With the approach of the most patriotic holiday of the year (not to mention, celebrating the American World Cup soccer team), now is the time to crank up that American spirit and host a Fourth of July party that is sure to be remembered. Sick of the old burger-and-hotdog? We've compiled our 10 most patriotic recipes, from main dishes to drinks, and red-white-and-blue to the straight-up American classics!
These burgers hit all the right notes, with just the right amount of heat, creaminess and meaty flavor. We smell America!
Not in the mood for a burger? You can never go wrong with delicious flank steak, an affordable cut of meat that takes on any flavor you throw at it!
Maryland. Beer. Old Bay. Does it get any more patriotic than that?
No July 4th cookout is complete without some good old corn on the cob. Ours is complete with pickle relish and gooey cheddar cheese!
Because have you been to a summer barbeque without coleslaw?!
Nothing screams, "America" more than PB&J... except for maybe pie.
Looking for a dessert that's a little more sophisticated that still sings the National Anthem? This red, white and blue cheesecake is a winner!
If you're looking for a more casual dessert that's still a crowd-pleaser, utilize your fresh berries in these snacks!
Because no party is complete without a toast, celebrate America with these festive champagne cocktails.
Or, go the alternate route with a true American classic of beer.
Happy Independence Day!
