As people across the USA celebrate Independence Day today, we take a look at some of the best cuisine from across the pond to help you cook up some tasty American dishes.

1. BBQ Ribs

Barbecue is one of the biggest influences on American cuisine, and BBQ ribs are one of the most popular American meals.

Originating in the deep south, pork ribs covered in a sweet and sticky sauce make for a messy but delicious combination.

Try this BBC Good Food recipe for the Stickiest-ever BBQ ribs with chive dip.

2. Burger

An American classic, the burger can lend itself to all meats and various accompaniments - just see these 35 ideas from food.com or make your own All-American Bacon Cheeseburgers.

3. Pancakes

Start the day USA-style with a big stack of pancakes. Use this Jame Oliver recipe and top liberally with whatever takes your fancy - indulge with maple syrup, bacon or both. 

4. Corn dogs

The corn dog is one of the most quintessentially American snacks you will find.

Often enjoyed while watching basketball, another American favourite, this tasty take on the hot dog even has a national day named in its honour in the US.

Take a look at this recipe from the Food Network to give corn dogs a go.

5. S’mores

If you fancy something sweet, s’mores are sure to hit the spot.

S'mores are melted marshmallows mixed with chocolate, traditionally sandwiched within Graham crackers.

Try following this recipe to make them with malted biscuits instead of the American crackers, or seek more inspiration with this list of 24 s'mores recipes.
