Grilled Vegetable Stuffed Bell Peppers - 52 Side Dishes from the Grill

This made for a very colorful platter of food.

I served this along side that Sexy Beer Can Chicken I blogged about a week ago.  It's always nice to have something with lots of colors along side something golden brown and delicious (which as good as that hrase sounds, it;s still brown food).

But even better than it looks, the stuffing is butter soaked vegetables, corn, zucchini, tomatoes and onions all held together with cheese and bread crumbs and herbs... In other words, a delicious combination of summer flavors, with wonderful accent flavors that bring out an ideal texture mix, flavor mix and still makes that beautiful colored presentation.

And BTW, add a pound of sausage to the mix and you would have a fantastic all in one Main Course/Meal

OK... Here's what I did...
