“I don't really like the traditional sweet potato casserole, but my son loves sweet potatoes, so I try to come up with different ways to cook them. This spring I tried grilling them. These are now a favorite of mine and my sons.”

Directions

  1. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat, and lightly oil the grate.
  2. Divide the sweet potato cubes in half, and place each half in the center of a rectangle of aluminum foil. Top each portion with about half of the butter. Sprinkle about half of the brown sugar, cumin, and cayenne pepper over each portion. Season with salt and pepper. Fold the corners of the aluminum foil together and seal to form a pouch around each portion.
  3. Cook on the preheated grill, turning pouches every 10 minutes, until the potatoes are tender and cooked through, 20 to 30 minutes.

Excellent! I partially microwaved the potatoes first to cut down on cooking time. I put these into a foil pan sprayed with a bit of Pam to prevent sticking vs. foil packets. I love the sweet and spicy taste these have - it was a nice accompaniment to grilled pork.

Great flavors! I also didn't have room on my grill so I put the potatoes in a single layer in a casserole dish, sprinkles the sugar and spices over them and dotted with butter. I baked it at 375 until the potatoes were soft, turning occasionally to coat. Easy and so good!

These were great! If you have younger kids you may want to leave out the cayenne & substitute with cinnamon. My 4 year old was fine but they were a little too spicy for my 2 year old.
