Grilled:
These will completely grill on a low grill, but we usually speed things up a bit. Wash, dry and cook in microwave about five minutes. Slice in half. Score cut side of sweet potato and drizzle with a bit of olive oil, melted butter, or dipping oil. Cook cut side down on medium high grill till done, about 3-7 minutes, according to size of potato. If microwaved, you won’t need to turn. Serve immediately with butter, salt and brown sugar, if desired.
 

Baked fries:
Preheat oven to 450. May cook these peeled or not. Wash potato and dry very, very well. Cut into 1/2 to 3/4 inch thick slices. Place slices on baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil (potatoes should be glossy without sitting in a pool of oil). Salt and pepper to taste. Mix. Space evenly, without touching – that’s how they get soggy. Bake for 15 minutes, turn and bake another 10. These will be fairly brown, decrease time a couple of minutes each side if you like them less dark.
 

Mashed:
Follow directions for regular potatoes. Peel before boiling. Remember, sweet potatoes don’t take as long to cook.
