Free 4th of July Disney Recipes

4th of July recipes
I can almost smell the BBQ as July 4th gets closer and closer. makes my mouth water for all the delicious food that will be served at my house. Of course I have to prepare it first.

This year I am doing something different and actually having a Disney theme with my 4th of July preparations. Earlier I posted several printables featuring our favorite Disney Characters (click here to see them), now I think it is important to share a few recipes that will make it worth while :D.
The recipes I have posted below are some of my favorites. Add a recipe tag next to the items on the table to Display the name of each recipe.

These recipes are free to use and enjoy!

SKGaleana’s Mickey Mouse Cucumber Sandwiches
The Mickey Mouse Cucumber sandwich is my personal recipe. I think that just a touch of garlic makes the cream cheese mixture stand out. The sandwich can be made by cutting the bread into the mickey shapes than assembling the ingredients or assemble the sandwich and cut out the shapes. With the cookie cutter it is easier to assemble and then cut. 🙂
Ingredients:
Directions

  • 1 loaf of sliced sourdough bread (or a bread of your choice)
  • 2 cucumbers, peeled and sliced into disks
  • 1 package of Cream cheese (8 oz), Softened
  • 1/2 cup of homemade Mayo
  • 1 tsp garlic
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 pinch pepper
  • Mickey Ears Cookie cutter or Mickey template
  • 1. Mix together Cream cheese, mayo, garlic, salt and pepper until well blended.
    2. Place a layer of the cream cheese mixture on a slice of bread.
    3. Place A layer of cucumbers on top.
    4. Place a slice of bread on top of the cucumbers.
    5. Using the cookie cutter or the template, cut out a few mickey mouse shapes

    Elsa’s Frozen Icecream
    This recipe was found on spoonful.com
    Ingredients:
    Directions

  • Ice cubes (enough to fill each gallon-size bag about half full)
  • 1 cup half and half
  • 1/2 cup salt (The bigger the granules, the better. Kosher or rock salt works best, but table salt is fine.)
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 pint-size ziplock bag
  • 1 gallon-size ziplock bag
  • Your favorite mixins such as chocolate chips, cereal pieces, or fresh fruit.
  • 1. Combine the sugar, half and half, and vanilla extract in the pint-size bag and seal it tightly.
    2. Place the salt and ice in the gallon-size bag, then place the sealed smaller bag inside as well. Seal the larger bag. Now shake the bags until the mixture hardens (about 5 minutes). Feel the small bag to determine when it’s done.
    3. Take the smaller bag out of the larger one, add mix-ins, and eat the ice cream right out of the bag. Easy cleanup too!
