Veterans Day Dinner

Veterans Day Dinner

The menu for this Veterans Day Dinner was originally created to support American Loyalty Card’s Adopt a Vet program. Since then, it’s become a way to show support for all veterans who have fought for their countries.

Veterans Day often comes on a weekday, so dinner should not take a long time to cook. Some of these recipes can be prepared beforehand and frozen so you can just pop them into the oven. The dessert is a no-bake recipe which is even easier. Enjoy and please think of those who have served their country.

Appetizer

These are nice appetizers that can also be used for a lunch main course with a salad. You can make them even easier to make in an air fryer.

Soup Course

You will never consider eating canned cream of mushroom soup once you have had this freshly homemade mushroom soup. It’s a great way to use up mushrooms left over in your refrigerator.

Dessert

Dessert is a wonderful ending to a meal. It doesn’t need to be heavy or could be just fruit. With that in mind, this recipe has been pretty popular.

Tiramisu Without Brandy
Don’t cut corners making this lovely dessert. Prepared properly, it is truly wonderful. Marscapone is an Italian cheese, similar, but much creamier than cream cheese.

Other Dessert Choices

Since melon and strawberry are usually available year-round, a simple fruit dessert with a little spiciness really hits the spot. The Strawberry and Cantaloupe salad is a great choice. A simple citrus salad would also be a good choice.
