Memorial Day is a time for observance and remembrance, and with that typically comes time spent with friends and family. A long weekend well spent often includes a backyard grilling session in some capacity — and we’re here to help you plan your Memorial Day menu no matter what your plans are.
Here’s what to throw on the grill based on your weekend plans:
After a day in the sun: Chicken Wings
Flavor packed and relatively light, chicken wings or drumsticks are an awesome way to end a day in the sun. Whether you’re heading to the pool, beach, lake, or soaking up some rays in your yard, chicken wings won’t weigh you down. Serve a big plate of wings with sides of celery, carrots, cucumber salad, and potato chips.
If friends are coming over: King Crab Legs
When the days are warm, there’s nothing like gathering around a big table and cracking crab legs with friends. If you have a crew with you this Memorial Day weekend, grill your crab legs in batches and serve alongside corn on the cob, potato salad, and plenty of melted butter. Sent to you straight from the docks in Bristol Bay, this spread is sure to impress and satisfy everyone at the table.
Family in town for the long weekend: USDA Prime NY Strip
The quintessential grilling steak, a USDA NY Strip is a savory, crowd-pleasing favorite. Our cuts are oozing with rich flavor and marbled just enough to sizzle and sear to perfection. Serve your steaks with mashed potatoes, rolls, and an easy side salad.
Getting together with the neighbors: Grass-fed Burgers
You can’t go wrong with a cookout classic! Kick your cookout up a notch by using premium grass-fed, grass-finished ground beef. The nutrition content and distinct flavor are tough to beat, and our 80% lean, ready-to-cook frozen ground beef patties virtually eliminate the prep process. Give your burgers supporting acts of sweet potato fries, macaroni salad, and a table full of burger fixings.
Hopefully, you’ve found some inspiration for your holiday nosh. Whatever your plans and whatever ends up on your grill, we hope you enjoy your long weekend and take time to remember those who have given their lives in the name of freedom.
