Memorial Day kicks off barbecue season so to help you plan your Memorial Day barbecue, I’m sharing some of my favorite barbecue recipes and some other Memorial Day recipe ideas I’d like to try this weekend too.

This Memorial Day I’ll be cooking up one of my favorite burgers, Queso Bacon Burgers with Avocado Salsa.

My daughter likes sliders instead of full size burgers and I plan on giving Cinnamon & Spice’s Easy Homemade Hamburger Buns recipe a try. Reeni’s also got a burger recipe that I need to try, Homemade Healthier Big Macs.

Bacon Wrapped Cheese Hot Dog

If some in your crowd prefer hot dogs, you might want to grill up some Bacon Wrapped Cheese Hot Dogs. Or, how about a Loaded Hot Dog from How Sweet It Is with white cheddar cheese, juicy garlic mushrooms, honey caramelized onions, and crispy fried bacon.

Don’t forget to add a side of Perfect French Fries from Sweet Basil or baked Sweet Potato Fries from Vintage Mixer to go with your dogs.

BBQ Chicken Kebabs with a Spicy Bacon Rub

If you’d rather have chicken than burgers and dogs, these BBQ Chicken Kebabs with a Spicy Bacon Rub are pretty irresistbile. Or, Balsamic- Mango Marinated Grilled Chicken from Recipe Girl would add a tropical flair to your weekend.

Spicy Grilled Pork Tenderloin

This Spicy Pork Tenderloin is also a family favorite. It’s quick and easy, tender and juicy and feeds a crowd.

How to Cook Perfect Steak Kabobs

If steak is more your style, I’ve got you covered with my How To Cook Perfect Steak Kabobs post.

Once you’ve decided on the main attraction, it’s time to decide on what to serve with it. Grilled veggies are the perfect addition to a barbecue and Kalyn shares two of my favorite veggies to grill, Grilled Asparagus with Parmesan and Perfect Grilled Zucchini. Or this Mexican Slaw with Mango, Avocado & Cumin Dressing from Cookin’ Canuck would be perfect with those Queso burgers.

How To Grill Zucchini

Pasta Salad is always a favorite at my house. Foodie Crush’s Greek Lemon Pasta Salad or Mountain Mama’s Vegetable Tortellini Salad with Balsamic and Dill would be a perfect addition to any barbecue. Or if your crowd prefers potato salad, how about a Lightened Up Potato Salad from Ingredients, Inc.

Strawberry Mango Salsa Cups

My family is crazy about fruit. They devour these Strawberry Mango Salsa Cups. Or, my Creamy Orange Fruit Dip is always a hit.

Now, let’s not forget about the most important part of any holiday celebration – dessert.

Creamy Lemon Yogurt Pie

My husband is crazy about this Creamy Lemon Yogurt Pie, a cool creamy pie perfect for summer.

Raspberry Cheesecake Cream Puffs

My son suggested making Raspberry Cheesecake Cream Puffs.

Cookies are always a welcome addition. These Chocolate Turtle Cookies from Two Peas and Their Pod look fantastic. Or take advantage of the sweet summer strawberries with pretty Strawberry Wonton Cups from Taste & Tell, or luscious Strawberry Rhubarb Meringue Tartlets from Complete Delicious.

Chocolate Ice Cream Cake Roll

One of my favorite summer desserts is a Chocolate Ice Cream Cake Roll. It’s easy to make and it would be a spectacular way to end the day spent with and remembering those you love.

I’d love to hear what’s on your menu for this weekend?
