Labor Day is a time to recognize the contributions and achievements of American workers while also a symbolic end to the summer. What better way to celebrate than firing up the grill and spending time with friends and family? We've got you covered in terms of the menu -- here are plenty of options to throw onto the grill this long weekend:
After a day in the sun: Chicken Wings
Flavor packed and relatively light, chicken wings or drumsticks are an awesome way to end a day in the sun. Whether you’re heading to the pool, beach, lake, or soaking up some rays in your yard, chicken wings won’t weigh you down. Serve a big plate of wings with sides of celery, carrots, cucumber salad, and potato chips.
If friends are coming over: King Crab Legs
When the days are warm, there’s nothing like gathering around a big table and cracking crab legs with friends. If you have a crew with you this Labor Day weekend, grill your crab legs in batches and serve alongside corn on the cob, potato salad, and plenty of melted butter. Sent to you straight from the docks in Bristol Bay, this spread is sure to impress and satisfy everyone at the table.
Family in town for the long weekend: USDA Prime NY Strip
The quintessential grilling steak, a USDA Prime NY Strip is a savory, crowd-pleasing favorite. Our cuts are oozing with rich flavor and marbled just enough to sizzle and sear to perfection. Serve your steaks with mashed potatoes, rolls, and an easy side salad.
Getting together with the neighbors: Pork Chops
You can’t go wrong with this grilling staple! Kick your cookout up a notch by using premium all natural, minimally processed pork. Use a hearty shake of seasoning and spices to bring out the pork's flavor to the max and serve with your favorite summer vegetable.
Hopefully, you’ve found some inspiration for your holiday nosh. Whatever your plans and whatever ends up on your grill, we hope you enjoy your long weekend!
