Trying to decide what to take to this year’s Labor Day cookout? We’ve got you covered with 12 easy Labor Day recipes for everything from drinks to sides and dessert.
Labor Day is always the last hurrah of summer. School has started, cooler weather is just around the corner, and grilling season is coming to a close.
But at least we can get our party on with one last big cookout, right?
Problem is, I usually forget to plan ahead on what I am going to take with me. I get to the night before or the morning of and realize I have to whip something together.
Planning ahead isn’t always my best gift.
Luckily, I have a mental file of easy-to-make recipes that are also a big hit at barbecues and cookouts. So I know I can quickly make my Pineapple Cake or Macaroni Salad and be the hit of the party, even if I didn’t remember the party was happening until just a few hours before.
If you also need to have a few easy Labor Day recipes to keep on hand, check out this list I’ve pulled together. Whether you want to make a refreshing summer beverage or a sweet dessert to round things out, I can guarantee you’ll find the recipe for you here!
