Spicy Grilled Sweet Potatoes


3 teaspoons salt

2 large sweet potatoes

2 Tablespoons olive oil

3 Tablespoons brown sugar

1 teaspoon cayenne pepper (or as desired)

1 & 1/2 teaspoons black pepper

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon ground cloves


Preheat your gill to medium high heat. While it’s heating up, make sure to oil the grates

Add the sweet potatoes to a pot of cold water. Add half your salt, stir, and bring to a boil. Lower the heat and let simmer approximately 25-30 minutes, or until they are nice and soft.

Meanwhile, combine the sugar, cayenne pepper, black pepper cinnamon, and cloves together in a small bowl; set aside.

Transfer the sweet potatoes to a bowl of cold water. Once cool, drain.

Cut the potatoes lengthwise into wedges, about 8 per potato.

Coat the potatoes with your olive oil by turning them over in a large bowl with the oil added. Add the sugar, spice, and everything nice (the bowl of ingredients), and coat evenly.

Cook the wedges on your preheated grill for 3 to 4 minutes per side.
