Grilled Yams


My husband never liked yams until I served yams cooked on the grill. The yams create their own glaze while they cook. You can add more herbs and spices to suit your tastes.

  1. Preheat the grill to high heat and lightly oil the grate.

  3. Arrange yam slices on the grate crosswise, so they don't fall through. Cook until tender and glazed, 10 to 12 minutes per side. Serve with butter.
