We camp out often in summer and do a lot of cooking over charcoal. These veggies go great with any grilled meat. Sometimes I also thread brown-and-serve rolls on skewers, brush with melted butter and cook them over the coals for 10-15 minutes. They get all crusty on the outside, yet stay soft in the center. It rounds out a super meal.
Our young sons like to help me assemble potatoes, carrots and onions into foil packages that we can grill alongside the turkey. Just before serving, we top the steaming medley of vegetables with a sprinkling of cheese.

My mom used to 'dress up' peas with buttered cracker crumbs when I was little and it remains one of my favorite dishes. Just about any type of savory crackers can be substituted, including herb-flavored varieties. —Sue Gronholz, Beaver Dam, Wisconsin
Passed down for generations, this recipe was a cherished family tradition at holidays and special gatherings. Now, with less than half the fat, sodium and cholesterol of the original, it can be served up for generations to come!

This flavorful side from Tina Repak of Johnstown, Pennsylvania makes the most of those bountiful tomatoes and zucchinis. Melted Swiss cheese and sour cream lend a touch of decadence to this healthy and appealing dish.
