Recipes to Spice Up Your Next Summer Cookout

Summer Recipes

Are you getting tired of the same old summer cookout recipes every weekend? We are too! That’s why we’ve prepared this list of fun, simple ways to make your next cookout pop with flavor. Whether you’re looking for something spicy, sweet, or savory, we’ve got it all!

Not Your Average Burgers on the Grill

Beef Burgers:

If you’re a fan of a classic burger using beef patties, take this crowd favorite and add some of our Farmhouse Tomato Jam, bread crumbs, salt and pepper to your ground beef for a tangy twist. Find the full recipe here!

Turkey Burgers:

Our (nut free!) Fennel Red Onion Pesto is the perfect addition to turkey burgers for all the onion and fennel lovers out there. Pairing this unique pesto with ground turkey meat with salt and pepper is a great way to have intense flavor while keeping your meal low-fat and heart-healthy. Make it an even healthier meal by skipping the bun and enjoying it atop mixed greens.

Chips & Onion Dip

If you thought only eating one potato chip was difficult before, it will be downright impossible when you add our Balsamic Four Onion dip into the equation. This dip takes just minutes to whip up and 30 minutes in the refrigerator to marinate, making it the perfect option for a last-minute pot luck.

Summer Ice Cream

What better way is there to celebrate summer than crafting the perfect bowl of ice cream? Grab a tub of your favorite vanilla ice cream and add ½ a cup of our All Seasons Fruit Spread to make a fruity delight! Pro tip: add a splash of cognac or bourbon to give it a more sophisticated taste.
