Father’s Day Inspiration
By Schwan's Home Service, June 6, 2016
Father’s Day is less than two weeks away, and this year it falls on Sunday, June 19th. Plan a special meal now for the big day. Here are a few thought-starters:
Dad’s Day Breakfast in Bed
Surprise the special guy in your life with breakfast in bed. These Bacon and Sausage Muffin Cups are a fun surprise – add jalapeños for an added punch. While the muffins are baking, blend up a fresh Tropical Smoothie to get dad’s day started right.
Light Lunch on the Grill
A light but sophisticated outdoor lunch for the family is a great way to spend the day. A simple variation of Dijon Grilled Chicken with Salad is wonderful with a side of grilled French Baguette. Yes, that’s right, grilled bread. Bake your bread according to the package instructions, cut in thick diagonal slices and brush with melted butter on both sides. Grill each side until it’s lightly browned and grill lines appear. A slice of Key Lime Pie is just the right finish for this refreshing meal.

Steakhouse Dinner at Home
Bring the luxury and tradition of the steakhouse to your kitchen with a simple meal of fine ingredients. Choose your favorite cut of premium beef: USDA Choice Top Sirloin Steak or USDA Choice Filet Mignon. You could have some fun getting the family involved as servers, taking everyone’s order – and don’t forget to ask how they’d like their steak prepared!
Once everyone is seated, start your meal with a basket of Ciabatta Rolls and butter. Include a relish tray if you want to be really authentic. Serve your steak with Garlic Red Skinned Mashed Potatoes and Grade A Asparagus Spears. Finally, take a dessert order with choices from a variety of Mini Cheesecake and Brownie Bites, and leave everyone smiling.
