Sparkle Kitchen: Father's Day Recipe Round Up

Sparkle Kitchen: Father's Day Recipe Round Up

In May, we celebrated our mothers — and now Father's Day is just around the corner. At Sparkle, we believe fathers are just as important in the daily lives of families as mothers. We want to honor that by giving you a few ideas for special treats your kids can make on their own to show Dad just how much he means to the family. I've rounded up breakfast, lunch, dinner, snack, and even dessert recipes so you have something to make at any point in the day — just in case you have an early-rising dad or one that likes to sleep in!

Campfire Raspberry Basil Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

Take grilled cheese to the next level and actually make them on the grill! Dads tend to love food cooked over a fire. This sandwich is gooey, cheesey, tangy, and sweet. Make four or five of them — Dad will want to eat them all!

Leek and Sausage Soup

If your father is like mine, he probably works really hard. My dad is handyman who builds and fixes things all day. He always comes home hungry. This leek and sausage soup is just the thing to help fill up those very hungry dads. Definitely make extra so there's some for the rest of the family too!
