Father's Day is around the corner. Take the time to make dad feel special with these 5 insanely delicious recipes.
1. Beef & Cheddar Burgers
You fancy yourself an adventurous soul, and you're not afraid to make bold choices when it comes to most things in your life, including the food you eat. So, why settle for a boring and bland burger topped with ho-hum toppings (we're looking at you tomato, onion and relish.) If you're looking for a burger recipe with a little more oomph, this one's for you. We've packed it with bold flavours, including Dijon mustard, fresh thyme leaves and loads of grated aged white cheddar, and we've used the best beef we can get our hands on, to let the meat really shine. The result? A juicy, delicious and flavour-packed burger that you will feel proud to serve at your next bbq or family dinner. Our advice? Pass on those typical toppings and instead reach for some fresh baby arugula, sriracha mayo and some top quality pickles.
2. Lime & Honey Grilled Chicken
Now that it's summer, we've switched off our ovens and have turned our attention to the mighty grill. Quick, easy and practically no clean-up, make us love this style of cooking. Here we've created a recipe for lime & honey grilled chicken that is seriously going to rock Dad's world. So, go on, what are you waiting for? It's time to get your grill-on!
3. Spaghetti Bolognese
Spaghetti bolognese is a perfect Father's Day dinner for many reasons. It's amazingly delicious and odds are, most of the members of your family like it, the sauce can be made in advance and be bubbling on the oven which cuts down on last minute work and it often yelds leftover's which dad will love.
4. Poached Eggs in Marinara Sauce
If dad's a fan of poached eggs, but he has not yet tried them poached in marinara sauce, then this is a perfect recipe to wake him up to on Father's Day. The sweet tomato sauce pairs perfectly with the soft and runny yolk of the egg and, heaped onto buttery toast or crusty baguette, this is one super easy but (super sensational) dish. For this recipe we've used our classic tomato basil marinara sauce, however in a pinch you can just pop open a jar of your favourite tomato sauce and get it piping hot in the skilet before you crack your eggs into it. We think it's the perfect breakfast, lunch or dinner.
5. Nutella Stuffed Crepes
Like we showed you in our how to make crepes article, making crepes at home is actually not as intimidating as you may think (we like to think of them as a really thin and super versatile pancake.) For this recipe, we've kept things ultra-simple. A basic crepe batter brimming with some deep dark chocolate hazelnut spread (we like Nutella.) Not a fan of Nutella? The best part about crepes is that really, you can fill them with whatever you like (think whipped cream and berries, caramelized pears and dulce de leche, cinnamon spiced apples and vanilla ice cream or even savoury versions like chicken and mushrooms.) No matter, we promise once you try these super simple crepes, you will never be intimidated to make them again. And dad will swoon over these delectable treats, for breakfast, lunch or even dessert.
