    I couldn't decide what to do with all the beetroot I had, so I tossed them onto the barbie

    I have made these for years. I use olive oil instead of butter.  -  12 Jul 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I wasn't sure how to cook beets on the grill, but the foil packet and timing was perfect. I actually had some fancy-schmancy blood-orange infused olive oil a friend had given me, so I sliced the beets in thin circles (and I also sliced a yam to go with it). I placed the beets in a Ziplock and drizzled some of that oil into it, and shook some coarse into it too -- shook it up, and then placed in a foil pouch for the grill. I did the same to the yam, but kept it separate, assuming it would need less time on the grill. The yam was done in 20, the beets in 30. Once off the grill, we combined them together on everyone's plate. To-die for!!  -  01 Jul 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This was a good menu addition for vegetables to grill while camping. I did add a bit of sugar to the packs so that it would really caramelize with the butter and add a bit more to the kid appeal factor. Everyone enjoyed them. Thank you for sharing this recipe.  -  21 Aug 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
