Grilled sweet potato packets make the easiest and healthiest side dish for any BBQ, party, or weeknight meal. Minimal clean-up is a big plus!
I’m pretty sure I could start every blog post with, “I had planned to do ABC, but then XYZ happened.” My grand plan or post before sharing these grilled sweet potato packets was to do a recipe round-up of some of my favorite grilling recipes to kick-off Memorial Day weekend. You know what? I’ve already done that post! And I’m thinking my latest grilled pork chops with lemony dill sauce would fit nicely in the post as well. Since I’m one step ahead of myself [for once], I’ll go ahead and share one of my NEW favorite side dishes for warm weather: grilled sweet potato packets.
Why You’ll Love These Grilled Sweet Potato Packets
I’m usually making lemon orzo and asparagus salad or Italian pasta salad during the spring and summer months, I forgot how tasty a THREE-INGREDIENT side dish is, especially when grilled alongside the main dish! The BEST part about this recipe? Minimal clean-up. I repeat. Minimal clean-up. There’s also something to be said about any potato cut into “fry” form.
While I’m certain you could season these grilled sweet potato packets with any of your favorite sweet potato seasonings [S&P works great too!], I tried mine with McCormick Hamburger Seasoning. There’s just about every flavor but the kitchen sink in the bottle, and it seems to have just the right spice mixture for anything grilled- not just hamburgers.
