Looking for a delicious side with an easy clean-up? Then you're going to want to make our grilled sweet potatoes in foil. When selecting sweet potatoes for our BBQ sweet potato dish, select ones that are dark in color. With only six ingredients, our sweet potato foil packets recipe is almost as easy as the clean-up! We love that the sweet potato foil packets are disposable, so you can spend more time enjoying company with family and friends and less time on clean-up duty.

  • 2 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt

  • 2
    Mix butter, honey and seasoned salt in small bowl. Drizzle over potato mixture; stir to mix. Fold foil over vegetables so edges meet. Seal edges, making tight 1/2-inch fold; fold again. Allow space on sides for circulation and expansion.
  • 3
    Cover and grill packet over medium heat 15 to 20 minutes or until sweet potatoes are tender. Place packet on serving platter. Cut large X across top of packet; unfold foil. Sprinkle with chives.

  • For the best flavor, buy sweet potatoes that are dark orange in color. Because they don't store well, keep them in a cool, dry, dark place for up to one week. Sweet potatoes shouldn’t be refrigerated.
  • For easy preparation, make these grilled sweet potatoes in foil in a disposable foil pan. Just cover with foil, then grill according to the recipe.
  • Sweet potatoes are an excellent source of beta-carotene, an antioxidant thought to reduce cancer risk.
