Grilled Sweet Potato Spears

When I first moved here last summer, Sean and Gregory were kind enough to let me move in for a few months....boy was I lucky!

Summertime for them means lots of grilling and well, I was spoiled!

I thought I'd share one of my favorites... something that is unusual, but goes great with anything!

Sean cooked this up for me one night and I was hooked! Between his killer Turkey Burgers (recipe to come) and these Sweet Potatoes it's a wonder I moved out...

Grilled Sweet Potato Spears:

Cut Sweet Potato into 4 long shaped spears
Soak in Friankies 457 Olive Oil (my absolute favorite)
Sprinkle liberally with Salt and Pepper
Add a dash of cayenne pepper to each spear
A bit of paprika

Lay Sweet Potatoes skin side down on the grill 8-10 minutes
Flip and grill for 3-5 minutes until crispy on the outside and soft inside (test with a fork)

Serve with your favorite meat or fish or just eat as a snack....

Quick, easy, healthy, and delicious to boot!!
