Summer Grilling

Posted on August 15th, 2011 by Dan

As a follow-up to the cliff hanger I left a few days ago, I have grilling stories to share. If you don’t know what I mean, we received our first ever grill last week and we’ve been antsy to use it.

So, last Friday we fired it up. In┬ápreparation, I bought some local corn from the farmer’s market and we harvested a few tomatoes from our garden. I figured there was no better way to celebrate summer grilling than corn on the cob and burgers. Black bean burgers to be exact. I used the recipe from Chex Cayanne.

We mixed them together quickly and topped them with fresh tomatoes, guacamole and some red onions. Unfortunately, I didn’t have time to bake buns, but I’ll make sure to for next time. They were very tasty and held up perfectly on the grill.

Just have to love summer sometimes.
