Ingredients

  • 1 sweet potato
  • olive oil
  • salt and pepper
  • herbs (optional) I use rosemary and thyme

Instructions

  • Wash potato and remove any blemishes. I keep the skins on. There is a lot of vitamins in that skin! Slice in half lengthwise. With cut side down, cut 1/2 inch slices.

Grilled

  • Spray a piece of foil large enough to fan out the sliced potato.  Lightly drizzle olive oil over potato slices. Sprinkle rosemary (fresh is best but dry will do), salt and pepper on the potatoes.  Fold the foil to create a packet.  You can also split the potato into two packets if the potato is large.
  • Place on a preheated grill for 15 minutes or until done, turning over halfway through cooking.

Oven Baked

  • Preheat the oven to 375°F
  • Cover a cookie sheet with foil and spray with non-stick cooking spray or spray the pan directly. Spread out the potato slices on a baking sheet.
  • Lightly drizzle olive oil over potato slices. Sprinkle rosemary (fresh is best but dry will do), salt and pepper on the potatoes.
  • Bake 12 to 15 minutes, turning the pan half-way through baking. The thicker the potatoes are sliced, and the more potatoes on the sheet determine how long they will take to bake. I set my timer for about 12 minutes as my halfway point. It usually tells me how close they are to being done. This small amount was done in 15 minutes, larger amounts may take twice that.
