Ring in the 4th of July with a Bang

With the 4th of July just a day away, we know many of you are throwing the ultimate summer bash! We thought we would take the guess work out of what to make and supply you with the perfect party recipe. A party is only as good as the food at it, right? With these ultimate burgers, your party is sure to be a hit! We’ve even added in a little fun treat recipe to ensure that you are the talk of the town. Best of all they’re so simple that you’ll have more time to enjoy your party!

The “Ultimate” Hamburger

  • 1 lb ground sirloin
  • 1 onion, minced
  • 1 tablespoon ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon sun-dried tomato, cut thinly
  • 1/4 cup garlic, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon Tabasco sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon honey mustard

Directions: Here comes the hard part! Combine the ingredients, form patties and stick them on the grill. For some extra flair, create a smorgasbord of toppings for your guests to create their own custom burger fit to their liking! My personal favorite is some pepper jack cheese and avocado, yumm.

For the perfect final touch spark some fireworks with stars & stripes
fruit pops  They make look seem difficult to make, but you’d be surprised at how simple they are.




  • Watermelon
  • Green Apple

Directions: Start with two different sized star-shaped cookie cutters. Slice the watermelon and apples into sections big enough to a lot for the cookie cutter. Use the larger star-shaped cookie cutter for the watermelon. Cut out watermelon stars and set aside. Now take the smaller star-shaped cookie cutter and cut out the apple slices. Once you are complete carefully slide the apple center into the watermelon slices and accent with a blueberry on each. PartyCity twirled blue curling ribbon around cake pop sticks to create the stripes. We think that finished them off perfectly!

So now that we’ve taken the hard part out of the party planning; sit back, relax and enjoy yourself! After all you deserve it for throwing this fabulous party.
