This Father’s Day may be a little different for us with social distancing still in place. Whether you are lucky enough to be at home with dad or arranging a small garden gathering (glorious British weather permitting) we have some great ideas for you from breakfast in bed to traditional roasts.
If you aren’t able spend the day with Dad this year, why not surprise him with a doorstep delivery of his favourite home cooked dish or even set up a virtual dinner to enjoy together? Times may be tough, but that doesn’t mean you can’t treat your dad with some mouth-watering Father’s Day recipes.
Classic Father's Day Roasts
A Father's Day Sunday Roast is the time-honoured, hearty, triumphant, tuck-in classic meal that everyone loves. Here's a selection of traditional roast beef and roast lamb recipes plus some with a more unusual twist.
For a quicker option, you could try out one of our tasty mini roast recipes that are really easy to make and are perfect for 2-3 people.
On the BBQ
If the sun is shining, we've got a dedicated BBQ recipe page full of easy beef and lamb BBQ recipes plus top tips and how-to guides. Alternatively, below are some of our favourite videos to help you get the most out of your BBQ, especially for cooking the perfect steak and kebabs (and you will find all our recipe and cooking guide videos on the Simply Beef and Lamb YouTube channel).

Cook up a surprise for Dad
Planned in advance or as a last-minute gift idea, a meal cooked for Dad presented with a home-made card is always going to be a winner.
Here's some tasty recipe ideas for breakfast, lunch or dinner that the kids are going to love to cook for Dad (adult help will probably be required!).
