These recipes will make you the star of your cookout this year! Happy Fourth of July everyone!
I’m really excited about 4th of July this year. Scott’s birthday is on the 5th and I just feel like everything should be extra special this weekend.
Here are some cookout menu ideas with everything from appetizers, cocktails to desserts – ALL made on the grill. Many of these recipes are patriotic such as my ever popular red, white and blue cobbler that uses seasonal berries and is easy-peasy to make on the grill using a cast iron skillet. In fact, don’t be surprised if people ask you to make these recipes again next year!
As I was snapping the photo, the fire crackled and I caught it in the shot! Jalapenos + prosciutto + havarti = heaven!
Bacon + Jalapeno + deviled eggs= need I say more?

Coconut Lime Butter + Grilled Corn = legal crack.
These kebabs are full of flavor- like a meatball on a stick!
This is a healthier, herbed potato salad that is bursting with flavor from fresh herbs and smoke from the grill!

Assemble a fun smores bar for a fun dessert to make after a cookout. Grill-side marshmallow roasting is a fun after dinner activity with friends!
