On the Grill Potato Packs

I have been a little AWOL....but I have been loving my break from blogging!

As I have mentioned before, my boys have been swimming....and 
swimming...and swimming!

It has, by far, been the most exciting summer of swimming!
They each made it as far as they could in their individual events, placing 9th and 11th!

While I have not felt like blogging, I have been doing a lot of summer cooking
on the grill.  It has just been TOO hot to turn on the oven!

Here's a quick and easy side dish that you can make on the grill....

This is one of the easiest side dishes to throw together and can be
made a variety of ways!

The first thing that I do is slice the potatoes and cook them for about 5 minutes 
in the microwave.  This decreases the cooking time on the grill and insures
sure that the potatoes are cooked through.

Here is what I put in my first packet:

I've also been know to throw in some mushrooms!

After assembling the packet, you can add pats of butter of the top
or I drizzled some olive oil over this version.

My kids don't like all the veggies, so I made a simpler version for them, leaving
out the "extra" veggies!

After you add and season your ingredients, just seal your packet and put it on the grill.  Cook it for about 10 minutes until it's steaming and smelling delicious!

You could make these on the grill or over a camp fire....it's one of my favorite summer sides!

My husband makes his taters in foil packs on the grill but he has never added parm cheese. I'm telling him next time I want that in mine.

Congrat's to the waternauts.

These look wonderful! I think I will make them for camping soon. Thank you!

Ha ha, that looks like what my son would want, potatoes only! Both ways look really good and I will definitely be doing this soon, too hot to turn on the oven is right!
