Grilled Sweet Potato Wedges

Rated as 4.75 out of 5 Stars

"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."

  1. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat and lightly oil the grate.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.

Great recipe

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....

easy. great summer dish

Cooked in air fryer with small splash of olive oil. No salt needed and added turmeric. Used fresh crushed garlic instead of powder.

These are delicious! The spice mixture brushed on at the end is perfect. Amazing taste. A nice alternative to the baked sweet potato! Thanks France C.!
