Top 5 Memorial Day Cookout Recipes

Posted On: May 21, 2015

From appetizers to the main event, we’ve gathered five of our most popular Memorial Day cookout recipes:

Grilled Chicken with Rosemary Skewers and Peanut Dipping Sauce

These chicken skewers were so easy to put together, we almost didn’t believe it when Nancy put them on the table. She explained that the recipe was as simple as skewer, grill and blend!

You’ll notice we used rosemary instead of traditional wooden or steal skewers. We found that the sturdiness of the rosemary allowed the chicken to cook thoroughly and of course, the extra flavor didn’t hurt. We paired the dish with a nutty sauce made of peanuts, tahini and fish sauce, which brings the right amount of umami flavor. It’s the perfect balance of salty, sweet and savory.


Tenderloin Crostini with Blue Cheese & Caramelized Onions

We’ve discussed the idea of ‘make ahead appetizers’ before, so make sure to try out our cured salmon and sablefish yucca chips! (And keep an eye out for next weeks vegetarian appetizer!)

These tenderloin crostini bites can made a day or two before you’re ready to entertain guests. The tenderloin should be cooked the day of, but can be served chilled.


Grass Fed Tenderloin Skewers

We decided to put our grass fed tenderloin on some skewers and pair it with a couple delicious, freshly made side dishes and sauces. This is a great way to turn a single tenderloin into a delicious appetizer for multiple guests.

Grass Fed Marinated Tenderloin & Herbed Goat Cheese Crostini

One of our favorite appetizers to throw together at the last minute, as tenderloin slices quite well when cold.


The Classic Burger

If you’re hosting friends or helping with last minute party planning, we’ve got one word for you: BURGERS. We understand that food can be a tricky topic when faced with feeding a large group of folks and nothing can be tastier than a good ol’ fashioned burger spread! With the right organization, burgers can be one of the most cost effective and crowd pleasing menu items out there. Simply cook up those grass-fed patties and set out a mini-buffet of toppings, it’s time for some fun!
