Spray your grill rack with cooking spray
Preheat the grill on medium heat
Peel the sweet potatoes and cut into 1/2 inch slices
Bring a medium sauce pan of water to a boil and place the potatoes in it
Cook until the potatoes are just starting to soften
Remove potatoes from water and set aside to cool
In a small mixing bowl, combine the butter, brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg
Microwave for one minute and stir till liquid
Brush the potatoes on one side and place, brushed side down, on the grill
Brush the other side and let cook for about 7 minutes
Flip potatoes over and brush again with butter mixture, cook for another 7 minutes
Potatoes are done if you can stick a toothpick through them easily
Place potatoes on a serving platter and drizzle with remaining butter mixture
You can make this recipe in a skillet, they won't look as pretty, but they are still yummy! A great addition to just using sweet potatoes is to add some sliced apples to the potatoes. Apples are really delightful when brushed with this butter mixture, and grilled, and they are scrumptious when mixed with the sweet potatoes. You should try it!
Grill Mats are the Best!
If you are grilling things like potatoes or peppers, or actually anything that is small enough to fall through the cooking grate, I recommend getting a grill mat. I recently bought a Aoocan Grill Mat and I just love it. It keeps your food from falling through the grate and it also keeps it from touching the grid, which many times is not the cleanest.
I got 5 Aoocan grill mats for $12.99 and they are really awesome! You can also put them on the bottom rack of your oven to keep spills off the floor of your oven.
Have a great weekend and grill some potatoes!
