Grilled Sweet Potatoes

Yum
Grilled Sweet Potatoes


Here is another one where you don’t have to turn on the oven. It’s still grilling season so why not get all you can get out of it before the weather turns on us.

My daughter prepared these sweet potatoes and I grilled them for a great side dish for the evening. Apparently sweet potatoes are one of the healthiest foods that you can eat, Loaded with vitamin “A”. I’m not any kind of expert on the health benefits of sweet potatoes I just know that I do enjoy them.

What you need:

2 or 3 sweet potatoes
Olive oil
Cinnamon
Nutmeg
Sugar (optional)

How to do this:

  • Peel and slice the sweet potatoes ¼” or ½ thick
  • Brush both sides lightly with olive oil
  • Sprinkle cinnamon and nutmeg over one side
  • Sugar is optional; you can add some if you like. We did not use sugar

I set the grill on the medium setting, and grilled on each side for about 2 minutes. Then I moved them to the upper rack of the grill, closed the lid and cooked until the sweet potatoes were tender. I would say about 15 minutes.
