I have the perfect 4th of July recipes to share with you. These easy recipes will ensure your 4th of July celebration goes on without a hitch. From appetizers to main course to dessert, I’ve got you covered!

A few years ago, we celebrated the 4th of July with friends and family and we had a blast! We decorated our home and had an all-American celebration. You can read all about it in my 4th of July Celebration post. Plus, you can read a little about my journey to becoming a U.S. citizen and get some free printables to decorate your home this 4th of July!

This year, our celebration will be much more low key, but there will still be plenty of food for my family to enjoy! Take a look below for my suggestions for your 4th of July menu. I’ve included some Instant Pot recipes as well as some traditional ones. You can make just one or a few of these recipes, or you can make them all for the complete, perfect 4th of July meal.
