    Cool July 4th Party Recipes!

    Primal Fuel
    I'm an Aussie married to an American and we're hosting a large 4th of July party this year. Can anyone help me with some recipes for fun party food? The main course will be easy - MEAT cooked on the grill! So I'm interested in things like bite sized snacks and desserts. I'd like to impress my family with some primal friendly recipes.

    My dude hosts a pig roast once a summer. I think the recipe is something like:

    1) Find pig
    2) Kill pig
    3) Dig pit
    4) Light pit on fire
    5) Drop in pig
    6) Bury pig
    7) Wait
    8) Dig up pig and eat

    Also bacon wrapped shrooms are amazeballs.

    Jalapenos sliced in half and filled with goat cheese and seasonings (salt, chili powder, paprika) wrapped in bacon and grilled.

    Delicious.

    If you have great meat and salads hopefully no one will miss the usual crap.

    Watermelon is a staple for my husband on 4th of July. Last year I made maple bacon ice cream rootbeer floats. It was awesome til the ice cream melted & I had bacon floaties in my root beer.

    mostly we just have burgers & hotdogs though.

    You've got some great ideas above, but just wanted to add... the most popular dessert at our family's yearly 4th of July party has always been the individual red white & blue cheesecakes. You can use a primal cheesecake recipe to make individual size ones (in muffin tins with festive/patriotic paper cups) then top half of them with blueberries and half with strawberries. Silly and trite, perhaps, but it's yummy and looks very patriotic.

    And watermelon, who doesn't love cold juicy watermelon in the middle of summer? Have fun and Happy 4th!
