Your 4th of July Block Party with Omaha Steaks

American flag shirt – check.

Proud and loud red-white-and-blue socks and shorts – definitely.

Patriotic chef’s apron – oh, heck yes!

Who’s ready for a 4th of July block party? You-S-A!

Of course, U.S.A.-inspired attire is just one of the many ingredients that go into making a grand 4th of the July block party. You’ll need lots of chairs and tables, some fun decorations, a day’s worth of cool party music, perhaps some games, maybe a few fireworks. Cold beverages? Of course! Keep them iced in your reusable Omaha Steaks cooler.

And someone in the neighborhood association probably needs to clear all this with the city via a block party permit.

But really, those are just extras. All you really need for a successful 4th of July block party is a grill, Omaha Steaks and a group of hungry friends, family and neighbors. Luckily for you, we have a sprawling variety of All-American gourmet food specially priced to make this block party one that the neighborhood will be talking about for years.

Let’s get this party started

Just like a good fireworks display, you’ll want to start off with a few appetizers – the lighter, smaller fare to whet their appetites – before bringing out the big boom-booms for the grand finale.

Omaha Steaks has a variety of grilling appetizers that are custom-made for a 4th of July block party. Here are three of our favorites – a zip, boom, bang for your gathering:

  • The Zip: Buffalo Chicken Wings – The ultimate cookout appetizer, Omaha Steaks style. Everyone will get a kick out of these zippy hot and spicy sauced chicken wings. Meaty and ready to heat and serve, they’re great with fresh veggies and blue cheese dressing!
  • The Boom: Jumbo Bacon-Wrapped Scallops – Always a party favorite, these nuggets of gourmet bliss feature premium Jumbo Scallops wrapped in luscious bacon and glazed with maple sugar. Pop ‘em in your mouth – and boom goes the yum-yum!
  • The Bang: Tenderloin Kabobs – Bite-size chunks of our famous Filet Mignon with mushroom caps and green and red peppers all snugly lined on a metal skewer and ready for the grill. Place them on the grate and – bang! They’re done in 4 to 5 minutes!
