Memorial Day Recipes

I can’t believe Memorial Day weekend is almost here. Normally we celebrate the holiday in Las Vegas. This year we will be grilling and chillin’ at home all weekend long!

Today I am sharing 15 recipe ideas for your Memorial Day celebration. I’ve got main dishes, side dishes, and desserts. There are grilling recipes, slow cooker recipes, casseroles, and make-ahead dishes. SO many choices. There is definitely something for everyone on this list.

I can’t decide which of these yummy recipes we are going to make. Maybe the ribs and cowboy beans. Maybe burgers and hot dogs. Definitely the Smoked Queso dip – YUM!

I hope you enjoy the recipes you try!! Now let the countdown begin to the long holiday weekend!
