Memorial Day Must-have Menu

Memorial Day Weekend, the unofficial kick-off to summer, and our first chance of the season to fire up the grill and cook up our favorite warm-weather meals. We’ve put together a list of our favorite fares for the season of sun.

Star-Spangled Starters

Light up your appetizer spread with a patriotic cheese board. We used a metal star cutter and thick-sliced provolone and muenster cheese to give our patriotic cheese boards their festive look. Whether you are celebrating with a large group or it’s just you, charcuterie and cheese boards always present well and taste delicious. Make sure to pair local seasonal fruit and veggies with crackers, meats, and cheeses that your guests (and you) enjoy.

Summer grilling calls for simplified meals that are big on taste but short on prep time. This trio of burgers does not disappoint. We’ve included beef, chicken, and turkey burgers to give your backyard BBQ an elevated flavor profile.
