Father’s Day Recipe Ideas

It’s dad’s day, so treat him to something special! For Father’s Day, share a delicious meal together or even just a homemade treat. Try one of these recipes or mix and match a few to make your Father’s Day menu complete.


Avocado and Egg Brown Rice Bowl

This hearty, whole grain dish couldn’t be easier. Try adding steak and fresh salsa for protein and flavor.


Lemon and Dill Salmon Kebabs

This party-friendly recipe marries rich grilled salmon with the light, refreshing flavors of lemon and dill—a summery treat for all your guests. The best part? It only takes half an hour.


Grilled Chicken with Mango Salsa

This vibrant salsa combines sweet mangos, sour lime and spicy jalapenos for spectacular results. It’s mouthwateringly good on chicken or other grilled meats, vegetables, or if you dare, straight out of the salsa bowl.


Grilled Chicken with Roasted Red Pepper Coulis

Sauces are key to transforming meats and vegetables from the ordinary to the extraordinary. This red pepper coulis is fabulous on chicken, burgers, grilled portobellos or couscous.


Grilled Tofu with Cilantro Ginger Pesto

Set the scene for an Asian-themed cookout with this seasoned grilled tofu. The pesto is also delicious over noodles.


A mushroom is a perfect food for smoking, since it is porous and spongy by nature. The meaty portobello will shrink and become intensely concentrated as it cooks. Just be careful that you don’t overcook.

Mushroom Swiss Burgers

Elevate your cheeseburger with an infusion of minced mushrooms and a hint of Worcestershire sauce.

A fine addition to any burger repertoire—a tasty combination of beef, Andouille sausage, black beans and barbecue sauce!


Three Bean Salad with Bacon

Take this hearty and unusual three-bean salad as your contribution to a summer picnic or potluck. It’s quick to prepare for a weeknight dinner at home, too, with turkey burgers or grilled chicken kebabs.


Caprese Pasta Salad

This pasta version of the Italian classic gets a tasty twist with peppery arugula standing in for basil.

This rich sour cream coffee cake can be made any time of the year, thanks to the wide availability of frozen blueberries.

These cute little tarts are perfect portions for dessert, and the berries on top glisten like little gems. A pecan and maple crust is like a crunchy cookie, and a perfect foil for the rich crème fraîche and juicy berries.


Wheat-free Vanilla Cupcakes

Using a wheat-free flour mix makes these cupcakes a snap to bake. Enjoy with lemon and vanilla buttercream icing.
