Sweet potatoes are one of my favorite summer side dishes. Not only are they extremely tasty, they’re also packed with vitamins.

Put the halved sweet potatoes submerged in a pot of water. Cover and bring the water to a boil over high heat. When fork-tender (about 10 minutes), drain the potatoes in a colander and let cool.

Once the potatoes are cool enough to touch, cut each half lengthwise into 4 (1-inch-wide) wedges.

Preheat your outdoor grill to medium heat and lightly oil grate.

Lightly coat the wedges with cooking spray and sprinkle with salt.

Arrange the potato slices in a single layer on the grill. Cover and grill (turning once halfway through) until the sweet potatoes are tender and grill marks appear (about 10 minutes).

Remove the sweet potatoes from the grill and brush evenly with the melted butter.

Let cool for about 5 minutes before serving.

Miss Mae's Tips:

I love leaving the skins on these! It adds so much more flavor and even better, it keeps all that healthy fiber!
You can also sprinkle some brown sugar on these after they're done cooking to caramelize while they cool. Yummy!
