Grilling for Good Ol’ Dad

June 7, 2018

Father’s Day grilling made delicious thanks to mushrooms!

Summer is in full swing and we are moving out of the kitchen and onto the patio! If you’re like us, most of this season is spent outdoors with friends and family. And don’t forget one of summer’s biggest celebrations no, not the Fourth of July we’re talking about Father’s Day!

This year, skip the long hours of unsuccessful shopping and give Dad something that is a guaranteed win: a delicious grilled meal (because we all know the way to a father’s heart is through his stomach)!

Show dad how much you care with a Father’s Day grilling recipe you can make together, like juicy veal sliders. These mini burgers come with a twist called The Blend, which means before firing up the grill, simply blend the ground meat with finely chopped mushrooms to form your patty. Top your grilled sliders with smoked gouda cheese, rich caramelized onions, and more meaty mushrooms before serving on fluffy potato rolls. Dad is in for some seriously delicious flavor bombs!
