Even if you're not hosting a giant bash for the Fourth of July this year (and the experts say it's better to keep any parties small and socially distant), you can still make any family affair a festive occasion by whipping up some of my favorite cookout recipes. What's great about this menu is that everything can be ready is just about an hour.
Happy Fourth of July!
Sandra Lee's Easy Barbecue Chicken 2 Ways by Sandra Lee
There's a flavorful find for everyone with this two-in-one chicken recipe. The two different sauces are both finger lickin' delicious!
Sandra Lee's Easy 4 Ingredient Coleslaw by Sandra Lee
I am very picky about coleslaw, but thankfully this easy version comes together in just a few minutes and has only four easy-to-find ingredients. This refreshing salad is creamy and bright and sure to become a new family favorite.
Sandra Lee's Brownie S'more Cupcakes by Sandra Lee
I am a s'mores super fan but, let's face it, lighting a campfire isn't always doable. So I take store-bought brownie mix and turn it into a magical cupcake topped with a whipped marshmallow frosting. These tend to go fast, so consider whipping up two batches.
