Memorial Day Dishes from JAG Development

Memorial Day is a special time at JAG Development, not just for honoring the brave men and women who have served our country but for indulging in some of our employees’ favorite dishes. From classic deviled eggs to delicious grilled ribs, here are a few recipes and stories behind some of our favorite Memorial Day dishes.

Addi – Deviled Eggs

Addi has a secret recipe for deviled eggs that has become a family tradition. “There was a recipe from a Pampered Chef party I attended years ago that was to die for. I took that recipe, which had a lot of crème, and made it my own that the family now enjoys every Memorial Day – and no, I won’t reveal the recipe.” These creamy, savory bites are always a hit at for Memorial Day embodying the essence of tradition and a personal touch.

Dani – Tablitas

Dani shares her love for a Texan classic: Tablitas (also known as grilled beef short ribs). As the only remote employee living in Texas, tablitas are a staple of the Texas backyard barbecues. Whether Dani is traveling, camping, or grilling at home, if it’s Memorial Day, you’ll find them eating Tablitas.

For those interested in trying this mouthwatering dish, Dani recommends this marinade recipe: Mexican Carne Asada Marinade.

Dave – Macaroni Salad

For Dave, our Sr. Project Manager – Commercial Division, Memorial Day wouldn’t be complete without a classic macaroni salad. “Every Memorial Day, and each of the summer holidays, we serve macaroni salad which brings back memories of my childhood.” This nostalgic dish is not only a comfort food for Dave but also a beloved staple at his family’s holiday feasts. The creamy pasta salad, often loaded with veggies and a tangy dressing, serves as a perfect side dish to any barbecue spread.

Monica – Strawberry Pretzel Salad

Monica looks forward to her sister-in-law’s Strawberry Pretzel Salad every year. “My sister-in-law first brought this dessert to our attention years ago, and now it’s a staple at our summer BBQs!

The recipe can be found here: Strawberry Pretzel Salad.

At JAG Development, Memorial Day is more than just a holiday; it’s a time for us to come together and celebrate with dishes that bring back memories and create new ones. We hope you enjoy these recipes and stories from our team, and perhaps they’ll inspire you to start some new traditions of your own.
