Are you eager to see your friends post quarantine but still want to keep a safe distance? Have you been invited to any socially distanced BBQs that require you to sit six feet apart around a bonfire? While it might not be the summer social scene you originally pictured, it is still possible to have a get together and be safe, as long as your local regulations allow it.
Here are ten potluck dishes that are appropriate for a socially distanced BBQ.
Who doesn’t love guacamole? But double dipping (or single dipping) is probably frowned upon during a socially distanced BBQ, so these individual guacamole cups are perfect. Find the recipe here.
Trying to avoid the lingering at the food table? These individual veggie cups are the perfect appetizer for a party. Ranch or blue cheese dressing? It’s your choice. Find the DIY here.
What’s a fiesta without a good taco dip? Layered with beans, avocado, sour cream, salsa and garnished over the top, this is hands down my favorite potluck snack. Find the recipe here.
Mini keto burgers
What’s a socially distanced BBQ without a good burger? These mini burgers are homemade and delicious. Find the recipe here.
Fruit in cones
These creative little deserts are perfect for a grab and go food station. Find the recipe here.
Sausage and veggie skewers
These skewers are easy to assemble and don’t require sharing any utensils (like your traditional potato salad does) which makes it a perfect potluck meal. Find the recipe here.
Corn on the cob
Every BBQ needs a little sweet corn. This recipe for corn on a stick is super super super simple, but makes for a great bring your own dish as it can be completely prepped ahead of time. Find the recipe here.
Twice baked potato poppers
Swap the potato salad for some potato poppers. While potato salad is always a tasty addition to any bbq, it doesn’t really work if you are trying to minimize contact amongst friends and sharing the serving utensils. But these potato poppers are perfect to grab and go! Find the recipe here.
Watermelon strawberry popsicles
Whether you want to make DIY s’mores or these adorable s’mores pops, it is literally the perfect summer dessert to end a BBQ around a good ole’ fire pit. If you want to try out these fun pops, find the recipe here.
