I’ve been working on the weekend menu and I really wanted to try something new. So, here is the menu for the weekend and I’ll add photos later tomorrow or Monday.

Hamburgers – I’m going to grill hamburgers and use a twist to my normal recipe. I’m going to saute onions in an Imperial Stout and then add them to the hamburger mix. And I’m going to add about a 1/4 of a cup of the same Imperial Stout to the hamburger mixture before making my patties.

BBQ Chicken – Even though tomorrow is going to be really cold, I need a little a time at the grill. I’m going to marinate some chicken breasts with my NC BBQ Sauce and throw those on the grill. The BBQ Sauce has a nice blend of sweet and heat.

Chicken Wings – We have some friends coming over and they have asked for wings, so wings we shall have. I’ll make a sweet and honey bbq wings and a medium heat. The medium heat is my favorite and it is just Frank’s Red Hot, butter and Worcestershire¬† sauce. And one little trick that I like to do, is boil my wings for 10 minutes and letting them dry before putting them on the grill.

Roasted Potatoes – I love potatoes with my wings and I wanted to do something different and I found this recipe on Serious Eats that looked great.

Roasted Vegetables – This is a standard recipe that I am making on a weekly basis. This is a simple blend of Sweet Potatoes, White Sweet Potatoes and chopped up onions. I coat these with a olive oil and roast for 40 minutes at 425.

Sausage and Egg muffins – So my wife made these last week and it was a combo of eggs, sausage and some bell peppers, which I do not like, baked in a muffin pan. Because I like to put my on twist on certain recipes, I’m going with changing out the bell peppers and adding bacon and diced sauteed onions.

Photos coming soon, but this should be a great weekend for cooking & when I update the post with photos, I’ll also add the pairings that I go with for beer.
