Fire Up the Grill This Father's Day: Best Grilling Recipes to Enjoy With Dad

If your family is like mine, then Father's Day is usually spent with loved ones gathered around the back deck with the grill fired up, and a cold beer in hand.

There's no better way to enjoy the warm June holiday than with a hot grill cooking up your summer favorites. Since Father's Day is all about food, fun and family, celebrate dad with these savory grilling recipes. Whether dad is at the helm of the grill or not (it should be his day off, but sometimes dads just love to grill), he'll certainly enjoy these delicious bites. Some are good old-fashioned grilling recipes, and others are unique (and tasty!) twists on the classics.

If burgers are more of your dad's scene, then you have to make this Bacon Burger with Homemade Thousand Island Dressing. Bacon and burgers taste amazing together, and the dressing really sets the whole meal.

If cheeseburgers are more his jam, then this Three-Cheese Stuffed Burger is the ultimate indulgence. This recipe is made with regular cheddar, white cheddar and monterey jack, but you can use any of your favorites. Can't decide between a hamburger and a grilled cheese? Enjoy both! This Grilled Cheese Burger not only tastes amazing, but looks impressive, too.

Your dad more of a steak guy? Then these Steak Wine Kabobs are the perfect family meal. The peppers and onions pair nicely with the sirloin on a kabob. This Skirt Steak with a Juicy Red Berry Marinade is also sure to be a crowd (and dad) favorite.  

A healthier option would be this Citrus Salad with Grilled Chicken Breast. Cook the chicken thoroughly on the grill, and enjoy on top of a delicious summer salad. For an appetizer, make these irresistable Grilled Potato Skins. By grilling them instead of baking them, you add a yummy seared flavor that really makes a difference.

And don't forget about dessert! This Grilled Pound Cake a la Mode is sure to hit the spot. Heat up the cake on the grill and top with fresh berries and cold ice cream. 

So grill up something delicious for dad this year (or if he's in charge of grilling, give him the recipes), and make sure to stock up on plenty of his favorite booze.
