Other great ideas for your July 4th event:

Wienie Station (Hot Dogs, Corn Dogs and Bratwurst with toppings)

Chicken Tostadas with Firecracker Slaw (make it spicy!)

Assorted Grilled Cheese Sandwiches (such as Melted Brie Cheese and Apricot; Mozzarella, Tomato and Basil; and American Cheese with Tomato and Bacon)

For dessert … what about an Ice Cream Sundae Buffet?  Include Vanilla Ice Cream with your choice of toppings!  We like Candy Bar Bits, Chocolate Fudge, Caramel Sauce, Strawberry Sauce, Raspberry Sauce, Crème Anglaise, Whipped Cream, Maraschino Cherries, Fresh Fruit and Berries, and Assorted Chopped nuts!  Who wouldn’t love this?!

Don’t forget a frozen drink!  Go for red, white or blue colored drinks like strawberry margaritas, or stick to a classic like lemonade with vodka, or summer brew!  You can’t go wrong with frozen anything!
