How to elevate your backyard BBQ for Labor Day


Avoid the stress of hosting a Labor Day gathering with these key steps. The first big step is planning for your BBQ gathering. The best way to elevate your backyard BBQ for Labor Day is keeping things simple and as stress free as possible. That means décor should be simple and minimal. Deciding what is going to be on the menu will make it easier to enjoy time with loved ones and still be an amazing host.


Remember to stay hydrated.

What better way to do that than by sipping on a cold glass of Nectar-Mango + Passion juice? This is the best way to stay hydrated and energized especially if you’ll be using the grill later.


Appetizers anyone?

The start of any party should always include an appetizer. One staple to start Labor Day off right is Queso Fundido using our favorite Lupita- Queso Strips!


  1. In a Medium bowl stir together avocado, tomato, green onion, jalapeño, lime juice, and salt. Adding lime juice and salt to taste.

  2. Preheat the broiler and position a rack in the upper third of the oven.

  3. In a large broiler- proof skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Whisk in flour until smooth, then whisk in milk. Cook until bubbling. Take off heat and stir in Queso strips and pepper jack. Continue stirring until completely melted.

  4. Place the skillet under the broiler and broil until bubbling and browned.

  5. Serve warm and topped with avocado salsa.


Grill it up!

Using the grill can be a great way to entertain guests and move the party outside. Why not grill up a summer classic, the hot dog. Make them stand out by wrapping them in bacon first for that extra flavor. The best quality bacon is our Sabor-Brasil Bacon.


Game time!

It’s time to grab a deck of cards and get the family together. You could try learning a new game together or play the classics. Plus, this gives the host time to take a break before serving dessert.


Leave room for Dessert.

After a nice long hot summer day, top off a fun evening with some ice cream. Make several grab and go stations so that guests can customize their sundaes or popsicles. One of our favorite ice cream toppings is DA Roca- Dulce de Leche glass jar.


Using these tips to elevate your Labor Day gatherings will set the tone for the fast-approaching fall. Remember the most important part of any gathering is to have fun and enjoy spending time with the people you love.


Cheers!
