20 Homemade Father's Day Recipes
1. Jameson Blue Cheese Burger With Guinness Cheese Sauce & Crispy Onions
Making meals from scratch is one of the most personal things you can do for someone. You're devoting your time and energy to create a dish that's special to you and will be presented to them.
So, given its personal nature, what better way to celebrate the day of someone you love than with a homemade meal? Enter the Jameson Whiskey Cheese Burger! This burger was made for men, by men, and you can bet this recipe comes with its own beard oil and flannel shirt.
2. Pizza Mac n' Cheese
Mac n Cheese is already great by itself, but Pizza Mac n Cheese takes a classic and makes it even better. With classic pizza flavors like oregano, tomato sauce, and beef, this homemade recipe will be a great addition to your Father's Day menu. In the words of Emeril Lagasse, “Let's kick it up a notch!”
3. Lime & Garlic BBQ Chicken Salad
Oh no – this is no ordinary salad! This is one of the tastiest, heartiest salad recipes you'll ever come across. BBQ chicken, lime and grilled pineapple create a heavenly dish filled with tropical, robust flavors and aromas.
With a salad like this, you'll be left feeling so fulfilled and satisfied, you'll forget that what you ate was a salad!
4. Homemade Black Forest Pancakes Recipe
We know Mother's Day brunch is a big deal, but why don't dad's get the same Mimosa and pancake treatment? I say, let's change the status quo and make Father's Day brunch a thing! Whip these black forest pancakes up right before dad gets up and let the smells do the rest.
5. Garlic Beer Marinade for Grilled Chicken
This recipe is super easy and super fun to make! We love beer battered-anything so of course, we're going to treat ourselves and dads to this amazing beer garlic marinade. For a beautiful day like Father's Day, fire up the grill and get this recipe going. We promise you won't regret it!
6. Bacon Beer Cheese Soup With Chicken
Soup is finally getting the attention it deserves! If it's cold where you live, then never fear! You can still enjoy a beautiful day filled with delicious food. This bacon cheddar beer soup makes a great appetizer and will get your dad pumped for the other courses you have planned!
7. Homemade Bacon Guinness Chocolate Pancakes
If your dad's more the Ron Swanson, “breakfast is the only meal of the day” kind of guy, then he's going to love these chocolate Guinness pancakes! (Especially when he finds out they're topped with a frothy whipped cream head and Guinness chocolate syrup!)
8. Skirt Steak With Homemade Chimichurri Sauce
Father's Day recipes always seem to be loaded with meat, cheese, and beer, don't they? For a departure from the norm, this chimichurri sauce with skirt steak recipe will add a nice gourmet touch.
For those unfamiliar with chimichurri sauce, it is a traditional Argentinian sauce used for grilled meat and made up of parsley, garlic, olive oil, oregano, and white vinegar. This recipe is made with a bright and zesty chimichurri sauce and juicy skirt steak. This is definitely for the dads who love their meat!
9. Spicy “Egg in the Hole” With Harissa
We shouldn't assume that all dads love beer, chocolate, bacon, and meat. If your father is a gourmet foodie, then he'll definitely love the harissa in this recipe.
This dish is composed of classic elements, such as toast and eggs, and flipped topsy-turvy to create a meal that looks pretty and tastes delicious. To get even fancier, create a heart shape instead of a hole to show dad just how much you love him.
10. Black Bean Salmon Tostada Recipe
This recipe definitely needs to go on your Father's Day menu as it is light and filled with fun, fresh summer flavors such as guacamole, pico de gallo, lime, and other Mexican-inspired flavors that are going to make dad want an ice-cold beer and a sunhat.
11. Bacon, Blue Cheese, & Avocado Baguette
I think it's pretty safe to say that baguettes are one of the best inventions to ever grace this planet! The perfect baguette has a thick crust on the outside and is soft and warm on the inside.
Now imagine that, but add creamy blue cheese and avocado and salty, crunchy bacon. What you have there is essentially the best open-faced sandwich in the world. And doesn't dad deserve the best? We sure think so!
12. Prosciutto, Tomato, & Olive Spaghetti
Take everything you know about pasta and throw it out the window! This homemade recipe is unlike anything you've ever tasted before.
Olives and prosciutto give this spaghetti a much sought after salty taste. When it comes to special events, nothing beats Italian food, so clear your current menu and make this dish!
13. Cilantro Lime Grilled Shrimp With Roasted Poblano Sauce
If you're planning on grilling this Father's Day, you may as well make this recipe! These shrimp skewers were made for sunny afternoons and family get-togethers, so tantalize everyone's taste buds with Mexican-inspired flavors and make dad a meal he'll remember for the rest of his life.
14. Parmesan Potato Wedges
Just when you thought potato wedges could get no better, some genius decided to put parmesan on them and create a dish, unlike anything you've ever tasted! If your dad loves potatoes, then this recipe was made just for him!
15. Epic Quinoa Burgers With Sweet Potato Fries, Caramelized Onions & Gruyere
The original recipe isn't technically vegan but can be made so with a few alterations. Quinoa patties are so hearty and filling, your dad won't even believe he's eating a quinoa burger!
Topped with sweet potatoes, caramelized onions, and gruyere, this burger recipe is one you absolutely must make for Father's Day (that is, if you can wait that long).
16. Homemade Twix Brownie Trifle Recipe
If you're looking for diabetic-friendly desserts, we have just the Father's Day recipe for you. This dessert boasts a sugar-free vanilla pudding that's layered with Greek yogurt and topped with a dollop of sugar-free whipped cream.
You can still have all the fun this Father's Day with less than half the amount of sugar. Consider this a win-win!
17. Bacon Pancakes
Bacon is definitely having the best year ever with all the stickers, merchandise, and fan clubs that have been created in its honor. The world's most celebrated ingredient meets a classic breakfast dish to create a meal fit for a king — your dad!
18. Buffalo Chicken Salad
We love the Pioneer Woman (if you haven't had a chance to check out her site, please do so! You won't regret it!) and this recipe is another home run by her. A tasty salad topped with large chunks of buffalo chicken makes the perfect light, yet still satisfying meal, for Father's Day.
19. Sriracha Chicken Bacon Ranch Skewers
We love “man-approved” recipes as they're always incredibly decadent, greasy, and fatty — all flavors we desperately crave sometimes (who hasn't fallen victim to a double cheeseburger with bacon attack?).
This is the ultimate of “man-approved” meals as its made with ingredients like Sriracha, ranch, bacon, and chicken. If your dad is into hearty meals, he's going to devour (and not be able to do much afterward) these skewers.
20. Slow-Cooked Shredded Beef Ragu Pasta
Father's Day dinner is set with this slow-cooked beef ragu pasta dish! There aren't words to describe this dish's flavors; it's definitely a recipe you have to make to believe.

Ultimately, it's not about how well you cook, how pristine your plating is, or how expensive your ingredients are. Father's Day is about spending time with your family, enjoying the day and taking in the company of those you love.
A home-cooked meal only enhances that atmosphere and helps create even more memories that will last a lifetime! So, enjoy Father's Day, have fun, and tell dad how much you love him.
