When you have a 4th of July Barbecue, there are a few essential dishes that you should include.

Potato Salad

Potato salad is one of the items that is easy to make and that many people enjoy. There are different ways that you can make potato salad, but you can add what you want to make it taste good.

You want to use a yellow potato in order to get the best flavor. Try to avoid using the Russet potatoes because these tend to fall get soft when they are cooked. Boil the potatoes until they are tender, and then drain them on a paper towel. Dice the potatoes in small squares, and then put them in a bowl. Add mustard, onions, salt and pepper to the potatoes. You can also add mayonnaise and relish for an added flavor.

Mac & Cheese

Macaroni and cheese is another dish that is popular at barbecues. If you are looking for an easy way to make the dish, and then get a box that has a packet of cheese in it. All you have to do is boil the macaroni and add the cheese to the noodles. Milk and a small amount of butter should be added to make the macaroni creamy.

You can also make macaroni and cheese from scratch. Get a box of elbow macaroni and boil until the noodles are tender. When the noodles are done, add a large pack of shredded cheddar cheese and a few slices of cheese from a block of cheese. Mix everything together and pour into a bowl.

Baked Beans

Baked beans are one of the things that every 4th of July barbecue should have. You can get baked beans at your grocery store that is in a can if you don’t have time to make your own.

There are several flavors of baked beans depending on what your guests like to eat. You can also get a can of beans at your store and add barbecue sauce to them. Don’t overcook the beans because they will get too soft, and they won’t be good to eat.

Apple Pie

Apple pie is the American dessert that must be at your barbecue. Grocery stores make apple pies, but they are usually not as good as frozen pies. Pies that are found in the freezer section are easy to heat, and they are already cooked. You can make a pie by getting a pie crust and adding fresh apple slices. A mix of yellow and red apples gives the best flavor.
