14 Last Minute, Super Easy, July 4th Cookout Recipes

We've pretty much all been there - hosting or invited to a cookout and waiting until the absolute last minute to prepare something!  By that point, almost everyone else invited has already snagged the responsibilities of bringing paper plates, fruit or veggie trays, chips, burgers, and all your other usual cookout necessities.  So, what should you do?  Bring something more unique that 1) you know no one else will be bringing, 2) will look festive and be a conversation starter, and 3) make you look super impressive when really you just threw something together in less than 30 minutes!  Below, I've compiled 14 different 4th of July ideas that will blow everyone else's cookout foods out of the water!
