Delish Ground Beef-Based Southern Dishes for Your Big Day

1 Comment

Your wedding day deserves to be celebrated in grand style – and what better way is there to do this, other than by bringing excellent food to the table? As you very well know it, food can actually bring people together and help them feel great – so creating a wedding menu based on hearty, delicious Southern foods is one of the best ways to make sure people at your wedding will be actually happy with the menu you provide them.  

For instance, have you thought of including a dish based on ground beef? This is an all-time favorite that can be used in so many ways that it’s impossible not to find an idea you will love.  

Following, we have gathered some of the very best and most delicious ground beef-based Southern dishes you can bring into your Big Day – so read on if you want to find out more.  

  • Ground beef casserole. We do like our casseroles, for a million reasons: they are comforting, they come in as many variations as you can imagine, and they can really create a cozy, nice atmosphere around your wedding dinner. A ground beef casserole goes straight to one’s soul – especially when the right ingredients and spices are used!  
  • Meatballs in red sauce. Served with rice or pasta, this dish is a truly hearty one. We bet people will line up for second servings on this! 
  • Chili. It’s the kind of dish that has just a bit of heat to it, and a lot of heart. Everyone makes chili differently – if you want to create a dish that reminds people of a classic bowl of chili with a twist, a chili bar with different varieties and toppings is a great option. 
  • Mini burgers. We all love a good burger, so why not upgrade a classic recipe with several variations?  Different cheeses, toppings, and even a dollop of chili on top can spice these up!  

Think some of these options are too casual for your wedding?  Remember, the right preparation and presentation can turn even the most casual dish into a fantastic experience for your wedding guests.  Just be sure to discuss the particulars of your wedding, including the theme, venue, and décor, with your caterer.

Top Most Delicious Southern Wedding Foods by Season


Of course, every single detail of your Big Day matters – and a lot!

From the dress you wear to the shoes that walk you down the aisle and from the colors and flowers that surround you to the music that embraces you, all of your wedding details will contribute to painting a beautiful, candid, and unforgettable event in your life.

Don’t forget it, though: your food is highly important too – and if you want to serve a Southern wedding menu, your guests deserve the very best there is.

What are some of the best Southern foods by season? We have some tips for you – continue reading to find out more.

  • Serve something seasonal and unique, such as a strawberry salad with goat cheese and croutons. Spring is the perfect season for fresh foods that aren’t heavy on the stomach (or on your diet plans, for that matter) – so why not bring that into your wedding and delight your guests with a classic sweet and savory Southern combination? They will love it!
  • Zucchini, squash and corn casserole. Everyone knows Southerners are huge on casseroles – so borrowing from some of the season’s best vegetables and putting them together in a delicious, cheese-infused casserole is bound to be nothing less than an absolute success. People will line up for second servings of this, even if there’s no meat in it!
  • It’s the season to get cozy – and the food Southern people eat during the pre-winter months reflects this very well. We suggest you pick something comforting and heart-warming for your fall wedding, such as chicken pot pies. They are absolutely spectacular in terms of presentation and flavour, they are made with chicken (something you cannot go wrong with), and the puff pastry covering it will make them even more comforting (because we all know carbs are the best enemy against sadness, right?).
  • As the cool season starts to settle over the South, people look for foods that are a little heavier, a little spicier, and a little warmer. Anything based on squash will work marvellously from October to early December – but if you want something even more comforting, we suggest nothing less than an absolute Southern classic: fried chicken. Everyone will love it!

  • Fruit station with individual flags. Slices of watermelon and apples on sticks, with individual, custom-messages on little flags, right from the healthiest and most delicious Southern “production”. Who can refuse this?
