Here is a memorable meal for July 4th.  It's easy and fun!  It's also cherry season!  So, I included Black Forest Cake for dessert.  Hope you have a wonderful July 4th celebration.

HAMBURGER AND FRIES.  Make your hamburgers on the barbecue, if you like.  Make a huge salad to go with it as well. Visit the salads on my blog over here. Fries - no problem.  I guarantee no one will miss them when you make potato skins!  Cook and mash the rest of the potatoes for another meal for those who can have potato or take it over to family or friends who would appreciate it. The Sesame Hamburger Buns (improved version) are in volume 2 of Low-Carbing Among Friends as well. Find them over here.  Also, if you balk at using block cream cheese in the buns because of the price of block cream cheese, I made these the day before yesterday with spreadable cream cheese (from a bigger tub than those little containers) and used the gelatin version of my Gluten-Free Bake Mix.  Worked wonderfully, except that the buns were not quite as high, but the taste was fabulous and the bottoms were crispy when they came out of the oven.  So much nicer than those insipid white flour buns you can buy at the stores or find in restaurants.

Improved Hamburger Artisan Buns using regular cream cheese and Gluten-Free Bake Mix with xanthan gum in the mix.

Improved Hamburger Buns (cheaper version - still very tasty!) made with spreadable cream cheese and Gluten-Free Bake Mix (using gelatin) 

BLACK FOREST CAKE - Yum!  This recipe is in volume 2 of Low-Carbing Among Friends or over AT THIS LINK.
