If you are having a cookout, these Grilled Sweet Potatoes are a must have. I’m sharing this recipe in partnership with The Produce Gathering.
The past few times that I’ve picked up my produce basket from The Produce Gathering it’s been packed with sweet potatoes. I should say HUGE sweet potatoes. We use them frequently during the winter months, but during the summer we tend to use them a bit less. I thought though since we were cooking out, I’d grill a few and see how those taste. I was absolutely thrilled with how tasty these turned out!
I decided to thinly slice these up and place them on greased tin foil, then I topped them with a little bit of cinnamon and butter. After a few tries, I’ve decided melted butter mixed with cinnamon is by far my favorite way to do it, then just evenly pour the melted cinnamon butter over the sweet potatoes.
Once they are nicely coated, wrap them up and grilled them for about 20-30 minutes on medium-high heat. It’s best to keep a close eye on them, but they will be nicely toasted with a hint of cinnamon butter. My husband says that they would be even better with marshmallows on top too, which I have to agree but if you want to skip the calories then just pass on those. I chose to pass on those, but they sure sounded tasty!
Do you love sweet potatoes? This recipe is also a good one for fall cookouts too. We tend to have more cookouts in the fall than we do the summer…that heat I’m telling ya…it’s awful!
Right now, you can head over to The Produce Gathering and enter in code MHCMember to get your FREE membership, then you can see what all they have to offer. We typically get the family basket and that last us just over a week or so with produce, sometimes a bit longer depending on how much is in the basket that week. My kids love the produce days when we get our basket because it’s so fun to whip up so many fresh recipes.
Now, are you ready to try these? Enjoy!

Seriously get out of here! This looks amazing! I do this all of the time in the skillet. Why not on the grill? I am off to give it a try right now because I have several sweet potatoes on my counter 🙂
Our teenage daughter is vegan, so cooking with fresh vegetables is a must in our house. Sweet potatoes are a real favorite too. She loves them grilled, fried or baked. We g through five or six a week for sure.

Sweet potatoes are one of my favorite foods of all time. I love the sweetness and creaminess of them! I’ve never tried to simply grill them, but this recipe looks and sounds delicious! I can’t wait to make these!

I love sweet potatoes! I wish my family ate them. I’d serve them every meal LOL! I don’t usually add butter, so this would have to be for an indulging day. We all deserve to indulge once in awhile. And with sweet potatoes? Sign me up.

This looks really good. I haven’t had sweet potatoes in a really long time. This is a great recipe to try out while reintroducing them into my diet. I am excited to try it, thanks for sharing!
I have not had grilled sweet potatoes in such a long time, just looking at this recipe I am getting hungry and ideas at the same time. I usually fry my sweet potatoes but love grilled ones too

I am definitely going to try this recipe! I thought I had invented every possible way to eat sweet potatoes (brownies, roasted, etc), but grilled? Brilliant!
Yummmm! I’m always looking for new healthy dishes to cook up for the fam. I can’t wait to try this out.
