4th of July 2017 Last-Minute Recipe Ideas

A few last-minute recipe ideas to help you celebrate the 4th of July in style, including deviled eggs, cornbread, and lots and lots of homemade ice cream.

So, here’s the thing, I totally planned on sharing a recipe with y’all today for All-Purpose Grill Seasoning and then life happened and I came to the conclusion that it could wait. Not to mention, I’d also like to test out a few more recipes with it before I share it with anyone. I think it might be helpful to have a few other recipes to go along with the recipe for the seasoning. So I promise, at some point this weekend I’ll get right on that. Until then, here are a few of the recipes that might be happening in my kitchen this weekend.

I can tell you one thing that I’ll definitely be making this weekend. Deviled eggs. I even plan on making a few extra for my lovely neighbor Christie. Sweet & Spicy Candied Jalapeño Deviled Eggs are my new favorite, so I’m excited to share them with everyone I know. Also, it’s just not a holiday weekend if there aren’t deviled eggs to celebrate it with. If jalapeños aren’t your thing, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered with our many other recipes for deviled eggs.

Candied sliced jalapeños make these sweet and spicy flavored deviled eggs perfect for your next cookout, picnic, or family gathering.

Of course, there will have to be some kind of ice cream going on this weekend at some point. Hopefully, I can get my hands on some fresh cherries because that’s the flavor I’ve been craving most lately. Head on over and take a gander at our Summer’s Coming Favorite Ice Cream List to get some ideas for making your own homemade ice cream for the 4th.

Summer just isn't summer without lots and lots of ice cream. Our list of ice cream favorites is bound to inspire to make your homemade ice cream.

The other thing that I know I can’t get through the weekend without making is this Jalapeño Cornbread Filled with Blueberry Quick Jam. It’s fairly simple to throw together and even easier if you make the Blueberry Quick Jam a day or two ahead of time. I promise you that this is one Bundt you’re going to totally fall in love with at first bite.

Jalapeños and fresh blueberries come together in this recipe to make the most deliciously sweet and spicy cornbread you've ever tasted.
