Sweet and Spicy Sweet Potato Wedges

Recipe adapted from High Heels and Grills. For more info, visit their website.

Ingredients

  • 3 teaspoons salt
  • 2 large sweet potatoes
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper (or as desired)
  • 1½ teaspoons black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cloves

Preparation

  1. Preheat your gill to medium high heat. While it’s heating up, make sure to oil the grates but don't wait too long.

  2. 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, but not enough to make mashed potatoes.

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

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

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

  6. Coat the potatoes with olive oil by turning them over in a large bowl coated in oil. Add the sugar and spice mix, coat evenly.

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