The August long weekend passed and instead of camping and BBQing like I often do, I was enjoying BlogHer 2011 in San Diego. Kid Free! So no long weekend BBQ post for me.
That hasn’t stopped the BBQ fun since I’ve been home though. We have homemade burgers at least once a week on the grill will Wonder+ Simply Free buns. SimplyFree is the first Canadian National Brand of bakery products FREE OF artificial preservatives, flavours and colours; it is also free of high fructose corn syrup and made with unbleached wheat flour.
One of my favourites sides to accompany burgers is this super easy potato, carrot and onion dish cooked on the BBQ.
Grilled Potatoes, Carrots and Onions
Slice 6 medium potatoes (any sort / peeled or unpeeled you choose), 3 large carrots and 1 large onion (any sort). Put them all in a large foil pan and mix together. Drizzle with olive oil (about 1/4 cup) and dot with dabs of butter. Salt and pepper to taste. Cover with foil and set on the top or middle shelf of your BBQ and cook for about 45 minutes.
I usually light my BBQ and put these right on. I schedule meat grilling to begin about 30 minutes later. Without fail, when the meat is done … so are the veggies. Just like magic :)

Warning: Several potatoes, onions and carrots were chopped and sliced during the making of this post!
