Grilled Potato Medley with Bacon – A delicious medley of potatoes and summer vegetables topped with bacon and cheese. An easy summer side dish for grilling.
This recipe came about last week when I got a boatload of squash in our awesome deal of the week. Trying to figure out how to use in way that pleases the kids. What doesn’t please the kids? Yellow squash on a plate.
What does please the kids? Yellow squash on a plate surrounded by the great goodness of other vegetables topped with bacon and cheese. They gobbled it up good too. Woo-hoo. Mom for the win. 🙂
One of the reasons I love this dish is because it uses the grill. I love to grill outside. I love the flavor. I love being outside on the deck on summer nights. And I love finding new dishes that the whole family will enjoy that use the bounty of summer.
Aren’t these colors just gorgeous though? I love the pop of the orange and green and yellow.
I’m hoping your family will love this one too!
