I love grilling and one of my favorite ways to prepare vegetables on the grill is wrapped in foil. There is a smile on my face when I prepare this meal because no pots and pans are required for this recipe...easy clean up!
Fire up your grill we are about to get started!
How to prepare the potatoes and squash:
Serves 2 adults and 2 children
double the recipe if needed
2 large baking potatoes, washed and peeled (or not peeled)
(you can use any variety of potatoes, I like using red potatoes as well)
2 small yellow squash
1 small zucchini
2 tsp fresh chopped rosemary
1 tsp fresh chopped parsley
an additional 1 tsp of fresh rosemary and parsley for the squash
onion powder to taste or 1/2 onion sliced
garlic and herb seasoning to taste
kosher salt and fresh ground pepper to taste
about 3 TBS butter for each foil packet
First, lay foil on a large cookie sheet and evenly dice your potatoes. Then add herbs and seasoning. No need to measure ingredients, just evenly sprinkle and toss to coat. Last, top 1 TBS of butter in 3 different areas of the potatoes. Instead of using onion powder you can also slice 1/2 of an onion and toss it in with the potatoes.
Prepare the squash as you would the potatoes only cook the squash no longer than 10 minutes.
These wonderful grilled sides pair well with grilled fish, chicken, or steak.
