What’s you go-to BBQ side dish?

You can’t have a hot dog without a side of mac + cheese, can you? This recipe kicks it up a notch with slices of Andouille sausage for a delicious little kick (and a definite upgrade from the box version)!

Simple to make, and even easier to eat an entire bowl without realizing it – oops! Serve with Frito Scoops or your favorite corn chip. Always a party favorite.


Patriotic Berries and Cream

A sweet and fitting finish to your Memorial Day gathering. These red, white and blue berries are a hit with kids and adults alike. Make ‘em with homemade whipped cream, or just grab a can of Oakhurst – we won’t tell!
