4th of July Recipes (16 recipes)

Here are some of our favorite recipes for celebrating our freedom!

Cucumber Pasta Salad – If you are heading to a potluck, bring this salad along.  It’s tangy and feeds a crowd, not to mention, it’s delicious. 

DIY Hamburger & Hot Dog Buns – This recipe is our go-to all summer long.  It’s so simple to make and is ready in just 40-minutes. 


Garlic and Onion Bratwurst – Simply the best brats we’ve ever eaten.  Sure to please.

Beer & Onion Brats

Italian Pulled Turkey Sandwiches – In case of rain, consider this amazing pulled turkey.  Made in the crockpot, this is moist and flavorful.  Top with BBQ sauce if desired, and serve is a delicious bun.  Feeds a crowd. 

Grilled Pizza – Got a grill and perhaps some semi-picky eaters?  Grilled pizza will be a crowd pleaser.  Everyone can choose their own toppings, and the pizza is ready in less than 10 minutes.  Make a double batch of the pizza dough and you’ll easily serve 8 people. 

Fruit Kabobs – an easy and fun way to enjoy fruit.  Kids love these. 

Texas Caviar – A delicious and tangy bean appetizer.  Better yet, it’s packed with protein and very filling.  A family favorite. 

Grilled Corn – Don’t forget to soak the husks, but there is nothing better than grilled corn.  Yum-o. 

Crockpot Baked Beans – Easily my favorite BBQ side dish, these beans are tangy and sweet, and have a smoky flavor.  I love ‘em. 

Roasted Green Bean & Mixed Potato Salad with a Parmesan-Garlic-Dill Sauce – Oh. my. goodness. We love this salad.  It’s a little more fancy in terms of flavor, but the ease of making it wouldn’t suggest such a fabulous warm salad. 

Raspberry Delight – For dessert, whip up some of this creamy raspberry delight.  It’s perfect for a warm day, and can easily be made a day in advance.

Toasted Marshmallow S’more Bars – Like a s’more, in a bar.  Delicious. 

Rhubarb Dessert – This dessert is famous in our home.  Although the photo doesn’t look the best, the sweet and tangy combination of the vanilla pudding with rhubarb compote surrounding a layer of marshmallow-ey goodness is incredible. 

S’more Roll UpsToss the filling of your s’more inside a homemade crescent roll.  Yep. They are sure to be a crowd pleaser. 

Strawberry Kiwi Fruit PizzaA fruit pizza is always fun, and you can showcase the best of the mid-season produce.  I can’t help but imagine a strawberry/cherry and blueberry pizza arranged as an American flag.  Would be perfect for the weekend. 

4th of July Cherry Berry Dessert – Another festive one perfect for the weekend.  Using the red cherries, blue blueberries and white whipped cream, this dessert is a long-standing favorite for the 4th in our house.  Plus, the leftovers are even better. 

Happy 4th!  Frog Prince and I are going to enjoy the weekend, without blogging.  See you next week.
