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.
