Grilled Maple Dressed Sweet Potatoes

Sweet potatoes are so delicious and packed with nutrition. But, how do you cook and eat them in warmer weather? Grill them! Here’s a great recipe that mixes two flavors that are made for each other – maple and sweet potatoes. Even if you don’t like syrupy sweet sweet potato casseroles, you’ll like these. Give them a try.

  • 4 large sweet potatoes
  • 2 Tbsp cooking oil
  • 4 Tbsp butter, melted
  • 2 Tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 Tbsp brown sugar
  • salt and black pepper to taste

Oil the grill grate and preheat grill to medium-low.
Peel sweet potatoes and cut into thin slices lengthwise.
Place potatoes in a bowl and pour oil in and rub until well coated.
Arrange the potatoes on the grates in the center of the grill, away from direct flame.
Cover grill and cook sweet potatoes until good grill marks appear, then flip and continue cooking; total time about 12 to 15 minutes depending on thickness of potatoes.
Meanwhile, in a large bowl, whisk together the remaining ingredients.
When sweet potatoes are tender all the way through, remove to the bowl with maple syrup mixture and toss to coat well.
Add more salt and pepper to taste if desired and serve immediately.
Serves 4.
