmon at home by following this recipe.

It takes five ingredients (including the salmon) and about 24 hours. It’s so easy that you really won’t believe it. We won’t tell, either.
