Cranberry Cookout


It’s cookout season and we are here for it! Lawn games, cold drinks, good food and great company is the perfect combination for an awesome summer cookout. We’ve put together some tasty cranberry recipes that would be a great addition to all of your summer cookouts. 


Grilled Pork Chops with Cranberry Pineapple Sauce

Now this recipe is worthy of a Father’s Day cookout or for a special graduate. So flavorful and different from any other pork chops you’ve had! This recipe is by Rebecka of At Home with Rebecka and won our 2020 Food Blogger Recipe Challenge so you know we recommend it!


Cranberry Sweet & Sour Shrimp Skewers

Whether you make this as the main course or a side it will be a hit. What’s more “Cape Cod” than seafood and cranberries? This tasty recipe was made for us by Lauren of Fleur de Lectable as part of our 2018 Food Blogger Recipe Challenge. We still love it all of these years later. Give it a try and let us know what you think.

Cranberry Chutney Bacon & Brie Burger

If you make this burger for a crowd we have to warn you, you’ll be expected to make gourmet burgers for every cookout moving forward. The chutney and brie pair great with the bacon and hamburger. It truly is a gourmet burger!

Quinoa Salad with Cranberries, Feta, & Cashews

Now that you’ve got a few options for the main course you need a delicious side dish. What we love about this recipe is it’s not a typical cookout salad like potato salad or pasta salad. Don’t get us wrong, we love those sides too but this one brings a nice mix and is gluten free so your GF friends will appreciate it too! Recipe and photo by The Beard & The Baker Blog.


Cranberry Fruit Salad

A cookout staple, fruit salad! It’s always nice to have a fruit salad to pick on at a cookout. It’s healthy and refreshing! Adults and kids alike are going to enjoy snacking on this one. The cranberries add nice color and flavor. This recipe was made for us by Lunches & Littles.

Cranberry Lemonade

What is summer without lemonade? Every cookout needs a signature drink! Make this Cranberry Lemonade for a refreshing beverage all ages can enjoy. You can always add your favorite liquor for an adult version! Recipe by Cook with Kushi.

All American Mixed Berry Star Tart

Now this is a fabulous dessert recipe to bring for a Memorial Day, 4th of July, or Labor Day cookout! The patriotic colors and stars fit the themes perfectly and it's really delicious. Serve with vanilla ice cream or cut into small squares and eat like bars. The flaky crust tastes just like pie crust, mmm yum!

Cranberry Squares

Our famous cranberry squares are always a hit. Add these to the dessert table and watch them go. You’ll bring home an empty plate every time. Very easy to make and people can truly never get enough.

Cranberry Vanilla Yogurt Popsicles

A fun dessert for all ages but we think the kiddos will really like them at the cookout. Made using healthy ingredients so you can feel good about serving them a “treat”!

Red, White & Blue Dessert Parfait

Another great recipe for the patriotic cookouts! This recipe comes together very quickly and can be made in individual jars or a large bowl for a big crowd. You only need some angel food cake, cool whip, and fruit for this one! Light and tasty, a perfect summer dessert.
