Since yesterday was Father’s Day, I’m going to deviate from my usual blog posts about restaurants I’ve checked out and instead make you all drool over a meal my brother and I put together for the big man. When I think of Father’s Day, I think of golf, barbecues and beer. So, that’s what he got. A little U.S. Open action, bleu cheese-stuffed burgers, grilled corn and beer.

We cooked up some delicious burgers stuffed with bleu cheese and topped them off with bacon and caramelized onions. This wasn’t just your ordinary ground beef either. We spruced it up with eggs, breadcrumbs and other spices to give it an incredible flavor. These burgers were juicy and enormous.

We also cooked up some Mexican grilled corn. This corn was grilled then brushed with a mixture of butter, garlic and lime juice, and fished off with a pile of feta cheese. (Cotija cheese is usually used but feta is a close-to-equal substitute.)

And right now I’m wishing there were leftovers!
