Kentucky Derby Day Menu Ideas


As promised, I have a list of foods that would be excellent for menu items for a Kentucky Derby Party. It’s always a fun day to watch the race and see all the beautiful horses…not to mention the fancy hats women wear… besides.. it’s a great excuse to get together with some friends for some good times and great food.

For Starters

Crab Stuffed Mushrooms are great with anything and these will disappear before you know it.

Benedictine Cucumber Tea Sandwiches are a tradition.. and so easy to make…

Deviled Eggs are terrific with Tea Sandwiches... and best of all this is one recipe you can make ahead...

The Main Event

Ham as the main meat is perfect for this kind of event… and it requires little work. Baked Ham with Rum and Coke Glaze or Jack Daniel's Glazed Ham are perfect for this.

Southern Corn Pudding is a great go-together with ham. A truly delicious accompaniment.

Scalloped Potatoes is another terrific side dish to go with ham.

Asparagus with a Classic Hollandaise Sauce adds a great color to the buffet and the flavor is wonderful. Just trim the hard ends off a bunch of asparagus and rinse them. Set them in a microwaveable dish.. and about 2 tablespoons water and cover with waxed paper…. A quick nuke on high for about 7 minutes or until tender…and voila! …. they’re done… drain off the liquid and drizzle Hollandaise Sauce over them…

The Finale

Bourbon Chocolate Pecan Tart is always a great ending to a fabulous meal… serve it with fresh whipped Chantilly Cream….


Mint Juleps

Fresh Lemonade

Iced Sweet Tea

All these foods are truly delicious and not difficult to make… and best of all they can all be prepped ahead… make as much as you can completely ahead and the rest will be a snap.

Have a wonderful Kentucky Derby Day!
