Father’s Day Brunch
Is your pop an early bird? Then make your big Father’s Day meal breakfast or brunch. Wake up early and fire up the griddle for flapjacks and eggs. Make sure to have plenty of coffee and espresso on hand along with morning sippers like mimosas and Bloody Marys.
Fried Chicken Lunch
No one can resist the appeal of crispy fried chicken—not even dads. Celebrate Father’s Day with homemade fried chicken and plenty of extras. You can even make copycat KFC coleslaw to go with your drumsticks. When the meal is done, finish up with southern favorites like banana pudding or buttermilk cake.
BBQ Rib Bash
You’d be hard-pressed to find a dad that doesn’t enjoy ribs. Make these the star of this year’s Father’s Day meal. Serve these up with plenty of sides including other flame-grilled favorites like corn on the cob and grilled veggies.
If a pizza oven is on Dad’s Father’s Day wish list, he’ll love a Father’s Day meal with pizza as the star. Start by making your own pizza dough. Then top with plenty of gooey cheese and all kinds of toppings. Finish up dinner with homemade limoncello or tiramisu.
BYOB (Build Your Own Burger)
We know that many dads can’t resist firing up the grill—even on days when they should be taking it easy. Let dad flip a few burgers if he can’t resist the call of the grill. Be sure to stock up on some extras like next-level condiments and top-notch cheeses. Earn a few extra points with Dad when you make your own burger buns.
Chicken Wing Extravaganza
If your pop is the kind of guy that lives for game day, transform your Father’s Day meal into a tailgate-style feast. That means tons of wings, plenty of hot sauce and maybe a few cold beers.
If your dad has a sweet tooth, add a sundae bar to your Father’s Day celebration. This frozen treat buffet should include pints of Dad’s favorite ice cream and toppings galore. Because it’s a big day, make sure you make a few things from scratch, like homemade whipped cream and chocolate sauce. Don’t skimp on the sprinkles either!
