Here are a few meal ideas to make “Dad” feel a little special this Sunday!

Father’s day will be here soon, and what better way to celebrate the fathers, husbands, brothers and sons in our lives than with a few manly meals they are sure to enjoy?  Most people are going to barbeque for Father’s Day for some real Barbequesmoked food but sometimes we need a little something different.  Here are some ideas to change up your regular barbeque.

Sliders:  Three ounces of 85% lean ground beef make the best sliders.  You can prepare all the burgers the day before and layer them with plastic wrap so they are ready to go on Father’s Day!

Wings:  Don’t know too many men that don’t like a good wing!  Think of your options:  Bone-in or boneless; Baked, grilled, deep fried, or breaded.  And then there are your sauces.  Everyone has a favorite . . . fire hot sauce, Buffalo, sweet and sour, teriyaki, BBQ, and a spicy asian.  Any and all are perfect!

California Coleslaw:  Try this dish for a nice change from traditional coleslaw.  It contains no mayonnaise so its a great option for a barbeque.  The difference is the addition of sliced almonds, chicken Ramen noodles & sesame seeds.

Grill Some Seafood:  Fish can be a great thing to grill and something healthy to add to a barbeque.  Some great options for grilling are salmon, tuna, swordfish, shrimp, and scallops.  You can also marinate the seafood if you want to add extra flavor.  All of these fish go great with a teriyaki flavor marinade.

Frozen Dessert:  Whether you serve a rich vanilla ice cream with strawberries or hot fudge or a frozen dessert pie.  Any refreshing frozen dessert is always a hit with all of the dads!!

Have a wonder Father’s Day, June 19, 2011.
