It’s almost America’s birthday! So get ready to raise the flag, set the fireworks, don the stars and stripes, throw on flip-flops, arrange a caterer, fill the beer fridge, and cue Star-Spangled Banner on Spotify (Jimi Hendrix version of course!).

Declare your freedom from killing yourself  in the kitchen this Independence Day and have your 4th of July party catered. Not only does booking a caterer mean relaxing and having fun with your nearest and dearest, but you also get to indulge in the best American food cooked by professionals. Trust us, there’s no better way to celebrate Independence than that!

You might want traditional All-American food like classic BBQ burgers, corn on the cob, hotdogs, sausage and peppers, and coleslaw, and finish it off with a patriotic cake in red, white, and blue.

Side Dishes

Is it even a July 4th barbecue or picnic without side dishes? Like a side dish of corn on the cob, some roasted veggies, or yummy baked beans. Bring some healthy greens to the table with a traditional garden salad, or go for a classic cold pasta salad with farm-fresh veggies and covered in tangy Italian dressing.

Simple Starters

Everyone loves getting a party started with some snack food. Normally you’d just have big bowls of tortilla chips, potato chips, and some pretzels with some side dips But with a catered party you can have a more diverse range of finger food and appetizers. Or you can still keep it simple if you prefer, with cheese and crackers.

Hot Wings

Classic, juicy, and spicy hot wings are quintessentially American, and there’s no better time to get your fingers sticky with this patriotic cuisine than the day we declared our independence. Especially when there are so many yummy and unique spicy and flavoring combinations to choose from!

Jalapeño Poppers

Speaking of spice, fireworks shouldn’t be the only thing popping off at your place this July 4th. And there’s no better way to turn up the heat than with some smoking hot and delicious Jalapeño poppers. They’re always a guaranteed party pleaser!

Wagyu Burgers

If you really want to impress your guests and tantalize their tastebuds, try some fabulously fancy and delicious burger sliders. Drenched in craft brew and char-grilled, before being topped off with caramelized onions and some yummy brie, these types of trendy burgers are a massive hit at any party.  

All-American Dessert

With strawberries and blueberries both in season, caterers can get creative with red, white, and blue all-American themed desserts. And long before Jason Biggs made some pretty questionable pastry choices, pies filled with all kinds of fresh summer fruits have been a traditional dessert in the USA. So if you want your July 4th party to be as American as apple pie, you’ll need to make sure you have some on offer!
