By now you know that Food Network Magazine’s July/August issue boasts an incredible burger section. And while the endless combinations of bun, toppings and meat blends can (and should) keep you occupied all summer long, there are plenty more all-American summer dishes to make for this BBQ season. The magazine staffers, for example, are beyond excited about the red, white and blue desserts for today’s 4th of July celebration. (The patriotic desserts taste just as delicious on July 5 and every day following, so don’t fret if they don’t make it to this year’s fireworks festivities.) Other highly anticipated recipes from the new issue include 50 things to make with zucchini, no-churn cheesecake ice cream and lobster rolls. Read on to find out what other recipes you should be making.
“We don’t always eat the food we photograph for the magazine — sometimes it’s been sitting out a little too long, or too many hands have primped and prodded it — but no one could resist Jeff Mauro’s lobster rolls (pictured above). As soon as they were shot, everyone on set dug right in. The recipe is super simple, but that’s how I like my lobster rolls: big chunks of lobster meat with just a little mayo and celery. And a butter-toasted bun, of course.”
