I like food that seems like junk food but has none of the downsides – that is that are delicious but that aren’t expensive, that aren’t stuffed full of fat and that don’t make you feel sick afterwards.
This recipe ticks all those boxes.
I used Ashley’s recipe for sweet potato fries as a base, and then went nuts. This recipe serves one, but you can easily double or triple or quadruple it for as many people as you need. It’s a taste explosion, and very good for eating in front of the telly.
To serve one, you will need:
- A large sweet potato
- Worcestershire sauce
- Half a can of baked beans
- Half a red onion
- As much grated cheddar as you like
- A dollop of Greek yogurt
- A spring onion
- Two rashers of bacon
- A pinch of coriander
- Heat the oven to 200°c. Cut your sweet potato into chips, leaving the skin on. Line a tray with baking parchment and spray/toss the chips with oil. Arrange so they’re not touching each other and bake for 15-20 minutes. Remove, turn over, respray if necessary, and bake for 10-15 minutes more
- Whilst the potatoes are cooking, slice the onion and cook in oil or a little butter on a low heat until they’re soft and rich. Remove, then fry the bacon until crispy and slice into strips
- Put the fries in a bowl. Add a good shake of Worcestershire sauce to the beans, cook them, and top the fries with them. Add the onion, then the cheese, then half the bacon, then the yogurt, then the bacon and the sliced spring onion. Finish with a pinch of coriander
