Top 10 Fourth of July Foods
Here are some of my favorite fourth of July foods.


1. Hot Dogs: Hot dogs are very easy to make for a crowd. Just throw them in boiling water, or onto the grill.


2. Hamburgers: Does it get anymore all American than a juicy burger? Consider setting up a buffet bar so that guests can choose their own cheese, vegetables, and condiments.


3. Corn on the Cob: In the north, corn on the cob comes into season in early July. The super sweet flavor is unbeatable.


4. Potato Salad: This cool, creamy salad tastes best when the potatoes are still slightly firm to the bite.


5.  Baked Beans: Beans are a delicious way to feed a crowd without spending much money. They can even be made ahead and put in a crock pot.


6. Pasta Salad: Cold pasta, assorted vegetables, and Italian dressing are a cool and refreshing side dish.


7. Lemonade: If you are picnicking, chances are it is above 80 degrees outside. Cool off with an icy glass of sweet and tangy lemonade.



8. Fresh Fruit: Fresh fruit is always a delicious dessert. Try arranging red, white, and blue fruits into a flag. I’d recommend, strawberries, blueberries, and bananas.


9. Apple Pie: Ever hear the phrase That’s as American as apple pie? Apple pie has long been a symbol of American culture and prosperity. Try a new twist on the classic by including caramel or walnuts.


10.  Smores: If you’re having a cookout Smores are the obvious choice. Try roasting them over a fire, or in a foil pack on the grill. If you aren’t cooking out, consider making a Smores cake or cookies to capture the flavor of the season.

    Most of these are always present at family get-togethers at my house! But you picked the perfect staples to a July 4th cookout feast! My stepmother always makes the best pasta salad while my father cooks hot dogs and hamburgers on the grill. I usually bring a dessert….I actually brought s’mores bars to the last cookout we had! 🙂 Thanks for sharing!
