Man Food: Father's Day Recipes That Aren't Just Steaks And Burgers

Dad, we feel for you. We know you love burgers, steaks, mashed potatoes and all the other things we always try to feed you for Father's Day. This year, we've decided to work a little harder. We dug deep into our recipe archives to come up with some manly menu ideas to get us all out of the Father's Day rut. On the menu this weekend: serious spice, indulgent seafood and a heavy hand with the bacon.

Sorry, salads -- we adore you, but you have no place here. We'll see you next week.
