Labor Day Dishes You’ll Love
Labor Day plays two roles — it’s a beautiful send-off to summer and it’s a fun kickoff for fall.
If you’re planning a family get-together during the long Labor Day weekend, you don’t have to stick with the same-old, same-old recipes you make every year. Instead, surprise your guests with some sausage dishes that they aren’t going to expect — but will rave about all day.
Here are a few of the best cooking and grilling sausage recipe ideas. Feel free to substitute some ingredients and seasonings to make them your own!
Grilled Sausage in Foil
Aluminum foil can be your best friend, especially when it comes to creating perfect portions of a Labor Day meal. This recipe for grilled sausage in foil can be adapted for any type of sausage you like.
Be sure to mix it up by tossing in any veggies you have on hand, especially if they’ve come from your garden. You can even try different veggies in different foil packets so every eater gets a one-of-a-kind serving.
Grilled Corn and Sausage Extravaganza
What could be a healthier, more mouthwatering pairing than fresh sweet corn and premium sausage? This sausage extravaganza recipe lives up to its name and makes the most of your grill. You’ll be using your handy-dandy foil, so make sure you have a good supply of it in your pantry! This recipe is a great excuse to visit your local farmer’s market and pick up ears of corn grown in your community or nearby.
Sausage Salsa Burgers
You couldn’t have a lineup of grilling sausage recipes without including at least one burger in the mix. Our sausage salsa burgers provide a tasty, cheesy kick that will have all your picnickers begging for seconds — and probably the recipe, too.
A grilling secret to make these burgers even juicier is to put an ice cube in the center of your burger patty. The ice cube will melt during grilling and help the inside of the burger stay tender and moist. Just make sure to test your burger’s doneness — sausage should be cooked to at least 160-165°F for safety.
Sausage, Peppers and Onions Sheet Pan
Maybe your grill is already busy, or perhaps you’re just not in the mood to fire it up this Labor Day. No problem! We have a sausage sheet pan recipe that incorporates the season’s ripest produce into a fantastic palate-pleaser.
Sheet pan options have taken off. Like casseroles, they’re pretty easy to whip up, leaving you more time with your guests and less time food prepping. Bonus points if you use a disposable aluminum sheet pan to make clean-up a breeze. Of course, you could always just buy a non-stick sheet pan so you can reuse it again and again for this and other great recipes.
