Planning a Fourth of July cookout to showcase your patriotic pride? Celebrate independence with good taste by wowing your guests with these dynamite recipes for the main course, sides, drinks, and desserts.
The Main Event – Cookout Entrees
In Minnesota, we like cheese in our burgers. Hello, Juicy Lucy! So these cheese-stuffed burgers from Napoleon are definitely on our cookout menu. Will your attendees ask for seconds? You betcha!
What is a summer cookout without ribs on the grill? Try Napoleon’s smoky maple ribs recipe. Of course part of being a host with the most is catering to your guests’ dietary needs. This black bean burger recipe from Beko provides a tasty vegetarian option!
BBQ Side Dishes
Don’t fire down the grill just yet! These grilled peaches with raspberry yogurt are a fun, fresh dessert option.
Incorporate some red, white and blue into the menu with these patriotic cupcakes:
All that food and nothing to wash it down with? Not at your party! Quench your guests’ thirst with refreshing fruit infused water. Use blueberries, strawberries and pineapple to add to the theme.
If you really want to kick the party up a notch, the adults will love these simple lime margaritas!
Last but not least, celebrate responsibly, have fun and thank a service member.
