20 Meaty Mains to Make for Dad
In case you didn’t already know, Father’s Day is this Sunday. With two small kids, we try to keep things simple for these kinds of minor holidays, so a special meal and a few handmade cards is all we’ve got planned for celebrating my husband this year.
I did, however, have a really fabulous time and a few good laughs asking my husband what he thought would make a good roundup of recipes for Father’s Day dinners this year. There are some classics — steaks and pork chops — but there also a few surprises in the mix. Have a look and see what inspires.
Of all my husband’s dinner requests, this steak sandwich is chief among them, but he did say he’d settle for any other steak — grilled, butter-basted, balsamic-glazed.
Hosting a bunch of dudes for Father’s Day? Burgers are the ultimate make-ahead, crowd-pleasing recipe there is.
Pork chops and tenderloin are two overlooked options for cooking a memorable Father’s Day dinner. Treat them like a steak and you’ll be rewarded with a dinner just as satisfying.
When I asked my husband what he might put into a Father’s Day recipe roundup, his last suggestion surprised me: breakfast for dinner. On his fantasy Father’s Day menu? Biscuits, sausage gravy, and fried chicken sandwiches.
