Grilled Sweet Potatoes with Honey-Butter Glaze

We roast sweet potatoes all the time (slice ‘em thinly, spritz ‘em with a little canola oil, roast, flip, spritz the other side with canola oil and sprinkle with lemon juice, roast). They’re totally delicious and pretty darn healthy. Now that it’s grilling season, we’ve moved the sweet potato operation outside and experimented with a slightly less-healthy variation. The verdict? Totally delicious!

Sweet potatoes
Unsalted butter

1. Preheat grill.

2. Wash sweet potatoes and slice into rounds (about ¼-inch thick).

3. Combine butter and honey (you choose how much) in a microwaveable bowl and microwave until the butter melts. Stir to combine.

4. Brush one side of the sweet potato rounds with the honey-butter glaze and plop glazed-side-down onto the grill.

5. Cook until grill marks appear, then brush the glaze on the other side of the sweet potato, flip and cook until grill marks appear and the sweet potato is tender enough to bite into.
