As long as you have the grill fired up, you might as well throw on some vegetables.
Sweet potatoes are a favorite and go with so many grilled foods. Like all vegetables, it is important for each slice to be uniform in size as the others so that each will cook at the same amount of time. The easiest way to cook sweet potatoes is to coat all sides with oil or melted butter, add a little salt and grill until tender like the photo above.
Bourbon Grilled Sweet Potatoes
for every 2 servings
1 large sweet potato
2 tablespoons butter
1/2 teaspoon brown sugar
pinch of salt
good splash of bourbon
I like to pre-cook the potato a few minutes in the microwave. Peel and cut into 1-inch slices. Melt butter in an iron skillet or grilling pan, place potato slices in the skillet and sprinkle with the brown sugar and salt.
Place skillet on medium heat grill. When the potatoes begin to brown on the bottom, remove skillet from fire, add the bourbon and turn the potatoes to cook on the other side. Cook until a nice glaze has formed in the pan, somewhat syrupy in consistency.
