Whether you want to control your portions or simply want to be able to taste more things, mini versions of burgers and other things are great. Brian Wells, GFS Marketplace Food Expert (www.gfspartyplanning.com), came into our ABC7 studio to show us a few recipe ideas.
Old Glory Cake
12 x 15 ½ pre made GFS Sheet cake
1 quart blueberries
2 quarts raspberries
Assemble berries in flag design on top of sheet cake.
Use remaining berries to garnish around cake plate.
Red Fruit Punch or Cranberry Juice
To make the layered punch, use the juice with the highest fruit concentration first and the one with the lightest on top. Pour into individual glasses for a dramatic table setting, or make one big batch in a pitcher for a great visual.
Fourth of July Fruit and Yogurt Parfaits
1 pint strawberries sliced or 1 pint raspberries
1 pint blue berries
1 quart vanilla yogurt
In parfait or any type of dessert dish, layer ingredients in red white and blue design.
