Kid-Friendly Recipes For Father’s Day

They say the quickest way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. If the special Dad in your life loves a good, home-cooked meal almost as much as he loves his family, why not gather the kids in the kitchen and cook him up a special dinner for Father’s Day? Here are some easy, kid-friendly recipes to try out this year from some of our favorite celebrity chef Dads.

Dragon’s Breath Chili by Guy Fieri

“Cooking with kids is not just about ingredients, recipes, and cooking. It’s about harnessing imagination, empowerment, and creativity.” — Guy Fieri

Guy Fieri has two sons and is one cool Dad. His Dragon’s Breath Chili recipe brings on the heat with four kinds of peppers: Anaheim chiles, poblano chiles, red bell peppers, and jalapeno chiles. It also includes bacon grease, Italian sausage, boneless chuck steak, and lager beer, for the ultimate Dad combo. For the recipe and instructions from Food Network, click here.

Homemade Pizza (Dough) by Wolfgang Puck

Homemade Barbecue Chicken Pizza with Onions and Cilantro

“Most seasonings are based on family tradition.” — Wolfgang Puck

Homemade pizza isn’t quite as good without Wolfgang Puck’s famous Pizza Dough recipe, seen here on The Spruce Eats. The signature dish from this father of four and world-famous chef is the House Smoked Salmon Pizza (from his equally famous restaurant, Spago). But never fear! You and your kids can top Dad’s pizza any way you like with everyday favorites straight from the kitchen pantry cabinet.

Bubble and Squeak Cakes by Gordon Ramsay

“I want my kids to see me as Dad…. not a television personality.”Gordon Ramsay

Master Chef and father of five, Gordon Ramsay, knows his way around a kitchen pantry cabinet. His vegetarian Bubble and Squeak Cakes have a kid-friendly name. They are also easy to whip up for children (and adults) of any age, with pantry staples like potatoes, flour, salt, and pepper. For the recipe from BBC Good Food, click here.

Pork Buns by David Chang

Food, to me, is always about cooking and eating with those you love and care for.” – David Chang

Celebrity chef and Dad-to-be, David Chang, is expecting his first child later this year. The host of Ugly Delicious is famous for his Pork Buns, a savory pairing of pork and pickled cucumbers wrapped in warm, bite-sized buns. While the ingredients are simple, this recipe takes a little more skill and fine hand coordination, and is most suitable for older tweens and teens to help prepare.
