Independence Day never tasted so good! Check out some of our favorite recipes that are perfect for your backyard bash.

No. 1: Daym Drops' Single Patty Burger

Rachael Ray Show

Rach created this meaty burger for her good friend, Daym Drops. If he thinks it's delicious, you'll be sure to love it too!

No. 2: Spicy Turkey Burgers with Barbecued Onions

Turkey burgers often get a bad rap for being too dry since they have to be fully cooked through. To combat this, Rachael grates an onion right into the ground turkey mixture to help keep the meat moist.

No. 3: Maria Menounos' Portobello Mushroom Burger with Melted Gruyère on a Multigrain Bun

Like we said, there's a little something for everyone. But don't let this meat-free creation fool you -- it's one hearty burger!

No. 4: Michael Symon’s Fried Potatoes With Pulled Pork and Cleveland-Style BBQ Sauce

A barbecue doesn't always have to involve a grill. Give your backyard smoker a little love (if you don't have a smoker, just roast it in the oven) and make this flavorful pulled pork recipe. Pile it high on toasted rolls, baked potatoes, or you can even eat it straight up. The options for your guests are endless!

No. 5: Guy Fieri's Zing Zang Flank Steak

This steak is SO good, there's even a surprise stuffing in the middle.  It's filled with sautéed onions, peppers and aeromatic seasonings. Make the stuffing the night before so you can just stuff and grill the day-of.

No. 6: Detroit Coney Dogs

These delicious hot dogs are topped off with a quick-to-make and flavorful chili. Finish it off with some finely chopped onions and bit of mustard.

No. 7: Katie Lee’s West Virginia-Style Hot Dogs

Katie Lee gives traditional hot dogs a southern twist by topping them off with homemade chili and your favorite coleslaw.

No. 8: Grilled Guacamole

Guacamole on the grill? Oh, yes we did! Try this creamy, smoky dip at your backyard bash!

No. 9: Tina Wu's Buffalo Bacon Corn

Ditch the boring corn on the cob this holiday by giving it a little kick -- with some bacon and buffalo sauce!

No. 10: Hudson’s Favorite Potato Salad

You can't have a barbecue without this classic staple, right?

No. 11: Sunny Anderson’s Fresh Watermelon Kicker
