Father’s Day Lunch or Dinner Idea
Every dad is on a quest to create the perfect sandwich. This year, celebrate the dads in your life by creating a festive Father’s Day sandwich bar! You can customize the sandwich fixins to YOUR famile’s perferences.
How to Make a Father’s Day Sandwich Bar
Set up a buffet table to display all of the sandwich ingredients. A long table is preferred. I improvised by creating a make-shift table out of 2 pieces of lumber on top of two of our barstools. I added a tablecloth to the top and you can’t tell that it wasn’t a real table! Add some flowers for a POP of color.
Arrange Sandwich Toppings on Platters or Cutting Boards
Divide different types of toppings and arrange them on separate platters. I used wood cutting boards for most of the toppings. Different topping ideas for a sandwich bar are — breads, produce, cheeses, meats and sauces.
You can customize any of the sandwich fixins to the people attending YOUR sandwich bar. This is a large list of items. You won’t need to create a sandwich bar with all of these items. I wanted to share as many ideas as possible to give you an idea of what could be included!
