Chicken And Vegetable Skewers
Short on time and still hoping to impress your guests with something they’ll be sure to love? Chicken and vegetable skewers are the perfect option. Not only is this BBQ option hearty, but it’s also a healthy option that people will like as well.
Chicken and vegetable skewers are as easy to make as it sounds Begin by taking a 12” skewer and poke it through an appropriately sized piece of chicken. Then add some of your favorite veggies - like bell peppers and onions. Alternate back and forth with chicken and vegetables, and every bite will be something that your guests love.
Everyone loves a tasty burger on Memorial Day. But if you want to surprise your guests with something new, here it is.
While making your burgers from scratch, throw in small cubes of cheese with the meat. Add in an additional egg to help the meat stick together, and go about making your patties as your normally would. As the meat cooks on the grill, so will the cheese that’s inside. While most grillers will add a piece of cheese on top of a burger, a real grill master thinks of innovative ways like this to make something new.
**Pro Tip** Add chopped up onions, seasoning, and other mix-ins to the patties, and your guests will hardly need to add condiments.
Cheesecake - The American Way
Celebrate the holiday with a tasty cheesecake that everyone will be sure to enjoy. This no bake cheesecake is good enough on its own, but even better because of the toppings we’ll add.
To begin, mix mascarpone cheese, whipped cream, and cream cheese until it makes a typically cheesecake consistency. Then you’ll pour that over a graham cracker crust, and let it sit in the fridge until it’s time to serve. But wait, first add a few rows of strawberries to make it look like the stripes on the american flag. Leave room in the upper left-hand corner, and add blueberries as tasty stars. This no bake cheesecake will be a hit at your BBQ, because it’ll be as tasty as it is festive.
If you are having a BBQ for Memorial Day, you had better have some menu options in mind now. If you don’t, then keep any of the choices on this list handy. Not only will you impress your friends, but you’ll fill their bellies as well.
