There’s a couple of questions I always get asked when it comes to sweet potatoes –
Can you eat the skin of a sweet potato?
Absolutely! The skins of the potatoes are delicious, just makes sure you scrub the potatoes well before grilling.
Do you have to peel sweet potato wedges?
Nope! It’s your preference. Me I prefer skin-on, I also think they hold together better especially on the grill.
How do you make crispy sweet potato wedges?
If you’re looking for a crispy wedge you’ll need to start cornstarch. That’s really the secret to super crispy sweet potatoes. That and double frying in oil. Since we’re making these on the grill these sweet potatoes will have crispy edges and are wonderfully seasoned!
What spices to put on grilled sweet potato wedges?
Are sweet potatoes healthier?
Great question! Sweet potatoes provide a great source of nutrition and though delicious, are more expensive than white potatoes. Both have great nutritional value. I love sweet potatoes, but not just in the fall and winter. By grilling them we get to enjoy sweet potatoes year round!

How do you cut a sweet potato into wedges?
Start by slicing the end tips off the potato, slice it in half and then into quarters. Cut the sweet potatoes into a uniform size. If they aren’t all about the same size they will not cook evenly.
