10 Patriotic Recipes to Celebrate the Red, White and Blueberry!
Memorial Day is a week away, if you’re like me you’re wondering how did that happen?
If you’re looking for some patriotic fare, I pulled together 10 recipes from the archives to celebrate the Red, White and Blueberry and for noshing over your Memorial Day weekend and holiday!
Watermelons have been arriving in grocery stores, just in time for the holiday weekend and the unofficial start of summer.
The creamy, salty cheese is the perfect partner to the sweet, juicy melon!
Individual cobblers are baked in mini skillets with a topping that is rustic and simple to make! Substitute ramekins if you prefer for these easy, mini desserts.
Slice and grill a baguette and serve with a bowl of berry caprese medley and let your guests help themselves!
A make-ahead dessert using a store-bought angel food or pound cake to cut down on prep time. Exercise your freedom and independence and layer with berries, lemon curd, pudding, whipped cream or a combination!
A refreshing combination of pureed watermelon & lemonade with watermelon stars and blueberries. Add citrus flavored vodka for an adult beverage or serve without for a festive summertime lemonade.
Mix it an hour to two in advance of patriotic sipping and celebrating!
Fresh, flavorful, and healthy! Serve with Red, White, and Blue Tortilla Chips
Trifle in a jar that’s portable and ideal for a picnic!
A short-cut almost cobbler along with a recipe for cream cheese ice cream you can make without a machine.
However you celebrate Memorial Day, remember our military men and women who have died to protect and serve us.

Even at 5AM I’m in the mood for noshing (at least I’m consistent)… I’ll have the bruschetta and salsa please! And I have to agree Mary, this year is flying by… Need to slow it down and enjoy-I’m sure the long weekend will help:@)
Wow. Beautiful ! Did you make all of these?
Beautifully delicious post, Mary!

Oh dear me, Mary, I haven’t eaten breakfast yet, and I am salivating over all your patriotic food! What I’m craving the most is one of those mini skillet berry cobblers. Thanks for all the Memorial Day inspiration.
Memorial Day is a week early this year, as I just realized last week when I thought I had another whole week before the holiday, whoops 😳 I have been scrambling around trying to get organized and this recipe round up is going to come in very handy indeed! My family will be very appreciative if I whip up a Patriotic Berry Trifle or some Cream Cheese Ice Cream, and I know they would dig into the Blueberry Salsa, thanks Mary!
