We all know dads like to grill out, but this Father’s Day, show him what you’re made of and send him to the hammock with a cold drink of his choice. Getting him out of the way will give you enough elbow room to create the Man-ster Burger in celebration of Father’s Day. To go all out, try catering your Father’s Day celebration!

Super Recipe for Man-ster Burger
So what is the Man-ster Burger? It’s meat, but because you love dad and want to give him an unforgettable Father’s Day, you will use extra lean ground beef, preferably 93 percent lean and seven percent fat. Really, it’s not necessary to dish up a meal saturated in fat, and besides, the onions and steak sauce will more than make up for not soaking the hamburger bun in a pool of grease.
Get these ingredients for the Father’s Day Man-ster Burger:
- 1.5 lbs. of extra lean ground beef
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 3 Tbsp. steak sauce
- 4 cheese slices
- 4 hamburger buns
- dill pickle spears
- various condiments
*Feel free to double recipe (you’ll see why later).
Now, call Dad to come light the grill. After this task is completed, give him another cold drink and send him back to the hammock. If he doesn’t leave immediately, tell him the next door neighbor lady’s arthritis is acting up and she needs help changing the kitty litter for Precious, her cat out of hell. This will have him feigning sleep in the hammock in no time.
Mix meat, onion and steak sauce and shape into patties. Grill. If you’re a still a child, an adult must be present. If you’re still a child disguised in an adult body, an adult must be present. That way you can exchange “crazy dad” stories like the time he picked you up from school wearing a batman costume.
Save a Cheeseburger for Dad on Father’s Day
Don’t get carried away, though. Before the meat turns into shriveled, burnt lumps, remove from grill and place on bun with lettuce, tomato and cheese. Put a pickle spear or two on the side. Eat your fill (see * above) and then go tell Dad the burgers are ready.
Black Beans and Corn-on-the-Cob for the Hungry Father
Easy enough, huh? Well, you’re not off the hook yet. Man cannot live by Man-ster Burger alone. Grill corn-on-the cob by wrapping them into pieces of aluminum foil with butter and parmesan cheese. Also, open up a can of pork-n-beans, or even better, open a can of black beans–protein is a good thing, right? Be sure to have plenty of sour cream and tortilla chips on hand to scoop the beans with–no spoons allowed.
