It’s that time of year again – summer cookouts and potluck parties – hooray!

My crowd is ready – they’re decked out in their CLEAN white Hey Dudes and ready to EAT!

I also have a 4th of July potluck at work this summer so I need to plan food for a large crowd eating outside (we’re doing it picnic-style this year).

And THEN, we also have a church supper so I’ll also need something to bring for that.


I’m ALREADY exhausted…lol!


Below are all my favorite 4th of July potluck food ideas, recipes, desserts, sides, punch recipes, etc etc ETC.

I use this list every summer – even for our backyard cookout parties we have all summer long starting with our kickoff Memorial Day potluck cookout to start the summer off right.

Hope these ideas help you plan what to make, take or BUY for YOUR 4th of July potluck this year.

Happy Summer!
