Vegetable Grill Packets and Topping Bar. Next time you have people over, create the best vegetable packets on the grill and a topping bar so everyone can customize their packets.
Vegetable Grill Packets and Topping Bar
Looking for the perfect summer grill idea? Make vegetable grill packets! Sliced potatoes or cauliflower pieces in butter with spices are so good! Then make up a topping bar so your family and friends can add their favorites on top and you have an easy and fun dinner idea!
Low-Carb Cauliflower Packets
Make the packets low-carb by providing cauliflower pieces that people can use as a base instead of sliced potatoes. Instead of 26 grams of carbs in potatoes, there are only FIVE grams of carbs in the same serving of cauliflower. It’s a great low-carb dinner idea!
Sliced Potato Packets
Since I started eating low-carb and keto it’s been a struggle finding dinner ideas that my kids and I can both eat. This is a great dinner idea. My kids can use sliced potatoes as a base in their vegetable packets and I can use cauliflower pieces.

How Long to Grill Vegetable Packets
Set your grill to medium-high for these vegetable packets. Put the packets on the grill at medium high heat. Let the vegetable packets cook for 15 minutes, then flip them over for the remaining 15 minutes. The vegetables will be hot. So be careful opening the packets because the steam can burn your fingers.
