Father’s Day is almost upon us. Are you ready? One thing that Dads around the world love most is good food and lots of it. The man in your life may smile and thank you for his gift, like the typical tie, but if you really want to wow him, make him a meal that he’ll never forget. Our friends over at AllFreeSlowCookerRecipes.com have quite a few tasty Father’s Day recipes for you to try that won’t keep you in the kitchen all day long.
Dad-Approved Father’s Day Recipes for Your Slow Cooker
Finger food is always the best way to go. There’s no need for plates or forks, making clean up much easier. When Dad’s stomach starts grumbling, serve him some Hot Dog and Bacon Roll Ups. He (along with the rest of your family) will love the combination of smoky bacon and juicy hot dogs. If Dad’s not a huge fan of bacon and hot dogs or if you think he’d like another appetizer better, there are tons of other slow cooker appetizers to choose from.
In terms of dinner recipes, a lot of Dads are “meat and potato” types. Instead of whipping up one of those fancy Father’s Day Recipes, take advantage of a tried and true summer flavor: BBQ. Simple Shredded BBQ Pork Sandwiches are extremely versatile and customizable to your man’s palette. All you really need to do is throw all of the ingredients into your crock pot and not touch it again until you’re ready to eat.
Your Father’s Day dinner isn’t complete without one or two delicious, mouthwatering slow cooker desserts. May I suggest the Easy Cherry Dump Dessert (pictured above)? With only 3 ingredients, you’ll be in and out of your kitchen in no time. The cake mix makes this treat super moist and the cherry filling creates the perfect flavor. Add a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top to make this dessert “ala mode.” (My dad does it for almost every dessert.) One of the best things about this sweet treat is that the cake mix makes it much lighter than a cherry pie so you won’t feel so weighed down after digging in.
