Sweet Potato Spiral Sticks


After a few failed tries, my husband suggested wrapping the skewers in silver foil. The wrapper forms a steam basket on the grill, creating charred potato rounds that are completely soft even though they weren’t pre-boiled. And that’s great because one of the many perks of barbecuing is keeping the kitchen free of dirty pots. I will pass along the thanks!  

Yields 8-10 small skewers


1. Slice the sweet potatoes into very thin rounds. Toss them with the remaining ingredients. Allow to marinate for half an hour. This will allow the sweet potato to soften slightly for easier skewering.
2. Preheat grill to high heat. Thread sweet potato rounds on the skewer by piercing carefully through the middle. Once skewered, wrap the sweet potato sticks in aluminum foil. This will allow steam to soften the potato flesh without prior boiling.
3. Place the skewers on the top rack of the grates. Cook for 30 minutes, rotating the skewers halfway.
4. Unwrap and enjoy! Before serving, sprinkle with a bit more salt.
