Father’s Day Cookout Recipes

Fire up the barbecue and gather round to celebrate dear old dad this week with a summery menu highlighted by our smoky baked beans and house-blend dry grill rub, plus flavorful, all-natural bratwurst sausages to throw on the grill. These American classics are also accented by a bevy of fresh produce like rainbow Swiss chard, purple scallions and summer squash, plus a fresh-baked baguette and all the ingredients for a summery strawberry shortcake dessert. To Dad!

Here are a few recipe ideas for the week:
