Memorial Day is just a few days away and if you’re like me, you’re already planning what your celebration will look like. Of course, it involves food so, I’m sharing 13 recipes perfect for this special day. These recipes are family favorites and are all super easy to make. Even though we will be celebrating with family and friends, we always stop to remember the real reason for this special day ~ honoring the men and women who have paid the ultimate price for our freedom. I am so very thankful to those who chose the country over self and have given all for my freedom.

Memorial Day Recipes

To make Memorial Day extra special this year, I’ve pulled together some of my favorite things from Amazon to help us celebrate. From grilling accessories to outdoor dining ideas along with a fun game and decorating with red, white, and blue, each of these goodies are available to snag on Amazon Prime. Memorial Day Fun with Amazon includes red, white and blue decorations, dining plates and cups, grill accessories, food covers and tiki torches.

One | Red White and Blue Decorations | Fans, banners, and streamers are included in this collection of patriotic decorations. They are not only great for Memorial Day, but also for July 4th and Labor Day.

Two | Grill Pan | This pan is my “go-to” when I cook bite-sized foods on the grill. As the food cook, they absorb the delicious smoky flavor that only comes from grilling, and cleans up is easy since the pan is nonstick.

Three | Melamine Dish Set | I have two sets of these dishes in cream and I love them! I’ve been using them for 2 years and they still look as good as the day I bought them. They are heavyweight, dishwasher safe, and great for indoor or outdoor dining.

Four | Ladder Toss Game | I cannot even count the hours that my family has spent playing this game! It’s easy to set up, portable and great for big and small kids. 

Five | Instant Read Thermometer | Find out the exact temperature of your food in seconds. I keep this instant-read thermometer at my side when grilling steaks and chicken. It’s a no-fail way to make sure your food is cooked perfectly.

Six | Woven Seagrass Utensil Caddy | This basket is not only useful, but it’s also pretty too! It’s great for keeping your spoons, forks, knives, and napkins within reach when you’re dining outdoors and super useful when feeding a crowd.

Seven | Picnic Blanket | This foldable blanket is extra large and waterproof. It’s great for picnics, concerts, movie nights on the lawn or for camping. I ordered it in red, white and blue stripe and can’t wait to use it this weekend!

Eight | Double Walled Tumblers | I have a set of these cups and use them every day. They are great for cold or hot drinks and they’re dishwasher safe. I love using them for coffee when I’m sitting on the deck in the morning and they are perfect to use with your for your favorite cocktail.

Nine | Grill Cleaner | Moist grill wipes removes the grease and the Q-Swiper bristle free grill brush has a stainless steel grill scraper to remove burnt-on food particles. This is a great way to clean your grill.

Ten | American Flag With Pole | I love flying an American flag not only on Memorial Day but all year long. This kit includes a beautiful, embroidered flag along with a pole and mounting bracket.

Eleven | Food Tents | I don’t’ want all my hard work in the kitchen to go to waste so I make sure that my yummy food is covered with these food tents. This set has several different sizes of covers to shield your food from flies. They are easy to clean and roll up so storage is a no-brainer.

Twelve | Tiki Torches | This set of tabletop torches is so pretty! I have them on our deck and I love how they give off a cozy vibe while providing just the right amount of citronella scent to help keep the “skeeters” away.
