Favorite Summer Side: Grilled Potato & Onion Packets

This is one of my all time favorite side dishes. Baby potatoes are tossed with red onions and a mustard oil for a delicious and fabulous side. I've made it countless times, it's my go-to side dish when I want something quick, easy and tasty. The red onions become sweet as they cook, and the thyme provides just the subtlest fragrance. It pairs perfectly with any meat and tastes great with beer can chicken or grilled fish too. You must give this recipe a try, so get it now, just
