Father’s Day Menu Ideas
- Father’s Day Cookout
Gather the gang on Dad’s special day for a backyard barbecue. Slow-smoke a beef brisket and serve some tasty sides, including cowboy beans and coleslaw, then top off the meal with homemade ice cream sandwiches. This menu is sure to impress.
- Backyard Barbecue on Dad’s Day
If Dad’s a barbecue fan, this is the meal for him. Our Memphis-style baby back ribs are rubbed with a medley of spices and grilled until tender, then slathered with a sweet-and-tangy mop sauce. Round out the menu with grilled corn, potato salad and fresh peach cobbler. What could be a better gift on Father’s Day?
- Meatless Meal for Dad
Even if Dad’s not a meat eater, you can still cook an amazing Father’s Day meal for him on the barbecue. This menu features portobello mushroom “steaks” plus a French-style ratatouille, all cooked on the grill to intensify the vegetables’ flavors and impart an enticing smoky finish. With summer produce at its prime, it’s easy to cook a delicious meal for Dad.
- Father’s Day Celebration
Celebrate Dad by hosting a backyard cookout on Father’s Day. For the main course, try our whole chicken cooked on a vertical roaster over the grill; this technique produces a bird with succulent meat and crisp, golden skin. Appetizers, sides and dessert highlight the garden-fresh flavors of the season, from crostini topped with vine-ripened tomatoes to an apricot crisp with a crunchy crumb topping.
