The 4th of July is right around the corner and it's the perfect excuse to pig out, all while celebrating our freedom. Classic eats, like burgers, grilled corn, potato salad, corn dogs, pasta salad coleslaw, and all those delicious red, white, and blue desserts, make this one of our favorite holidays for cooking.

Here are some of the most delicious all-American recipes we can find to take that 4th of July BBQ to the next level. Some are old-time classics, others add a new twist, but all are delicious and have us getting that holiday menu ready to go!


Burgers tend to take the lead, as far as main dishes on this favorite holiday, and there are a lot of different takes on what makes a great burger. Whether you like your burger in a one-pound patty or a mini slider, a good burger pretty much makes the meal.

The foodie site Delish gives us this recipe for the Best Ever Burger, with directions on what beef to buy and how to form that perfect patty. This recipe for Burger’n Fries Foil Packs is a clever play on the classic and perfect for a camping trip cookout, as well.

Take that basic burger to the next level with bleu cheese, bacon, avocado, jalapeno, mushrooms, chile, or anything else you fancy. Good Housekeeping gives the classic burger a twist with this BBQ chicken and Cheddar Burger recipe, a tasty option for those looking for something a little different.

Hot Dogs

Next in line is the all-time favorite: the humble hot dog. Some like it in a bun with ketchup, others take this simple meal to the next level. Delish gives us this super simple yet drool-worthy take with the Fried Cheese Hot Dog. Adding bacon to that dog is one surefire hit, as is the classic ‘Grilled Chicago’ style dog. Check out this dessert dog, a Churro Dog from Rachael Ray Every Day. Another classic favorite the chili-dog or chili-cheese Coney, as it is sometimes referred to, makes the list of favorites as well.

Put that hot dog on a skewer and dip it in batter and you have another 4th of July favorite, the corn dog. Done the right way, this fried treat will tempt just about anyone. Check out Delish’s recipe for the perfect one right here.

BBQ ribs find their way to many 4th of July tables. Delish gives us this recipe for the perfect St. Louis Style Ribs, and this one is for oven-baked ribs. If you want something grilled, take a look at this recipe from Food & Wine for Grilled Short Ribs with Smoky Blackberry Barbecue sauce.

Barbecue Chicken

An all-time 4th classic, what can we say about barbecue chicken other than "more, please," and "pass the napkins." From the drumsticks to the wings, this one is a favorite for many, and we can't wait to get some. This recipe from Delish has honey and lime juice in the sauce, as well as a little bit of hot sauce for that sweet and spicy mix.

Moving from the main dishes into the sides, there are some old standbys that we look for every 4th of July that help make that barbecue one we remember until next year.

Grilled corn is one of those cookouts treats you never knew you loved so much. You can top this classic with just about anything your standard butter, salt, or maybe try this Cheddar Bacon Ranch Corn, courtesy of Delish. Taking that grilled corn and mixing it into a salad, salsa, or soup is also a fine way to enjoy the rustic flavor of freshly grilled corn.

Potato Salad

Potato Salad is a standby for the 4th of July, everyone seems to have their own favorite special family recipe. Delish has potato salad in its top 25 recipes for the 4th of July, and we totally agree.

Pasta Salad

Pasta salad is one of those dishes that can be a meal all by itself, and everyone has their own favorite recipe. Whether it is a hearty concoction with lots of meat and veggies or a simple and light accompaniment to your grilled protein, this dish is one of our all the time favorites. This Chicken Caesar Pasta Salad and Tuscan Tortellini Salad look delicious and are sure to please your guests.

Classic Kabobs

Kabobs are fun and make our list of top classic American eats for the 4th of July, and, of course, Delish agrees and gives us this spin on the dish with these Chicken, Bacon, Ranch Skewers.

Kabobs often go the way of steak, peppers, onions, mushrooms, artichokes, tomatoes, chicken, seafood, sausage, and much more. A fun way to keep your guests involved is a DIY skewer station, let them load up what they want, save yourself the prep work, and focus on the grilling!

Dessert Kabobs

The dessert kabob is one of the tastiest and best-looking ways to get that red, white, and blue on your holiday table. Strawberries, cherries, and grapes, paired pound cake, angel’s food cake, marshmallow, or shortcake, then blueberries, chocolate, yogurt, or vanilla drizzle make for a great finish to your cookout. Delish put a kid-friendly spin on the classic with a Banana Split Kebab recipe.

Strawberry Shortcake

Strawberry Shortcake is a classic that can be taken to the next level. For example, this Strawberry Shortcake no-churn ice cream is a cool twist on the classic 4th of July dessert.

The Queso Dog Recipe


  • Hot links
  • Holmes Made Marty’s Roasted Green Chile Salsa
  • Kansas Flavor Bread & Butter Jalapeños
  • Smoked Queso (recipe here)
  • Fresh cilantro
  • Hot dog buns


Preheat your grill for high heat (450ºF) direct grilling.

Thread a skewer thought the center of the hot link. Using a paring knife, starting at one end of the hot link, slice down to the skewer at a 45º angle to the link. Continue cutting down the hot link, one long continuous cut, so that the cut spirals down the hot link until you reach the other end of the link. Remove the skewer.

Grill the hot link until browned on all sides. The spiral cut will allow the link to open up, creating more texture and crevices for the condiments to cling to the link.

Lay the fresh cilantro inside the hot dog bun. Place the hot link on the bed of cilantro. Top the dog with the smoked queso, Holmes Made Marty’s Roasted Green Chile Salsa and Kansas Flavor Bread & Butter Jalapeños.

Baked Chili Cheese Hot Dogs

It's officially summer and what says summer better than an All American Dog - Baked Chili Cheese Hot Dogs with Homemade Chili Sauce that is!!

This is truly one of my husbands favorite things to eat. A Hot Dog - Go Figure! Not a big juicy steak or Italian meal fit for a king!! NO - A HOT DOG! He grew up eating his dogs boiled. That totally grosses me out! I want mine grilled or pan fried. But we both agree these Baked Chili Cheese Hot Dogs are over the top delicious.

What is your favorite way to dress your DOG? There are so many choices there's no way I can remember them all. Like Chicago style or maybe with some Kraut (My mom's fav). Are you a ketchup or mustard (I am raising my hand here) LOVER? Oh and have you ever put mayo on it??

Speaking of Mayo!

There's a great debate, you know, on the best type of MAYO in town!! Head over to join our Foodie Friends of Soulfully Made to weigh in on this one! Even if you don't want to vote, come on over an join us anyway! It's lots of fun, food talk , and more!!

Do you do onions, relish (sweet or dill), or maybe some peppers? Head on down to the comment section and let me know what makes your little heart sing on your frankfurter!! I really do want to know friends.


Start with your ground beef, add your chili powder and spices, pour in tomato sauce, ketchup and water. Squeeze in your mustard and dashes of Worcestershire sauce. Sir it all up really good. Let it simmer for 15 minutes.

Get Ready to Bake

Meanwhile Pan fry your hot dogs for about 5 minutes to brown and cook a bit.

Grab your buns, put 8 buns in a 9 x 13 dish. Top each bun with a hot dog. Then spoon on some delicious chili. Sprinkle with sharp magically divine cheddar cheese. Bake at 400° for 15 to 20 minutes or until the hot dogs start to curl and cheese is all melted.

  • Americans purchase 9 billion hots dogs at retail stores each year. This doesn’t include hot dog stands, sporting events, carnivals, or any other venue, so the number is estimated to be 20 billion!

Recipe Summary

  • 1 pound ground beef (80% lean)
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 2 slices Cheddar cheese
  • 2 extra-long hot dog buns
  • 4 teaspoons mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup

Place half the ground beef on a sheet of plastic wrap. Pat it into a rectangular shape, about 1/2 inch thick, 8 1/2 inches long, and 4 inches wide. Season with salt and pepper. Roll the beef into a log, using the plastic wrap as a guide. Season with more salt and pepper. Wrap the plastic tightly around the log and twist both ends tight. Pat gently to slightly flatten. Repeat with remaining ground beef.

Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate. Remove the burger dogs from the plastic wrap and place on the grill, perpendicular to the grates. Cook until burgers are browned but still pink inside, 4 to 5 minutes, flip, and cook another 2 to 3 minutes. Place a slice of cheese on each burger dog and grill to medium doneness (an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 140 degrees F/60 degrees C). Remove and rest 3 to 4 minutes.

Toast hot dog buns on the grill and spread each with 2 teaspoons mayonnaise. Place burger dog on each bun and squirt 1 tablespoon of ketchup on top.

Asian Beef Kabobs

The other day I went to the store and they had sirloin steaks on sale. So I picked a few up. I wanted to try something new so I decided to make Asian Style Beef Kabobs. I wanted to do a skewer that was reminiscent of a Stir-fry. So I skewered broccoli, whole water chestnuts, peppers and onions. Then I created a nice marinade that was thick and could grab onto the meat and vegetables. This was a great meal. The meat and veggies came out perfect.

Served over steamed rice, this was the perfect meal.

Asian Beef Kabobs

  • 1/2 cup hoisin sauce
  • 2 tbs vegetable oil
  • 2 tbs soy sauce
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper
  • 1 red or green bell pepper, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 red onion, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 can whole water chestnuts, drained
  • 2 cups broccoli florets
  • 1 pound beef sirloin, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • Steamed rice
  • 8 bamboo skewers (soaked) or 6 metal skewers

Cut all of the meat and vegetables into 1-inch pieces. Leave the water chestnuts whole.

In a medium bowl, combine the hoisin, vegetable oil, soy sauce, garlic and crushed red pepper. Mix until combined and then set aside.

Now it is time to skewer. If you are using bamboo skewers you need to soak them for at least 30 minutes. If you are using metal skewers they are good to go. I prefer wide metal skewers as they prevent the meat from spinning when you flip them. However, in this instance the wide skewers were too wide for the water chestnuts and just split them in two. The small metal skewers worked perfectly.

Skewer the meat by alternately adding the meat and veggies. Be careful when skewering the water chestnuts. If you do not skewer them at a perfect 90 degree angle they break. It may take a few tries to get this right. Once you get it, you will be set.

Once all of the skewers are made, place them on a tray and slather them with the marinade. Make sure to rotate the skewers to fully coat the meat and veggies.

Side note – Cover the sheet pan/tray with aluminum foil or plastic wrap and then slather the skewers. That way you can take the meat to the grill. Remove the aluminum foil and carry the cooked meat back to the house. This gets around the raw meat on the tray and further makes your grilling life easier as you only need one tray. This tip works for raw meat every time you grill.

Place the meat on a grill preheated to high heat.

Rotate the meat and grill for roughly 3-4 minutes a side. This varies based on the thickness of your steak pieces, but as always cook to the doneness that you desire. I found that 3-4 minutes per side cooked the steak perfectly and allowed the veggies to get nice grill lines.

Remove from the grill and let sit for a couple minutes before serving.

Serve over steamed rice for a great meal.

These were super tasty kabobs. They were perfect over rice without any extra sauce.

Best Recipes To Make For A Labor Day Cookout

It's a three-day weekend which means an epic cookout or three, so you have to be prepared. This Labor Day, consider making one of these amazing dishes to serve at your own party, or bring to a friends.

Artichoke Dip and Tortilla Chips

The secret is jalapeno. This recipe from All Recipes is a surefire winner. The jalapenos give it a nice kick, and the cheese on top creates a delicious, creamy texture when combined with the mayo. Of course, the artichokes are the real star. Best of all, this dish is naturally gluten-free, so most should be able to eat it.

Watermelon Fire and Ice Salsa

This unique dish swaps out tomatoes for juicy, delicious, sweet watermelon. However, no heat is lost thanks to the inclusion of jalapenos and bell peppers. The salsa lives up to its name, providing a cool refreshing treat with a kick. Get the details on All Recipes.

Chili Lime Chicken Kabobs

Your mouth may already be watering at the thought of this delicious marinated chicken dish. It's delicious and pretty simple to prepare. Marinating the chicken for one hour gives it plenty of flavor, or you can marinate for longer for stronger taste. It's healthy and uses ingredients and spices you probably already have. Check it out on All Recipes.

Is it a hot dog? Is it a burger? It's neither, it's both! It's the best of both worlds. A delicious cheeseburger in hot dog form that you can eat with one hand, this recipe will not disappoint. There's substance where there's style too, because this burger dog is delicious. Check out the full recipe on All Recipes.

This no-bake dessert means you won't overheat in the kitchen, but it will still be the hottest dish at the party. It combines perennial favorites Oreos and cream cheese to create a delicious, homemade truffle to die for. Choose white chocolate, chocolate, or even butterscotch for a tasty shell, if you want to deviate from this recipe via All Recipes.

This insanely delicious and addictive recipe is simple, but the results are not for the faint of heart. It's extremely sugary, extremely tasty, and probably a health risk. Nonetheless, it's completely worth it. Saltines, chocolate, butter, and brown sugar combine to make something incredibly divine. You won't know how you lived without it. Check All Recipes for appropriate quantities.
