It's America's birthday and it's time to celebrate! Do you ever struggle with wanting to throw a keto-friendly party at your house, but worry that non-keto people won't be satisfied? Have no fear! Whether you're having a backyard barbecue or a picnic in the park, we've got you covered. We're counting down the Top 10 Fourth of July recipes to make everyone at your Independence Day party happy.
Cocktails are usually off limits when you're on keto because they are always full of sugary fruits and syrups. Not today! We've got two Fourth of July recipes that you're going to love: Strawberry Lemon Lime Cocktail and Loaded Bloody Mary. Learn more about Keto Alcohol before you pour a beverage.
Tip: If these aren't your style, we highly recommend that you check out these low carb mojitos.
Are you a fan of egg, potato, macaroni, or chicken salads? Well, this cauliflower salad is an instant classic. It's the perfect lightweight and cool treat to pair with hot dogs, burgers, or even ribs. It's an even better replacement to those aforementioned starchy side salads.
Tip: This recipe is great as it is, but feel free to zest it up with some more bacon or by adding more protein with extra eggs.
If cauliflower isn't your thing, that's okay! We highly recommend trying our Sriracha Egg Salad and Curry Egg Salad recipes. Either way, your guests are going to be enjoying these Fourth of July recipes by the spoonful.
You can replicate this exact recipe using any berry you have on hand. Strawberries and blueberries would make this recipe less tart and more sweet, while blackberries and raspberries are for those who don’t love overly sweet desserts!
Finger foods are the name of the game at parties and we've got just the recipe for you: Keto Pigs in a Blanket. With this recipe, the only real prep work involved is in making the crust, but don't fret. It has only four ingredients!
Tip: We highly recommend dipping these babies into our Low Carb BBQ Sauce.
Don't want the crust? You could try our Little Smokies recipe instead! Out of all these Fourth of July recipes, you are sure to please your guests!
Holidays call for celebration and celebration calls for themed desserts. We’ve made these Keto Sugar Cookies into cups so you can fill them with festive colored berries and cream! You can even omit the cups and make them normal cookie shape, topping them with blue and red colored frosting. Possibilities are endless.
It's not a party until there's artichoke dip, making this our number four pick for our top 10 Fourth of July recipes! No matter where I am or what party I am attending, if I see artichoke dip, it's going in my mouth.
There's something about the flavor profiles of spinach or artichoke together that make this dip a favorite. Combine that with cheese and I am SOLD!
Tip: You can use all kinds of Keto Chips for this dip, but you could also try our recipes for Flax Seed Crackers, Cheese Crackers, Pepperoni Chips, or Parmesan Crisps to create the perfect tasty dipper for your party!
What better way to cool off on a hot July day than with ice cream? I don’t know a single person who doesn’t love ice cream. I also don’t know a single person who doesn’t love easy and convenient recipes. We’ve combined both with this Keto Mason Jar Ice Cream! We recreated my favorite ice cream flavor, butter pecan, into a easy to make, no equipment needed recipe. Does it get any better?!
Does it even need to be said? This party favorite is sure to please everyone. These wings are as crispy as deep fried wings without drying out the tender meat inside making them the ultimate keto friendly finger food.
Tip: We have developed an amazing Asian Wing Sauce that we think you would absolutely enjoy with this dish.
Want a little more meat instead? May we recommend the Original Keto Chicken Tenders? Don't forget the Frank's hot sauce and blue cheese!
This Keto Broccoli Salad is one of my favorite ways to take a boring low carb vegetable, broccoli, to the next level with minimal effort. A quick blanch and some mix-ins and you’ve got the next best summer cook out side dish!
I am a dip fanatic! It’s one of those foods I have no guilt in over eating. You can really never know what a proper serving size is when your just shoveling it into your mouth so why not just enjoy. This French Onion Dip using fresh herbs and caramelized onions to take your dip status to the next level!
Deviled eggs are an instant party classic and always the first to go at any event! Not only are they quick and easy to make, but they have a high fat content – something we all look for in our meals. You can make as little as 6 for a great, single serve lunch or as many as 24 for a holiday party appetizer.
As you probably know by now, Megha loves her eggs and she has perfected many variations of this recipe. If you want something a little more exciting than the traditional simple deviled egg, give these a try:
Whether it's the Superbowl or the Fourth of July, nachos are a verifiable crowd pleaser and we've perfected keto nachos. We've come up with two different ways for you to enjoy your favorite nacho toppings.
You can top these chips with queso fresco, cheddar cheese, guacamole, cherry tomatoes, your favorite protein, or any other keto friendly toppings you might enjoy!
Drinks are flowing, inhibitions are lowered and food is abundant. Isn’t that what makes the holiday season so great? So add this incredibly easy to make loaded keto cauliflower casserole to your list of dishes to make this Fourth of July.
It's crispy on the outside and soft and creamy on the inside. What else can you want in an appetizer party food?
Tip: Finding low carb marinara sauce is nearly impossible, but we have the secret. It's Raos Marinara Sauce, a low-carb sauce that can be found in local grocery stores!
This is a staple in our home and as soon as you try them, we have no doubt that they will become a staple in your home as well. They are so full of flavor and easy to make. There are two ways to make keto jalapeno poppers and both are amazing. Try the Bacon Wrapped version or the Air Fryer version.
Tip: If they are too spicy as they are, go a little heavier on the cream cheese. If you want them spicier, add a little Sriracha to the side to dip these into. You won't regret it!
Don't stop there, you can add additional ingredients (chorizo, queso fresco, mushrooms, onions, etc.) to the inside to make it the perfect jalapeno popper for you and your crew!
