Easy BBQ Sweet Potatoes

from Coach Courtney, RD

Make baked sweet potatoes on the barbecue for a simple side dish. These can be prepped in advance for a quick addition to a week night meal. Top the sweet potatoes like you would a traditional baked potato with sour cream (or Plain Greek yogurt), chili powder, fresh chives, or bacon bites. I personally love sweet potatoes topped with cinnamon, almond butter, and a dash of salt (sometimes I even add some cottage cheese!). It sounds weird but it is so tasty.


  • Medium-size sweet potatoes (cut into bite size chunks or a small to medium size)

  • Tin foil

  • Toppings (Plain Greek yogurt or sour cream, cheese, chili powder, cumin, chives, cinnamon, almond butter, peanut butter, etc.)


  1. Preheat BBQ at a medium heat

  2. Tightly wrap sweet potatoes in tin foil.

  3. Place sweet potatoes on the BBQ, close the lid, and cook for 40 minutes.

  4. Check doneness by squeezing them with the BBQ tongs. Depending on the size of your sweet potatoes they may need more or less time. Cut the sweet potatoes into bite size chunks for a faster cooking time.

Serving Size: 100g raw sweet potato (about the size of your fist)
