Having a cookout for Independence Day and need some ideas for your 4th of July menu? These tried-and-true recipes are always a big hit and can be prepared ahead of time so you have time to enjoy the party.
If you have been following along here lately, you probably know by now that my annual 4th of July party has become a tradition.
It’s a pretty casual event that is mostly centered around getting together with friends, relaxing in the backyard, and praying not to get rained on. Having a thunderstorm roll through right about the time that the grill heats up seems to be part of the tradition, too 🙂
I used to try to come up with a new set of 4th of July recipes every year. But my friends were always asking for my original ones, so for the last couple of years, I have stuck with basics. And that seems to make everyone happy.
Even better…that makes it easier for me since most of these recipes can be made in advance and I know they will all turn out!
So I thought I would share my 4th of July menu in case you are looking for some ideas for your own cookout.
