Veggies and linking up to URS

Most of you probably already know that I'm not a huge veggie fan but I still push forward and keep trying, hoping that one day, I will see the flavorful-ness of broccoli, cauliflower, green beans, cooked spinach, and so on ... but it still hasn't happened as of yesterday.

So I continue to make tried and true things that I do like, such as veggie salads of all types and a few other things. Here are two potato based sides:

Italian Taters (EASY!)

Red potatoes (or any type really), cut in to LARGE pieces (don't cut smaller than a large bite size!)
Bottle of italian dressing (any brand works!)

Parboil the potatoes until a slightly soft. They need to be cooked but not too much so.
Drain and allow to cool for about 30 minutes. Dump the potatoes in a large bowl and pour the dressing all over the them. Cover and refrigerate for 2 to 4 hours (longer is fine).
Fire up the grill and place the babies on the grill and cook til a little charred, turn over periodically to keep from burning too much :) These are a great crowd pleaser.

and then we have:

Potatoes and Onions (any more descriptive and I might keel over!)

3 cups of thin sliced potatoes (I used one Coscto size spud, and last time, had to use the food processor since Hubby made me toss the OLD mandolin)
1 cup of thin sliced onions (again, Costco sized sweet onion, sliced as thin as possible
1/4 cup mayo
1/2 cup sour cream
1/4 cup of Parmesan (have not tried with the green can stuff yet)
1 cup mozzarella cheese (shredded)
1 tsp parsley (dry)
salt and pepper
dash of Cayenne pepper flakes
clove of garlic, finely minced

Mix the mayo/sour cream, cheese and spices together in large bowl. Dump in the onions and taters, mix well till all coated.
Tear 2 sheets of foil to about 15-20 inches long. Spray with Pam (well) and divide taters between 2 sheets. Fold up and seal well (you know, fold over and over and repeat)
Grill on medium high heat, turning over half way through for about 20 minutes til taters are done. They smell awesome and you will hear them sizzling!
When done, allow to sit a few minutes and very carefully, open foil up and serve. Yummmmm
