    Add in a pinch of cayenne pepper for a little heat is desired, you can also bake these in the oven --- these may be prepared hours in advance placed in the foil pan and refrigerated just drizzle on the orange juice before grilling :)

      Another great recipe, Kitten, as always! I made these for ZWT5 for myself because hubby doesn't like sweet potatoes. (His mom always made them whipped with a ton of brown sugar.) But THIS recipe, with just enough sugar and the cayenne...well, he loved them! I was a little surprised! He said he would eat them any time when made this way. And I loved them, too. I didn't have an aluminum pan, so I just did them in the oven covered for 15 minutes, then uncovered for another 15, adding just a bit more fresh squeezed orange juice, as I think fresh squeezed is an important factor for taste, (2 tablespoons or so.) They were moist, perfectly sweet and spicy. Next time I will leave off the thyme, somehow we just can't wrap our tongues around it with these tropical recipes, but that's just a personal preference. Thanks, Kitten!

      These potatoes were a big hit! Cooked on the grill and should have started a good 15 minutes prior to putting on my chicken (total cook time for the potatoes on the grill for me was about 25-30 minutes....but live and learn! So we didn't get to enjoy till halfway through our dinner of Bob Marley's Jamaican Jerk Chicken Skewers . The sauce is so nice....not as dessert sweet as your typical thanksgiving type sweet potato dish....the thyme and lemon pepper along with the brown sugar and orange juice provided just the right amount of savory and sweet! We used some of the extra sauce to dip our Twice Fried Plantains . Thank you for a great sweet potato recipe!!
