I have made these for years. I use olive oil instead of butter.

Beets on the Grill Haiku: "Very new for me, to eat beets not 'from a can', I'd do this again!" My beets were monstrously huge, so I used two, and cut them into quarters so they would be done in 30 min., alongside the chicken that I was already grilling. Flipped the foil-wrapped beets a few times to ensure even cooking. I loved them, daughter liked, husband hated, baby somewhere in b/t, but I think alot of it is just vegetable preference; beets are just beet-y, no matter how you prepare them, but I found this way to be fun, easy, and efficient enough, since I was already running the grill.

I wasn't sure how to cook beets on the grill, but the foil packet and timing was perfect. I actually had some fancy-schmancy blood-orange infused olive oil a friend had given me, so I sliced the beets in thin circles (and I also sliced a yam to go with it). I placed the beets in a Ziplock and drizzled some of that oil into it, and shook some coarse into it too -- shook it up, and then placed in a foil pouch for the grill. I did the same to the yam, but kept it separate, assuming it would need less time on the grill. The yam was done in 20, the beets in 30. Once off the grill, we combined them together on everyone's plate. To-die for!!

This was a good menu addition for vegetables to grill while camping. I did add a bit of sugar to the packs so that it would really caramelize with the butter and add a bit more to the kid appeal factor. Everyone enjoyed them. Thank you for sharing this recipe.

If you like beets, this is a great recipe! Very easy to do, with great results. My husband (a big beet fan) raved. We followed the recipe, just w/ less beets, since we only had 3. I was skeptical about not needing to peel them, but went ahead & just scrubbed 'em well - and there really was no need to peel them. Yum. Thanks!

I do this, altho I use olive oil and throw in some fresh dill...the intensity of the beet flavor is amazing when roasted.

A nice, easy way to cook beets. Just watch the heat because the can burn easily.

I've made these twice. The only thing I do differently is peel the beets. These really are outstanding, and neither my husband nor I are big beet fans otherwise.
