Grilled Sweet Potatoes

Grilled Sweet Potatoes


These easy grilled sweet potato wedges are the perfect veggie side and pair well with just about any grilled protein, especially burgers!


  • 3 large sweet potatoes, scrubbed well
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh thyme, chopped (optional)
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground pepper


  1. Place potatoes in a large pot, cover with cold salted water then bring to a boil. Simmer until slightly resistant when pierced with a sharp knife or fork, about 10 minutes, depending on size. Drain well and allow to cool.
  2. Once cool enough to handle, slice potatoes in half lengthwise and into wedges.
  3. In a small bowl, mix together olive oil, thyme, salt, and pepper. Brush this mixture on sweet potatoes.
  4. Heat grill to medium-high, lightly oil grill rack and grill potatoes until grill marks appear and potatoes are cooked through, flipping once. This should take about 7-8 minutes.
  5. Serve wedges with a dipping sauce, like ketchup, mustard or homemade garlic aioli.
