Change the way your party members see cookouts by letting them choose specialized burger toppings.
Sometimes, having a cookout may get dull, especially if this is your third, fourth or even fifth cookout of the summer. You might have this concern in the back of your mind about boring your guests with standard food options and grilling recipes. But, there is still one more way to ‘wow’ your party members with this cookout theme idea.
Create your own burger menu for your guests! Even though this sounds like extra work, this is a really easy task because we’re going to provide you with the exact menu. All you will need to do is copy and paste our best burger topping suggestions into your own creative design. This can even be as simple as printing this list out and gluing it quickly to fancy paper.
As your guests arrive for the cookout, hand them your small burger menu so they can pick which burger they would like. If you want to get your kids involved, have them go around to everyone at the party and get each guest's order.
