Bye, Bye Summertime! A Sophisticated Gourmet Labor Day Cookout Menu

by
Sophisticated Gourmet Labor Day Cookout Menu

It's... inevitable. Summer, with all it's fun under the sun, is almost over. Labor Day weekend is almost upon us, and with it, the unofficial close to the summer season. But before we unpack the sweaters and bring out the comforters, there's still time for a last summer hurrah! Get ready for a Labor Day Cookout! Celebrate a fun-filled, warm and beautiful long weekend with family and friends... and great food, of course!

Labor Day weekend celebrations are all about barbeques and grilling, picnics and cookouts, so we've prepared a summery Labor Day Cookout Menu for you, with recipes as fresh as they're unfussy, as down-to-earth as they're sophisticated, with the freshest ingredients of the summer season.

A stylish, sophisticated version of an American classic we all know and love? That's what we're talking about! There's no need to get complicated, to get gourmet.

This recipe inspired our Labor Day Cookout Menu, so run for the recipe, now! Gourmet Chili Dog Recipe
