"I don't really like the traditional sweet potato casserole, but my son loves sweet potatoes, so I try to come up with different ways to cook them. This spring I tried grilling them. These are now a favorite of mine and my sons."

  1. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat, and lightly oil the grate.
  2. Divide the sweet potato cubes in half, and place each half in the center of a rectangle of aluminum foil. Top each portion with about half of the butter. Sprinkle about half of the brown sugar, cumin, and cayenne pepper over each portion. Season with salt and pepper. Fold the corners of the aluminum foil together and seal to form a pouch around each portion.
  3. Cook on the preheated grill, turning pouches every 10 minutes, until the potatoes are tender and cooked through, 20 to 30 minutes.

Excellent! I partially microwaved the potatoes first to cut down on cooking time. I put these into a foil pan sprayed with a bit of Pam to prevent sticking vs. foil packets. I love the sweet and...

Great flavors! I also didn't have room on my grill so I put the potatoes in a single layer in a casserole dish, sprinkles the sugar and spices over them and dotted with butter. I baked it at 375...

These were great! If you have younger kids you may want to leave out the cayenne & substitute with cinnamon. My 4 year old was fine but they were a little too spicy for my 2 year old.

Wow! These sweet potatoes are AMAZING!! My kids loved this recipe - they said it tastes like pumpkin pie! I made a few tiny changes: I peeled and cut the sweet potatoes, put them in a bowl, tos...

This turned out pretty well. I slightly changed this recipe. I peeled, then cubed the potatoes, then boiled them for appx 10 minutes, to cut back on cook time. Then I seasoned and placed in f...

These were pretty good, but I will make some changes in the future. The cumin flavor was a little overwhelming, so I will probably halve it next time, and maybe add a bit more brown sugar. I al...

Like the submitter, I don't care for sweet potatoes... at least that's what I thought! This was a family hit. I melted the butter and other ingredients in a bowl and tossed the diced potatoes ...

Did not have enough room on the grill, roasted in the oven!

I did one large packet with cayenne, and a smaller packet with cinnamon for my 3yo. Both were delicious. I left them on for 30 minutes, but I think 20 would have been better. They were a little ...
