  1. 1 of 5 Prepare outdoor grill with medium-hot coals, or heat gas grill to medium-high, or see Stovetop Method, below.
  2. 2 of 5 Pierce potatoes with fork. Place potatoes on piece of paper toweling in microwave oven. Microwave on 100% power 10 minutes or until partially cooked, but still very firm, turning over halfway through cooking.
  3. 3 of 5 When potatoes are cool enough to handle, cut each lengthwise into quarters.
  4. 4 of 5 Meanwhile, in a small skillet, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the walnuts, brown sugar, salt, black pepper, allspice and vinegar; cook, stirring, until the brown sugar is melted, about 2 minutes. Remove the skillet from the heat. Brush the cut sides of the potatoes with the brown sugar glaze, leaving the walnuts in the skillet.
  5. 5 of 5 Grill the potatoes, cut side down, uncovered, for 5 minutes. Turn the wedges, so the second cut side is facing down; grill 5 minutes. Turn the wedges, skin side down. Brush the cut sides with glaze. Grill for 5 minutes or until the potatoes are tender. Transfer the potatoes to a platter. Spoon remaining glaze with nuts over potato wedges.

Stovetop Method:

  1. 1 of 1 Heat a stovetop grill pan over medium-high heat. Cook the sweet potato wedges as directed in step 5 on the grill pan instead of on the grill.
