Happy Independence Day to the USA. And a special call-out our great friends, Canada, which is celebrating Canada Day on July 1, which is commonly known as Canada's independence day, which is somewhat correct but not quite.
Every year I look for fun and easy recipes for you and yours to enjoy. And please don't forget food safety. Check it out at Summer Food Safety.
♨️Non-Grilled Main Dishes
Ok, you don't have to have meat, but at my house you do. Something like Grilled Portobello Mushrooms works well as a non-meat alternative if you have a mixed crowd.
My main suggestions are grill recipes, but there are some great oven recipes you can do for fun, also. Check out Oven Baked Chicken Legs; The Art of Drummies, Crispy Baked Chicken Thighs, or Healthy Baked Chicken Nuggets.
🐄Grilled Beef Recipes
There are lots of ways to enjoy beef for the holiday. Check out the Father's Day Steak Recipe Roundup for the steak lovers out there.

🐖Grilled Pork Recipes
I'm listing pork last because I think of it first. My wife called this blog "all pig all the time" for several years.
My recent Pulled Pork Recipe Roundup will give you a ton of choice for great pork. But let's get to a couple of great choices.
Man can not live by meat alone—time to have a great side dish.
Have a great fun and a safe holiday.
