  • 2.5 pounds sweet potatoes (the orange variety), peeled and quartered into thick wedges
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons real maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons chipotle in adobo sauce (just the sauce, not peppers)
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt


  • Preheat grill to 375 degrees Fahrenheit using two-zone cooking or direct/indirect.
  • Place the potato wedges into a large pot and cover with cold water. Bring the potatoes to a boil and continue boiling until they are just fork tender (about 15 - 18 minutes).
  • After the potatoes are fork tender, drain from water in a colander. Place the potatoes on a large sheet tray or bowl and coat with olive oil.
  • Over indirect heat, place the oiled potato wedges and grill each side for 4 - 5 minutes or until slight char marks appear. After all three sides are grilled remove and place in a large pot or bowl.
  • Add remaining ingredients. Using a masher tool, mash the potatoes and incorporate the ingredients. There will be a few rustic chunks. If you like it more pureed, use a blender to get a smoother texture.
  • For a fun garnish add a handful of candied nuts, like pecans.


For a fun topping consider adding some candied nuts.
