Chef, television personality and cookout-lover Sunny Anderson is joining TODAY to share two of her favorite quick and easy grilling recipes for the Fourth of July. She shows us how to make BLT hot dogs, grilled, hard Arnold Palmer cocktails cocktails and a short-cut, grilled apple pie.

Sunny Anderson's BLT Hot Dogs

Grilled hot dogs are so good served simply with mustard, but they're also excellent canvases for a wide variety of different toppings and flavor combos. Here, I've added smoky bacon, crisp lettuce, creamy mayo and cool tomatoes to give delicious dogs the classic flavors of a BLT sandwich.

Why limit the wonderful smoky, charred flavors of the grill to just food? Adding these signature summer tastes to a liquor-infused Arnold Palmer makes an already awesome drink even better.

Don't spend hours of your precious summer days sweating over homemade apple pie. This easy, five-ingredient recipe cuts down on the prep time but keeps all the comforting flavors. And, since it's cooked on the grill, you don't even have to turn on the oven!
