Each year we look forward to the 4th of July for the parties, food, and family that will surround us. It really is an occasion that many people love celebrating in style. Here are a few culinary ideas to get your party started:
A typical 4th of July party includes barbeques with plenty of hamburgers, hot dogs, steaks, potato salad, fruit salads, and many more dishes. One of the best 4th of July dishes is a lemon Jell-O with vanilla ice cream. Not only is it refreshing, but also it adds to the dessert of the day.
All you need are two packages of lemon Jell-O, one can of crushed pineapple, vanilla ice cream, and Cool Whip. You will also need mold to create the dish. You may choose a festive mold for the occasion in the shape of a star.
Another recipe for the fourth of July includes deviled eggs. You need between six and twelve eggs depending on how many people will be at your party. You will want to hard-boil the eggs. Once the eggs are done you peel them, cut them in half and dump the yolk in a bowl. In the bowl you will mix egg yolk, mayonnaise, dried mustard, salt and pepper until it is creamy. Then you place the concoction back in the egg half and sprinkle a little paprika.
There are still many more recipes out there for 4th of July and you decision will depend on your preferences as well as your guests. A well- rounded 4th of July will include at least two types of meats, potato salad, deviled eggs, fruit, and several desserts.
Whatever options you choose, it’s all about serving food that’s simple and delicious – so your guests will be full and happy without you ending up stuck in the kitchen and missing out on the festivities.
