Unique Ideas for Your 4th of July BBQ

Kebabs 1 of 9

Kebabs are fun and super easy to throw together during your patriotic bash. You can make them yourself or let your friends and family build their own from fresh ingredients. The best part is there is no end to the variety of meats and veggies that can be used in these creations, plus they can easily be made vegetarian or vegan for your health-conscious guests.

For fun kebab combos, try:

  • Pork chunks with pineapple and a teriyaki glaze
  • Mini meatballs with mushrooms, green peppers and marinara sauce on the side
  • Zucchini, yellow squash, tomato and onions with a balsamic glaze
  • Chicken chunks with red pepper pieces and garlic cloves with a rosemary rub

The possibilities are endless.

Tip: If you are using wooden skewers to cook your meat and veggie pieces, be sure to soak them in water for 30 minutes prior to grilling so they don't splinter or catch fire.
