Grilled Sweet Potatoes

"I love trying new recipes, so my son-in-law suggested we grill sweet potatoes," relates Lillian Neer, Long Eddy, New York. "Served with steak, they're a great change of pace from traditional baked potatoes...and pretty, too."

    These sweet potatoes are SO good! I was put off by the garlic salt and pepper at first. But, I like a culinary challenge, so I went for it. Boy was I glad I did! I used Johnny's Garlic Bread seasoning instead of the garlic salt and pepper. The garlic salt gives the potato a cheesy texture and taste while still staying sweet. I can't really describe it, just try them! You'll be glad you did!
