Celebrate Father’s Day in True Dad Style: On the Grill

Superhero. Comedian. Mr. fix-it. Trivia expert. Whatever you know him as, your dad deserves to feel special this Father’s Day. What better way to celebrate than with a delicious grilled dinner and some family time in the summer sun?

Burgers are an obvious choice for a celebratory cookout. You can dress them up or keep them simple but, best of all, you can use The Blend! Which blended burger style matches your dad?

  • Thrill-Seeking Dad: Your dad craves interesting flavors, and The Dojo Burger leaves no stone unturned. It’s a seasoned blended patty topped with avocado, egg, bacon, onion rings and cilantro aioli.
  • Classic Dad: If “dad jokes,” lawn care and checking the thermostat are among your dad’s favorite things, we bet he’ll also love a classic blended burger.
  • Cool Dad: This burger, topped with brie, zesty relish and deep fried sweet pickles, is fully loaded and ready to party, just like Dad.
  • Handy Dad: He’s no fuss, no frills and has an appreciation for simplicity. When it comes to burgers, he wants just that: a burger! Grill up a Blended Bison and Mushroom Burger.

Rethink the burger as you know it and watch as Matt Pittman, dad and pitmaster, cooks up country fried blended hamburger steaks in the video below. His comfort dish is just as tasty in June as it was in December.

“The Blend is an incredibly tasty way to get vegetables into my diet. I have always enjoyed sautéed mushrooms with my steak, and adding mushrooms into my burger tastes even better.”
