BBQs and backyard gatherings (following CDC guidelines) are going to be happening this Labor Day weekend and we have 12 recipes for you to try.


1. Creamy Cheesy Hot Corn Dip

Nothing better than summer corn, so why not take it off the cob and add some spice! This creamy cheesy dip is sure to please!

2. Beer-Cheese Dip

This recipe may take a little longer to cook, but the wait is totally worth it. Spiked with ranch dressing, and a splash of Budweiser, your guest’s mouths are sure to water.

3. Feta Artichoke Dip

If your favorite part of a Greek salad is the feta cheese, then this dip is for you! And FYI…you there is never too much feta cheese. I like to add a sprinkle of greek olives on the top to finish it off!

4. No-Bake Layered Taco Dip

A tasty dip that’s patriotic as well. All of the necessities in a 7- layered dip shaped into a flag that’ll get everyone in the mood to grub.


5. Bacon-Wrapped Pickels

I am a fan of fried pickles, but these are a gamechanger! I really like using maple bacon for this so then you get the salty/sweet combination!

6. Summer Orzo Salad

We can’t leave out our vegetarian friends! This is something I make regularly as a main dish for lunch. The best part, you can make it ahead of time to serve cold and make a lot of it at once.

7. Creamy Horseradish and Green Bean Salad

Another one you can make ahead and serve cold! Plus, it’s got a bit of a kick, too!

8. Grilled Picnic Corn

Roasted corn on the grill and then slathered mayo and cheese, yes, please!

9. Grilled Watermelon Pizza

If you have ever had a watermelon and feta salad, this is a grilled version of that.


10. Fresh Blackberry Crisp

Nothing says summer like a fruit crisp! You can swap out the blackberry for your favorite fruit like peach, apple or even a mixture of sone fruits. Or try the deconstructed version, this Grilled Peach Crumble. 

11. S’mores Pudding Pie

Is there anything else that needs to be said?

12. Piña Colada Cheesecake Bars?

A tropical vacation in a dessert! A must-try for the pineapple and coconut lovers!
