{Tips & Tricks} Memorial Day Recipe Roundup

It’s Friday which means it’s officially the start of the long-awaited Memorial Day weekend! Clean your grills and pack your beach bags…it’s the start of summer! I’m sure many of you have barbeques and outdoor activities planned for this long weekend. My fingers are crossed that rainy weather doesn’t pay us a visit so that I can enjoy some fun in the sun.

With the help of my foodie friends, I was able to come up with a great list of dishes to serve this Memorial Day. I haven’t decided what I’ll be serving on Memorial Day…there are so many options! If you’re having family and friends over for Memorial Day, be sure to peruse these options before creating your grocery shopping list. There are so many great dishes listed that will keep your guests coming back for more!

Memorial Day Recipe Roundup



Main Courses

Side Dishes



Whether you’re golfing, boating, picnicking, gardening, or spending time with family and friends, please remember what this holiday is truly about: a commemoration to U.S. men and women who died while serving their country. Thoughts and prayers need to be extended to those who have passed, as well as to the family and friends of the deceased. These men and women were strong, loyal and sacrificed big and small to help their country.

I wish each and every one of you a safe and fantastic Memorial Day weekend!

    What a super list! I was thinking something along the lines of BBQ pizza. I might give grilling the pizza a shot this weekend, thanks for the recipe Jen!

    What a great roundup of holiday recipes, and how nice you are to include me in it. I'm particularly smitten with the tomato bruschetta and watermelon cooler, both of which just say summer to me. Many thanks for sharing.
