Fun Recipes to Celebrate Father's Day in your Condo

With Father’s Day just around the corner, this is the perfect time to invite family and friends over for a fun celebration in your condo. Since dads rarely ask for much, there are so many ways to celebrate their special day, like going fishing with him or binging action movies. 

With that said, all your dad wants is to spend some quality time with you, and other than traveling and going to malls, one of the best ways to do that is to prepare some great meals with and for your dad. From appetizers to desserts, we have gathered some of the best recipes you can try that will put a smile on his face!

Appetizers

Cheeseburger French Dip Sliders

Quick and easy to make, sliders are one of the best appetizers for any sort of gathering. This one, in particular, combines the classic American roast beef sandwich with a special French gravy to create a fun appetizer. 

Stuffed Jalapeños With Gorgonzola And Bacon

Dads love japapeños and bacon. Now add a few more ingredients, and you have all you need to make some of the most satisfying jalapeño poppers ever. This recipe only needs five (5) ingredients and comes together quickly, so they’re sure to be a favorite among your family!

Saucy Sesame Meatballs

If you are looking for something a little saucier and flavorful, be sure to give this one a try. Putting a twist on the traditional marinara meatball recipe, these saucy sesame meatballs are just bursting with flavor.

Entrées

Grilled Flank Steak and Asparagus with Chimichurri Butter

What’s a celebration for dad without steak? Originating from Argentina, this flank steak recipe is an excellent choice for the main course. If you’re lucky enough to be able to grill in your condo, definitely try this one out!

Beef Short Ribs in Burgundy Sauce

If you feel like spending a little more money on short ribs, then you won’t regret it with this recipe. Coming from the front belly, short ribs are naturally much fattier, making it a mouthwatering family favorite. These also go well with roasted veggies or a steakhouse-style salad.

Orange Glazed Pork Chops with Cardamom and Honey

If you want a pork-based main course this pork chop recipe is the way to go. Repurposing the marinade into a sticky, tart citrus glaze is a great way to make the traditional pork chop recipe more interesting. Serve it with rice and extra sauce to make the most out of the meal!

Drinks

Minty Tea Punch

A plain, old drink won’t do for the recipes listed above. If you really want to wow your dad and your family, try this refreshing homemade punch instead. The combination of mint, lemon, and oranges is perfect for those who aren’t that big on sugary drinks. 

Sour Cherry Old-Fashioned

If you want to try mixing up an alcoholic drink, this recipe deserves a try. Bursting with sweet syrup, sour cherries impart a vivid fruit flavor to this retro-style cocktail. Curls of lemon zest add a bit of zing to the whiskey's hints of rich oak.  

Desserts

Triple Chocolate Wacky Cake with a Dark Chocolate Ganache

You can’t talk about desserts without bringing up chocolate cakes, and this recipe comes with triple the chocolate goodness! When you’re done making this cake, your dad and guests will have to prepare themselves for how moist and scrumptious the cake is. What’s more, this recipe is egg-free and dairy-free, so it’s perfect for those with dietary restrictions. 

Bacon Potato-Chip Chocolate Cookie

Who said cookies can’t have bacon and potato chips? You might think this is a joke, but as soon as you get a taste of these cookies, you’ll just want more. The saltiness of the bacon and potato chips is balanced by the use of dark chocolate. Aside from the flavor itself, the look on your dad’s face when you tell him what’s in the cookies will make a great memory. 

With all the easy-to-follow recipes we have listed down, you won’t have to worry about coming up with the perfect meal to impress your dad. Instead, you’ll have more time to spend with your dad and enjoy his special day together with the whole family. 

Celebrating special events can be more special when celebrated inside our homes. With our family preparing all the needs for every event, it makes every effort intimate and worth-celebrated as it is filled with love.
