  • 2 medium orange sweet potatoes/yams
  • 1 cup BBQ sauce (see post for healthy options)
  • 4 whole grain sandwich buns


  • garlic powder
  • onion powder
  • smoked paprika


  1. Peel the sweet potatoes. I use 1 potato for every 2 sandwiches I want to make. Sometimes I don't even peel them.

  2. Grate the sweet potatoes.

  3. Cook them in a skillet on med-high heat, adding small amounts of water every minute or so, until they look soft but not mushy. Season with salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, and/or smoked paprika if desired for even extra flavor.

  4. Remove from heat and pour the BBQ sauce over it, and coat well. Serve on a whole grain bun with additional BBQ sauce, if desired.
