Solomon Recipes

I started this blog so I could pass along family recipes to my children. Most of these recipes are Eaton recipes.

But, no need to share the last name Solomon. The majority of the recipes are made by me, Mother Goose, my Sister in law, Gretchen and two friends Leta and HK. If you would like to be a contributor, just holla!

Grilled Dinner

This is a recipe we use frequently during the summer months. It is quick, easy, and the best part - no cleanup!

Grilled Summer Veg with Kielbasa

Serves 4

1/4 red onion, sliced thin

~8 small red potatoes, quartered
Baby Carrots

2 ears corn, cut into fourths

one yellow squash, sliced in 1 inch pieces

one zuccini, sliced in 1 inch pieces

one lb kielbasa sausage sliced into 1/4 - 1/2 inch pieces

2 Tbls butter

Seasoned salt such as McCormicks Garlic and Pepper seasoning

Soak the potato and corn in water about 45 minutes before you plan to prepare this dish.

Pull out a layer of Heavy Duty Tin Foil large enough to fold over ingredients with several inches to spare. Place the corn, potaotes and sausage in the center of the foil. Tope with the onion, squash and zuccini. Dot with the butter and sprinkle with seasoned salt.

Fold the foil up from both sides and then fold the foil closed at least three folds to seal in moisture and steam. Form triangles of foil at each end and then fold in several times to seal.

Place the foil package on a hot grill, seam side up and cover grill. Let the vegetables cook about 20 minutes, depending on how hot the grill is. Then turn for an additional 10 minutes cooking time. (Cooking time depends a lot on your grill, so watch them close the first time and adjust as necessary.)

A few notes: It is important that your squash and zuccini be sliced large and placed on top of the other vegetables to prevent their overcooking. For larger groups you can make this dish in a disposable aluminum roaster pan and seal the top with foil. In this case I stir the vegetables about 20 minutes into cooking and then add the squash and zuccini to avoid overcooking.

I had to comment - my friend Michelle O (from your neck of the woods) visited me last week and introduced me to your blogs - I added them to my reader and I have to say your recipes are VERY COOL! Everything seems like an actual recipe I would make for my family - love that!
