Memorial Day Picnic Red, White and Blue Recipes for Families
Does your Memorial Day celebration include a red, white and blue family picnic or backyard party? If you’re looking for easy recipe ideas for the whole family, read on for a few kid-friendly holiday ideas!
Fruit Salad Sandwiches
These sweet sandwiches are the perfect way to celebrate the day. Start with honey wheat bread and a smear of cream cheese. Add a rectangle of blue berries at the top left and make stripes with raspberry jelly and sliced bananas.
Ice Cream Cones
Give the kids a treat with red, white and blue ice cream cones. Dip the top half of an ice cream cone in melted white chocolate. Before the chocolate dries, add red, white and blue sprinkles. Scoop vanilla, blue raspberry and cherry ice cream into the cone and top with whipped cream and more sprinkles.
Potatoes come in a variety of colors. Boil red, gold and blue/purple potatoes. Chop the potatoes into bite-sized pieces and ask the kids to help mix in mayo, sliced onions or other veggies.
Serve a red, white and blue cake at your Memorial Day backyard bash. Bake three separate layers of cake—one plain vanilla or white cake and the other two with either a few drops of red or blue food coloring. Layer the cake with white icing and sliced strawberries in between. Top the holiday cake creation with a layer of white icing, blueberries, strawberries and raspberries.
