4th of July Grill-Fest

4th of July Grillfest

Fourth of July is tomorrow…and there’s still time to make a quick meal plan for the big day.

Seriously- even if you can only make 1 grocery run, you’ve got this. Especially if you have a grill.

It’s the perfect time of year to utilize your grill for every part of the meal. I mean it! I’m talking to apps to dessert, all with that delicious, smoky flavor attached to them.

So, here’s what I’m thinking for this “July 4 Grill-fest”:


  • Buy some eggplants to throw on the grill and turn into babaganoush (serve with pita or pita chips)
  • Whip up some white bean hummus and grill some fresh pita to go on the side

Main Dish

  • Grill up some classic burgers or dogs (we like smash burgers with chopped onions in them and American cheese on top)

Side Dish

  • Grill up some corn on the cob, the easy way (and please top it with garlic chive butter)
  • Add some bell peppers, hot peppers, squash and zucchini sliced (tossed in olive oil and spices) onto the grill for a bit of a char
  • Grilled fries are also delicious


  • Grilled pineapple is my new go-to summer dessert, served with the best vanilla ice cream you can get your hands on

Happy grilling, ya’ll!
