First up: Grilled Asparagus--it was only recently (like the last 3-4 years) that I've come to enjoy asparagus. I really enjoy it when it is prepared this way! (the skinnier the stalks--the better!)
1 lbs fresh Asparagus, trimmed
Herbs de Provence
Trim asparagus by holding both ends and bending until the natural snap occurs. Place trimmed asparagus on a prepared tin foil sheet or grill pan. Drizzle 1-2 Tbls olive oil over asparagus and toss to coat evenly. Sprinkle with seasonings. Place on preheated grill for 5-7 minutes, watching carefully not to overcook. Be certain to turn asparagus frequently to prevent charring. Serve warm.
Next, the famous grilled potatoes. I love this side--so easy, so tasty! I've been making these for years. Feel free to use your favorite spices to change this up!
1.5 pounds red potatoes (or your choice--about 4 med size reds), sliced
2 Tbls butter, divided
Dried Onion Flakes
Slice potatoes evenly (best done with vegetable slicer) and place on a prepared sheet of tin foil (sprayed with cooking spray). I use 2 sheets and divide potatoes evenly amoung the two sheets for quicker, more even cooking. Cube up butter and place on potatoes (I typically stuff the butter under a few slice of potato, too!). Sprinkle with your favorite spices or the ones listed above. Tightly wrap up the foil packet and place on a preheated grill for 15-20 minutes. Turn packet half-way through cooking time to prevent burning. Serve warm.
Yum! So, tell me, what are your favorite go-to grilling favorites?
