tips & techniques
Prepare the ingredients
1 Prepare the ingredients

Remove the honey from the refrigerator. Preheat your grill to maintain a temperature of 450-500°F. Carefully oil the grill grates. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut off any stem ends from the green beans. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. Halve the cabbage lengthwise; keep the core intact. Peel the onion; cut into 1-inch rounds. Cut off the stems of the bell peppers. Halve lengthwise; remove the ribs and seeds. Halve the baguettes. In a large bowl, whisk together the honey (kneading before opening), red wine vinegar, and as much of the red pepper flakes as you’d like. Halve the tomatoes; transfer to the bowl. Season with salt and pepper.

2 Assemble the foil packet & grill the potatoes

Place a large piece of foil on a work surface. Medium dice the potatoes; place on one side of the foil. Add 2 tablespoons of water. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt, pepper, and weeknight hero spice blend; toss to combine. Fold the foil in half over the potatoes. Fold the three open edges inwards to completely seal the packet. Grill 14 to 16 minutes, or until the water has cooked off and the potatoes are tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the grill and carefully open the foil packet. Transfer to a large bowl; add the spreadable butter. Season with salt and pepper; toss to combine.
