For anyone who needs some ideas for their Fourth if July cookout, I’ve got you covered. These are just a few of my favorite cook out 4th of July recipes.

1. Maple Dijon Bacon Wrapped Chicken

2. Zesty Italian Pasta Salad

Zesty Italian Pasta SaladEvery cookout needs a side and this pasta salad could not be more perfect. Its full of all sorts of bright flavors and its easy! Plus, you can make this ahead so you don’t have to be stressed out while you’re getting the main course ready.

3. Grilled French Toast

Grilled Stuffed French ToastWhat better way to kick off the Fourth of July than cooking breakfast on the grill?! The grill gives the french toast an a crispy layer to an otherwise soft breakfast.

4. Donut Breakfast Skewer

5. Balsamic Honey Pulled Pork Sandwiches

7. Pancakes

8. Grilled Burger

9. Red, White, and Blue Jello Cups

11. Coney Island Hot Dogs
