Grilled Hasselback Sweet Potatoes

If you haven’t tried to grill your sweet potatoes before then you are in for a treat. The grill caramelizes the sugars in the potatoes to form nice crusty grill marks over a soft interior.

Ingredients

  • 6 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tsp. finely chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1 tsp. + 1 Tbsp. olive oil, divided
  • 4 medium sweet potatoes
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • ¼ tsp. pepper

Directions

  1. Preheat grill to medium.
  2. In a small bowl, mix together garlic, rosemary, and 1 teaspoon olive oil. Set aside.
  3. Cut off a thin slice of each potato lengthwise to create a even base for potato to rest on. Slice off ends of each potato. Rest potato lengthwise between two chopsticks or wooden spoons to act as a stop for the knife and carefully cut vertical slits in each potato about every ⅛th inch.
  4. Brush potatoes with remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Place potatoes on grill, cover, and cook until almost tender (15-20 minutes).
  5. Spread garlic and rosemary mixture over top of potatoes, cover, and continue to cook until soft in the center and crisp around the edges (15-20 minutes).
