Here is another great dinner idea for the summer. As soon as the warm air hits us, we are ready to grill. Burgers can have many different ingredients, so be creative. This is a simple and easy meal and most of the ingredient you already have.
For our burgers. We used ground beef, Lipton onion soup mix, Worcestershire sauce and garlic powder. Combine ingredients and form into patties. Place in the fridge until the grill is ready. You could make the patties the night before so that they were ready when you can home from work. Start the grill and you are ready. We use a meat thermometer when grilling to get the best results and make sure our meat is cooked to perfection. You can look up different temperatures for different foods online and cook to your taste preference. This weekend we also made it to our downtown Farmers’ Market where we picked up a piece of smoked Gouda cheese. This was a delicious addition to our burgers!
We love sweet potato fries. I have made them from scratch before but this time I had a frozen pack ready to go.
Here is an easy tip to get your fries really crispy. Place a cooling rack on top of a cookie sheet and then place the fries on top. This allows the heat to go all the way around the fry making it crispier. We also turned the broiler on for about 30 seconds before we take them out of the oven. Sprinkle with sea salt and parsley for a tasty side dish!!!
Lastly, we paired our meal with cottage cheese. This is easy to have on hand and it is a great source of protein. Our 1-year old loved this meal and I am sure it will be a summer favorite.
