Grilled Sweet Potatoes #BBQWeek


This week, Ellen of Family Around the Table and Christie of A Kitchen Hoor's Adventures have us sharing recipes for the grill. This is one of my favorite blogging weeks of the year! I love prepping food and handing it off to Jake to grill for me.




Grilled Sweet Potatoes Recipe

So, I already mentioned that I had off the prepped food to my husband. I actually did all of my week's recipes on Mothers' Day; I figured that was perfect because he was doing all the work...and I could relax while he grilled. The downside: I was inside reading a book and neglected to get process photos. "Did you take any photos?" I asked when I came outside.

Ummm...no. Why would I?

"Because these are for a post," I almost wailed.

Nope.

Ugh. So sorry, folks. No process photos of the grilling part.

Ingredients
  • 4 to 5 organic sweet potatoes, roasted until just fork tender
  • freshly ground sea salt
  • freshly ground pepper
  • 1 T olive oil
  • 1 t sesame oil
  • 1 t sweet chili sauce

Procedure
Whisk together the olive oil, sesame oil, and sweet chili sauce. Set aside.

Slice the roasted sweet potatoes in half, lengthwise and brush with the sauce. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Grill the sweet potatoes: Once the grill is hot, lay the sweet potato pieces, cut side-down. onto the grill grates. Cover the grill and cook until each side gets some grill marks, approximately 4 to 5 minutes per side.

Serve hot.

  1. I love grilled sweet potatoes. I usually cut them into planks so I get lots of caramelized goodness and they cook faster. Not having photos is a small price to pay for having Jake make the entire weeks worth of recipes!!
