Top 5 Side dishes for a Barbecue

It's almost time for cookout season, and now that we can more safely celebrate together with family outside for barbecues after this pandemic the past year, it's nice to dust off some great side dishes to serve along side some great barbecue.

Here are some of my top family recipes  and most popular here at Tip Garden. .I promise, they are easy to make and even someone who thinks of themselves as a beginner or "non" cook, can do these and will get rave reviews!



Turning Pork & Beans into Homemade Baked Beans
 I promise, with a few cans of inexpensive pork and beans, plus  a couple of ingredients you probably have on hand, we can turn these into amazing homemade, slow cooked baked beans the short cut way! 

Bacon Ranch Potato Salad

This 5 ingredient potato salad, can be served warm or chilled. You can't go wrong!
My recipe is for serving warm, but my daughter loves to serve ot  chilled.
She just pre cubes the potatoes before boiling then cools them completely before mixing up the salad. It's so good either way!  Anyone can make this one, but beware, you will be asked to bring it to every occasion!

Baked Summer Squash with Bacon

This simple vegetable dish will have everyone coming back for more! Simmered in the oven with smoky crispy bacon and a bit of butter, salt & pepper, what is not to love? I promise this one is a go to for bringing to cookouts all summer long!

Strawberry Applesauce
This refreshing  fruity side will be loved by young and old! My picture shows it blended smooth, but leaving it a bit chunkier is great too! grab some apples, a pack of fresh strawberries, and let's bring something fresh and light to the cookout! this is also easy for a beginner cook! 

Easy Peach Cobbler
Intimidated by trying to match an old fashioned peach cobbler that others are famous for? Don't worry!
This cobbler is easy , a crowd favorite, and a  cross between a cobbler and a crumble. It is super addicting and any beginner cook can do this!  I promise! grab some peaches and  a yellow cake mix and let's get you baking!
