Labor Day Grilling Ideas

Labor Day is obviously an unofficial BBQ and Grilling holiday. Tired of the same old grilling ideas for your Labor Day party? Try a few of these unique ideas.

Grilled Tato Skins

Everyone’s favorite restaurant appetizer can come from your grill! Simply slice in half and skewer baby potatoes and grill until tender. Serve with a decorate-your-own potato topping bar with toppings like shredded cheddar, sour cream, chives and bacon bits.

Pickle Dogs

In the continued spirit of dissing the bun…try a giant dill pickle sliced in half lengthwise as the bun for your grilled hotdogs! This is a surefire hit for pickle-lovers.

BBQ Shrimp Skewers

Grab a bag of frozen jumbo shrimp – get the EZ Peel kind – and let them sit in a bag of BBQ sauce in your fridge overnight. Skewer and grill. These grill fast, and are eaten up even faster.

Philly Cheesesteaks

Assemble thinly sliced flank steak, peppers, onions and garlic in a foil packet and sprinkle with your favorite Italian seasoning, pepper and olive oil. Seal and grill packets for 10 minutes. Open and add cheese, grilling for a couple more minutes. Open and serve! 

Grilled Fruit

Grilling is not just for the meats. Try grilling peach halves or pineapple rings. The heat caramelizes the sugar in the fruit and creates a rich flavor complementary to the meats. Plus up your pineapple rings by using them as the bun on tiny sliders.
