Menu Plan for the week of July 26, 2013:  Thursday's Recipes

Teriyaki Burgers
Grilled Spicy Sweet Potatoes
Sautéed Zucchini (Courgette) with Feta and Olives

Cooking time:  35 minutes for menu          Cooking schedule: see below for instructions

     Burgers and Fries - sort of. 

Grilled Teriyaki Burgers

Total time: 25 minutes 
   These could be made with ground turkey or chicken as well.  The addition of the onions, breadcrumbs, ketchup and Teriyaki keeps them moist and flavorful.  I normally make 3 patties and serve 1 1/2 each.



Grilled or Roasted Sweet Potatoes

Total time: 40 minutes
   These get a bit crusty on the outside and incredibly soft and creamy on the inside.  Yes, the skins are edible and good for you ;-))

Grilled or Roasted Sweet Potatoes Ingredients:


Sautéed Zucchini (Courgette) with Feta and Olives

Total time: 20 minutes 
    Use a smaller zucchini (courgette) for this dish, and a yellow or red pepper.  Add the feta and olives at the end so they only start to get warm.
