A sweet-spicy mixture is rubbed over sweet potato slices, grilled, and sprinkled with goat cheese. A nice side dish to grilled meats.

  • Servings: 4-6

2 Tbls Butter, melted
1 Tbls Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 tsp Brown Sugar
1 tsp Salt
¾ tsp Pepper
¾ tsp Chili Powder
½ tsp Cinnamon
¼ tsp Cayenne
4 oz Goat Cheese


Microwave pierced potatoes for 4-5 minutes until just tender; cool slightly. Cut into disc shapes about 1/4-inch thick. Brush potatoes with melted butter and oil. Combine brown sugar, salt, pepper, and spices; sprinkle or rub over potatoes. Grill potatoes over medium high heat for 2-3 minutes on each side until grill marks form and potatoes are tender. Sprinkle warm potatoes with crumbled goat cheese.

You do not have to peel the potatoes, just wash and pat dry before microwaving.
