It is summer, the season of the grill. And grilling is great for preparing main dishes. But what about side dishes?
Before you reach for the standard coleslaw or potato salad, try these packets from my great-aunt Gladys that cook right on the grill:
- 4 potatoes, washed and thinly sliced
- 1 onion, peeled and thinly sliced
- 2 tablespoon butter or margarine
- salt and pepper to taste
- aluminum foil
- olive oil in a pump sprayer (or cooking spray)
Spray the aluminum foil with olive oil to prevent sticking. Layer 1/4 of the potatoes, 1/4 of the onion, 1/4 of the butter on a sheet of aluminum foil. Repeat. Add salt and pepper, then seal up packet of potatoes. Repeat for the rest of the ingredients. Grill over the not-so-hot part of the heat until potatoes are soft.
