Most dads don’t really say ‘I love you’ to their child, but what they do is express their love through actions. For this Father’s Day, let’s do the same for dad, something special like a full-3-course meal for him. Read on to see what the Perfect Father’s Day Menu looks like.
Ah, Father’s Day—the perfect time to honor fathers out there. We often forget the sacrifices and contributions of our father in our lives. And sometimes, the meaning of Father’s Day is more than the commercialization we see today. Often holidays are days we think about giving gifts. Although there is nothing wrong with celebrating your dad with gifts for Father’s Day, we must not forget the true meaning of the special day. Father’s Day is important to take time to reflect on our fathers and grandfathers and forefathers who came before us.
Usually, people talk about a mother’s love and affection in which a father’s love often gets ignored. A mother’s love is talked about repeatedly everywhere, yet what we fail to acknowledge is the strength of a father which often goes unnoticed. Well, the father, as one of the key figures in our lives, is someone who was always there for us. So, when we think about a father figure, who has sacrificed plenty for the family, we believe that cooking them a meal is one of the sincerest forms a child can show their love and appreciation to their fathers. As such, we love to take this time to share with you the Perfect Father’s Day Menu to surprise him with.
A Hearty Breakfast for a Champion.
We will kick things off first, a scrumptious breakfast to get him ready for the day. We recommend this dad-approved favorite: Cheese Baked Eggs Sausage.
This one bowl breakfast (brunch) Cheese Baked Eggs Sausage is bound to make your dad’s Father’s Day morning amazing—a sign of good things to come. This hearty breakfast comprises of all the things your father is sure to love: amazing eggs with runny yolks, savory chicken sausage (feel free to swap with any other kind of sausage that he will love), cheesy mashed potatoes, and crispy French baguettes. With a sprinkling of fresh thyme to make it even more wholesome too. This would be so much perfect with a cup of coffee or tea.
But that’s not all, we have added our Rich’s Double Cream into the cheesy mashed potatoes to make it smoother and creamier. When done right, you won’t find lumps in your mashed potatoes! Instead, Rich’s Double Cream ensures that you enjoy a smooth and creamy mash with the parmesan cheese. Meanwhile, for the French baguette, skip all the extra steps like breaking an egg, our Rich’s French Toast Topping lets you enjoy a sweet and crispy French baguette in no time!
Rich’s Double Cream is a multi-purpose dairy blend that is versatile—it can be used for culinary, pastry, and beverage applications. It has an excellent fresh cream taste, a thick consistency (which means shorter reduction time for your sauces), a great acid tolerance (sauces and soups will not separate and split), and heat stability that is good.

Rich’s French Toast Topping is ready-to-use French Toast solution that eliminates the hassle of you preparing the recipe from scratch. All you need to do is thaw, dip, and bake. This topping can also be applied in various applications for you to create your signature menu—one that fits into any time of the day, from breakfast, lunch, dinner, to snack and desserts. Serve it sweet or savory, that’s your preference! Want to find out how you can prepare the Easiest French Toast? Read this.
A Scrumptious Lunch for the Winner.
Sandwiches are a fantastic to munch into, and when done right, they can be incredibly filling and satisfying. And it’s the perfect meal to serve while having wonderful conversations with your father. Here’s a recipe for a delicious Chic Cheesy Toast that dad will love!
Just imagine dad sinking his teeth into this juicy and scrumptious sandwich. Undeniably, the pairing of melty cheese and grilled chicken is a classic combo that can’t be beat, especially when you are approaching it with our special Red Sauce. Fair warning though, the special Red Sauce in this recipe has ingredients such as chili paste, red spice paste, and also our Rich’s Double Cream. The important step in preparing this sandwich is making sure that dad gets a generous portion of the special Red Sauce. So, go ahead and be sure that he gets plenty of it when you pour it over the grilled chicken (oh-so-simple, with just salt and pepper).
With the leftover Rich’s French Toast Topping (if you have made the Cheese Baked Eggs Sausage for breakfast), give this sandwich an extra oomph and crispiness to the toast with it. And hey! Not only is this Chic Cheesy Toast easy to make, if your dad loves cooking, get him involved in the process too. What dad can resist helping out his kid, particularly when it comes to cooking chicken? Just don’t make him do the dishes after, that’s your job!
A Memorable Dinner for the One Who Sacrifices.
You’re going to want to make your dad a dinner as special as he is. For dinner, we think your father would want to cut into a gorgeous piece of lamb. Presenting to you, this Garlic Thyme Lemon Lamb Rack is delicious and will make dad go over the moon.
If you have never made lamb before, starting with lamb racks is a great idea, and makes for a succulent, flavorful meal. Infusing them with garlic and herbs is a timeless preparation and one that’s not hard to do. Lamb racks also happen to be a great cut to cook if you have any lamb skeptics at your dining table—you may just make them fall in love with lamb meat with this Garlic Thyme Lemon Lamb Rack.
For this recipe, you can marinate the lamb racks ahead of time from a few hours up to overnight. This garlic and herb-rubbed lamb chops recipe features a classic combination of flavors, which really enhances the lamb’s natural goodness. Meanwhile, the garlic thyme lemon sauce enhanced with our Rich’s Double Cream to give it a lovely richness and depth makes this dish even more amazing. This recipe can be definitely pulled off easily during the week (if you want some time to perfect the dish), and it definitely feels special—and offers a beautiful presentation—to serve on the table to commemorate Father’s Day.
