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.

Great Steaks

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.

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.
