Laid-back backyard hangs, kids splashing in the pool, reading under a tree or by the lake—this is what summers are made of. Add any one of our BBQ menus to the mix, including stacked burgers, a bubbling seafood boil, and juicy racks of ribs, and you’ll soon need to be taking reservations!
1. Easy burger menu
When you’re short on time but want a summer family favourite without a lot of fuss, there’s nothing like a burger night. Go ahead and customize your burger, starting with a Compliments Cheddar & Bacon Stuffed Beef Burger, then adding your choice of condiments, and a pile of the crunchiest chips. To keep things casual, try our Grilled Vegetable Pasta Salad that you can make ahead and serve at room temperature when you’re ready. Don’t forget to pick up a bottle or two of our new Compliments Pineapple Sparkling Water, fizzy, refreshing, and a perfect substitute for soda!
2. Long weekend grilling menu
Long weekends are made for gathering around the grill and serving up some tried-and-true crowd-pleasers. We suggest a rack of Canadian-produced Nagano pork ribs, since their excellent marbling results in juicy, fall-off-the-bone ribs every time. Or try any one of our Meat or Seafood Dept.’s fresh kabobs that you can tailor to your tastes with vegetables, a choice of protein and a marinade. Serve with some finger-licking Garlic-Herb Butter Grilled Corn and our super easy 5-Ingredient Broccoli Salad, then finish it all off with a slice of our warm Compliments Jumbleberry Pie—à la mode, of course. Now watch the fireworks ignite!
3. Steak night grilling menu
Whether it’s a milestone birthday, a graduation, an anniversary, or just because, celebrate with Sterling Silver® steaks. We recommend our Sterling Silver® Top Sirloin Medallions or Rib Eye Steaks, along with this fresh take on a Caesar salad and Grilled Mini Potato & Garlic Skewers that you can dress up with our Compliments Bacon-Ranch Dip. Finish off with our Bakery Dept.’s three-layer Neapolitan Cake for something special!
4. Seafood lover’s grilling menu
Switch it up tonight with some perfectly grilled tuna steaks or mahi mahi filets. Round it out with a ready-to-grill Veggie Griller in your choice of asparagus, mixed vegetables or pepper medley and a cool glass of lemonade to wash it all down. If you’d prefer salmon, try our Seafood Dept.’s Fresh Atlantic Salmon Fillet, stuffed with a Mediterranean filling of crab, sundried tomatoes, capers and fresh parsley. Cap off the night with our new Bakery Dept. lemon or blueberry filled sugar cookies, and you’ve got a party in the making!
5. Company’s coming easy grilling menu
Unexpected friends or family dropping by? Or maybe you just want to take it easy this weekend and not stand sentinel over the BBQ for hours. We’ve got you covered with our Panache Portuguese-Inspired Flattened Chicken, marinated in a mild herb-and-spice rub that’s grill-ready without any fuss or muss. Or pick up a Compliments Pizza Dough Ball and grill your way to Italy with this easy Grilled Margherita Pizza. Take a creative spin on a side salad with this Mediterranean-inspired Grilled Vegetable Salad recipe , where sweet peppers, eggplant, and zucchini get a balsamic vinaigrette dressing, a crumble of Compliments Feta Cheese, and fresh mint over a bed of lettuces. Cap it off with our Panache Key Lime and Strawberry Petites Mousses—all you have to do is plate, serve, and relax!
