Grilled Scallion Sweet Potatoes

You could always make these fantastic sweet potatoes in the oven, but if you have it full of food (such as a Thanksgiving turkey), just toss them on the grill like these grilled scallion sweet potatoes. I often cook sides on the grill, specially if I’m cooking them at a family get-together (you never know if there will be room in the oven when you get there!).Grilled Scallion Sweet Potatoes

These are tasty and sweet, with a nice hit from the green onions. We really liked them.
