With the Fourth of July next week, here are a few crowd-pleasing recipes that will go perfectly with your hamburgers, hot dogs and fireworks.


Old Settlers Beans

1 lb hamburger meat
1 small chopped onion
Combine and brown in a skillet, drain any extra grease and place into a greased 9×13 dish.

Next mix the following in a large bowl:

¼ cup ketchup
¼ cup BBQ sauce
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup white sugar
1 tsp. yellow mustard
½ tsp. chili powder
2 tsp. molasses
1 can of large butter beans or white kidney beans, undrained
1 can of red kidney beans, undrained
1 can of pork and beans, undrained

Pour the bean mixture in the casserole dish with meat and onion, then stir to combine. Bake uncovered at 350 for 1 hour.


Ice Cream Sandwich Cake

11 – ice cream sandwiches (any flavor)
1 – 16 oz container Cool Whip
1 – 16 oz jar Hershey’s hot fudge ice cream topping
1 – cup chocolate chips, crushed Oreo cookies, M&M’s, festive sprinkles, or
crushed candy topping of your choice
Hershey’s chocolate syrup for garnish

Layer a 8 x8 in pan with foil. Make sure the foil lays over the sides of the
pan. This will make it easier to remove the ice cream cake from the pan when

Layer 5 1/2 ice cream sandwiches on the bottom of the pan. Spread a layer of
hot fudge topping on top of the ice cream sandwiches. Then spread half of the
cool whip on top of the fudge topping.

Repeat the same process with the second layer. Sprinkle chocolate chips, Oreos,
or candy of your choice on top. Loosely cover with plastic wrap and freeze for
about 3 hours.

Remove from freezer and remove the ice cream cake from the pan. Lift the cake peeling it off of the foil and place it onto a serving plate. Drizzle on some Hershey’s chocolate syrup just before serving.
