Grilled cheese and bacon bits on creamy sweet potatoes - need I say more?
Serves 4 as a side
500 g yellow flesh sweet potatoes (choose smaller sized sweet potatoes)
30 ml (2 T) canola oil
30 ml (2 T) Huletts Treacle Sugar
125 ml (½ cup) sour cream
salt and black pepper, to taste
50 g (± ½ cup) mature cheddar cheese, grated
125 g bacon pieces, fried until crispy
spring onions, sliced
Preheat the oven to 180°C. Grease and line a baking tray with baking paper.
Rinse and dry the sweet potatoes. Toss in oil to coat.
Place on the baking tray and bake for 20 minutes.
Remove from the oven, sprinkle with Huletts Treacle Sugar and bake for a further 20 - 30 minutes (until soft). Set aside to cool.
Once cooled, slice sweet potatoes in half lengthways.
Scoop out the flesh of the sweet potatoes to make a hollow, leaving the skin intact.
Mix the sweet potato with the sour cream and season with salt and pepper to taste.
Fill the sweet potato hollows with the sour cream mixture and sprinkle with cheese.
Place under the grill for 8 - 10 minutes or until the cheese begins to melt.
Garnish with bacon pieces and spring onions. Serve hot.
