Coal-Fired Sweet Potatoes

Cuisine:

    Most of the recipes involved in this blog require a stove, grill or an oven. This one acts as a point of relief as it’s good to go with only some coal. It should also be mentioned that this one is easy to prepare and to make that “roast the potatoes” would count as all the steps needed. No oil to marinate. No rub. and no foil. potatoes are that versatile!

    Coal-Fired Sweet potatoes can be described as “an appetizing gift that resembles a blazing meteorite.” It is relatively simple yet represents a high in every meal it’s served with. The potatoes can be a standalone meal or can complement a meat-based recipe. The preparation method would suggest that the sweet potatoes would fit in open-air parties or gatherings where a cookout can be held.

     

    We recommend that the potatoes are served with butter sauce or maple pecan butter, as adding moisture to the dish would significantly help the texture to melt in the mouth. When the event calls for it, potatoes can also be baked in the oven; this is another way to enjoy this one. It absolutely works with every masterful meal you would prepare!
