This Cheesy Grilled Peppers and Potatoes Recipe is the perfect summer side dish. A simple foil pack recipe that is great for grilling season and camping cooking.
Grilling season is here! I have to admit I am always relieved when the grill comes out from hibernation. So many great, easy and tasty ways to answer the dinner dilemma. And here is one that is always a crowd-pleaser (and so easy). The hardest part is cutting the potatoes and veggies. I sometimes use a mandoline slicer to help speed up that process too. Check out our fave grilling side dish!
Be sure to spray the foil with cooking spray (or butter it) so that the veggies don’t stick to the foil. The potatoes are what take the longest to cook/get tender, so be sure to put those on the bottom (stack first in the foil). Seasoning is simple- pepper and salt, but sometimes I add garlic powder too. And finally, you can use any of your favorite cheese varieties, out fave is sharp cheddar.
