If your dad is anything like mine, he could eat a burger a day. He’ll use any excuse to grill up a fresh burger from May to November… actually, he’s been known to cook burgers on the stovetop in the winter. It’s true love. However, just because dad loves burgers and grilling doesn’t mean that’s what you should make him on the special-est day for dads. After all, Father’s Day is all about treating your dad, so making him something he eats all the time isn’t much of a treat.

This Father’s Day, expand from the usual dude foods and make him something he can’t eat just anywhere. A new casserole recipe or sandwich could become one of dad’s favorites if you give it a try. If you’re thinking, “My dad would still rather have a burger,” stick with me. What if you make him a truly exquisite steak? Take things up a notch by stepping outside the burger box. Trust us, it’s delicious out here.
