Roast Vegetables On A Grill

Thanksgiving Dinner; How To Grill Vegetables

It was bound to happen, I got kicked off the adult’s table and plan to enjoy this Thanksgiving at the kid’s table.  They challenged me to create some fun new items and I think my Traeger grill, and I did a solid job.

Watch what happens when we ask kids what they want at their table! I’m so glad they asked for veggies! Adding that wood-fired flavor to a delicious collection of vegetables is the perfect healthy side dish for your family feast. Let’s see what the kids think.
