Menu Plan for Summer II: Week 10, Wednesday

Burgers with Ginger Barbecue Sauce
Grilled Potatoes with White Balsamic Glaze
Sautéed Zucchini (Courgette) with Tomatoes and Onion

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

     We'll use the rest of the Ginger Barbecue Sauce with the burgers - either to baste or just as a sauce.  The Zucchini/Tomato makes quite a lot, so we'll finish the rest tomorrow night.

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 Potatoes with White Balsamic Glaze

Total time: 35 minutes
   A reduction of white Balsamic vinegar, sweetened with a bit of sugar, give these the hint of potato salad, but keeps the crispness from roasting. 

Grilled Potatoes White Balsamic Glaze Ingredients:

 Instructions:

Zucchini (Courgette) with Tomatoes and Onions

Total time: 35 minutes
      This is a traditional Mediterranean preparation and one of my favorites.  It's wonderful hot but good cold the next day if there are any leftovers.  You can add a drizzle of Balsamic vinegar and olive oil and have a cold salad.
