Father’s Day Menu Ideas
Breakfast for Dad
Moms aren’t the only ones who deserve to be celebrated with breakfast. Make Dad feel special on Father’s Day this year with a festive spread, accompanied by a thoughtful note about how much he means to you. Blueberry pancakes are a breakfast favorite with good reason, and the kids can help with mixing up the batter. Fresh tomatoes and basil put a summery spin on simple scrambled eggs. Serve it all with sparkling lemonade that the whole family can enjoy.
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 combination 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 easy-to-assemble berry parfaits that take advantage of fresh summer produce.
A Father’s Day Dinner Any Dad Would Love
Now that summer is on the horizon, celebrate Dad by hosting a festive barbecue. Begin the meal with a simple starter that couldn't be easier to prepare: blistered padrón peppers sprinkled with plenty of flaky sea salt. The centerpiece of the party is souvlaki, chicken cooked on a rotisserie to juicy perfection and served with a quick pickled cabbage. An easy galette topped with summer’s first blackberries will end the meal on a sweet note.
Father’s Day Celebration
Celebrate Dad by hosting a backyard cookout on Father’s Day. For the main course, try our grilled New York strip steak served with a creamy horseradish sauce. Appetizers, sides and dessert highlight the garden-fresh flavors of the season, from bruschetta topped with vine-ripened tomatoes to cheesecake squares that get their summery flavor from the use of dried lavender and blackberries.
