Grilled Sweet Potato Wedges

13 Jul

Fly-by post, y’all, of something simple and yummy.

I grilled, on an outside grill, for the first time ever the other night. I know, right? It took me a bit to get the flame just right, but dinner of burgers and sweet potato wedges was yummy. And I could have done the ‘taters in the oven, but this gave them a beautiful char that was delicious, without heating up the house.

Easy peasy: Peel two or three sweet potatoes and cut them in half (same way you’d half a lemon–right through the short side, in the middle). Cut the halves into wedges (I got six wedges out of each half). Boil them in water on the stove for 5 minutes, drain in a colander, and let them sit until they’re almost all the way dry.

Heat your grill up. Spray or lightly pat your potato wedges with oil, and put them on the grill. Turn after a few minutes, when they start to char up, until all sides are crispy. Sprinkle with a little salt (brown sugar would also be yummy) and enjoy.
