Fourth of July Recipes

Most of us have our favorite dishes and traditions for the Fourth of July so, instead of giving you a menu, I thought I would give you some new dishes to add to our old standbys and favorites like hamburgers, hot dogs, corn on the cob, potato salad and baked beans.

  • Don’t wait until Christmas to make pretzels rolled in chocolate. Roll pretzel sticks in melted white chocolate and then in red and blue sprinkles. Serve in a pretty glass or vase.
  • Add a tablespoon of sugar to your deviled eggs for extra flavor.

Today’s Recipes:

Pig and Cow Burgers

1 lb. hamburger
1/4 lb. Italian sausage (or any sausage)
1 egg
1/2 onion, chopped

Mix everything and make into patties. Chill for 30 minutes. Grill. Add a slice of pepper jack cheese and a dollop of barbecue sauce and serve on an onion bun.


Tomato Cucumber Salad

2-3 tomatoes, cubed
2-3 cucumbers, cubed
Fresh dill, to taste
Salt and pepper, to taste
2 Tbsp. sour cream

2 large tomatoes, cut in 6th’s

Mix veggies and divide onto 6 squares of heavy duty foil. Mix dressings and drizzle on veggies. Seal well. Grill on each side for 10-13 minutes.

I haven’t tried this recipe myself but these cookies sure sounded good. They seem perfect for the Fourth so I thought you might like to try them.

4 cups flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
