"I believe this recipe originated on the Betty Crocker web site. It's simple to make on the grill and tastes oh so good. This is a side dish, but during the summer I make it as main dish if I want a meal with no meat or fish. The original recipe specifies yellow bell peppers, but you can easily change that to red or green bell peppers if you want a color that contrasts with the orange sweet potatoes."

Step by Step Method

Step 1

Heat grill to medium heat.

Step 2

Cut a piece of foil about 18 x 18 inches square. Lightly spray foil with cooking spray.

Step 3

Place sweet potatoes on foil, top with yellow pepper.

Step 4

Mix together the melted honey, butter, and seasoned salt. Pour over potato/pepper mixture. Toss slightly to distribute honey/butter.

Step 5

Note: You can add the chives to the vegetables now, or wait until after cooking and sprinkle them on top.

Step 6

Fold foil over vegetables and crimp to seal. Make sure you have a tight seal, but allow for circulation and expansion during grilling.

Step 7

Grill 15-20 minutes or until sweet potatoes are tender. Cut open foil packet and sprinkle with chives.
