Grilled Sweet Potatoes

It doesn't take a lot to make delicious sweet potatoes. These grilled sweet potato slices get a quick blanch in hot water and then hit the grill to cook up hot and fast. Best part is that most of the preparation can be done in advance.



  • 4 medium sweet potatoes
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon


Cut sweet potatoes into 3/4 inch slices. Bring 3 quarts of water to a boil and add potatoes. Boil until potatoes are just starting to soften. Cool and peal. Combine butter, brown sugar and cinnamon, brush over potatoes. Place Potato slices on preheated grill over a medium low heat and cook for about 10 to 15 minutes, turning once. When the sweet potatoes are soft through the middle and browned on the surface they are ready.
