Get those grills ready to go! Our GRILLED SWEET POTATO WEDGES are going to be your new favorite BBQ side dish! Pair them with our CREAMY TOMATILLO DRESSING and you’ll have neighbors sneaking a few home from the BBQ so they can enjoy them later!
Since these potatoes are par baked you can prep them ahead of time. Or if you are planning on taking this dish to a summer get together, you can take the par baked and cooled potatoes with you then prepare them on the fly, grilling on demand, once you get there.
Have you ever enjoyed a grilled sweet potato? Or ever served them with lime and salt? You’ll make this once and wonder how your grilling adventures have survived this long without them. They are THAT good and we can almost guarantee that they’ll be the first dish to be eaten.
Balanced Bites has new infused salts. We wanted to sprinkle the CHILI LEMON LIME variety on these tates first thing! They also have a SUPER GARLIC ONION blend that is spectacular. The Balanced Bites team has prepared meals, a plethora of amazing spice blends, nut mixes and granola. Please be sure to check them out, they have been our friends in this commuity for many years. This team is also very socially progressive. After all that we learned in 2020, we appreciate them and other brands like them. They are willing to make a difference and amplify the needs of everyone.
We like all the colors this adorable tuber is available in. The contrast of the grill marks against the deep orange, purple or white is visually so intriguing! It’s like a finger food party on a platter! Grill on friends, it’s time to get outside and tackle our cabin fever! Let’s grill all season long, we deserve it after the last crazy year!
grilled sweet potato wedgesCourse: AppetizersCuisine: AmericanDifficulty: Easy
your new favorite sweet potato BBQ side dish
2 sweet potatoes
1 tbsp avocado oil
Fine sea salt
Zest of 1 lime
creamy tomatillo dressing
Balanced Bites chili lemon lime infused salt
Cilantro, finely chopped (opt)
Creamy tomatillo dressing for dipping
- Preheat your oven to 385°. Line a small baking sheet with parchment paper, wash potatoes and parbake until potatoes are nearly done and give a little. You don’t want them too soft so they’ll stand up to being flipped on the grill. No need to peel them, having the skins on them make flipping them on the grill a bit more stable.
- Once potatoes are done, let them cool slightly. Cut them in half lengthwise, then into 3 or 4 wedges depending on the size. Place avocado oil in a small bowl and brush the sides of each wedge using a pastry brush. Sprinkle with a little sea salt.
- Grill until lightly golden brown and you have some fun grill marks, carefully flip over and grill the other side of the wedge.
- Remove to a serving platter. Sprinkle with lime zest and chili lemon lime salt. Serve with lime wedges and squeeze over the top just before serving. Garnish with cilantro if using & side of creamy tomatillo dressing.
