Perfect Cookout Recipes for Labor Day Weekend

Easy Recipes to Serve up This Summer

    Read on for the best and easiest summer recipes to make for the whole season.

Labor Day means firing up the grill, having friends over, and enjoying the warm weather. The centerpiece of the season will be the cookouts! Put a spin on your usual plates with these fresh and delicious recipes. Try adding some flavorful shrimp to the menu, or get out the food processor to make a creamy dip everyone will love. It’s never a bad idea to have a bright, flavorful cucumber sandwich for vegetarian guests (although omnivores will also appreciate it, we’re sure). And of course, you can’t forget dessert!


On The Go Appetizers

Are you going on a family outing like the beach or lake? Take these Callie's Hot Little Biscuit travel well treats - sea salt biscuit crackers, cheese crisps, pimento cheese, cocoa & cream cookies.

The perfect companion to the Callie's Hot Little Biscuit sea salt biscuit crackers is my Smoked Fish Dip. This proves to be a great snack to take on the go for your weekend adventures.

Sausage & Peppers Cocktail Biscuits is a quick favorite that ignites my urge to entertain, especially when I smell the grill. These are a perfect twist on Callie's Hot Little Biscuit buttermilk biscuits for a delicious travel sandwich.



The Sheet Pan Shrimp & Sausage is here to help if you need something super quick and easy! I love serving it on its own or atop of a salad for a quick and healthy meal that is delightful.

Perfect for the warm Labor Day weekend or for an afternoon Southern soiree - the cucumber dill-icious sandwich is versatile and easy to make.



Baking Nutter Butters as a family is only half the fun of these tasty treats! They are so easy to pack for your Labor Day activities.

Rosé-Spiked Berry Crostata - this recipe combines crispy, buttery crust with rosé wine and fresh summer fruits.

Peach Upside Down Cake is a dish that is so versatile! It can be served in the morning at breakfast or brunch, as a dessert or at room-temperature to travel for your picnics.

Another mouth watering recipe that can be changed for whatever time of day you are needing, the crowd pleasing shortcake biscuit recipes gives you a breakfast, snack and dessert option!

GoGo's killer cookies are not only a no-bake treat to keep in your freezer to whip out at a any occasion but they travel well for your weekend activities.


Briny Hounds is a refreshing drink perfect for a day of hanging with your friends and family. Enjoy!

Coined the Morey Margarita for my love or margaritas and my twist of the jalapeño kick.
