Recipe adapted from High Heels and Grills. For more info, visit their website.
- 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
Preheat your gill to medium high heat. While it’s heating up, make sure to oil the grates but don't wait too long.
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.
Meanwhile, combine the sugar, cayenne pepper, black pepper cinnamon, and cloves together in a small bowl; set aside.
Transfer the sweet potatoes to a bowl of cold water. Once cool, drain and peel.
Cut the sweet potatoes lengthwise into wedges, about 8 per potato.
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.
Grill the wedges on your preheated grill for 3 to 4 minutes per side.
