Easy Father's Day Meals to Impress Dad on a Dime

Posted on 06/13/2013

Make dad a manly meal this Father's Day. That means meat with a side of meat and for dessert, more meat! But of course all that meat can get expensive which is why we compiled these easy Father's Day dishes to impress dad on a dime.

Sausage-Cheddar Balls
This could work as an appetizer, breakfast dish or main course. Martha Stewart's Sausage-Cheddar Balls combine store-bought breakfast sausage, grated cheddar and a few other easy ingredients.

Grilled or Fried Skirt Steak
Skirt steak may be one of the most inexpensive cuts of beef you'll find in the meat department, but that doesn't mean it's not juicy and tasty when prepared properly. Follow these simple instructions from AllRecipes.com and you'll transform this affordable piece of meat into a dish dad will adore.

Classic Hamburger
Dear dad would probably appreciate a well-executed burger more than any complicated recipe. Get inspired to take your hamburger to the next level with this recipe from Delish.com. Add moisture and flavor with slow-cooked onions and an easy-to-whip-up "special sauce."

Oven Fries
Fries are far from fancy, but when you follow this recipe from Food Network chef Tyler Florence they become fit for a holiday meal. Take cheap ingredients like russet potatoes, salt, parsley and grated Parmigiano-Reggiano to create this fabulous Father's Day side dish.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Bacon Pie
This recipe from South Carolina baker Francine Bryson has gone viral. Francine is a contestant on CBS' American Baking Competition and during the premier she wowed the judges with this unique combination of flavors. The recipe includes budget-friendly ingredients like Chips-a-hoy cookies, powdered sugar and, of course, bacon. End your Father's Day meal with this and dad will probably ask that it becomes an annual tradition.
