Doesn’t 4th of July seem like it should be the smack-dab middle of summer? How is it that we’re already at this point? Summer is going too fast!
Let’s savor it while we can. Here’s my Top 10 list of July 4th food.
1. BBQ Something
Burgers are classic. Try the World’s Best Burger. Or go for chicken instead. BBQ Pepper Jack Chicken is delish. Checkout my Secret to BBQing Chicken Legs on the Grill if you want to be able to hand everyone a drumstick.
2. Potato Salad
There are a million ways to make it. Here’s my version (which is really my mom’s version).
3. Baked Beans
I love this slow cooker recipe for Homemade Baked Beans.
5. Berry Dessert
6. Ice Cream
7. Something Red, White and Blue
I don’t have anything like that on my blog, but here’s a great round-up of patriotic looking food on Living Locurto.
8. Something Munchy
9. Something S’more-ish
S’mores Pie, perchance?
4th of July without watermelon is just wrong! Try kicking it up a notch (or 3) with chili powder.
Happy Independence Day! What are your plans for the long weekend?
