But of course, the true event of the day is the mouthwatering, gut-busting dinner! Here are our chef’s top picks for your Father’s Day feast:

Bacon and Cheese Stuffed Burgers

Well, yes, it’s the burger of dad’s dreams if the peanut butter seems a little too out there. No dad can resist the bacon and cheese stuffed burger.

Give Him a Father’s Day to Remember

Spending quality time with dad is a must, made all the easier with these great Father’s Day ideas:

  • Breakfast in Bed: If your dad loves his breakfast but is always too busy to indulge, allow him the pleasure. Whether it’s Ultimate Egg and Bacon Sammies, Sugar Shack Maple Sausage Breakfast Bake, Apple French Toast Bake or Sunsoaked Scrambled Egg Tacos these brekkies are sure to please.
  • Video Games: If dad is a fan of video games, set up the console, pile up the snacks and get gaming.
  • Movie Night: Of course, there’s more to dads than eating! End the day with a movie night watching dad’s favourite movies, whether it's action-packed Die Hard John McClane, sci-fi crazy Star Wars or fantasy-filled Lord of the Rings.
  • Chore Day: Set dad up in a comfy lounge chair in the backyard while you get to work tackling his Sunday chores! He can offer tips to share his wisdom while enjoying the simple pleasure of not lifting a finger to help!
  • Play a Round of Golf or go Fishing together: Head out to dad’s favourite golf course to play a round of golf or get out on a boat to his favourite fishing spot and learn how the master does it.
  • Have a Picnic: Pack a lunch with dad’s favourite sandwiches, snacks and sides and enjoy a picnic at the park or beach. Everyone can laze on blankets and simply spend time talking or tossing around a ball or frisbee.
