Gluten-Free Labor Day Menu will knock your socks off. Let’s end summer with a bang. My recipe ideas are perfect for a small family of 4. Of course, if your family is larger my recipes could be doubled or tripled. Perfect for BBQs or picnics. Celebrating the end of summer with family and friends or just your immediate family. This three-day weekend is going to be a blast.
Gluten-Free Labor Day Menu
Believe it or not my husband and I got married during Labor Day Week. We did it so more friends and family could attend our wedding. I am more appreciative this year than in years past due to this wonky 2020 year. Needless to say, I am beyond grateful for old and new friends, and my family.
Time to celebrate the end of summer.
Gluten-Free Labor Day Menu
Breakfast or Brunch Ideas:
Dutch Pancakes are a family favorite. These vintage puffy pancakes are a dream. Topped with powdered monkfruit and freshly squeezed lemon just like the five-and-dime dinner when you were a kid. Or maybe it was the blue plate special of the day. Consequently, if you are going to have a buffet then I highly suggest having a quiche, Blintz Casserole with a fruit platter, and maybe my Ground Turkey Maple Breakfast sausages.
Lunch Menu Ideas:
Normally at my house, we don’t often eat lunch. We tend to have a large breakfast later in the day. Of course, we often have brunch. Which for me means a small buffet of items to choose from. However, I do have suggestions for lunch. Time to bbq some hamburgers. My favorite hamburgers are all Buffalo or otherwise known as Bison. Indeed, if you have never had Buffalo I highly suggest trying it. Furthermore, feel free to read Buffalo Nutrition Benefits | Recipes blog post. Look for Horseradish Onion Buffalo Burgers or Buffalo Pepperoncini Burgers on my blog.
Needless to say, no bbq or campout is complete without a coleslaw or salad. Salads are without a doubt easy to make or even purchase. However, if you are anything like me you are always on the lookout for a new and tasty salad dressing. Hence I have added my favorite dressing. Furthermore, these dishes are easy to bring to a potluck or bbq party.
Appetizers For Labor Day:
Labor Day is for family and friends. What get-together is complete without deviled eggs? In fact, my eggs are dill flavored. One of my all-time favorite appetizers is a Shrimp Cocktail. Therefore, I have included how to cook the shrimp and the recipe for the cocktail sauce. Because labor day often falls on my Anniversary I do splurge a little more than at other times. Consequently, my lobster dip is a luscious blend of seafood and a creamy sauce. Needless to say, it is the perfect Anniversary appetizer.
Dinner Menu Ideas:
In all honesty, any of the burger recipes could also be used for dinner. BBQ Ribs smoked and grilled low and slow are a great choice for any time. Tin-foil packet dinners are great to cook in the oven, on the grill, or on a campfire. Best Prime Rib or Elk Steaks are also a great idea.
Dessert Menu Ideas:
Last but not least is the sweetest part of the meal. So many choices to make when picking a sweet treat. Cookies are good for a larger group of people. I have included two cookie recipes. One of which is hard to decide whether it is a cookie or a candy. Of course, Strawberries have to be on the list and what is better than a strawberry cake?
Check out my blog for other recipes such as homemade crackers, and dips. In conclusion, I hope that these gluten-free and refined sugar-free recipes help you plan a great Labor Day! May you be able to share good food with family or friends? If you do use one of my recipes I would appreciate a picture and a comment. Thanks! Happy Labor Day to all!
