4th of July Favorites

4th of July is next week!  Here are a few of my favorite 4th of July recipes from years past:

My favorite rib recipe. Cook in the oven and finish off on the grill. Amazing!

Can't go wrong with this delicious pulled pork recipe made in the slow cooker!

Coconut Meringue Pie

I have made this pie several times over the past few months and it is amazing! It has become a staple at our family gatherings. This pie uses simple ingredients and requires no heavy cream. That is a plus in my book because I don't usually have it on hand. 

This pie tastes better than any coconut pie we've had in a restaurant. My favorite part of the cake is the meringue. It is magnificent! I like to make this the day before I serve it and store it in the fridge. This pie is a must for your July 4th cookout!

Patriotic Deviled Eggs

Aren't these Red, White and Blue deviled eggs cute?! I saw a few blog posts around Easter for dyed hard boiled eggs. I thought they were so cute. I decided to give them and try for the 4th of July. They looked and tasted great! These deviled eggs would be a great addition to your holiday BBQ next week.

The dying process is very simple and doesn't require any vinegar. It requires only three ingredients - peeled hard boiled eggs, water and food coloring. I let the eggs sit in the dye for about 2 hours and then sliced them for deviled eggs. They had a great ring of color around the edge of the egg. I thought they looked great! The possibilities are endless! I am already planning on some orange and blue eggs for the upcoming football season. Have fun with it!

Flag Cupcake Cake

Do you need an easy dessert for the 4th of July? Look no further! This Flag Cupcake Cake is simple and makes a great presentation. I used a box of yellow cake mix for the cupcakes and made the buttercream. If you don't want to make the buttercream (you will really be missing out), feel free to use a can of store-bought frosting. My tip to make store-bought frosting more like homemade is to whip it with a handheld mixer. That will lighten it up and make it easier to pipe on the cupcakes.

Cheesy Bacon Wrapped Hot Dogs

Looking for an easy and delicious 4th of July recipe? Look no further! These cheesy bacon wrapped hot dogs are awesome! We are not big hot dog fans, but we both absolutely loved these hot dogs! How could we not? Cheese and bacon? YUM!

I used Oscar Mayer Bun Length hot dogs. I'm really not sure why all hot dogs aren't bun length. Doesn't make sense. #deepthoughts Anyway, I stuffed each hot dog with American cheese and wrapped each dog in two slices of precooked bacon. You can use any cheese you like. I used American cheese because it melts so much better than other cheeses. I also highly suggest using the precooked bacon (or cook it yourself) so the bacon gets nice and crispy.  I am not a fan of chewy bacon! The dogs can be prepared ahead of time and baked when you are ready for them. They would be a great addition to your 4th of July celebration next week or just a quick Summer lunch!
