'Tis the season! Fire up the grill with some burgers, hot dogs and get that coleslaw and macaroni salad ready. Invite some of your closest friends over and just enjoy the day with good food, drinks, music and fun.

Memorial Day is a great time to make some delicious new recipes and share them with all our family and friends.

These are our top menu picks that will leave everyone wanting seconds.

1. Italian Pasta Salad

What BBQ or outdoor function would be complete without the perfect pasta salad? Make your pasta to perfection and then it’s time to add your own creativity to the dish. The key to a good pasta salad is getting all the mix-ins right. Add your favorite oil, flavorings, and additional toppings such as cheese or vegetables! By having a variety of flavors, this will be perfect for anyone.

2. Grilled Pork Chops

These may not be your traditional burger or hot dog but they’re just as tasty! Marinate your pork chops in your favorite seasonings whether it’s garlic or honey and be sure to let them sit for 30 minutes-1 hour. Once they’re marinated it’s time for the grill master to take over and cook them just right for everyone to enjoy!

3. Bacon-Wrapped Hot Dogs

Why just grill up normal hot dogs when you can wrap them in bacon! This unique twist on a classic BBQ favorite will leave your guests wondering why they didn’t think of it first. Whether you’re big on hot dogs or not we guarantee you won’t be able to resist this delicious treat.

4. Potato Salad

There’s no twist here on this Memorial Day favorite. A good potato salad starts with some perfectly boiled potatoes so you can then add in all the mixings you need. Get your hard boiled eggs, celery, mayonnaise, and a lot of seasons so you can make this dish to perfection.

5. Street Corn

Regular style corn on the cob is great… but why not spice it up! Street corn has everything that’s great about regular corn with more of a kick. Some sour cream, cheese, garlic, and lime is all you need to give your corn on the cob an extra edge this holiday.

6. Grilled Peaches

Dessert anyone? We’ve got something that’s way better than just ice cream or ice pops. Cut your peaches in half and let the grill do the rest. Grill your peaches only shortly until they’re nice and warm with those beautiful grill marks. Chop up the halve and serve it with some ice cream for something refreshing and delicious.

7. Shrimp Salad Rolls

Seafood lovers this is just the thing for your Memorial Day. By having the perfect hot dog roll filled with a delicious shrimp salad, it’s still in the BBQ spirit but a little more refreshing. Get your shrimp salad with the perfect amount of lemon, butter, mayonnaise, and other seasonings and you’re gonna be sure to enjoy this seafood masterpiece.
