Menu Plan Monday – May 19th

by Marcy on May 19, 2008 · 0 comments

This is my first week back in the saddle after taking 2 weeks off from menu planning. I must say that not having a plan for the past two weeks has been a bit disastrous for our waistlines and our wallets…We ate out more than I care to admit, so I’m hoping that we can get back on track this week.

Here is what I am planning on for our dinners:

* Grilled Bacon Burgers (recipe below) & Frozen Fries

* Baked Penne & Garlic Bread (I have some meat sauce in the freezer ready to go)

* BBQ Chicken Wraps

* Salsa-Chicken Quesadillas

* Steak on the Grill, Corn on the Cob & Salad (we have steak in the freezer)

* Grilled Chicken, Rice, Frozen Veggies

* Leftover or Pizza Night

Grilled Bacon Burgers from Taste of Home Simple & Delicious

1 egg
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
2 tablespoons chopped onion
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons ketchup
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 pound ground beef
5 bacon strips
5 hamburger buns, split Leaf lettuce, tomato slices and onion slices, optional
In a small bowl, combine the egg, cheese, onion, soy sauce, ketchup and pepper. Crumble beef over mixture and mix well. Shape into five patties. Wrap a bacon strip around each; secure with a toothpick. Grill patties, uncovered, over medium-hot heat for 5-6 minutes on each side or until meat is no longer pink. Discard toothpicks. Serve on buns with lettuce, tomato and onion if desired.
