There’s no better time for a barbecue than Memorial Day weekend. Though a little earlier than the official first day of summer on the calendar, Memorial Day weekend is the unofficial kickoff to the summer months. White clothes come back into style across the nation. Seasonal water parks open their gates. It’s time for fun in the sun. If you are hosting the family party this year, here are a few menu ideas.
Good Old Fashioned BBQ
There’s nothing more American than grilling all beef burgers and hot dogs and then applying all of your favorite toppings. Of course, you can’t forget classic sides like baked beans, potato salad, and roasted veggies. This menu is sure to please.
West Coast Barbecue
For an all West Coast affair, you have to elevate your protein game. Swap out burgers and dogs for skirt steak and boneless chicken breast. These leaner options pair perfectly with a fresh spinach salad, stuffed mushrooms, and garlic bread. You get a little bit more of an upscale feel and a less heavy meal for guests.
Nothing quite says Texas like grill tri-tip and pulled pork that has been slow-cooked. Roasted potatoes, macaroni salad, or some baked pasta make great sides. You can also substitute macaroni salad for mac and cheese for added richness and aside the kids will really want to dive into.
