Labor Day Barbecue Bash Menu and Recipes   | Gourmet Food World

The end of summer is slowly but unmistakably approaching, and in the blink of an eye, the dog days of summer will turn into the crisp days of fall. Make the most of the last, glorious days of fun under the sun with a memorable Labor Day cookout that will have your friends talking long after the days turn cold.


A Labor Day bash means one thing to us: barbecue. So fire up the grill with our selection of flavorful Labor Day menu ideas! Enjoy our grilled recipes, including fish and veggies, and a delicious drink recipe and dessert to cool things down.


Start cool as a cucumber.

Start your Labor Day barbecue off with a sophisticated appetizer that you can eat with one hand, while you sip on a refreshing sangria drink with the other. Our Smoked Salmon and Cucumber Appetizers are smokey, buttery, but with a refreshing twist compliments of the juicy cucumbers. Add some mixed nuts or almonds in bowls, a cheese sampler plate and your guests should be well fed until the main event.

Fire up the grill, two ways.

Give your invitees an option of classic, mouthwatering grilled Ribs or a super-easy Grilled Trout with a zesty, herbaceous Salsa Verde.

Grilled Trout:

A fresh fish like trout works beautifully on the grill, soaking up all that smoke into the succulent flesh, but you can use your favorite fresh fish, and adjust the cooking time. Cook it with some sprigs of fresh rosemary, some fresh lemon slices and a good seasoning with salt and pepper. Simply perfect.

Just (sweet) Desserts.

Finish things off with a sweet that showcases sweet raspberries that are ripe, juicy and plentiful during the hot summer months. Our White Chocolate Panna Cotta is loaded with these sweet berries, a touch of mint and citrus, and lots of decadent Valrhona chocolate. Serve in your best glasses, or even bell jars, and consider this Labor Day one for the books.
