The Perfect Fourth of July Menu
The Fourth of July cookout is an American tradition defined by an abundance of finger foods and booze and often, too few napkins (it’s okay—it’s time to rethink those matching t-shirts anyway). This year, we’ve got you covered with a menu that reimagines the classics.
Smash Burgers with Garlic Butter Buns
We’ve all been to cookouts where the burger situation is only average—not these smash burgers. We use brioche buns and top with all of the classics: cheese, lettuce, tomato, and white onion. Oh, and make sure to slather a little more garlic butter on those buns. True patriots know there’s no such thing as too much.
Grilled Peaches with Ricotta
We love to marry sweet, juicy fruits with the charry taste of the grill. Sear a combination of peaches and nectarines, or whatever stone fruit is freshest from the market. If you really want to show off, make the ricotta at home, but we won’t tell anyone if you go with store-bought.
