This makes a great breakfast or brunch dish. The sweet, slightly caramelised sweet potato is crying out for a few rashers of crispy bacon and a soft poached egg!

  • Method :

    1. Peel the sweet potatoes and chop them into approx. 1-­‐inch dice. Place in a pan of cold water with a little salt, bring to the boil, cook for 5 minutes, and drain.
    2. Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a large frying pan and -­‐ if using -­‐ lightly fry the garlic for 1 minute. Add the spring onions, sliced pepper, and thyme. Fry for a further minute.
    3. Add the diced sweet potato, increase the heat slightly, and toss all of the ingredients together. Add the butter. Continue to fry for 5-­‐6 minutes, or until the sweet potato begins to colour and caramelise slightly. Alternatively, if using an ovenproof pan, place in a hot oven for 10 minutes to finish cooking.
    4. Add the chives, season with salt and pepper, and serve immediately.
