An Eastern Shore Memorial Day Weekend Cookout

This weekend marks the unofficial start to summer-kick it off with a bang! If the weather holds clear, why not have a Memorial Day Weekend cookout? Fire up the grill, gather your friends, and enjoy these easy, tasty Eastern Shore recipes.

Our Favorite Memorial Day Weekend Foods

We think it’s a good idea to offer your guests a selection of light salads and snacks that they can munch on throughout your party. Our soft pretzels, sweet fruit salads, and delectable shrimp fit perfectly alongside traditional chips and dip.

Great for summertime gatherings, our Watermelon Feta Salad is the perfect mix of sweet and savory, with sweet honey and watermelon mixing with fresh mint and tangy balsamic dressing.

Crafted with parties in mind, our Soft Pretzel Bites are perfect for dipping in any kind of sauce you like-our favorite is honey mustard! Make a bunch and keep a tray warm in the oven for when your picnic guests want something to snack on.

A Honey House Favorite, these Bacon Wrapped Shrimp are perfect hors d’oeuvres to start your picnic with! The perfect blend of savory, sweet, and salty, you can add jalapeños, cream cheese, or berry jam for a unique twist to this appetizer.

The Main Courses

Grilled Vegetables are a classic side to any main course-they can easily be paired with chicken, fish, and beef. Find garden fresh veggies like asparagus, brussels sprouts, and new potatoes for a seasonal twist on this recipe.

This Grilled Corn is special, thanks to the blend of honey and spices used to glaze it before cooking. Make this ultra special by blending your favorite spices together to create a house-blend that your neighbors is envy!

While your grill is hot, cook up this Honey Glazed Chicken! Hotdogs and cheeseburgers might be classics, but chicken is just as easy. Pair it with our grilled veggies and coleslaw for a full Memorial Day Weekend meal.
