It’s also a good idea to offer a variety of meats to guests, such as chicken, steak, burgers, kabobs, or hot dogs. In our house, we love to make Mushroom and Swiss Stuffed Burgers on the grill.

Mushroom and Swiss Stuffed Burgers

  • 1 tablespoon butter

5. Keep everyone entertained while you’re grilling! Plan some fun games or activities for everyone to enjoy while they are waiting to eat. Fun games centered around dad are a great way to celebrate Father’s Day. Games like “Who Knows Dad Best” would be a fun game to play with the whole family. Type up some questions about dad and print them out for everyone to fill out the answers. Whoever gets the most questions correct wins a prize. You can also hold a “Dad Roast.” How fun would it be to give dad a good chuckle as you roast him!
