This Ultimate 4th of July BBQ Menu is exactly what you need to host an amazing 4th of July party!
The 4th of July is here and that means celebrating poolside, lakeside or just in your backyard with friends and family. It also means that BBQ is going to heat up! These recipes will make your 4th of July BBQ one they talk about for the ages.
Oven Roasted Grilled Baby Back Ribs
These fall off the bone baby back ribs will make it seem like you spent days prepping them. A simple homemade spice rub and two hours in the oven are all they require. Coat them homemade BBQ sauce or store-bought and toss them on the grill for 10-ish minutes and you have the perfect main dish for your holiday BBQ.
Simple Homemade BBQ Sauce
Making a homemade barbecue sauce is so simple. You combine several ingredients in a pan and simmer. That’s it. It tastes so much better than store-bought sauce and is way better for you. Plus … the bragging rights!
Parmesan Basil Grilled Corn on the Cob
This perfect summer corn, grilled to perfection with basil, butter and parmesan is a must have on every summer barbecue menu! Wrapping the corn in foil and cooking it on the grill allows the butter, salt, basil and parmesan to cook into the corn kernels. I mean … butter-infused corn … that’s a hells yes!
Bacon and Beef Baked Beans
My grandmother’s baked beans are the best. I added one ingredient, ground beef, to her tried and true recipe. Bacon and Beef Baked Beans is a MUST at all of my summer parties.
Simple Summer Coleslaw
This simple and light coleslaw is the perfect side dish for your summer barbecue. It’s easy to make, has a simple ingredient list and doesn’t take much time.
Crispy Rosemary Smashed Potatoes
Crispy on the outside, soft on the inside. These rosemary smashed potatoes are the pastry of potatoes! Easy to make and prep in advance and then toss in the oven just before serving the main dish!
Rolo Chocolate Chip Cookies
What summer BBQ would be complete with a delicious pile of cookies? Make this cookie dough with Rolos, browned butter and chocolate chips (WHAT!!) days in advance and toss them in the oven as everyone is sitting down to eat and serve them warm. Or make the cookies the day before and serve at room temp. Either way, everyone will be begging for the recipe!
You could make this all yourself but why would you? Share recipes with friends and ask them to bring a dish! When you make one of my recipes, share it on Instagram and tag me! I love to see my recipes in action!
Not hosting, but planning a BBQ later in the summer? Save it for later!
