Every 4th of July Cookout Recipe You’ll Ever Need

50 Fourth of July Cookout Recipes

It’s almost here! One of my favorite long weekends of the year is fast approaching, and I dove head-first into creating the biggest, best fourth of July recipe index the Internet has seen in a LONG TIME. I created a similar post for the Super Bowl, and even though it takes a helluva long time to put together (and probably actually costs me SEO credit for using so many links), I still love it because it makes everything so easy for my readers. So here we go, 50 amazing 4th of July-inspired recipes from some of my favorite bloggers!

I should mention (or reiterate for those of you who know), that I’m a pescetarian/vegetarian, so these recipes are about 99% meat-free. But let’s be real: For those of you who’ve never had a portobello mushroom marinated in balsamic, grilled to perfection, and rested on a classic burger bun, go try it out ASAP. For me, the 4th of July is about that portobello burger, tons of fresh salads and apps, a slew of patriotic desserts, and of course the company of good friends armed with cold brews. I love taking the opportunity to celebrate America and the people who make it the country it is every year — and with this guide at your side, your 4th of July party planning will be a breeze, so you can get as excited as I am!

P.S. I will actually be featuring a little red, white, and blue recipe creation on the blog tomorrow too, but I wanted to knock this post out before everyone starts descending on the grocery store — seriously, I went to Trader Joe’s a few days ago and it was already an absolute mess. Do your shopping early people!
