4th of July Recipe Roundup

30 Jun

Happy 4th of July! Yes, it’s early, and yes, we’ve all been cooking out for at least a month now, but this weekend is a great time to kick off some summer celebrations. Watermelon slices, tons of burgers and brats (of the vegan variety), salads galore, fireworks and citronella candles, spending time outside, and allllll of the beer.

But it’s those cookouts that I want to stress. There’s something about eating al fresco that I just LOVE. The fresh air, the sounds of summer, and the sun beating down on you as it falls below the horizon. It’s wonderful and something I wish I could capture in a bottle.

But until that technology is developed, here is a roundup of recipes you can use for the coming holiday, or for any cookout this summer (and next!). Thanks to all of my fellow food bloggers for contributing to this roundup. I’m sure you’ll find something (or many things) that you’ll want to make in the coming months.

Here are 50 recipes, to signify 50 states of the US 🙂
