The Yummy BBQ Season

posted in: Recipes, Vegetables | 0

BBQ season is wonderful.  There are so many foods to cook outdoors.  We look forward to bbq cooking all winter.  I know some people can bbq all year round but we only do it from spring to fall.  It just gets too cold and windy and snowy and it takes ages for the bbq to reach cooking temperature.

One of our favourites is to make foil packets … of potatoes, onions, mushroom, and veggies.

foil potatoes1

New potatoes that are scrubbed and sliced with a dollop of butter and then wrapped in foil come out crispy and delicious.

I’m sure you all measure like me … a dollop, a smidge, a pinch, a dab etc.  I don’t cook with salt or spices but you can always add seasonings to your taste.

foil beans1

A different way to cook fresh beans from the garden is to slice, add butter and wrap in foil.

foil onions1

Onions slices wrapped in foil give off a wonderful aroma while cooking and boy do they taste good.

foil mushrooms1

Mushrooms cooked the same way are very tasty.  Sometimes I wrap the onions and mushrooms in the same foil packet.  I’ve even added a few small tomatoes.

foil zucchini1

Zuchinni slices brushed with olive oil and laid on foil give them a different taste.  The slices are flipped a few times during cooking so that each side gets cooked.

At the same time you are cooking steak, pork chops, sausages, burgers, hot dogs or chicken (or whatever your choice of meat is) just add the foil packets along side, turn a few times and enjoy a delicious meal right from the bbq.  Be careful when opening the foil packets as they really get hot inside.  I usually pierce the foil to let the steam out before opening them up.

Serve and enjoy.

Do you have a favourite meal to cook on the bbq.
