Celebrate the 4th of July with 5 soulful feasts

Take your tastebuds on a culinary journey across the USA this Independence Day

If American food means your usual burgers and fries, why not get creative for Independence Day this 4 July? Po’ boys, mac ’n’ cheese, hot dogs, chowder, waffles and fried chicken – it doesn’t get much more American than this.

Hot dogs with barbecue sauce, maple bacon and onion rings

Quintessentially American… and sometimes a tad boring. Not these. Stack with onion rings, barbecue sauce and crisp beef bacon and they’ll become your go-to favourite.

Lobster po’boys

Load up finger rolls with lobster, salad and cornichons and serve a moreish herby, spicy mayo on the side. These certainly won’t hang around for long…

Creamy seafood chowder

This hearty East Coast soup is often made with clams. Our easy version combines cod, prawns, potatoes and sweetcorn with a creamy base.

Cornmeal waffles with fried chicken

For a true taste of the American South, enjoy these finger-licking waffles and fried chicken, drizzled with a sensational maple hot sauce.

Truffled mac ’n’ cheese

What isn’t there to love about this easy cheesy favourite? Comfort food at its best, this truffled version with broccoli is the ultimate pasta bake.
