Swedish meatball burgers (recipe in the comments)
Corn on the cob
Grilled zucchini and squash

Hot tea
This is an amazing an unusual burger recipe. We have done it successfully with beef and turkey and I'm certain a mix would work. The seasoning is subtle, but very *present*. These are best on potato rolls, but we also like them on onion rolls. Corn is an EXCELLENT side. The rest is pretty variable. We have had this with company and it is very well received :) It was a perfect last meal with my mom.

Prep Notes
Difficulty: Easy
Chopping: Onion, parsley, halving the squashes to grill
Time: 35 minutes
Make ahead: You can make the burger blend whenever and grill last minute.

J: "A whole new burger!"
M: "Swedish folk make GREAT food!"
