Fire up the barbecue and celebrate dear old dad this week with a summery menu starring flavor-packed, all-natural bratwurst sausages to throw on the grill, plus Beecher’s smoked Flagship cheese and housemade smoky baked beans to serve alongside. These cookout classics are also accented by a bevy of fresh produce like mixed heirloom cherry tomatoes, Romanesco and purple scallions, plus fresh-baked Pain au Levain bread, F&L raspberry vinaigrette and our signature summer fruit cake mix. To Dad!
Here are a few recipe ideas for the week:
