With the Fourth of July just a month away, now is an excellent time to start giving some real consideration to what your culinary plans might be for America’s birthday. Obviously, millions of people all over the country celebrate the federal holiday by enjoying barbecues and picnics with their friends, neighbors, and families, but the question of what foods to prepare at these gatherings is bound to come up for you regardless of whether you are hosting a party or just looking for something to bring to a potluck.
The best way to celebrate the red, white, and blue this Independence Day is to bring a tasty dish to your party, and the following are some of the most mouth-watering recipes we here at Deli Direct can offer:
Grilled Chicken Breasts
Assuming you’re going to have the grill going, consider putting together some grilled chicken breasts basted in a barbecue sauce mixed with a fine hot pepper sauce for kick. Just salt and pepper the chicken before grilling, then add the sauce toward the end. There is no safer meal than grilled chicken for the Fourth of the July.
Stuffed Bacon Cheeseburgers
Most people have eaten a cheeseburger at some point, but have you ever enjoyed a stuffed bacon cheeseburger? Take about a quarter-pound of hamburger meat and form something of a bowl with the raw meat. Then, stuff it full of shredded Wisconsin cheese and cooked bacon. Deli Direct offers a number of delicious block cheese that can be shredded, so there are plenty to choose from, and some people even add in a few diced onions or other items before forming a “lid” of sorts to top the burger. Once grilled, the cheese and other goodies ooze from the burger, which makes for a decadent and delicious meal.
If you’re looking for a delicious side dish, consider putting together a classic potato salad with cooked russet potatoes, some hard-boiled eggs, celery, a little bit of mayonnaise and some of the delicious mustards we offer here at Deli Direct.
Party Dips Galore
Another great option, especially if you’re just bringing something along for a potluck, is one of our many party dips. Whether you’re serving them with chips, veggies, or crackers, these dips can be a perfect complement to any meal. Our Cool as a Cucumber dip is great for the July heat, while our Gringo Guacamole is cool and rich, too. The Kickin’ Tomato Horseradish dip offers a little more spice, and the Western Ranch dip is about as universally delicious as veggie dips get. Any one of these would make for a great side at a July Fourth gathering, and our dessert dips are equally excellent for those that need something sweet to top everything off!
As with all gatherings, Deli Direct is happy to help provide the food for any party or gathering. Hopefully these party ideas help you get yourself organized for the most patriotic party of the year. This July Fourth, enjoy these most delicious of foods as you gear up for a fun night under the fireworks!
