Kidzworld Kitchen: Father’s Day Delights

Jun 12, 2013

We don’t know about your dads, but ours love anything barbecued, bacon-flavored or hot out of the oven! So if yours shares the same favorites here are a few food ideas that will make his Father’s Day extra tasty! Try prepping some delicious cheese-stuffed burgers for him to expertly grill and slather with homemade BBQ sauce. Don’t forget to compliment his grilling techniques – he’ll love that! Then finish up the meal with some sweet and salty bacon chocolate chip cookies. It may sound like a crazy combination, but trust me that they are heavenly and dad won’t be able to get enough.

So cheers to dads everywhere for all that they do for us. Hopefully you make yours feel extra appreciated on June 17.

Inside-Out Cheeseburgers

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb of extra lean ground beef
  • 1/2 med minced onion
  • ¼ cup of BBQ sauce (see recipe below)
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • 2 tsp of seasoning salt
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ cup cornmeal
  • 8-10 slices of your favorite cheese (cheddar or blue cheese work great)

Instructions:

  1. In a large bowl combine raw ground beef with all the ingredients
  2. Mix thoroughly (Hint! The absolute best way to do this is with your hands so either scrub up or pick up some food safe latex gloves)
  3. Divide meat mixture into equal portions and form into balls
  4. Press a piece of cheese into the center of the ball and then flatten to form a patty (Hint! Be sure to press them well or your burgers might break apart)
  5. Lay finished patties onto wax paper and hand off to dad for grilling!

We are always a baby to our parents. When you was born , your mom and dad take care of you , So today you are there , In this position!  They give you many things , They are educating you just because they know without education and money our life is nothing! And only for your safety , they are treating you as a baby. They do many things for you , Now you should sacrifice some for them!
