Father's Day Dinner Ideas

Pickled Pink Pickle Chips

No matter the time of year, dad's grilling rule will always hold true: Don't grill on an empty stomach. Whip up a batch of Pickled Pink Foods' pickle chips to snack on throughout the afternoon. We love dipping these in a homemade ranch, ketchup, or dousing with hot sauce.

Pass the Tea Punch

To keep hydrated throughout the day, we suggest prepping a bowl of Pass the Tea Punch featuring Oliver Pluff & Co's black tea: the sweet tea cocktail built for summer sipping and a batch cocktail that will fuel the whole family.

Tailgate Wings with Blue Cheese Dressing

For the Father's Day dinner main course, you can't go wrong with tailgate wings featuring Ogre Sauce. Vary the spice level to dad's preference and double or triple the batch depending on how many people you are expecting. These classic hot wings pair perfectly with blue cheese dressing, which you can serve with carrots and celery for crunchy additions.

Griff's Toffee Ice Cream Pie

No Father's Day dinner is complete without dessert. While making an ice cream pie in the June heat may seem risky, slices of Griff's Toffee ice cream pie fly off the plate fast enough that this danger poses no threat.
