Every week we pull together some great Canadian recipes from Canadian food bloggers around the web featuring one main ingredient or dish. This week we're celebrating Dad with more than 25 Father's Day recipes!
With Father's Day fast approaching it's time to think about what to cook for dad. Whether your dad is a gourmet chef, a BBQ master or he just cooks a mean bowl of Kraft Dinner, why not be the one to treat him to something delicious to eat this year from your own kitchen?
Whether you take up the apron and tongs and fire up the grill or get busy in the kitchen, we have over 25 delicious ideas that Dad (and everyone else) will love. We've got burgers and ribs galore, tacos, pizza, seafood and pulled pork. You can cook outside on the grill or set and forget the slow cooker. And of course, there's some Instant Pot friendly ideas.
And don't think it's all a big meat fest either! We've got lots of great plant based options (nobody will even notice the meat is missing). There's energy snacks for the active dad and of course... there's dessert!
Whether you're celebrating your dad this upcoming weekend or a special father figure in your life, you'll find something for everyone in this lineup of over 25 Father's Day recipes!
1. Bacon Jam Mozza Burger
The secret to a great burger? Compelled To Cook says it's all about using ground chuck. A ground chuck patty is the base for her delicious Bacon Jam Mozza Burger that's gonna be a favourite this summer!
2. The Best Ever Baby Back Ribs
When somebody says they have the Best Ever Baby Back Ribs... well that means you're going to have to give them a go. Allow yourself a solid 12 hours to make these ribs from the Delicious Spoon (8 hours marinating and 4 to cook!).
3. Ramen Salad With Steak
This is an oh so easy recipe perfect for the dad who loves his ramen but wants a summer version - Ramen Salad With Steak by Sneaky Mommies.
4. Pretzel Bites With BBQ Queso Dip (Vegan)
Surprise Dad with a big platter of Pretzel Bites and BBQ Queso Dip from Radiant Rachels. Added bonus? It's vegan so if you have a crowd over for Father's Day, everyone can partake!
5. Umami Beef and Pork Burgers
Is there such a thing as "the perfect burger"? Pups With Chopsticks says no... because everyone's version of perfection is different. Truth! But these Umami Beef and Pork Burgers look pretty darn amazing!
6. Grilled Vegetables With Balsamic Glaze
Instead of making Dad man the grill on Father's Day, give it a go yourself and whip up some Grilled Veggies with Balsamic Glaze and a sprinkle of Feta Cheese from Insightful Bite.
7. Date and Nut Energy Bars
Got a dad who's active? Why not make him a big batch of Cooking Sutra's Date and Nut Energy Bars. Sneak some in Dad's backpack, hockey bag or bike helmet so when he hits the trails he's fully stocked!
8. Balsamic Peach Pesto Pizza
For the pizza loving dad you're going to want to make him this Balsamic Peach and Pesto Pizza from Taste and Tipple. A from scratch crust covered with a Basil Pesto, mozzarella cheese, goat cheese, peaches and corn is perfect for a summer pizza.
9. BBQ Jackfruit Tacos With Mango Avacado Salsa (Vegan)
Jackfruit is a fabulous alternative to pulled pork in sloppy joes and taco - like these BBQ Jackfruit Tacos with Mango Avocado Salsa from the Vegan Harvest. They're covered in a creamy Chili Lime Sauce for even more flavour!
10. Cinnamon Bun Ice Cream Sandwiches
by Jo and Sue
When it comes to fun entertaining ideas and out of the box desserts, the duo at Jo and Sue can't be beat. Their Cinnamon Bun Ice Cream Sandwiches will be fun for everyone, not just Dad!
