A happy early Father’s Day to all you Dad’s out there, especially my own fantastic Dad. In honor of Dad’s special day, this Five for Friday are a few recipes I think my own Dad would enjoy.
1.Roasted Red Pepper, Fresh Mozzarella, Basil Roll Ups – My Dad loves roasted red peppers (and cheese) so I’m pretty sure he would devour these. He’d definitely sneak in a few extra bites when he thinks my Mom isn’t looking.
2. Grilled Stuffed Flank Steak – Probably more than my Dad loves roasted peppers, he loves prosciutto. Stuffing a steak with prosciutto and cheese? Something he would definitely enjoy.
3. Jalapeno Popper Chicken Sliders – I remember my Dad ordering jalapeno poppers as an appetizer more than a few times. I think he’d love the combination of chicken, jalapeno, and bacon!
4. Lasagna-Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms – There are two things I know for sure: my Dad loves lasagna and stuffed mushrooms. A mushroom stuffed with lasagna filling? It might just blow his mind.
5. Pizza Pinwheels – My Dad has always been a big fan of pizza. I remember more than a few trips to Little Caesars (Pizza, pizza. Pan, pan!) to pick up a pie or two when Mom didn’t feel like cooking.
Happy Father’s Day Dad!
