Memorial Day Recipes

Posted in Holiday Recipes on 27.05.10 by Smart Ingredients

Happy Memorial Day weekend! Thanks to no snow days here in the Midwest this year (a rarity!) Memorial Day means more than just a day off in honor of remembrance. This year, for us and for many, it truly kicks off summer as schools wind down and/or let out. As you remember our troops, whether with a family gathering, or a barbecue following a memorial parade, we bring you some easy, but delicious and fun Red, White & Blue recipes and picnic recipes for your event.

Red, White & Blue Skewers

  • Wood skewers
  • Blueberries (as large and firm as you can find), approximately 40
  • Firm watermelon (3/4-inch squares), approximately 40
  • Feta, or other white block cheese, approximately 8 ounces, cut into small cubes

Thread berries, melon and cheese onto skewers, repeat until all but one and a half inches of the skewer are full.

Red, White and Blue Stuffed Burgers

Ingredients (serves 8, and is easily doubled or tripled)

  • 3 pounds ground beef
  • 1 tablespoon Montreal Steak Seasoning
  • 2 cups diced cherry tomatoes
  • 1 cup blue cheese
  • 1/2 cup finely diced white onion
  • 8 hamburger buns
  • toppings of your choice
    Season beef with seasoning. Form into 16 thin patties. Combine tomatoes, cheese and onions. Place a small scoop in the center of each of 8 patties, and flatten out. Top with remaining patties, and crimp edges . Grill to desired doneness, being careful when turning.
