Memorial Day Menu

Memorial Day Menu

It’s almost Memorial Day weekend!

Memorial Day really kicks off summer for our family.  Between Memorial Day and Labor Day, it’s all about pool parties and family time.  I’m taking last year’s Memorial Day Menu and adding a few new things.  It’s  a menu designed for a family gathering of four or it can be multiplied and serve a large party too (or if you’re going to a pot luck, just take what you need from this list!).  The best part?  It’s simple, but crowd pleasing.

Red, white, blue and delicious!

First up…

Start your Memorial Day off right with my Red, White and Blueberry French Toast.  You use blueberry bagels as your bread and make a quick strawberry sauce to go down on top.  Festive and yummy!

Need a little appetizer?  No worries…

My Bacon Wrapped Smokies will be the hit of the party.  Seriously.  Make a double batch.  I’m telling you…you’ll be mad if you don’t!

And/or you could make my Baked Crab & Artichoke Dip.  Friends will flock to this one!

Need a side?  I have you covered…

My Mama’s Corn Salad is a MUST for all summer get-togethers.  It’s not a party until this is on my plate.

Once you try these BBQ Green Beans you won’t go back to boring old regular ones.  The best part about this version is that the beans cook in the slow cooker…one less thing to mess with during the party.

This Tortellini Pasta Salad could be a meal in itself…or a delicious side too.

Savory Watermelon Salad

My Savory Watermelon Salad is the perfect side to any summer gathering.  I’m pretty obsessed with this recipe.

And for the main course?  You gotta do something on the grill, right?  Grilling equals summer holiday party!  Here are some of my favorite grilled entrees…

Spinach & Feta Burgers

Burger Choice #1 is my Spinach & Feta Burger.  If you’re wanting a turkey burger on the menu, this one’s for YOU!

Meatloaf2BBurgers

And burger choice #2 is my Meatloaf Burgers!  The sauce is what makes it a meatloaf burger…in honor of Andrew’s favorite meal (meatloaf), I made it into a burger.

Or if burgers aren’t for you, how about salmon?

My Pineapple Teriyaki Salmon is so good this time of year or…

Grilled Shrimp Tacos.

And something sweet to finish things off (that’s festive too!)…

…my Red, White and Blue Trifle.  I love that you make this in advance…that way on party day, you just pop it out of the fridge and serve.

Strawberry & Blueberry Slab Pie

My Strawberry & Blueberry Slab Pie feeds a crowd!  Plus, it’s so easy to prepare!

Or you can try…

Patriotic Pops

…my Patriotic Pops.  Kids will go nuts over these!!

Red, White & Blue Mix

One final treat…my  Red, White & Blue Mix .

Need a little more inspiration?  Check out my Red, White and Blue Pinterest Board!  I just love pinning things all summer long :).

Pick your favorite recipes, make your grocery list, shop and get ready for a fun filled weekend!

Summer is almost here friends!!

    I’m having trouble finding coconut ice cream, gelato or sherbet. What brand do you use?

      I use whatever I can find. It’s seasonal though, so maybe it’s a little too early where you are? I almost always find it in the pints and not gallons.
