Jodie’s Taters

I know she’d kill me for using her childhood nickname here, but, I think it has a kind of “ring” to it, don’t you???
    Quantities will vary according to how many you’re planning on feeding and the only change I would suggest is that if you find you have more than four or five people, you may want to divide the vegetables in half and make two packets instead of just one.

    For each person, peel and slice into ¼” slices, 2 medium potatoes, 1 medium carrot, half a red pepper and half a small red onion. To the final mixture add 2 – 4 shallots thinly sliced and 4 – 6 cloves of garlic minced. Season generously with salt and freshly ground pepper, a dash of cayenne pepper and some fresh thyme sprigs. Coat generously with olive oil and combine to make sure everything is well coated.

    Take a double thickness of heavy duty foil and securely wrap the vegetables in it, taking care to make a package that has a uniform thickness and isn’t more than about three inches thick. Cook on a hot bbq for about 45 minutes, turning a couple of times to avoid burning. Once they’re done they can keep warm on the warming rack of your bbq while you grill your meat.
