Super-quick salmon gravadlax
Sure to become Dad’s favourite, this dish is the epitome of elegant, fresh food and is so simple to make. Served with beautiful balsamic beets, horseradish sauce and rye bread, it’s a really special starter. Jamie’s Santoku knife is the ideal tool for slicing that salmon with precision.
Super eggs Benedict
Get his day off to a cracking start with a timeless breakfast classic. Hot muffins and good-quality ham are essential for a top-notch eggs Benedict. The hollandaise makes more than you need, but it’s easy to refrigerate what’s left and use it like a mayo later in the week. Feel free to swap out the ham for smoked salmon or a portobello mushroom, if that’s your dad’s thing.
Quick flatbreads with avocado
Super-quick and simple to make, the great thing about these flatbreads is you don’t need any fancy equipment, and the dough only needs a short time to rest before you cook it. With minimal ingredients yet plenty of flavour, these are perfect for a last-minute Father’s Day lunch.
Fish finger sarnies
Ditch shop-bought fish fingers for these homemade sarnies – you won’t regret it. Served in warm baps with minty mushy peas and tartare sauce made from scratch, these are sure to put a smile on your dad’s face.
If you’re after an epic Father’s Day recipe, this burger ticks so many boxes. With crispy bacon, oozy cheese, tangy mustard and a dash of Tabasco Chipotle sauce, this is something really special. Feel free to swap in minced pork for minced beef here, or use a mixture of the two. Delicious served with baked sweet potato wedges and a crunchy slaw.
MORE: What to buy for Father’s Day
If you’re firing up the barbecue this Father’s Day, these veggie kebabs are a guaranteed hit with kids and adults alike. This recipe is really flexible, so use whatever ingredients take your fancy – mushrooms, onion wedges, chunks of aubergine or feta would work a treat. Ideal for eating alfresco on a sunny day with a fresh green salad and warm flatbreads or pittas.
Salted caramel brownies
With swirls of gooey salted caramel, a crisp exterior and outrageously fudgy centre, these brownies are sure to make your dad’s day. The trick here is to bake a batch and leave it to cool for 1 hour before slicing, so you end up with perfectly formed squares. Chocolate heaven!
Elderflower lemonade with frozen berries
Is there anything more refreshing than an ice-cold glass of elderflower lemonade on a sunny day? It’s so easy to make this sweet, fragrant drink at home. It’s a brilliantly thirst-quenching option and looks so pretty, too!
Whisky old fashioned
Finish off a day of feasting by raising a glass of something special. If whisky is your dad’s thing, get a classic on the go. Or shake up this Whiskey sour – the lemon gives this sophisticated drink an edge. Cheers!
