Celebrate Father's Day with a Cheesesteak Feast

Father's Day is just around the corner. Still thinking what to get for your dad?

Making Dad feel special on Father's Day has always been somewhat perplexing. Should you get him another tie? Novelty cufflinks? A new garden tool? Whatever you decide, just remember this… On Father's Day, one of the things that Dad enjoys most is spending time together as a family. What better way to help celebrate this than with a delicious and manly cheesesteak?

Here's a recipe for a mouth-watering, better-for-you cheesesteak on Multi-Grain Flatbread, courtesy of Kontos Foods. Following the recipe is an additional bit of humor for kids and their Dads. Hope it helps make your Father’s Day extra meaningful this year.

Multi-Grain Flatbread Cheesesteak
(makes 4 sandwiches)


4 pieces of Kontos Multi-Grain Flatbread
1 lb. sliced London broil, rubbed in butter or olive oil, sprinkled with salt and pepper
1 large sliced red onion, brushed with olive oil or sprayed with cooking spray
4-8 slices of your favorite cheese, such as Swiss or provolone


  1. Slice red onion in 1/4-inch slices, brush with oil and grill.
  2. Grill London broil to taste; let meat rest, then slice thinly with sharp knife; keep warm under foil.
  3. Preheat the Kontos Multi-Grain Flatbread (or any other favorite Kontos flatbread or pita bread) on a grill, 15-20 seconds on each side. Cut bread into two halves.
  4. Layer the meat and cheese on half slice. Put in hot oven or under broiler for 2 minutes until cheese melts.
  5. Place warmed half of flatbread on top to create sandwich.
  6. Enjoy with Dad!

Here is a little view on relationships for kids and their Dads everywhere … “Our relationship with dad through the years” (author unknown):

At age 5… “Daddy, I love you”
At age 8… “Whatever”
At age 10…. “Dad, don’t embarrass me”
At age 13…. “Dad, you’re so annoying”
At age 16…. “Dad, you don’t know anything”
At age 18…. “I’m leaving this house”
At age 25…. “Dad, you were right”
At age 30…. “I want to go visit my Dad”
At age 50…. “I don’t want to lose my Dad”
At age 60…. “I miss my Dad every day”
At age 70…. “I would give anything to be able to spend just one more day with my Dad”

Happy Father’s Day!
