This is a very easy grilling recipe with easy tinfoil cleanup. I tried this on my family this weekend and they loved it. I think it may be a new Thanksgiving classic.

  1. Slice and split your sweet potatoes and apple between two tinfoil packages (two strips of tinfoil folded together).
  2. Top each with half the butter and brown sugar and a few dashes of cinnamon (optional).
  3. Close the tinfoil packages and put on the grill on medium/low heat for approximately 40 minutes, turning half way through.
  4. Make sure you don't burn, brown sugar doesn't taste good burnt.

Delicious! I made a couple of changes, and I'm glad I did. Instead of 1/2 cup of butter, I used 1/4 cup. I also used slightly less brown sugar (6 Tbsp instead of 1/2 cup) and was delighted by the results! I did use the cinnamon and also added a sprinkle of RealSalt. I loved the addition of the apple for a little extra kick of flavor. Thank you for such a great recipe!

Candied sweet potatoes in foil. It couldn't get any easier.
