    Place sweet potatoes, onion and red pepper onto 12-inch length of heavy-duty aluminum foil. Dot top of vegetables with butter. Top with another 12-inch length of foil. Seal edges of foil by folding over twice.

  3. STEP 3

    Place aluminum foil packet onto grill. Grill, turning once, 15-20 minutes or until potatoes are tender.

Tip #1

We recommend orange sweet potatoes for this recipe. Sweet potatoes are found in two varieties: white and orange. Orange sweet potatoes tend to be sweeter than the white variety.

Tip #2

Sweet potatoes are found in two varieties. A pale-skinned variety and a darker-skinned variety sometimes incorrectly called a yam. Pale sweet potatoes have a thin yellow skin and pale yellow flesh. They are not sweet and moist like the darker orange-skinned variety which has orange flesh.
