It’s time to start paging through your favorite recipe book for the upcoming holiday. Here’s a quick menu featuring appetizers, a main course, dessert and the perfect beverage for your 4th of July party menu. Don’t forget to place a stack of your Ecru Napkins nearby because this menu is finger-lickin good!
Appetizer – The 4th of July just wouldn’t be complete without some good ‘ole deviled eggs. This sweet and tangy picnic fare is a crowd pleaser you simply can’t resist. For the best results, prepare eggs the day before and let them chill overnight.
Main meal – No one wants to fuss over a complicated dish, especially out in the midsummer heat. Stick to a traditional main course of hearty cheeseburgers and hotdogs. Kids and adults will enjoy the ballpark classics. A side of potato salad and fresh fruit will keep ’em coming back for more!
Dessert – Serve up delicious cheesecake squares that are easy-to-eat sans fork. Decorate the dessert with patriotic flair using blueberries in one corner and stripes with red gel food icing to replicate an American flag.
Drinks – For a fancy take on the traditional lemonade, add fresh raspberries and blackberries to a can of store-bought pink lemonade. Mix well and chill for a few hours before serving over ice. You can also add mint to the mix or make one regular batch and spike the other for the adults.
