Grilled Sweet Potato Coins

We love sweet potatoes around here – so this week, we decided to try them on the grill.  These will be a great accompaniment to our summer grilling. 

While they weren’t overly crunchy {sweet potatoes aren’t in general}, we really appreciated the taste – and the fact that we didn’t have to turn on the oven!

Grilled Sweet Potato Coins


  • 4 medium sweet potatoes
  • Olive Oil
  • Sea Salt
  • Garlic Powder, optional


Begin washing your sweet potatoes, and peeling them.  Then, prick the sweet potato with a fork a time or two.  Microwave the potato to soften it just a bit – about 1-2 minutes. 

Then, using a mandolin slicer – slice the sweet potatoes into thin coins.  Use caution here because the sweet potatoes will be warm!

Toss the coins with olive oil and sea salt.  Add garlic powder, if desired. 

Layer the sweet potatoes onto tinfoil and either place the tinfoil directly on the grill grates, or into a grill basket. 

Grill over medium heat, turning and/or checking after 5 minutes, grilling for 15ish minutes until potatoes are soft and lightly grilled. 

Note – the fries soften a bit as they cook and therefore flipping them can be challenging – use caution to avoid breaking.  But, if they do break – they’re still tasty!



  1. LOVE,LOVE,LOVE... do try onions with them too. This is probably one of my favorites!
    Have a fun holiday weekend,
    Hugs to you and your prince!

  2. I love sweet potatoes! Don't think I ever had them grilled! I know this is weird but I don't eat sweet potatoes much during the summer - I tend to gravitate toward them in the winter. Will have to fix that.

  3. Ooooo have to try these this weekend! Thanks!


Thanks for stopping by! I'd love to hear from you; especially how you're finding JOY in your kitchen.
