Have you planned out your 4th of July menu yet? Whether you’re hosting a big BBQ, or attending a potluck, I have some amazing ideas for recipes that are sure to wow your friends and family this year.
White BBQ Chicken
Sounds different right? You marinate this a few hours or a day before so you can prep everything before your guests get there and just throw it on the grill. It’s totally different and delicious and people will be BEGGING you for the recipes.
CrockPot Pulled Pork
I use it a ton and it feeds a small army. Go out and grab some sweet slider rolls and you’ve got an easy way to impress! It’s also easy to bring to a potluck because you throw it in the slow cooker and can transport as-is.
Firecracker Shortribs and Paleo Cauliflower Salad from Chaos and Love
These are amazing, spicy and flavorful and easy to prep ahead of time and then throw on the grill when your guests arrive. Pair them with a cooling cauliflower salad that takes the sting out of the spicy and you’ll delight any paleo guest!
Asked to bring a side? No idea what to make? Try these guys out!
It takes a little bit more prep than the average salad, but as it sits it only gets better and is a refreshing way to complement any burger, hot dog or BBQ chicken!
Vegan White Bean Salad from Midlife Boulevard
Cool and crisp with cucumbers and radishes, this one will chill you out on that hot summer day.
Tex-Mex Deviled Eggs
This recipe from BetsyLife has cilantro, jalepenos, black beans… the WORKS. Make these for a change on the old, original deviled eggs recipe and kick things up a notch for your Fourth of July celebrations!!
Before making those eggs though, better make sure you know how to boil the eggs properly… check that out here.
No BBQ celebration would be complete without dessert. Try these amazing sugar cookies in fun Fourth of July shapes!
Or for a REAL treat, go for a patriotic and festive dessert that you don’t even have to BAKE!!
Whatever you choose to make for your backyard BBQ, pool party or holiday shindig, live up the summer with some great recipes!
