Here I go again, obsessing over the joy of fresh summer vegetables!
Seriously though, what could be better than this? Fresh vegetables, easy clean up, all cooked on the grill so you don’t heat up the kitchen. I know what’s even better! These baby reds and veggies are just plain deliciousness!!
What takes it over the top? Adding colorful corn, sweet onion and a generous amount of real buttah, baby!! It sends send this humble hobo from coach to first class!
So quick and easy! Keep it warm on the top rack while you grill your burgers or steaks.
I know you! You kitchen rebel, you. You’ve just got to play around and make dishes your own, sometimes even the first time you make it! I saw truffle butter at the store last week, right next to sweet corn. How does that sound?
I’ll admit Papa and I are pretty wimpy when it comes to spicy but we love lots of flavor and this fits our taste buds to a “t.” But do you like things hotter? You know your family. Why not add some red pepper flakes or go all out and toss in some sliced jalapenos?
Nothing beats the ease of clean-up like cooking in foil! Hooray! No dishes!
You an make up these packets in a jiffy and start them on the grill while you get your burgers pattied out or toss up a salad! (More veggies!!) Once they’re done or close to it, just move ’em up to the top rack to keep warm while you cook the meat!
High Class Hobo Potatoes
Buttered and seasoned baby red potatoes with vegetables. A complete side dish you make in a foil packet.
- 6 baby red potatoes, scrubbed and sliced about 1/4" thick
- 1 medium carrot, peeled and sliced about 1/4 " thick
- 2 ribs celery, trimmed and sliced about 1/4" thick
- 3 or 4 slices sweet onion, separate into rings
- 3/4 cup fresh or frozen corn
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder, or to taste
- 1/2 tsp seasoned salt, or to taste
- 1/2 tsp pepper, or to taste
- 1 Tbsp parsley
- 2-3 Tbsp butter, cut in pats
Cut 2 pieces of heavy duty aluminum foil about 12" x 14", spray one side of both pieces with non-stick spray.
Pile vegetables on foil, season and dot with butter. Spread out so they aren't piled too deep.
If you like, you can add fresh or dried herbs like rosemary, dill, or tarragon.
Fold in all four sides of foil making a tightly sealed packet
Cook on grill on medium heat, turning carefully once or twice with tongs or wide spatula to avoid tearing foil. Cook about 20-25 minutes or until easily pierced with tip of knife.
(Can also do these in the oven at 350 degrees for about 20-25 minutes, turning once.)
Remove carefully to plate and split open foil and serve right out of the packet.
Doesn’t this look awesome? It is!
