5 Hearty Meals to Impress Big Papa on Father’s Day

Stuffed Cheese Board Burger

Father’s Day is about showing Pop just how much you appreciate all of the soccer games he drove you to. If your go-to gift is a set of new golf balls or a frilly razor, think about giving dad what he really wants: a day on the deck with burgers and beer.

Whenever the charcoal’s fired up and propane aflame, Dad’s usually the one wielding the spatula. But since it’s his day, head to the store and scorch one of the home-cooked meals below!

Burger Kebabs
Help your dad re-write his classic pepper-and-onion kebab recipe. These summertime skewers are loaded with provolone, pickles, onion, ciabatta, cherry tomatoes, and beef.

Terrified of the grill? Don’t worry—he’ll love Wisconsin Cheese’s crispy chicken and buffalo sauce sandwich, made from the safety of your kitchen.

Steak with epoisses sauce
If he’s a steak lover, try making this easy scrumptious sauce for a grilled rib-eye steak. Made with heavy cream, Époisses cheese, and chicken bouillon, this sauce will definitely top the polo tee you bought him last year.

Viking Veggie Burger
So Dad’s been on a diet lately and you’re worried about the calories in red meat. Try this veggie burger topped with sweet onion and smoked gouda—trust me, he won’t miss the beef.

Cheeseboard Burger
Impress your dad with the elegant side of grilling. This burger is topped with a spread of everything you’d see on a cheeseboard: olives, cornichons, figs, honey, and—of course—loads of melted cheese.
