 Meal Idea 

The red bell peppers in my dad’s potato side dish will add complementary color to your plate. This dish can be made in the oven or on the grill but will take up to an hour in the oven or 45 minutes on the grill. Instructions will follow the oven version; grill variation follows. You will need: four medium sized potatoes, washed, one yellow onion, one red bell pepper, salt to taste, pepper to taste, oregano to taste, and olive oil or butter. (Use butter if you plan on grilling.) Preheat oven to 350°. Lightly cover the bottom of a two-quart oven safe baking dish with olive oil or butter. Set aside. Peel and slice potatoes into bite-sized pieces. Slice onion and the red bell pepper into bite-sized pieces. Mix ingredients in the prepared baking dish and add salt, pepper and oregano to taste. Cover dish with lid or foil, and bake for 45-60 minutes. When prepairing this dish for the grill, place all ingredients on a large piece of foil that can be wrapped closed. Use four tablespoons of butter, not olive oil for this method. You will add the butter last, putting it on top of the other ingredients before wrapping. Cook package over direct heat for 30-45 minutes.
