PrintFriendly and PDF

Father’s Day is a great day to show your dad just how much you appreciate him and all he has done for you by giving him a nice gift and a thoughtful card. Unfortunately, this is the reality– it sneaks up on you every year and you spend the last few hours the night before scrambling to come up with something, anything that he would appreciate. This year, it’s time to make a change and show your dad just how thoughtful you can be. Here are a few ideas of recipes and gifts that will show him just how much you care.

While moms like breakfast in bed, your dad is already moving for the day. By starting your dad’s morning off with a nice family breakfast, you can spend some family time before your dad begins doing what he wants to do with his fathers day. Whatever he likes doing, make his fathers day breakfast complete with quiche–it will provide him the energy he needs to enjoy his day. Try this Reuben Quiche: http://ncegg.org/recipes/reuben-quiche/

While dad is enjoying his day, he is also probably enjoying a glass of his favorite beer or Arnold Palmer Tea. Most of the time, it is easily forgotten to put the beer in the fridge or freezer to cool it down before consuming. If that ever happens to your dad, try a Corkcicle Chillsner Beer Chiller (Amazon $20). It instantly cools down any beer to perfect consumption temperature, and keeps it cool while dad is working or relaxing.

All dads love some deviled eggs. All dads also love bacon and cheese. For lunch, or even a snack, try these delicious bacon cheddar deviled eggs–dad is sure to love them! Recipe here: http://ncegg.org/recipes/bacon-cheddar-deviled-eggs/

Because dad is the best at grilling a delicious cut of meat, it never hurts to give him a cookbook to further improve his skills. Check out “Meat: Everything You Need to Know” ($26 Amazon) a cookbook by Pat LaFrieda, the third generation butcher and owner of America’s premier meatpacking business. Maybe he will even grill the family some dinner on his special day.

Hope you all have a wonderful Father’s Day!
