Fireworks 4th of July Soiree

Happy 4th of July! It’s time to gather with family and friends to celebrate our nation’s birthday! The 4th of July soiree is easy to pull off if you keep it simple and fun. Hebrew National All-Beef Franks are essential for our summer and our 4th of July.

Hebrew National All-Beef Franks are made from premium cuts of beef from the front half of the cow and I know that with Hebrew National I’m getting the best of the best. It’s why we serve Hebrew National at all of our summer BBQ’s.

There’s nothing more American than the All-Beef Frank, so to get ready we wanted to share some essential and easy ideas to really make your 4th of July Soiree special!

6 All-American Songs For Your 4th of July Playlist

    • Miley Cyrus – “Party in the U.S.A.”
    • Tom Petty – “American Girl”
    • Bruce Springsteen – “Born In The U.S.A.”
    • Lenny Kravitz – “American Woman”
    • James Brown – “Living in America”
    • Jay-Z and Alicia Keys – “Empire State of Mind”

Of course you’ll need plenty of food and drinks to serve everyone and for the kids we created these firecracker beef franks on a stick.  The combinations of these toppings on these beef franks are not Kosher.

\I like how with one Hebrew National All-Beef Frank and a little crescent roll dough, piece of bell pepper and blue food coloring you can create a delicious and unique treat. Kids at your 4th of July soiree are going to love these but so are adults!

Start by wrapping each beef frank with dough.

Using small star shapes for cutouts, you can really add dimension and fun to your firecracker beef frank.

Bake at 375 for 15 minutes.

I also like to get creative with foods and drinks. Red, white and blue deviled eggs are simple to make and the red bell pepper stars really make these eggs stand out. The patriotic punk is just a soda with strawberries and blueberries. A fun and delicious twist on a 4th of July drink.

That same star shape creates the perfect cutout for star shaped watermelon for a blueberry and watermelon fruit salad. The firecracker beef franks on a stick are the perfect way to add some fun to your 4th of July soiree. You can also grill and serve your favorite Hebrew National All-Beef Franks.

The best thing about celebrations and soirees is getting to spend time with family and friends. Making memories and celebrating new and old traditions. It’s the best way to kick off summer and a great way to have a little fun!

What makes a Hebrew National kosher hot dog premium? It’s all about what makes the cut (And what doesn’t). We’re choosy about what goes into our franks – we use only premium cuts of 100% kosher beef from the front half of the cow and then choose the best from that. No artificial flavors, colors, fillers or by-products. When your hot dog is Kosher, that’s a hot dog you can trust! For more summer fun with Hebrew National, visit facebook.com/hebrewnational.
