On the grill
Is it even Labor Day if you don’t bust out the grill? We think not. Here are a few recipes you’ll be ready to add to your regular rotation.
Try these rosemary-thyme lamb chops, which feel fancy, but are actually deceptively simple to prepare.
Or try this Labor Day burger for a classic main dish that’s guaranteed to please.
Of course, any long weekend is a good long weekend to grill steaks, so try this marinade and get sizzling.
But don’t forget: the grill doesn’t have to be solely used for your main course. Try adding a side of grilled Mexican street corn or marinated grilled vegetable kebabs to keep the grill flavors going all across your plate.
Spend more time with the ones you love with hands-off methods to produce delicious eats with minimal effort.
For instance, these air-fryer chicken legs that are so crispy, your guests won’t believe they’re oil-free.
Or slow-cook your way to the perfect side dish with these creamy “ranchified” potatoes.
Barbecue is always a hit — and thanks to a crockpot, it’s easier than ever to make at home.
Give your long weekend an extra sweet flavor with these simple, mouth-watering desserts.
Try these sheet-pan s’mores for all of the taste and less of the mess.
Or toast the end of summer properly with this roasted berry and peach dump cake that simply couldn’t be easier.
Feeling patriotic? This layered berry dessert is about as festive as you can get.
Don’t forget the drinks
Of course, no Labor Day celebration is complete without a drink to complete your meal. Whether you’re imbibing or not this holiday, we have a few suggestions to make it special.
Boozy lemonade — need we say more?
Or quench your guests’ thirst with the classic crowd-pleaser: Homemade Arnold Palmers.
This watermelon tequila punch has holiday weekend written all over it.
Of course, we can’t forget the importance of hydration, so consider sprucing up your water pitcher with some fresh fruit, cucumber slices or mint.
Now that we’ve taken care of the menu, there’s nothing left for you to do but grocery shop and celebrate. Luckily, we can help with that first thing.
