Like MD-90's thread suggests, it depends on what region you're in. Barbeque is big, as is fried chicken in the South for the Fourth. One good suggestion would be some red/white/blue-themed dessert. Strawberries, Vanilla Ice Cream, and Blueberries, for instance.

I think Barbecue is traditional - whenever I got to my bruv's for July Fourth, they have a neighbourhood barbecue - hot dogs, burgers, pork ribs, chicken - all laced with cholestorol and carcinogens - mmmmm !

Meat cooked outdoors on the barbeque for starters.

Burgers, hot dogs, bratwurst, polish sausage are among my favorites.

If you want to get fancy you can do ribs, steak, or shrimp. You can also grill up some big old portabella mushrooms and zucchini.

If you want to be health conscious, chicken breasts are a good choice.


And you'll need some side dishes. I am a fan of potato salad. Watermelon makes a pretty good summertime fruit choice. Just sit out back and spit the seeds into the grass.

Barbeque all the way.

Typical Fourth of July Menu:

Hot Dogs(White Hots and Red Hots), Hamburgs, Sausage (Italian and Polish), Barbeque Chicken, Ribs, Potato Salad, Macaroni Salad, Egg Salad, Tossed Salad, lobster/clams/Fish is big in the northeast, there is just tons of stuff.

We cannot forget the most important ingredient though. The fourth is not the fourth without mass consumption of alcohol. Beer is the most likely choice for that category.  Laugh out loudD

I'd have to agree with the BBQ ribs. Pork ribs are best with hot sauce. You could have BBQ chicken, too. Add in some hamburgers and hot dogs and everyone's pleased.

My family usually has a variety of sides -- potato salad, macaroni salad, cole slaw, baked beans, potato chips, carrots & celery with dip, and a cake for dessert.



Up, up and away!

Chips 'n dips for starters - make dip using cream cheese (eg Philadelphia) and a packet of dry brown onion soup powder. If you can get Mesquite or BBQ flavour chips (crisps), use just sour cream with chopped up chives as a dip (both dips work well with crudités alsol)

Desert - cheesecake (mmmmm !) or apple pie (mmmmmm !) - and ice cream (preferably Ben and Jerry's with at least a 2/3 brownie or cookie dough content).

Sorry that we don't have escargot and pate at our July 4th celebrations.

I usually just have some sort of barbeque for July 4th---hot dogs, hamburgers, steaks, grilled shrimp, etc. Always washed down with copious amounts of alcohol!  Big thumbs up

starters, desert suggestions?

starters...I'm a big fan of layered Bean Dip. get a large but shallow glass dish and start spreading layers: Refried Beans, sour cream, olives, green onions, cheddar cheese, guacamole (fresh guac would be preferred). Usually it's beans on the bottom with the sour cream, onions, olives, cheese on the top. Best to use tortilla chips/strips with these.

Desert: like the others said, ice-cream or pie is good. S'mores are good too.

PS: If you have a source of fireworks there...get some small ones. Especially if there will be young children.

You misunderstood - I'm all in favour of carcinogens and cholestorol - 2 of the five major food groups !

1. Cholestorol
2. Carcinogens
3. Alcohol
4. Sugar
5. Burnt Crunchy Bits

Although I do love escargots and foie gras (ooooh negative karmic resonance).
