Some Father's Day weekend ideas:
The 25th Annual Pismo Beach Classic Car Show
Hop in the car, and take a drive over the hill to enjoy the weekend by the sea.
I've said it once and I'll say it again: Run, don't walk for your brunch reservation at the Vintage Press. My friend David stirs up a memorable mimosa... Or if dad's not into bubbly, the Gin Orange Press is equally fabulous.
We all know the way to a man's heart is through his stomach... What better way to say, "I love you, Dad" than to make him something? I recommend Blue Cheese Burgers (recipe below).
Blue Cheese Burgers
- 2 pounds ground chuck
- 1 pound ground sirloin
- 1/2 cup seasoned dry bread crumbs
- 1/4 cup steak sauce
- 3 extra-large eggs
- 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
- 3/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- 8 to 10 hamburger buns
- 8 ounces blue cheese, sliced
- Arugula and sliced tomatoes, for serving, optional
Carefully mix the meats, bread crumbs, steak sauce, eggs, salt, and pepper with the tines of a fork, but do not mash them. Lightly form hamburger patties and press lightly into shape.
Prepare the grill.
Cook the hamburgers for 4 minutes on 1 side, then turn and cook 3 minutes on the other side for medium-rare. Remove to a plate and cover with aluminum foil. Allow the hamburgers to rest for 5 minutes. Meanwhile, grill the buns, cut side down, for 1 minute, until toasted. Place a hamburger and a slice of blue cheese in each bun, plus arugula and tomato, if desired, and serve hot.
Have a wonderful and happy weekend,
