Memorial Day is a sure sign that summer is finally here!

So this year while you’re chillin’ on the patio, grilling some grub, and enjoying frosty beverages, instead of serving up the same old hot dogs and chips, try these 10 must have Memorial Day noms for your big weekend barbecue!

1. Grilled Ham and Cheese Pull Apart Sandwich Loaf

Feed a hungry crowd with just one loaf by making this ooey, gooey, melty ham and cheese sammie right on the grill!

2. Pasta Salad Everyone Will Eat

Soggy pasta salad full of stinky raw onions, or gloppy mayo not your cup of tea? Then serve this refreshing salad that incorporates sweet grapes, crunchy cucumber, and tender chicken in a light poppy seed dressing. Bonus points for adding fun shaped noodles and making it ahead of time!

3. White Wine & Elderflower Sangria

Sweet elderflower liquor mixes perfectly with fresh berries, grapes, and pear in this perfect hot weather cocktail.

4. Tortellini Kabobs

Try this clever twist on the kabob by stacking tortellini with your veggies! Cool Italian dressing will add a nice zing!

5. Pink Lemonade Jello Shots

Save those lemon rinds for super cute pink lemonade gelatin shots!

6. Stuffed Burgers

Burgers are classic barbecue fare. That smell, the sizzle…there’s nothing better than a juicy, meaty grilled burger, unless of course it’s been stuffed with a surprise! Cheese, mushrooms, corn… try any of these special ingredients to stuff your next burger, or use them as inspiration to come up with your own creations!

7. Beergarita

Drink up the fabulous flavors of the classic margarita with tequila, lime, and salt but with a special beer twist!

8. Jalapeno Poppers

Spicy, creamy, and wrapped in bacon? These grilled poppers will be gobbled up in no time!

9. Raspberry Beer Hard Lemonade

Raspberry beer + lemonade = an incredibly easy and delicious summer drink. Add a few fresh raspberries for an extra tasty garnish!

10. Ultimate Summer Picnic Punch

Lemonade is the picnic beverage of choice, but what if it was fresh watermelon-strawberry lemonade? For a touch of flair serve it up in the leftover watermelon rinds!

So grab a lawn chair, a beergarita or two, and enjoy the long weekend!
