Five on Friday: What to Cook Dad This Weekend
All Dads like food—it’s a fact. So what better way to show your Pops you care, than by making him something delicious? Here are 5 delicious options for 5 different kids of fathers:
1. For the Beer-and-Barbecue Dad
Beer-Can Chicken with Cola Barbecue SauceThis recipe yields tender chicken that will feed the whole family. Your dad will appreciate this all-American dish and the idea of letting beer gently marinate the chicken throughout its grilling process.
2. For a Dad who Can Handle Heat
Grilled Pepper PoppersGet the party started on Father’s Day with these grilled, stuffed peppers. They make a great appetizer or side dish to a burger or grilled chicken.
3. For a Dad Who Loves His Steak
For the meat-loving dads, don’t skimp; cook this juicy steak dish. Pair with a side of potato wedges for a complete dinner.
4. For the Health-Nut Dad
Grilled Salmon and Brown Butter CouscousPacked with flavor and heart-healthy fats, salmon can handle the grill, whereas flaky fish like cod, sole, and tilapia tend to fall to pieces. So delight dad with this delicious and healthy grilled salmon recipe.
5. For a Dad with a Sweet Tooth
Blueberry-Peach CobblerUse summer’s bounty and make a sweet treat for dad this weekend. Our light and scrumptious cobbler recipe goes perfect with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. You can substitute a berry higher in fiber like blackberries, if you like.
Bonus: Did you know raspberries have 8g of fiber per cup? Our friends at PopSugar Fitness charted out the amount of fiber in various fruits so you know which sources are best in Fruity Ways to Fill Up on Fiber.
