With this evening being the start of a long holiday weekend for Memorial Day celebrations, I thought I’d give you a Five Ingredient Friday that is really a Five Recipe Friday for your weekend cooking. The links to the original posts are included for your easy reference to the recipes.
The first recipe is a real favourite and frequently visited page on The Saucy Southerner; it’s for Southern-Style Mustard Potato Salad. This potato salad is packed with hard-cooked eggs and that is what makes a true, genuine, traditional, Southern potato salad great. I’ll be eternally thankful to my friend Jack for sharing with me the “secret” to perfect Southern-Style Mustard Potato Salad…and to my friend Melissa and her husband Steve for improving it further.
Next up is a BBQ sauce that is packed with flavour. It’s Tomato and Vinegar based; it’s sweet and tangy and spicy. It’s simple to make and it keeps in the refrigerator for a long time. If you’re smoking or grilling this weekend, this recipe for BBQ Saucy – Tomato Vinegar Sweet and Spicy needs to be on your Q.
The third recipe in the lineup is for burgers. These are Mediterranean-Style Burgers with onions, Feta cheese, and seasoning all through the burger. You can use the same seasoning method with any flavours you may like; it really enhances the burger to get the seasoning all through the meat, instead of just on the outside.
It just wouldn’t be a picnic without deviled eggs! This recipe for deviled eggs gives you a really wonderful twist on the old favourite; it’s such an amazing combination that will delight all the deviled egg lovers at your gathering. Roasted Red Pepper and Feta Deviled Eggs.
The fifth and final offering is a wonderful dip that you can throw out with vegetables, crackers/bread, or chips to stave off the hungry hordes while you work your grill magic. Spinach Artichoke Dip is just fabulous…and sort of healthy.
I hope you have just a delightful long weekend celebrating and in remembrance and thankfulness for the men and women who died while in service to our country.
