Grilled Sandwiches For And By Dads: Classic Vs. Creative (RECIPES)

Dads, it's your day. And while we'd love for you to kick back and simply take it all in, today's dinner (or brunch) is going to require a little work.

If it's any consolation, even POTUS feels your pain, as do the dads and all-star chefs we tapped to provide you with inspiration.

But the kudos you'll get when your family tastes the grilled goodness we've rounded up here, will be worth every minute you spend at the grill -- trust us.

Here, chef G. Garvin culls his favorite elements from a road trip across the U.S., creating a kicked-up version of a perennial fave (the modern classic), while chef Bryant Terry prepares a vegan variation that's so full of flavor you won't even miss the meat (creative genius).

Grab your tools and make us proud, papas! Then tell us: Classic or creative? Which recipe gets your vote?
