4th July sees the USA celebrate Independence Day. Here over “the pond” we want to help them celebrate and what better way than through food!
Did you know Independence day is commonly associated with barbecuing, cold beer, family picnics, crumbly strawberry shortcakes and all the hot dogs you can eat!
And in recent years the theme of red white and blue food has gone Pinterest crazy. Check out our favourite ideas below.
#1 Flag Cookies
We love this idea because it’s seriously simple, just bake square cookies, cover in icing or frosting and use M&Ms or even smarties to create your flag. A perfect job for little helpers!
#3 Red White and Blue Daiquiris
No party is complete without drinks, have a go at these fabulous patriotic daiquiris. For a non-alcoholic version just remove the rum.
#3 Blue (yes blue) Burger
Ok we’ve got to be honest we aren’t so sure about this one, the one thing we are sure of it will get the conversation going!
#4 Flag Pizza
Ok so another flag food but why not! Use bacon and mushrooms to make your flag.
#5 Super Cute Strawberries
What a great way to decorate strawberries and a perfect way to get one of your 5 a day in!
#6 Perfect Pie
You can’t celebrate anything american without a pie. We love this cherry and blueberry recipe from My Recipes.com
