Grilled Vegetable Medley Packet's

Well everyone it's grilling time again at our house. Today is Steak and Bratwurst a perfect summer time meal. I guess anything prepared on the grill on a hot summer day is a perfect summer time meal, I am sure you wont argue with me on that. I needed a great side dish to go with our meat. I was lucky enough to find some vegetables on clearance at the grocery store. "Clearance Vegetables" you ask. I guess it t does sound kind of funny doesn't it. 

Our local grocery store has a section in the produce department where they bag up some of the fruits and veggies that need to be sold really quick, not because they are bad but because they are really ripe and need to be sold quickly. I found a mixed bag of everything I needed to make these wonderful Grilled Veggie Packets. The total cost of all the veggies $1.49. to cool.

That's really exciting for me I love finding a bargain. One day I was able to snag a bag of 20 California Cuties for $1.00 (California Cuties are a brand of clementines). That was a awesome find. So believe me I always stop and check out what i can find.

If your lucky enough to have a garden you might have some yellow squash, zucchini squash and carrots on hand so that would be perfect. This dish turned out so perfect and the flavor was wonderful, not to mention how easy it was to throw together. It would be a great side dish for grilled chicken or fish as well. I prepared half of the recipe listed below. My husband is not to fond of squash so i didn't want to make a to much. I just don't know whats wrong with him, he just doesn't know what's good. Ok on with the recipe.

Add all of the cut vegetables to a large bowl.



add olive oil, basil salt & pepper and toss to coat everything.



Place half of the vegetables on a double thickness of heavy-duty foil. (About 18 inches) Add the fresh rosemary sprigs



Fold foil around vegetables and seal tightly. Repeat with remaining vegetables and seal 2ND packet. I only did half a recipe so I just had one packet.


Grill, covered, over medium heat for 20-25 minutes or until potatoes are tender, turning once.


Viola!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Remove fresh rosemary and dig in.




I served ours with Steak and Brats and my Quick Crab Salad. Which is the simplist salad you can make.
