Memorial Day is not only a time for remembrance and reflection but also a chance to gather with family and friends and celebrate the start of summer. And what better way to commemorate this special occasion than by savoring some delicious food? Whether you're planning a backyard barbecue, a picnic in the park, or a potluck gathering, there are certain foods that have become synonymous with Memorial Day festivities. Let's explore some of the best foods to enjoy on this holiday. But before we do that, be informed that Boardwalk Bites - Carnival Food Truck is open to serve you during the Memorial Day weekend. Our "Better than State Fair" classic carnival foods are perfect for celebrating this day with the whole family.
Grilled Burgers and Hot Dogs: When it comes to outdoor celebrations, nothing beats the classic combination of grilled burgers and hot dogs. Fire up the grill and cook juicy burgers seasoned to perfection, topped with cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, onions, and your favorite condiments. Add some sizzling hot dogs with all the fixings, and you have an all-American meal that will delight everyone. You can also try Boardwalk Bite's foot-long corn dogs and bacon-wrapped sausages.
Barbecue Ribs: Memorial Day and barbecue go hand in hand. Indulge in some tender and flavorful barbecue ribs, slow-cooked to perfection. Whether you prefer smoky and saucy baby back ribs or spicy and tangy spare ribs, the rich flavors will make your taste buds sing. Serve them with a side of tangy coleslaw and cornbread for a mouthwatering combination.
Grilled Chicken: For those seeking a lighter option, grilled chicken is a fantastic choice. Marinate chicken breasts or drumsticks in a flavorful blend of herbs and spices, then grill them to achieve that beautiful charred exterior and juicy interior. Pair it with a fresh salad, grilled vegetables, or corn on the cob for a wholesome and satisfying meal. We also recommend Boardwalk Bites chicken tenders basket.
Seafood Delights: Memorial Day is also a great time to enjoy a seafood feast. Fire up the grill and prepare some succulent shrimp skewers marinated in garlic and lemon. Alternatively, opt for grilled salmon or mahi-mahi fillets, seasoned with herbs and served with a zesty salsa or a squeeze of fresh citrus. Seafood not only adds variety to the menu but also brings a touch of elegance to your gathering.
Refreshing Salads: As temperatures rise, it's essential to have some refreshing salads on hand. A crisp and vibrant Caesar salad, a tangy pasta salad with colorful veggies, or a light and refreshing watermelon and feta salad can be delightful additions to your Memorial Day spread. These salads not only provide a contrast to the heartier grilled dishes but also offer a burst of freshness and flavor.
All-American Desserts: No Memorial Day celebration is complete without some sweet treats. Channel your inner patriot and whip up a batch of delicious desserts with a patriotic twist. Red, white, and blue fruit parfaits, berry-filled pies, star-shaped sugar cookies, or a classic American apple pie are sure to satisfy your guests' sweet cravings. Of course, don't forget about Boardwalk Bites' funnel cakes, loaded fries, and kettle corns.
Cool Beverages: Don't forget to keep your guests refreshed with a variety of cool beverages. Offer a selection of ice-cold lemonade, fruity iced teas, or refreshing mocktails. For the adults, consider serving a signature summer cocktail or a chilled craft beer to add a festive touch to the celebrations.
