Your grill doesn't want to sit lonely Monday through Friday just waiting for the weekend. Grilling on a weeknight can be fast and fun, plus it keeps you from heating up the house in these dog days of summer.

Here are 15 of our favorite weeknight grilling recipes — from quick veggie burgers to easy grilled chicken — for making the most of outdoor cooking before summer ends.

My Go-to Weeknight Menu

Chicken, broccoli, and peaches never go out of style in our house; these are the three recipes I reach for most when cooking for my family of four. Grill the peaches while the chicken rests and serve them as a side or save them for dessert and serve with ice cream.

The Quick Classics

Chicken breast, pork tenderloin, and a juicy satisfying burger are the basics that anyone can pull off on a weeknight. Pick up some frozen or prepared sides and dinner is done.

Crowd-Pleasers

You know the scenarios well: Two or three neighborhood kids invite themselves over or your Aunt Beatty is stopping by on her way to the Keys. Basically you have extra mouths to feed. These recipes all feed a crowd well and take advantage of the grill's extra surface area so you can cook more of them at once.
