July 4th is a Treat

To me, July 4th was always the peak of summertime. I love spending the day seeing everyone in their red, white, and blue garb, cooking out and eating hamburgers and hotdogs, and ending the night with stellar fireworks.

Growing up in a military town, Independence Day was no joke and everyone around was buzzing with excitement for the day.

I never used to be adventurous with my food and stuck to the basics: hotdog with ketchup and mustard, potato or pasta salad, and baked beans.

NOW I try to squeeze in as much delicious, red-white-and-blue themed food as I can!

the makeup of red, white, and blue Cheeseburgers

Blue cheese stuffed burgers are bursting with flavor and American pride. Each bite contains a sharp yet creamy contrast from the cheese, topped with crisp, fresh veggies.

  • Red: slices of juicy tomatoes for bursts of freshness
  • White: grilled white onion for a savory crunch
  • Blue: light kicks of crumbled blue cheese

How to: Make red, white, and blue Cheeseburgers

ground beef burgers

Break up a pound of ground beef into a bowl.

Stir to combine thoroughly.

red white blue cheeseburger patties

Divide the mixture into fourths and form into patties. Make a slight dent in the middle of the patty for a nice even burger when cooked.

Using an outdoor grill or indoor grill pan, cook a round slice of white onion for 5 minutes over medium-high heat. 

Grill the patties over medium-high heat for about 3 minutes on each side for a burger of medium doneness.

Top with onion, sliced tomato, and lettuce and serve on a toasted bun.

Enjoy with your other red, white, and blue themed sides!

  2. We usually make burgers with olive aioli. So we’ll have to try this one out this weekend to shake things up. It looks really tasty. Thanks for the idea.

    These look delicious! As the current lockdown in the UK (kinda) ends on the 4th July so I was going to have a bit of an Independence day celebration, I think I need to add these to the menu.

    Thank you x
