This burger takes you beyond the ordinary for a special spicy treat. Sandwiched in-between a toasted bun and the sizzling grilled burger is a cheesy hot jalapeno pepper. To settle the flavor, guacamole is lightly spread across the roll and then layered with lettuce, salsa con queso dip, ripe olives and onion. Let the celebration begin!
This hearty sandwich is a quick and impressive summer party entrée. Hollow out a round loaf of Italian bread and fill it with layers of zesty olive spread and your favorite deli meat and cheese. Ours has layers of turkey, salami and bologna with Swiss and provolone cheese. Cut into wedges and serve. This simple recipe is great to make ahead. No leftovers here.
Cherry Tomato Mozzarella Saute
Are cherry tomatoes taking over your garden? Use your bounty to create this quick fix: sauté some shallots, garlic and fresh thyme with oil and add your tomatoes. Once heated, finish it off with cubes of fresh mozzarella. This tasty low-carb side dish will certainly please the palate!
Stars and Stripes Forever Dessert
This whimsical dessert is a big hit with kids and adults alike. Summer’s fresh berries are delightful with a quick creamy dip made of sweetened whipped cream and sour cream. The sugared puff pastry stars are light and crisp. Together they make a festive medley perfect for any get-together.
Create these celebratory cupcakes by tinting the batter with red and blue food coloring and layering the batter into the cupcake liner. Don’t forget to leave some of the batter plain to get the stripped effect. Top it off with white frosting and sprinkle with your favorite red, white and blue sprinkles. Happy Birthday America!
With only three ingredients, these sparklers are sure to be the star of your Fourth of July party. Melt white baking chocolate and roll the pretzel rods into the chocolate. Let your kids help you decorate each rod with extra red, white and blue sprinkles from your Patriotic Cupcakes. Set them on the table as an edible bouquet, but beware—this scrumptious centerpiece won’t last long.
