Backyard Menu Ideas

Backyard Menu Ideas

Summertime entertaining is fun and generally pretty laid back, but there is still the menu that needs to be planned. We've got a list that will help take that load off your mind. Below are our favourite backyard menu ideas. Invite your favourite group of friends and start picking from the list!

Start with appetizers that won't wilt in the heat, choose the perfect main for the grill, and serve it with a side that makes the most of fresh summer produce. Cap it with a crowd-pleasing dessert--and don't forget the cold drinks! Stefano's got you covered there too.

Set the table out back, fire up the grill and you're well on your way to a rocking backyard bash in no time.

And for even more ideas check out our post about grilling food on a stick - leaving one hand free for drinks!
