To all the dads out there, Happy Father’s Day! Here are a few of my favourite recipes to celebrate you all! From finger foods to hearty meals, these Father’s Day Recipes are absolutely delicious! And very meaty too!
Meat recipes for Father’s Day
Popcorn Chicken – a great appetizer that will be greatly appreciated, these chicken bites are so crispy on the outside, but juicy on the inside. Who needs KFC when you can make these beauties at home with little effort too!
Bacon and Cheese Muffins – filling, with the best combo possible, these muffins can make a great breakfast or a hearty bite in between meals. Whenever hunger strikes, have a delicious bite of these heavenly muffins, and you are good to go.
Peri-Peri Chicken Wings – bake them in a fantastic peri-peri marinade, and you get nice and crispy skin, and juicy meat; I can’t think of a better starter for Father’s Day. No need to spend a lot of money at Nando’s, you can now have your favourite chicken wings at home.
Yogurt-Marinated Chicken Kebabs – grilled to perfection, and served with a delicious yogurt and garlic sauce, these homemade kebabs might be on the healthier side, but they are absolutely delicious, and a perfect starter for Father’s Day.
Baked Ribs with Sticky Korean BBQ Sauce – the appetizer of all appetizers, the best treat for all the fathers in the world. These ribs are so tender, they fall off the bone, and are heavenly delicious. Give them a try!
Puff Pastry Pinwheels with Ham and Cheese – another great favourite with dads, these pinwheels are excellent for breakfast, brunch, lunch, well, pretty much all day. They are filling, golden and meaty, how delicious!
Romanian Mici – or skinless garlicky sausages – the best recipe for the grilling season and for Father’s Day too. Big on flavours, super easy to make, these mici or mititei are a much-loved traditional Romanian recipe. Best served with yellow mustard and bread.
Slow-Cooker Meatloaf – this might be a healthy, low-carb meatloaf, but it’s so delicious, you will love every single mouthful of it. Hearty, filling, a recipe that dads will love. And pretty much everyone in the family too.
Turkey and Tarragon Burgers – a fantastic homemade recipe that makes for a quick and delicious dinner or a BBQ. Ready in less than 15 minutes, incredibly tasty, and a lot lighter than the classic beef burgers, these ground turkey burgers cooked on the grill are so juicy. Beef burgers may be amazing, but these turkey ones are so delicious too!
Turkey Kofta – served with a old-fashioned tomato and onion salad, these kofta are similar to the Romanian mici. Quick and easy, a great meaty appetizer for your dad.
Steak Bites – amazingly tender that they simply melt in your mouth. Ready in just about 10 minutes or so, these steak bites make a fantastic quick and easy lunch or dinner for Father’s Day. Serve them with chips or a nice filling salad, and you are in for a treat.
Baked Pork Chops with Onion Gravy – quick and easy to make, these pork chops are first seared on the stove top, and then baked for the perfect texture and taste. Smother them in a rich and flavourful onion gravy, and you got the perfect treat for Father’s Day.
Beef Tips with Gravy – a heavenly tender, flavourful and rich meal to make dinner the best time of the day. Melt-in-your-mouth beef, smooth gravy, all served over creamy mashed potatoes and a handful of peas. The best ever comfort food for all the dads.
Mozzarella-Stuffed Pork Meatballs – in a rich homemade tomato sauce, a delicious dinner recipe to share with your family. It’s an easy dish that can be cooked on the stove top or crockpot, and it’s what a comfort food tastes and looks like. If you want to try Italian food this Father’s Day, this recipe is for you!
Beef and Broccoli Noodles Stir Fry- everything you need is on this plate: protein, carbs, fibre, a whole range of vitamins and minerals, and above all, that unique Asian flavour that keeps us wanting for more. This is restaurant quality from the comfort of your own home.
These are just a few recipes that can make Father’s Day absolutely delicious! Give them a try, you will love them!
