Festive (and Delicious!) Fourth of July Recipes

With July 4th just days away, I’m sure many of you have already made your plans for the summer holiday. And whether they include a casual cookout, a poolside party or an upscale soiree, one thing is guaranteed: Food will definitely be part of the festivities. So in case you haven’t already planned your entire menu (or were asked to bring over a dish last minute), I’ve rounded up 12 side dishes, appetizers, main courses and desserts that would be perfect for any Fourth of July get together:

Clockwise from top left: Grilled Corn with Bacon Butter and Cotija Cheese from How Sweet It Is Quinoa and Berry Salad from Yummy Mummy Kitchen Grilled Blackberry, Strawberry, Basil and Brie Pizza Crisps from Half Baked Harvest and Watermelon, Avocado and Mint Salad from Foolproof Living.

You may remember that I tried this corn out myself last year for my birthday (refresher: It was AWESOME), but it bears repeating that it’s a recipe definitely worth making. If you’re looking for something a wee bit healthier to start the meal, try one of those pretty salads (the watermelon, avocado and mint looks especially delicious), or make an indulgent (though still pretty healthy) treat with those berry and Brie pizza crisps.

Clockwise from top left: Grilled Shrimp with Cilantro, Lime and Peanuts from Martha Stewart Roasted Tomato and Pesto Burgers from Confections of a Foodie Bride BBQ Buffalo Chicken Wings from Susannah’s Kitchen and Hawaiian Hot Dogs with Mango Salsa from Damn Delicious.

No July 4th party is complete without a little grilling action, but that doesn’t have to be limited to burgers (though who could resist those roasted tomato and pesto creations?). Shake things up with tangy grilled shrimp or out-of-the-box hot dogs, or keep things simple and smoky with some grilled buffalo wings.

Clockwise from top left: Sprinkle + Ombre Cake from Brit + Co. American Flag Doughnuts from The First Year Strawberry, Lime and Basil Shortcakes from The Artful Desperado and Blue Velvet Cupcakes from Sprinkle Bakes.

Dessert is always my favorite part of the meal, no matter the holiday, and with desserts this cute, it will be everyone else’s favorite part, too. Take some time to whip up a beautiful sprinkled + ombre cake or go super patriotic with those adorable American flag doughnuts. If simple is what you’re seeking, you can’t go wrong with blue velvet cupcakes, though a fun twist on a classic recipe—like that Strawberry, Lime and Basil Shortcake—would be sure to impress, too.

What dishes will you be making for your Fourth of July celebration?


Festive 4th of July Deviled Eggs

If you are hosting the 4th of July party this year and want some 4th of July appetizer recipes that are a cinch to make, then you are in luck! You can serve these deviled eggs and watch them fly off the plate.

Note: deviled eggs are very flexible. You can switch them up with fusion flavors. For example, use olive oil, basil, finely minced spinach and feta as a Greek-influenced filling.

Ingredients:
12 eggs
1/2 cup salad dressing or mayonnaise
1-1/2 tbs. Worcestershire sauce
2-3 tbs. horseradish or horseradish sauce
1 tbs. mustard (optional)
2 drops hot pepper sauce, or to taste
salt and pepper to taste
1 tsp dry dill
1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes, for garnish
1 teaspoon paprika, for garnish

Begin by putting the eggs into a deep pan filled with enough water to cover them completely plus one inch. Bring the pot to a full rolling boil. Continue boiling for five minutes. Turn off the flame and let the eggs sit for five more minutes before peeling and cooling completely. Note that chilling the eggs makes them easier to handle for stuffing.

Slice the eggs in half lengthwise. Remove the yokes and put them into a small mixing bowl. Mash the yolks with a fork with all the other ingredients until well incorporated. Now you can either spoon the mix into the egg whites or to be fancy, put the blend in a plastic food storage bag and snip one corner off. You now have a serviceable piping bag!

Put a bit of parsley and paprika on top to finish the dish. Viola! One of the easiest 4th of July appetizer recipes ever.


Strawberry Shortcake Skewers

1 package of strawberries

1 package of vanilla chocolate melts

Slice up the cake into cubes

Clean strawberries, cutting off the tops

Slice strawberries into large pieces. Do not eat them all before you make the skewers. That’s uncool.

Skewer strawberries and cake, alternating between the two

Put the vanilla melts in a bowl and microwave for about 30 seconds

Drizzle the vanilla over the skewers or don’t. Your choice. It’s America.

One of my favorite summertime dinners, especially with a group of friends – grilled pizza! Use store-bought pizza dough rolled out (but no need to get perfect) and lay directly on a clean grill. After cooking one side of the dough, flip it over and add your favorite toppings. It would be so fun to do individual pizzas with a group!
