*Wild* Recipes to Add Some Flavor to Your 4th of July Weekend
One of America’s favorite holidays – The 4th of July – is right around the corner, and we couldn’t be more excited for the celebration to come! The 4th of July is dedicated to celebrating the independence of America, but it also consists of a lineup of some of America’s favorite activities. From grilling burgers and hot dogs, to conversing with family and friends in the warm summer heat, to ending the day with the thunder of booming fireworks.
BUT, there’s more – your 4th of July is about to get a whole sweeter, because we have some delicious wild blueberry recipes to add even more fun and flavor to your 4th of July weekend. Whether you’re grilling for yourself, or partaking in a potluck, we have plenty of recommendations for dishes you can serve up to keep the celebration going.
Now, is it really the 4th of July if you don’t have someone manning the grill at all times? Instead of just serving the classic burgers and dogs, spice up your grill menu by adding these turkey meatballs glazed with flavorful Wild Blueberry bbq sauce. This dish makes a delicious side or appetizer, served with toothpicks and napkins to keep eating clean and kids’ hands less sticky!
Speaking of spice, kick it up a notch with these Wild Blueberry jalapeno poppers. Stuffed with goat cheese, wild blues, garlic and chili powder, these poppers are coated in breadcrumbs and served to perfection. If your party prefers poppers with a little less of a kick, they also go well with a side of cream cheese to help tone down the heat.
Looking for something red, white and blue to help elevate the celebration? These red velvet and vanilla ice cream sandwiches topped with wild blueberries are festive and delicious! These treats will help keep the party cool and all the stomachs satisfied.
Another easy treat to whip up are these wild blueberry coconut yogurt pops. Made with coconut yogurt, wild blueberries, lemon juice and maple syrup, these healthy pops will easily freeze overnight and are ready to be served at the kids’ request.
If you’re looking to forego pie for something on the simpler side, these wild blueberry buckle bites roll pie and cake into one delicious dish. Cut into perfectly sized squares, guests can indulge in these sweet treats while mingling and walking about.
Last, but certainly not least, we have a thirst quenching wild blueberry sangria recipe that will keep the adults happy while the kids play! No matter your beverage of choice on the 4th, this sangria mixed with chopped fruit and wild blues makes for a great addition.
