This would be a Phase II.


Grilled Sweet Potatoes
...................................
- peel a sweet potato and cut into 1/2" slices
- mix together 3 TBSP of olive oil, 1 tsp thyme, a sprinkle of cayenne, and salt and pepper to taste
- stir it into the potato slices
- shove it under the grill
- flip frequently until "done"

I'm not sure about the number of servings. My DH and I LOVE this, and have it every second day.

Hey Ellis,

Do these get crispy, especially if you cut them thin? I have been reading the message boards looking for some new food ideas, and I am intrigued by this one...

I had these quite often before starting SBD, and I could never get them crispy w/o burning them. Even when they're a little more 'chewy,' however, they're soooo yummy!

No, they don't get crispy. But they're really wicked!

Ellis, I tried these for the second time tonight, this time with a little brown sugar substitute in addition to the olive oil, salt, pepper, and thyme. Yumm-O! Thanks for sharing. I don't typically even like sweet potatoes.

I have a question about sweet potatoes. What's the difference between a sweet potatoe and a yam. In some gorcery stores it's called a yam and in others it's called a sweet potatoe but they look the same to me. Reading the SB book, yams is not on the list of foods to enjoy. So I'm a little confused.

Thanks,

Anna

Anna, the grocery stores always mix the name up. A sweet pototo is sort of long and red and smooth. The yams are darker and hairy-looking.

Fuzzy, I'm glad you liked them! I'm with you... I normally can't stand the things...

At my grocery store, the yams were larger and orange in color, and the sweet potatoes were long and thin and "white" in color. I fried my sweet potatoes too, but I used alittle splenda and cinnamon. They are good !!

Thanks,

I don't see why not, Gail.
I'd bake them at a fairly high temperature... 400ish? And keep an eye on them... I don't know how long they'd take. Maybe around 20 plus minutes? You might want to flip them mid-way.

I do bake them and then sprinkle a little nutmeg on top. Next time I will probably spray a little butter spray on too.

I do mine like that too, or with a little splenda and cinnamon instead of the spices to make a dessert out of them. I generally use just half a sweet potato (no one else in my family likes them, and I can't polish off a whole one by myself) and usually bake them at 400 degrees for 30 minutes, without flipping them over at all. I have to be really careful how I slice them - any less than .5" and they burn, any more and they're too mushy. But the ones that I get right are delicious!

I make these with my crinkle cutter and put them on my indoor grill. With just salt and pepper they are great with a steak. I don't miss the white potatoes at all.

I bake them at thanksgiving and serve them with ICBINB spray and a little bit of sugar free syrup (I was on Atkins prior to this...a couple of years ago). Even my husband liked them!!

I just tried drizzling some of that Davinci's carmel syrup, and a dash of splenda. Super yummy. I got the idea from Texas Roadhouse's Loaded Baked Potato. It's full of marshmallows and carmel syrup.
