Looking for something to chow down on this Fourth of July, then look no further. These 12 red, white, and blue Fourth of July recipes will surely make the whole family begging for more when the night is over.
1. Mama’s Cornmeal Hushpuppies.
Found these tasty little things on Food Network. Mix in some cornmeal, onions, jalapeno, and a pinch of salt. Add a little bit of buttermilk too. Then heat some peanut oil in a deep fryer pot for about 250 degrees. Drop batter into the oil in teaspoonsfuls. Give them 6 to 8 minutes to cook. And ta-da, you got yourself some hot hushpuppies to snack on.
2. Deviled Burger
This Fourth of July recipe consists of horseradish, spicy mustard, and Worcestershire. And in between it all is a sweet pretzel bun. To make it right grill burger over medium heat. Be sure to divide the meat into 6 mounds.
3. Grilled Reuben Dogs
One of the classic Fourth of July recipes gets flipped on its head. Okay, not literally but you get the picture. All you have to do is swap hot dogs for corned beef. Easy as sunny morning in New York.
4. Cherry Bomb Mimosas
Let me add in a drink to our list. Combine pineapple juice and maraschino cherry juice. Give it a little twist by adding champagne and an orange slice. Suddenly you got something as sweet as the runaways song.
5. Grilled Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches
The trick to making this one of the best Fourth of July recipes ever is by making sure you serve with blue cheese-apple slaw. Obviously you will have to grill chicken at about 165 degrees, 5 to 7 minutes per side in order for all it to work.
6. Red, White, and Blue Layered Flag Cake
C’mon, you gotta have some desert after all that chicken. Nothing’s more sweeter than some Betty Crocker and luckily she has her own super moist white cake mix available at most stores. Just make sure you have three containers of icing for that American look.
7. Campfire Baked Beans
Our list of awesome Fourth of July recipes wouldn’t be complete without the perfect side dish. 6 slices of bacon, 1 onion, 1 green pepper, 3 cans of navy beans, and more are what make this recipe a trip down memory lane. Think about those days when you were eating beans by the campfire. If not, then think about what happen after you ate too much beans in one day. Hopefully these wouldn’t have the same effect.
8. Patriotic Panna Cotta Shooters
Found these little beauties on sprinklebakes. Made from the combination of grenadine syrup, powered gelatin, coconut milk, and blue curacao. These are perfect for those hot, sunny Fourth of July days with the kids.
9. Corn on the Cob with Spicy Butter
I remember eating corn on the cob at my grandmothers’ house during family gatherings. Among one of the classic Fourth of July recipes, especially when you mix in butter, paprika, and cayenne for a savory taste. Just make sure to let the heated corn simmer for about 5 minutes.
10. Fish Tacos al Pastor
As a lover for all things tacos and tortillas, I fully endorse this excellent dish. Guajillo and morita cheese mix with fresh orange juice and chopped pineapples. How do you say ‘please’ in Spanish?
11. Oatmeal Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches
I just happened to come across these while searching for tasty Fourth of July desserts and man, what a combo. All you need is to stir in oats and chocolate in a bowl full of whisk flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. Make sure you shape the dough into about 20 1-1/4 in. balls. Once you spread them apart on a baking sheet flatten them with the bottom of a glass dipped in sugar. Then bake until their brown.
12. Patriotic Ice Cream Cakes
Red velvet cake. Creamy white topping. Star-spangled sprinkles. Fourth of July never tasted so good. If you’re wanting to bake some cup cakes then these little beauties are your best bet.
