This Independence Day, cook up a spread of star-spangled 4th of July recipes worthy of America’s birthday. From traditional 4th of July foods (we’re talking about you, coleslaw and potato salad) to modern, creative finger foods, we’ve rounded up mouthwatering recipes to help you celebrate the summer holiday in the most delicious way possible. Fire up the grill and make some of the best all-American entrees, keeping it classic with fried chicken, smoky meats, and burgers of all kinds — or even trying some zesty seafood recipes that taste like you’re eating beachside. You’ll of course have to pair it with some delicious 4th of July apps, refreshing summer salads, or the best desserts to cap off a backyard barbecue. And don’t forget the drink recipes to pair with all your cookout fare — it is the American way, after all.
Beef and Mushroom Burgers
These half-veggie, half-beefy burgers get an extra dose of flavor from mushrooms. With cheese and all the fixin’s, they might just be the new ultimate burger.
Grilled Chicken Wings
Once you toss this game-day classic on the grill, you’ll never go back to boring fried wings again.
Chilled Tortellini Romesco
You’ll never go back to plain old pasta once you’ve had a cheesy side salad. Bonus: the Romesco sauce can also be tossed with potatoes, or used as a dip or a killer sandwich spread.
Chicago-Style Chicken Dogs
Sweet and spicy pickles and peppers make these grilled dogs a real winner.
