Food Ideas for 4th of July

Independence Day is right around the corner and many of us are celebrating it a little bit differently this year. We may not be able to flock to the beaches or gather in large groups like we used to, however, that does not mean that your holiday can’t be great! There is nothing more American than a barbeque! And what makes a great barbeque? The food! TheLAShop is here to help you wet your palette with these savory 4th of July food ideas!

Deep Fry Everything

Planning the perfect backyard 4th of July party isn't as hard as you think. You don’t have to have a large kitchen or spend a long time preparing a great meal. This year, treat yourself with a high-quality deep fryer. There is a myriad of treats you can make with a deep fryer, most of which can be made in a matter of seconds with little cleanup. 

Deep-Fried Breakfast Foods

When most people think of deep-fried foods their mind almost immediately goes to french fries and onion rings, but did you know that you could make breakfast foods as well? Here are a few quick breakfast suggestions that can be made with your new deep fryer. 

Soft Boiled Eggs and Egg Yolks 

Soft boiled eggs are even more delicious when you deep fry them! Boil the eggs for about 5-6 minutes and peel them. Then simply coat the boiled egg in seasoned breadcrumbs and flour and drop the egg into the hot oil! Only fry for about 30 seconds for a deliciously runny, yummy breakfast treat. 

Deep-Fried Vegan Foods

The vegan diet is known for having many health benefits, both physical and mental. While we wouldn’t say that deep fried foods are the healthiest, we do encourage a little fun for the holiday. Don’t break your diet, deep fryers can make vegan food too. 

Mushrooms and Cauliflower

When seasoned properly with a little lemon garlic, salt, and pepper a bowl of deep-fried mushroom and cauliflower has been compared to savory calamari! This is a treat that everyone can enjoy. 

Deep-Fried Desserts 

The best part of every meal is dessert. Sure, you know about funnel cake and deep-fried Oreos, but we can get more inventive than that! Take a look at these deep-fried dessert ideas you can try. 

Ice Cream

Looking for an ice-cold treat? It takes just a few seconds to deep fry a scoop of your favorite ice cream! Cover your ice cream with flour and cinnamon and dip it into the boiling vegetable oil. This creates a unique treat that is warm on the outside and cool on the inside. 


Top your deep-fried ice cream with some deep-fried strawberries!
