Carol’s Grilled Sweet Potatoes

Have you ever had one of those days where you don’t feel like leaving the house, but your pantry is empty?! That’s what happened the day I figured out this recipe lol! I was out of everything, including olive oil, but I had 3 giant sweet potatoes sitting in my fridge. I felt like I was on the show Chopped, and I had weird basket ingredients to try to make something out of for dinner.

My husband was going to grill hotdogs (yep, our pantry and freezer were that empty), so I decided to get creative and try something fun with these giant potatoes! Wow, was this a winner, and is definitely one of our new favorite recipes now. We’ve made it so many times in the last few weeks.

So let’s get grilling together!


  • Sweet Potatoes
  • Vegetable or Olive Oil
  • 1/2 Sick of Butter
  • 1 Tsp Cinnamon

How to Make:

  • Take a knife and chop off both ends of the sweet potato. Use the knife to chop off the peel. I find this easier that using a potato peeler, since the skin on sweet potatoes is so thick!
  • Cut lengthwise, not in rounds, to create 1/4 to 1/2 inch sweet potato steaks.

  • Brush each side of potatoes with olive oil or vegetable oil…this will help it not stick to the grill.

  • Throw it on your hot grill and cook until both sides are charred and they are tender.
  • Melt butter in the microwave. Mix in your cinnamon (or pumpkin pie spice) using a fork to the melted butter.

  • Serve and Enjoy! 🙂

Tyler is already planning to make this Quick Family Recipe tonight. We’re hoping your family loves making this one just as much! Share your pics on the Z88.3 Mornings Page.
