It’s the perfect time to get outside with the whole crew to honor all of those who fought and served our incredible nation. What is the best thing to celebrate with? A large spread of 30+ Delicious Memorial Day Recipes!

This list is packed with many dishes that are perfect for this occasion. There are pasta salads a plenty for your afternoon picnic. If you decide to go camping , try my BBQ Chicken Foil Packs! They’re perfect for the outdoors and don’t lack flavor. If you want a formal celebration, try my Creamy Pasta Primavera. All who gather around your table will feel the love from this elegant pasta dish.

WHAT APPETIZERS SHOULD I SERVE ON MEMORIAL DAY?

Most parties for this holiday are in casual fashion. Guests come and go as they please, and that means savory goodies should be ready for the grabbing. One app that is sure to go over well are my Baked Mozzarella Sticks. Breaded cheese with marinara for dipping? Yes, please!

If burgers are on the grill this year, then you’ll need a side of Garlic Parmesan French Fries. They are delicious and full of flavor that will have you licking your fingers as you eat them. If you want to serve hearty finger food, try either my Cheeseburger Sliders, or Western Cheeseburger Sliders. They are perfect for assembling ahead and having out on a platter for guests to peruse.

ARE THERE DESSERT RECIPES FOR MEMORIAL DAY?

I have plenty of sweet treats to show everyone that extra love this weekend. Everyone loves a cookie but you’ll have everybody salivating over my Chocolate Chip Pudding Cookies. They are extra soft and packed with rich chocolate chips.

If you are looking for that ‘wow’ factor dessert this year, try assembling my Strawberry Chocolate Pound Cake Trifle. Jaws will drop to the floor with the presentation of this dessert. If you need to beat the heat with a cooler treat, whip up a batch of my Frozen Lemonade. Perfect for a weekend spent by the pool, and I promise it will keep everyone cool.
