Summertime is burger time. If you don’t have any special plans this weekend, why not roll out the grill and flip some burgers? Backyard or beach, gather friends and family together, I can’t think of anything better with this beautiful weather. Here are a few suggestions …
Keep the appetizers easy with chips or veggies and dips. The first corn is at the farmstand. It’s not NH native but it’s still pretty good. Toss a few charred kernels into my Grilled Corn, Black Bean & Avocado Salsa and dig in. Alternatively, you might enjoy fresh veggies and chips with Baba Ganoush.
For the main course … bring on the burgers. Beef eaters will love my Not Your Ordinary Burger with goat cheese and sundried tomato aioli. If you like a little spice with your burger, add a slice of cheddar and a dollop of my Roasted Tomato-Chipotle Ketchup. If you prefer a delicious turkey burger then give my Turkey Burgers with Goat Cheese & Rosemary-Tapenade Aioli or Southwest Turkey Burgers with Cheddar & Chipotle Aioli or my Turkey Burgers with Greek Salsa.
Don’t forget the salads. To stay with the grilling theme, treat yourself and your friends to my Grilled Romaine Salad or Grilled Zucchini Salad. You might also like to add a platter of Heirloom Tomatoes with Balsamic Reduction. It wouldn’t be a summer cookout without potato salad. Try my Grilled Potato Salad or Dijon Potato Salad.
Have a wonderful weekend. Bon appétit!
p.s. It’s too late for this weekend but don’t forget to put up some pickles. If you mix up a batch of my Spicy Refrigerator Pickles this weekend, they’ll be ready for your next cookout.
p.p.s. It’s too early for local green beans in New Hampshire but they’ll be here soon. Be sure to put up a few jars of my favorite Dilly Beans.
