Fourth of July Menus with Spark

Do you have a yearly 4th of July barbeque?  Tired of offering the same menu each and every year, but don’t have tons of time to learn a whole new menu?  With a little help or a twist on an old favorite you can offer a more sophisticated menu. Try these tasty ideas from caterers in Cleveland that will spark a great party.

Crab boil. Break out the newspaper and hammers!  A traditional crab boil is an easy afternoon meal that an Akron caterer can set up for you.  Simply add crabs to a pre-prepared boil and drain them after just a few minutes.  Load them up in stainless steel bucket and put them right on the table.  Don’t worry about plates – they are normally served on newspaper as guests eat with their hands.

Grilled corn on the cob. You can do a lot more with fresh corn on the cob than just boil it.  Make a compound butter by mixing chili powder, fresh herbs and sweet butter.  Spread over the corn, wrap in foil and put on the grill.  The corn will caramelize and taste great!

Pulled pork. Put the hamburgers and hot dogs aside and try something different.  Slow cook a pork butt and add a homemade barbeque sauce.  Serve on crusty sandwich rolls with coleslaw and pickles for a summertime treat.

Biscuits. Tired of rolls?  Caterers in Cleveland know that biscuits are a versatile substitute.  Biscuits are great with fried chicken, make an amazing base for strawberry shortcake and even make great holders for sausage sandwiches.

Berry cobbler or strawberry shortcake. Berries are at their peak in the summer.  Take advantage of their natural sweetness by using them in a delicious dessert.  Cobblers, shortcakes and pies are just a few ways to enjoy summertime berries.

Fourth of July doesn’t have to be bland with the same menu every year.  Just a few quick changes can really help your meal to spark fun and lively conversation.  It’s not too late to have Special Moments help you with your summer picnic or party.  Call us today to discuss your next event.

With Many Thanks!
