Grilled Veggies Print E-mail

These marinated vegetables are a great compliment to our Patriotic Patties. The take a little less time to cook so once you've browned the burgers on one side put the veggies on to cook.

{Makes 4-6 servings}

You'll need:

  • 1 ear of corn
  • 6 small potatoes - cut in half
  • 2 zucchini squash - cut in 1 inch chunks
  • 10 cherry tomatoes
  • 4 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar
  • 5 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon of fresh ground pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt
  • 2 tablespoons of oregano
  • A lot of adult help for the grill


  • Measuring spoons
  • A large bowl
  • A spoon
  • Oven mitts
  • A grill basket or aluminum foil
  • A pair of tongs

      1. Put all your veggies in the big bowl and pour in the rest of the ingredients. Set them aside for 30 minutes while you help prepared the rest of the meal.
      2. Ask your adult helper to fire up the grill if it isn't already going.
      3. if you're using aluminum foil make a double layered "tray" and pierce some holes in the bottom every few inches. Spray the grill basket or foil with cooking spray.
      4. Have the adult put the basket on the grill and arrange the veggies in it. Make sure the kernel side of the corn is facing down. Make sure Dad, Mom or whoever is helping you uses the oven mitts. Burns aren't just for kids, after all.
      5. The veggies will need to be turned after about 5 minutes. This will all depend on how hot the grill is.
      6. Continue to cook the veggies, turning them every so often until the zucchini starts to get a little soft and the corn and potatoes have browned edges.
      7. You can help by holding the serving plate as your adult helper takes the veggies off the grill. Take them to the table and dig in.
