Kid Cuisine

The kidlets all love to help out when there is any cooking to be done and they especially love anything that involves layering. These are grilled scalloped potatoes - recipe from Stacey P (the other Stacey with an "-ey" in our ward).

First lay out foil in a cross shape and throw on some blobs of butter (REAL butter). Next slice up a big pile of potatoes and onions - you must use a mandolin for this because makes perfect, thin slices. If you do not own one, contact my friend Gail and she'll hook you up. I found my Pampered Chef version brand new at a yard sale this past summer. For some reason the lady had about 6 of them still in their boxes and she was not a distributor - odd.

Have the kids alternate layers of potatoes and onions. Sprinkle each layer with salt, pepper and garlic powder.

Watch out for those onions!

Mr. Calvin was in charge of the pepper grinder.

He was very enthusiastic.

Add a couple more blobs of butter to the top, wrap it up and toss on a med. grill for 30 minutes while you grill the rest of the meal. If you like, open the packet and sprinkle the top with cheddar cheese and let cook for another 5 minutes for melty cheesy goodness. Enjoy!

  1. Those potatoes are so good! And great idea to include the kids! We had a recipe swap a few months ago that was themed kid friendly and I used one of your cookie recipes where you had the kids flatten the cookies with cups. I love your ideas!
