Fourth of July Recipe Ideas

These classic American recipes are the perfect way to enjoy the Fourth of July

Fourth of July Recipe Ideas

It's almost the Fourth of July, and we'll be making our annual trip to Minnesota to spend the week with my husband's family at their lake house. I look forward to the trip all year and can't wait to spend time boating, relaxing, and sharing some good meals (and drinks!) with our loved ones. We'll grill hamburgers and hot dogs and eat pasta salad and corn on the cob. After all, the Fourth of July is the time to embrace all the delicious American foods that we grew up on. Here's a list of some of my favorite all-American recipes, from a killer mac and cheese to sticky BBQ ribs.

Fourth of July Recipes:
  • Baked Macaroni and Cheese - The ultimate mac and cheese is baked until gooey and bubbling and has a crispy breadcrumb topping.
  • BBQ Ribs with Homemade BBQ Sauce - Sweet and tangy barbecue ribs are messy fun and an easy make-ahead recipe for your party.
  • Buttermilk Biscuits - These tender, flaky biscuits are a welcome side dish to any Fourth of July table.
  • Classic American Cheeseburgers - A traditional beef burger with melted American cheese slices and all the toppings.
  • Mixed Berry Crisp - This dessert is a great way to use in-season berries and is so much easier than making a pie. Serve with vanilla ice cream!
