FATHER’S DAY GIFT IDEAS, RECIPES & STYLISH GIFT TAGS
I’ve rounded up some fabulous Father’s Day gift ideas for you to check out before you head to the store! It’s an exclusively curated list of fabulous “out-of-the-box” Father’s Day gifts that I think any man in your life will love!
Then I’m sharing two of my hubby’s favorite Father’s Day recipes that I know will be a hit with the Dads in your family too! Both are perfect “picnic” foods that transport like a dream.
The first is a fabulous French classic that I’ve “tweaked” to create my Ahi Tuna Pan Bagnat. It’s got all the classic ingredients, but with a whole new interpretation!
Next we’ve got a really versatile Gourmet German Potato Salad. It has some surprise ingredients that make this a whole new kind of German potato salad recipe! You’ll need to keep reading to find out just what those surprise ingredients are!
FATHER’S DAY GIFT TAG PDF – For Stylish Gift Giving!
I’ve created four different styles of Father’s Day Gift Tags for all your gift giving needs. They’re really masculine and quite stylish, if I do say so myself!
It’s just a one-page download to print out all four designs, and you don’t need a color printer!
After you’ve seen the hand-picked curated list of Father’s Day gifts I’ve chosen for your special guy, you’ll definitely need these gift tags!
AHI TUNA PAN BAGNAT – Twisted into a new classic!
This recipe has been interpreted in a whole new way, using thick tuna steaks rubbed with herbes de Provence, instead of the customary oil-packed jarred tuna so common in Europe.
Of course it’s still stuffed with layers of hard-cooked egg, juicy, ripe tomatoes and a fabulous olive-caper relish that takes this sandwich right over-the-top!
What’s different about the olive relish is that, I’ve chosen balsamic vinegar for the acid, instead of using red wine vinegar. I like the sweetness that the balsamic lends to the finished relish, despite it’s dark coloration.
If that’s truly an issue for you, opt for a white balsamic vinegar like the one I use in the Gourmet German Potato Salad. You can’t have brown potato salad, now can you?
I’ve also foregone layering whole roasted red peppers, as I don’t like the way they tend to “slip” when you bite into the sandwich.
So what I’ve done is cut them into strips (better yet, just buy them that way in a jar!) and added them to the olive relish. It makes the finished sandwich much easier to eat.
Once the Ahi Tuna Pan Bagnat is assembled, this recipe follows the same exact procedure. It gets tightly wrapped, then weighed down (I use my cast iron skillet) and chilled for several hours before eating.
Like I said, perfect for picnics! It can last up to 4-6 hours after assembly, so it’s a great make-ahead choice for a Father’s Day lunch.

GOURMET GERMAN POTATO SALAD
This is a fabulous “riff” on the traditional German Potato Salad recipe.
First of all, I’ve roasted whole baby multi-colored potatoes to a crispy outside and fluffy inside. Then added all kinds of yum factor with thick slices of fennel, sweet bell pepper strips, shallots and even corn-on-the-cob!
All roasted in extra-virgin olive oil and seasoned with salt and pepper, this combo makes for a colorful finished salad platter.
ROASTING MAKES ALL THE DIFFERENCE
The roasting intensifies the vegetables, bringing out their depth of flavor, like no other cooking method can.
To top it all off, taking this salad into “gourmet” territory is the replacement of the original recipe’s bacon, with crispy proscuitto bundles.
Yeah, Gourmet German Potato Salad is one fabulous recipe, especially when you know it can be served hot, warm or chilled! How versatile it that?
