A Simple Show of Thanks
When it comes to Father’s Day, the simple act of slowing down to celebrate can go a long way.
As the days grow longer and the temperatures climb higher, a laidback summer gathering allows us to enjoy the company of family without the stress of a complicated meal. So, in this spirit of simplicity and in honor of the enduring love and appreciation we have for the father figures in our lives, we have put together a Father’s Day barbeque menu that will allow you to spend more time celebrating with the people who matter most.
Creating a simple meal allows you to spend time and energy on selecting the best ingredients, preparing each step with care and serving delicious food. This way, you have more time to slow down and enjoy the process. Our Father’s Day menu celebrates the summer classics: burgers, potatoes and perfectly seasoned grilled vegetables. Enjoy this classic meal and the memories you make when you gather to toast your fathers and grandfathers.
The Ultimate Burger
This tasty recipe uses just the right balance of ingredients to complement the natural flavor of the burger. Add a dash of your favorite FilFil for an extra layer of delicious complexity.
1 pound lean ground beef
1 large egg
2 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon pepper
½ cup minced onion
¼ cup almond flour
1 tablespoon FilFil
In a bowl, combine all ingredients until well mixed. Divide into 4 equal parts and shape into patties about 4 inches in diameter. Brush a light coat of olive oil over the grill and lay burgers over the grill at high heat. Close lid and wait about 4 minutes or until browned on one side. Flip only once and then close lid and wait another 3-4 minutes until both sides are browned. If you are adding cheese to your burgers, put the cheese on 1 minute before you are finished grilling the burgers.
Grill the buns. Our favorite hamburger buns are brioche buns – they are soft, slightly sweet and 1 minute on the grill will give them the perfect crisp.
Serve with a range of your favorite add-ons. We recommend:
Roasted Potato Salad
With bold flavors and warm, crispy potatoes, this twist on the traditional potato salad makes for a satisfying complement to the meal.

2 tablespoons olive oil
2 cloves minced garlic
1 tablespoon minced rosemary
1 teaspoon salt, divided

Spread mixture over preheated baking sheet and sprinkle with ½ teaspoon of salt and ½ teaspoon of pepper. Bake at 400˚for 30 minutes. Whisk remaining 1 tablespoon of olive oil, salt, pepper, vinegar, shallots and mustard in a small bowl. Drizzle dressing over warm potatoes and serve.
