Summer has three top cook-outs: one marks the beginning, one celebrates independence, and the last cookout ends the season. The Fourth of July falls in the middle of the cook-out season. Depending on your location, you can enjoy local fireworks or set off your own; however, this is a nighttime activity. If you are spending time with family and friends, you have a whole afternoon to get through. As a result, you and your guests enjoy a wide spread of decadent foods. Like Memorial Day, most hosts will prepare typical or traditional foods. They are crowd-pleasers and have withstood the test of time. If you are willing to go the extra mile, you can impress your guest with a fresh pallet of food. If you do not want to put all your eggs in one basket this year, pick a few that are budget friendly for you. Prepare them and see how they are received.
In celebration of the summer and the upcoming Fourth of July cookout, here is a top 10 list of fourth of July recipes!
