Spring is finally in the air! The weather has finally started to match the season here in Montana. This means I’ve been cooking and serving up lighter recipes and dishes for the family. This is the second green vegetable recipe I have gotten my oldest daughter to enjoy eating. I had to trick her and tell her it tastes like broccoli, but it paid off because she loved it! This lemon garlic asparagus recipe pairs perfect with my Honey Garlic Salmon. To complete the meal make a pot of rice or light whipped mashed potatoes. I promise you will love it!Read More
Riley loves fruits and vegetables. If you’re wondering “who is Riley?” the answer to your question is, my unborn very picky child. I am currently eight months pregnant and have plenty of vegetable cravings. Especially this delicious honey lemon green beans recipe I created on Valentine’s Day. I made a surf n’ turf type Valentine’s Day meal that called for a vegetable side dish of some sort. I bought green beans at the store earlier that day so I decided to “wing it” and throw some flavors together that complimented the dish. It was delicious and I’ve made this recipe multiple times since then simply because of how much I loved it.Read More
Summer is coming to a close, but I had to share a recently discovered, grilled favorite in the Jamieson household. I have read multiple articles suggesting summer grilled pouch recipes on Pinterest, but none of the ingredients really caught my attention. We decided to grill a few weekends ago, and I decided to attempt my own concoction of ingredients in a foil packet to throw on the grill with the chicken. Well, considering I’m sharing the recipe, and it’s now a favorite in our home, it’s pretty safe to say the concoction was a hit! Here are the step by step instructions to make your own yummy grilled potato-veggie pouches.
Prep time: 10 mins | Cook time: 30 mins | Serves: 5
15 Baby Red Potatoes
1 large Red Onion
1 Green Bell Pepper
1 Red Bell Pepper
1 Orange Bell Pepper
1/4 cup Olive Oil
5 (individual) Tbsp Butter
Salt, Pepper, & Garlic powder
Heavy Duty Foil
Wash your bell peppers and potatoes. Cut your baby potatoes into halves, and your bell peppers and onion into slightly larger than quarter sized pieces.
Place all of your cut up potatoes and vegetables into a large enough container (with a lid), drizzle your olive oil and seasonings over the potatoes and vegetables in the container. Cover the container with the lid, and shake everything together to coat the potatoes and veggies in the olive oil and seasonings.
Tear off five decently sized pieces of foil and lay them on the counter. Evenly spoon the potato and veggie mixture in the middle of each piece of foil. Cut 1 tablespoon of butter in half, and place both pieces into separate parts of the potato veggie pouches. Repeat this for the remaining 4 pouches.
With your potatoes and vegetables in the center of the foil, close the foil by bringing the ends up to meet and crunch them together. Here is a picture of my lovely husband demonstrating what the pouches should look like when they’re closed and ready for the grill.
Put the pouches on the grill for about half an hour (or until desired tenderness). Once they are finished, leave them closed for another 3-5 minutes to finish cooking in the foil/cool down a little. We like to serve our pouches with shredded mild cheddar cheese melted on top.
Enjoy your yummy grilled potato-veggie pouches!
