Bring on the mint juleps and grilled hamburgers!
Another month has come and gone—which we can’t even begin to believe, but, with a new month comes an exciting new menu just waiting to be served. And this month is a busy one with food-focused holidays galore. From Cinco de Mayo to Memorial Day, we’re already thinking about all the delicious food we get to enjoy this month. Scroll through to take a look at all the Kentucky Derby pie, breakfast casserole, hamburger, and in-season fruit-centric recipes we have lined up for May.
Tacos Gobernador are the perfect marriage of shrimp tacos and quesadillas. They’re filled with onions, tomatoes, peppers, shrimp, and Oaxaca cheese and are fried until crispy in a bit of bacon grease.
Sopapilla Cheesecake Pie
These tasty cream cheese-filled bars are inspired by the Mexican fried dough, sopapilla. These cheesecake bars are made with refrigerated crescent dough, cinnamon, and cream cheese and will be devoured immediately at your Cinco de Mayo celebration.
Kentucky Derby Pie
There’s a good chance this pie will be eaten before the Kentucky Derby even begins. Serve this chocolate chip, bourbon, and pecan pie warm with a side of vanilla ice cream.
You can’t have a Kentucky Derby party without serving the signature Mint Julep. Remember to make the syrup ahead of time to allow it to cool before serving—you can even make a big batch the night before so you’ll have enough mint juleps to last you the whole derby day.
Eggs Benedict Casserole
Wake mom up on Mother’s Day with the smell of this scrumptious overnight casserole. It’s much easier than making homemade eggs Benedict—but it tastes just as good!
Pecan Sour Cream Coffee Cake
If Mom has a sweet tooth, this decadent coffee cake is the perfect addition to her Mother’s Day brunch. This cake ups the crumb topping by adding an additional layer of crumbly sugar, butter, pecans, and cinnamon inside the moist sour cream cake.
Best Hamburger Ever
Memorial Day kicks off grilling season and what better recipe to start the season than these juicy hamburgers? The secret ingredient to these flavorful burgers? A packet of onion soup mix.
Every Memorial Day barbecue needs a side dish. May we suggest our highly-rated creamy potato salad made with red-skinned potatoes, mayo, pickles, eggs, and mustard? After seeing everyone’s smiling faces when you pull out the bowl, you won’t regret making it.
Seven-Layer Taco Dip
Whether you’re attending a graduation party or some other gathering that requires an appetizer, you really can’t go wrong with this Seven-Layer Taco Dip. Everyone who tries the beans, sour cream, salsa, tomato, lettuce, cheese, and olive-layered dip won’t be able to stop eating it.
Any one of these May festivities could use some cupcakes—even a regular Friday night could use some cupcakes. Plus, these chocolate cupcakes with a vanilla cream filling might just remind you of one of your favorite childhood treats.
Easy Bulgogi (Korean BBQ Beef)
May is Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month and one way we’ll be honoring the celebration is with this top-rated bulgogi recipe. Recipe creator KDC860 recommends serving this thinly sliced, marinated beef over rice or in a lettuce wrap.
This Filipino Lumpia is filled with ground beef, ground pork, onion, bell pepper, and carrots before being fried until golden brown. You can find lumpia wrappers, as well as the recommend dipping sauce banana ketchup, at most Asian grocery stores.
Strawberry Spinach Salad
While we enjoy making this recipe all year round, there’s no better time to enjoy a Strawberry Spinach Salad than when strawberries are at their ripest. The spinach salad is topped with strawberries, almonds, and a sweet, yet tangy dressing that makes it the perfect appetizer, lunch, and potluck hero.
Grandma’s Lemon Meringue Pie
This old-fashioned lemon meringue pie will be the first thing to go at any party, potluck, or dinner this month. As the May flowers begin to bloom (thanks, April showers!), this citrusy pie is sure to brighten up your spring even more.
