Fish sauce steak platter with green pepper and scallion slaw

Food has always been the way to the heart in our family and, with Father's Day upon us, I have three great dad-friendly recipes to help you celebrate the day.

Most of our family celebrations start with breakfast in bed, and my hole-in-the-bread eggs are always a winner. Egg in a hole, eggs in a basket - whatever you call it, this simple method of adding an egg to a piece of fried bread in the pan is a sure-fire hit with kids and a real favourite in our house. It was my dad's speciality on a lazy Sunday morning to distract my brother and I while mum got a lie-in. The best part is dipping the crisp, fried bread into the runny yoke, one of life's simple pleasures.

Since arriving back in Ireland, I am just blown away by the quality of produce and most of our meals these days rely on simple ingredients assembled on a plate rather than anything particularly fussy in terms of cooking methods. It doesn't take too much time or effort to create something delicious. And so I have included an easy-yet-impressive steak supper. Really good meat from the butcher, paired with a fiery Thai-style sauce and a simple vegetable slaw that you can make while the meat rests.
