Plan Your Memorial Day Menu

Wow a crowd with over-the-top, Cheddar-stuffed Juicy Lucy Burgers, double-stacking optional.

The average person may not consider Memorial Day a huge food holiday, but as the unofficial start of summer and a long, good-weather (we hope) weekend, Memorial Day kicks off grilling season for food lovers across the country. So fire up the grill and start the summer Cooking Channel-style by mixing and matching our new, great grill-out recipes.

Start building your menu with a show-stopping burger, like this Cheddar-stuffed, double-stacked, bacon-topped Juicy Lucy Burger. The Juicy Lucy is an all-American creation, originating in 1950s Minneapolis (November 17th is Juicy Lucy Day in Minneapolis). The exact location is contested with both Matt’s Bar and 5-8 Club claiming credit for the first Juicy Lucy, but everyone agrees it was a great score for hamburger lovers everywhere.

If you like your burgers, well… shorter, browse more of our new burger recipes, from classic-done-right to bison burgers, turkey burgers, crab burgers and more.

Fries with that? While you have the grill heated up, you might as well throw on some sweet potato wedges to make grilled fries. They’re easy and tasty, smoky from the grill and sprinkled with fresh cilantro for a fresh kick.

Throw some potatoes onto the grill for quick and easy Grilled Sweet Potato Fries.

And don’t skimp on traditional picnic sides. These are the foods of summer you’ve been craving all year, like pasta salad, potato salad and coleslaw. Choose a few new summer side dish recipes to liven up your menu, starting with Roger Mooking’s superstar offering, Pasta Salad with Green Onion Dressing.

The secret ingredient in Roger's pasta salad is a sprinkling of shredded, unsweetened coconut.

What’s to drink? Mix up a few pitchers of summery sangria ahead of time, so you can sit back and relax instead of playing bartender.

Sangria is the perfect make-ahead summer drink for a crowd.

For dessert, snatch up the last of spring’s rhubarb to bake Emeril’s crunch-topped pie or Kelsey’s essential Strawberry-Rhubarb Crisp. And send guests off with a bite of nostalgia, with Chuck’s Gorilla Ice Cream Sandwiches or simple root beer floats.

This is the perfect time for Emeril's Rhubarb and Strawberry Pie, while rhubarb is still in season and strawberries are fresh. A crunchy almond crumb topping makes this pie a show-stopper.
