Salty, sweet and a little smokey make grilled sweet potatoes a great accompaniment for burgers and franks at any barbeque. You will want to make extra as they will go fast.  They are a great alternative to French fries or potato chips.  Also, by adding the oil to the potatoes and shaking them up in a bag, you end up using much less oil than if you brushed the oil on each one. It’s much quicker and easier too.  You can use a store bought seasoned salt or try our recipe to make your own.

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cooking Time: 6-8 minutes
Servings 4-8


4 sweet potatoes, scrubbed clean.
1 TBL olive oil
2 TBL seasoned salt*


1. Slice each potato in half lengthwise. Slice each half into 4 to 6 wedges lengthwise depending on the size of the potato.

2.  Place potato wedges in a large resealable plastic bag. Add the oil. Seal the bag and shake/knead the bag to coat all the potatoes.  Sprinkle 1TBL of the seasoned salt over the potatoes and shake/knead the bag again to evenly distribute the seasoning.

3.  Heat your grill to medium-high heat. Place the potatoes on the grill. Sprinkle with a little more seasoned salt.

4.  Cook for 4 minutes, or until starting to brown.

5.  Flip the potatoes and sprinkle with more of the seasoned salt.  Cook for another 3-4 minutes.

6. Remove from heat and serve warm.
