Memorial Day marks the unofficial start to summer for the United States. The long weekend is filled with family, friends and fun outdoors for a cookout. We love to get the kids outside in the sunshine, and fire up the grill with a few friends. Our neighbors on one side always host a huge informal neighborhood get-together with everyone bringing a dish. From lunchtime until just before dusk the smell is simply amazing with steaks, hamburgers and sausages sizzling on the grill pretty much all day as people wander in and out.
Speaking of grills, I’ve seen this photo around quite a bit recently, especially on Facebook. And doesn’t it look grand!? This would have to be the ultimate in family grilling experiences and would be perfect for Memorial Day! It really makes me wish that I had a bigger back yard! But a girl can dream, right?
There are so many great BBQ recipes for side dishes that you can serve at your Memorial Day gathering. Here are several of my tried and true favorites. This is pretty much everything you need to accompany your steaks, hamburgers and sausages for your Memorial Day cookout menu. And while all of these recipes are paleo friendly, I guarantee that absolutely no one will know, unless you tell them of course. Enjoy!
