As Father’s Day is this Sunday, I decided to put together a collection of 40 recipe ideas to help you prepare for this day.
In the United States, Father’s Day was established early in the 20th century as a counterpart celebration to Mother’s Day, and set to occur on the third Sunday in June.
PIN THIS FOR LATER:
Father’s Day is usually a little lower key than Mother’s Day, and it is often celebrated with immediate or extended family gathering together for an informal celebration.
Because Father’s Day falls in early summer in the United States and outdoor cooking was traditionally viewed as man’s work, there is an inevitable tradition of backyard barbecues and grilling on a sunny Sunday.
Father’s Day calls for a hearty meal that your dad or grandpa would appreciate. However, a quick online search of “Father’s Day recipes” turns up results of burgers, wings, pork and steaks to no end.
While an abundance of meat and fried foods can certainly be delicious for the entire family, there are many healthier recipes that can be enjoyed next to your favorite dishes.
In this collection you will find easy recipes that can be put together in no time. Whether you are making breakfast, lunch, dinner, or just dessert, I am sure your dad or grandpa will appreciate the effort on a day that is set aside for him.
If the weather is warm enough to be outside, fire the grill, make some salads, have a dessert. If the weather is bad and you have to stay indoors, there are plenty of other recipes you can make for him.
Come check out the list and see if there’s something special you know your Dad would really love. Enjoy!
