“My husband never liked yams until I served them to him this way. The yams create their own glaze on the grill. You can add more herbs and spices to suit your own taste.”

Original recipe yields 4 servings



  1. Preheat a grill for high heat. When the grill is hot, lightly oil the grate. Coat the strips of yam with olive oil cooking spray and season with salt.
  2. Arrange the yam strips on the grate crosswise so they don't fall through. Cook for 10 to 12 minutes per side, until tender and glazed. Serve with butter.

I just tried this a few weeks ago for the first time. Very good and very easy. I didn't peel the yams, scrubbed them good instead. I drizzeled with olive oil and then the salt and pepper.



Loved them! I too put the sweet potatoes in the microwave for just 4 minutes to start the cooking process, then put them on the grill. Brushed with butter, then added a little Splenda brown sugar on top at the end to carmelize. Yum!!



We're trying to be heart healthy, so instead of the salt, I added Garlic Powder, Paprika, Cayenne Pepper, and Chili Pepper to try to zest them up a bit. We skipped the butter. Tasted delicious (even without the butter and salt!)
