A Delicious, Easy Father's Day Menu He's Sure to Love
You want to treat dad to a special day, but you don't want to spend all day in the kitchen to do that. We've been there. This menu is simple, quick, but impressive and fosters the shared experience of dining together. We've even offered alternatives in case you know dad has other favorites he'd like to see on his place for his special day.
Bring on the Appetizers
You didn't bring just any ol' cooking plan to today's menu. You're bringing the best, and the best starts with these prosciutto-wrapped scallops. Each bite is basted in butter, and it'll be finished off with a dipping sauce of dad's liking. Might we recommend a tangy remoulade?

The Main Event
What dad doesn't love steak? If your Pop would rather be behind the grill while the cooking is going on, let him help you here. All the flavor work is done with an overnight marinade, so he can cook the steaks to his liking while you finish out the other dishes and get the garlic topping for this dish finished.

Set the Table
Our Table's contemporary Landon Collection, available only at Bed Bath & Beyond, has everything you need for setting the table for dinner. Pick up the plates and dinnerware, which have clean, modern lines, and grab a few placemats while you're at it. We eat first with our eyes, so make sure your masterpiece is served on a gorgeous canvas.
A Potato Kind of Guy
Meat and potatoes, just the way dad likes it. But instead of the traditional baked potato or French fries, spoil him with these steakhouse-inspired potatoes. They're easier to make than the au gratin style potato, and they're just as creamy and decadent as twice baked potatoes.
Other Father's Day Potato Side Dishes:
He Eats His Greens
You could do a classic green side salad with vinaigrette to round out dad's meal, but if you want to get creative, consider this spinach salad that's dressed up with mandarin oranges, almonds, and a zippy poppy seed dressing.

Save a Slice for Dad
Now, you can't go leaving dad without dessert. After he's finished that beautiful meal and those scrumptious appetizers, it's time for the sweet treat. This cheesecake combines chocolate sandwich cookies (probably one of his favorite snacks) with a classic, ultra-decadent cheesecake. There's even a layer of cookie pieces in the middle.

Sit Back and Relax
After you've washed all the dishes and put away the leftovers, now's the time to sit down with dad, relax, and take in the rest of the day. If Pops is a beer guy, you know what to do. But if he likes his drinks shaken, stirred, or served over rocks, you'll need a stellar recipe. Start with an Old Fashioned Cocktail, because there's nothing better.
