We have been working at the KOA in Bar Harbor, Maine for the last month and with the summer season on top of us, and hours increasing, it is important that I find quick ways to fix meals! Since our main method of cooking is the grill, I’ve taken to doing some experimenting. This week, I put together an amazing meal using Suddenly Salad Pasta Salad, and Spicy Chipotle Burgers and Corn on the Cob cooked on the grill!
I have to tell you, it was awesome! I’d love to share the recipes with you and also to get in the spirit of summer fun, I want to also offer an exclusive $25 Gift Card giveaway for Sitcom Readers!
See the bottom of this post for the information on the giveaway!
So…want some great summer recipes?
Let’s start with the pasta salad. Did you know that Suddenly Salad is Grilling’s Perfect Partner? Talk about an easy side dish. You can find it at your local Publix store! Click here for a great Suddenly Salad Pasta Coupon!
The great thing about Suddenly Salad is that you can mix it up ahead of time, pop it in the fridge and it makes a complimentary side dish for anything you make on the grill! Folks will think you were slaving in the kitchen for hours.
Truth be known, all you have to do is boil the pasta for about 10 minutes, add the spice mix (included in the package), add a bit of olive oil and water- and there you go! Suddenly Salad Classic is our favorite and we love it just as it is, but if you want variety, there are lots of great stir-in ideas on the package!
Doesn’t it look wonderful? Let’s add a yummy Spicy Chipotle Burger and Corn on the Cob fresh from the grill!
- 1 lb. Ground Beef
- 1/2 Onion, chopped
- 1 Small can Chipotle Chili Peppers in Adobo (chopped)
- 1 tsp. Cumin
- 1 tsp. Salt
- 1/2 tsp. Pepper
- Sliced Jack Cheese
- Sliced Avocados
- Mix together the ground beef, chopped onion and chopped chipotle peppers
- Add in the cumin, salt and pepper and form into patties
- Cook on a grill for about 15 -20 minutes until done.
- Place on bun with a slice of Jack Cheese and sliced Avocados.
The Spicy Chipotle Burgers go well with the easy Suddenly Salad Pasta Salad, and for another easy meal addition, let’s look at grilled corn!
Simply remove the husk and silk from fresh corn, brush on olive oil, and sprinkle with garlic powder and salt. Then roll in aluminum foil and place on a hot grill.
Both the corn and the burgers only need to cook for about 15 – 20 minutes.
We ate this yummy meal this evening at the picnic table while watching the sun set over the park. Want to see the view?
Beautiful, isn’t it? There is nothing nicer than sitting down to a nice summer meal fresh off the grill and watching a beautiful sunset.
