Woman's Weekly recipe Barbecued sweet potatoes are delicious, but with this chilli and cinnamon butter topping, they're to die for!

Ingredients

  • 125g (4oz) butter, softened
  • 1 red or green chilli, de-seeded and finely chopped
  • 1 level tsp ground cinnamon
  • 6 medium sweet potatoes, scrubbed

The flavoured butter can be made in advance and kept in the fridge for up to 3 days. The potatoes may be boiled a few hours in advance and wrapped in foil. Boiling the potatoes helps to speed up the cooking time on the barbecue, rather than cooking them from raw.

Method

  1. Beat the butter until it's very soft, then stir in the chilli and cinnamon.
  2. Scoop butter out on to a small piece of baking parchment, then form the butter into a log shape, rolled up in the parchment. Chill until firm.
  3. Put the potatoes in a large pan of water and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 10-15 mins, then drain.
  4. Wrap the potatoes individually in foil and cook them on the barbecue for 20-30 mins, turning them occasionally, until they are very tender.
  5. Cut the butter into 6 slices. Remove the potatoes from the barbecue and cut a slit or cross in each one. Place a slice of butter onto each potato. Serve immediately, or re-wrap them in the foil to keep warm.

Cook's tip: The flavoured butter can be made in advance and kept in the fridge for up to 3 days. The potatoes may be boiled a few hours in advance and wrapped in foil. Boiling the potatoes helps to speed up the cooking time on the barbecue, rather than cooking them from raw.Per serving: 377 calories; 18g fatFeature: Sue McMahon
