"My husband never liked yams until I served them to him this way. The yams create their own glaze on the grill. You can add more herbs and spices to suit your own taste." — Foxy

yam, peeled and cut into 1/2 inch thick slices
olive oil-flavored cooking spray
salt to taste
I just tried this a few weeks ago for the first time. Very good and very easy. I didn't peel the yams, scrubbed them good instead. I drizzeled with olive oil and then the salt and pepper.
Ehh. I guess you really have to like yams to like these. I would have much preferred a mashed version with a little bit of brown sugar. But my fiance liked them.
Loved them! I too put the sweet potatoes in the microwave for just 4 minutes to start the cooking process, then put them on the grill. Brushed with butter, then added a little Splenda brown sugar on top at the end to carmelize. Yum!!
We're trying to be heart healthy, so instead of the salt, I added Garlic Powder, Paprika, Cayenne Pepper, and Chili Pepper to try to zest them up a bit. We skipped the butter. Tasted delicious (even without the butter and salt!)
I liked it, except I cut the slices crosswise and dipped them in olive oil.
Also since I like brown sugared sweet potatoes, I took about 6 or so of slices, put wrapped them in foil with some butter, brown sugar and ice cubes. I put the package on the grill until the sweet potato slices were soft. Yum!
i was looking for a healthy grilled yam/sweet potato recipe & happened to find this new one. the taste is great however the texture on the dry side. keep an eye on the grill....my thick cut potatoes were starting to char after 6 ~ 7 minutes. thanks foxy!
I modified this recipe by first steaming the yam slices for about 5 minutes and substituted the olive oil with a butter honey mixture and then sprinkled with cinnamon & sugar. Everyone loved them!
Yum! I did burn about half of them because I wasn't paying close enough attention, so make sure you keep an eye on them! Super tasty. Thanks :)
