When it comes to planning a Father’s Day meal, we’re not above the cliches. Grilled? Yes. Burgers? Surely. Bacon? Of course. Why? Because these recipes are sturdy, reliable and super-fun — just like Dad.

Cinnamon muffins will always have a soft spot in our hearts, but we bet Dad will totally make room for their savory cousins, filled with all of his breakfast favorites.

If Dad wants to spend the entirety of his special day in front of the grill, so be it. Plus, these melty morning tacos celebrate summer produce at its peak: Tomatoes and corn taste best right now.
