Grilled Sweet Potato Wedges

I love when an entire meal can be cooked outside on the grill and I don't need to heat up the kitchen. These grilled sweet potatoes meet that requirement and are healthy, too! —Natalie Knowlton, Kamas, Utah

    These are wonderful, a sweet change of pace to white potatoes. I did not pre-boil them, 20 min on the grill & they were perfect!!

    Made this on Friday (the day it came in my email as recipe of the day) and we loved it! My husband was not a fan of sweet potatoes, having only had the mashed holiday type recipes. Since we have been married he has been good about "just trying" foods prepared in a new way. He was very surprized at how good they were. Recipe is simple and a keeper.

    Yum! Yes, cathycraig, leave the skins on as this holds the flesh together! And flavor, too!

    I'm certain in the photo the sweet potato is unpeeled. Directions state "Peeled wedges." ????? I would think they would fall apart peeled. Any clarification TOH? Wonderful recipe idea.

    The combination of the potatoes and dipping sauce was delish. I think I boiled them a little too long as they weren't very firm or "crunchy " Will definitely try again
