Cook-out ideas for small crowds.
Another summer holiday is upon us and with so many people trying to avoid large crowds, our 4th of July celebrations will look different.I am sharing some cook-out ideas for small crowds.
My husband and I are empty nesters, so I have learned to scale down my recipes frequently.
Keep it festive. Decorate your table or cook-out area. That will still make it feel like a holiday.
This Burger and Hot Dog Board for 2 is a party on it’s own. I simply fix 2 hot dogs and 2 burgers with a variety of sides. Listed later in post are some of the scaled down sides recipes.
HERE is the homemade Hot Dog Sauce Recipe. I make the full recipe and freeze smaller containers to pull out for smaller parties.
Filet Mignon. You can never go wrong with this.
Steak or Chicken Kabobs
Creating food boards are also a great idea. You can make them any size and add such a variety of foods.
This Chef Salad Board is one we frequently have on a hot summer day.

SCALED DOWN SIDES:
Potato Salad. This delicious homemade recipe is scaled down so you will have plenty but not an enormous bowl full of it.
Here is the recipe for the Baked Beans. When making them for 2, I use the small can of Bush’s Pork n Beans.
This Mini Citrus Bundt Cake with Lemon Curd and Raspberry Sauce is perfect for 4th of July Recipes for 2. It includes so many fresh flavors of the season. Recipe HERE
We can still have holiday celebrations this year, using our guidelines for avoiding the transmission of the Covid-19 virus. I hope some of these ideas will be helpful to you.
Happy 4th of July!!
