It’s begun already: Zucchini Season! This is the time of year when practically every recipe out of my kitchen must be adapted to include zucchini – in order to not become overwhelmed by the proliferating plant.
Thus this month’s Improv Challenge theme of Corn & Butter would just have to contain some zucchini. A salad of buttered corn and zucchini would have been delicious. (Please check the thumbnail photos below as I’ll bet some corn zucchini salads may pop up.) But my troops were really hungry the other night and I had a craving for tuna….and for a super simple dinner. This recipe emerged. All the kids liked them (with ketchup, of course) and most importantly, so did my mother who has proclaimed herself to be ‘not a tuna fan’ but I guess corn & butter (and zucchini?) makes everything taste better.
If you really want to get into the Corn & Butter theme, top these burgers with some melted butter before serving. What’s your favorite way to eat corn in the summer?
