  • 2 large sweet potatoes peeled & cut into 1/2-inch slices
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • oil for grill


  • 1/2 cup maple syrup -OR- good-quality pancake syrup
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp grated orange zest


  • Preheat grill to medium heat. Oil grill grates--I wad up some paper towels and pour oil on them then rub across grill grate. I've also used a dollar store pump spray bottle filled with oil, but find the towel method easier.
  • Brush potato slices with the 2 tbs olive oil. Place on grill and cook for 3 minutes each side--this is approximate. You want the potatoes to be almost done when you brush on the glaze.
  • When potatoes are just done, brush the side facing up liberally with glaze; turn and grill 2-3 minutes. Repeat with the other side. Watch them carefully and don't let them burn!
  • Remove to serving platter.
  • Serves 3-4
