Review: Grilling isn't just for summer anymore. And if you're going to get the grill out, you may as well get full use of it. These frozen side dishes from Birds Eye are simple, as the name says. Just put the foil tray above the coals - beside whatever else you're grilling - and cook away. You can bake these veggies in the oven, too. But they really do seem to taste better on the grill. The Garden Herb flavor was a bit on the salty side. But the roasted corn in the Roasted Corn and Potatoes mix really came through. Cleanup is a cinch. Just dispose of the tray.
