Sweet potatoes on the grill have a smoky, caramelized flavor you can't achieve in the oven. These are mildly spicy, but adjust the cayenne to suit your taste. These are excellent served with grilled pork or fish.

Instructions Checklist

  • Scrub sweet potatoes thoroughly under cold running water. Cut each potato lengthwise into 8 wedges. Place wedges in a bowl and toss with 2 tablespoons of oil. Combine remaining olive oil, paprika, salt, garlic powder, cinnamon, and cayenne in a separate small bowl.

  • Place wedges on the grill perpendicular to the grates and reduce heat to low. Grill over low heat, turning occasionally, until potatoes are soft, 16 to 18 minutes. Brush wedges with oil mixture on both sides, and grill 1 to 2 minutes more, then transfer to a plate.

Cook's Note:

Two medium-sized sweet potatoes are about 1 pound. There is no need to peel the sweet potatoes.

Sweet potato flavor comes thru nicely. As a side bonus once grilled, can place in warmed oven to keep temp up and get an extra crispy skin. Just don't over cook during boil. Better under, as grilling cooks them more, than over cooking and ruining the texture Read More

Loved the simplicity and flavor of these sweet potatoes. The measurements are perfect. It was dark outside already so I just baked the sweet potatoes in the oven while I was baking another dish. Will be making these again and on the grill as directed. Thank you for the recipe! Read More
