Quick and Easy Dishes to Feed a Crowd at Your Summer Cookouts

There’s no better way to spend a summer weekend than by hosting your friends and family at the tastiest cookout in your own backyard. Basking in the sunshine, sipping on refreshing drinks, everyone’s favorite tunes playing on the speakers, and wafts of smoky, meaty smells coming from the grill all come together to make the most relaxed, happy afternoon. However, hosting a summer cookout is often a whole lot more stressful than you imagined it would be when you set about inviting everyone you know. When you’ve got a hungry crowd descending on your home, it can be hard to know what to cook that won’t require you to spend the whole week leading up to the cookout prepping in the kitchen. We have gathered our favorite simple, fuss-free, flavor-packed summer grilling recipes that will save you from any pre-party stress and panic.
