Grilled Glazed Sweet Potato Kabobs Plus Video


If you love sweet potatoes as we do and want to try a fun easy way to eat them, here's your recipe!

See Video below... these are so easy!
3 to 4 sweet potatoes washed and microwave for 3 to 4 minutes
maple syrup
cinnamon
wooden or metal skewers
cooking oil spray
optional: coconut

Heat grill on high. Microwave and cool potatoes. Remove skins, then slice potato in half then in cubes. Thread on skewers. Place on hot grill and continue to cook around 10 minutes until cooked and grill lines form.

Brush with a mixture of 1/2 cup of maple syrup and 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon. Cook 1 more minute, you can also add the coconut and toast a few minutes, watch carefully or it will burn.  Remove from grill.

Brush again with more syrup if preferred extra sweet and sprinkle with coconut.

I don't think I've ever grilled sweet potatoes and yet prefer them over russet or Yukon for their nice creamy texture and flavor. I bet grilling them brings out the sugar making them taste that much better not to mention what they've already been mixed with. I need to try this.

Thanks for sharing. Sorry I haven't been around much. I've been so busy I'm barely posting.

These are a must try. I might even sprinkle with a little cayenne to give it the sweet and heat kick.

This does bring grilling to a whole new level. I have never thought about potatoes and your choice of the sweet ones is a good one for the cooking method here. I am thinking that the grill does some caramelizing to the outside of those potatoes which makes this a winner-yum!

We have a sweet-potato connection going on today! I love the sweet, spicy feel of these. We have vowed to use sweet potatoes more and more in this house - so this is a perfect recipe to keep for the summer.
