A tasty and easy lunch or supper dish using our bacon. Don't be tempted to use cheaper versions of bacon as you won't get the intensity of flavours coming through.


  • 4 large sweet potatoes, washed skin left on
  • 200g dry cured bacon, chopped
  • 200g goats cheese (such as Ragstone), crumbled
  • 200ml soured cream
  • 8 slices pickled green jalapeños, chopped finely
  • 20g fresh coriander leaves, chopped
  • Step 1 Bake the sweet potatoes for 40-50 minutes at 200’C until soft and yielding.
  • Step 2 Whilst the potatoes are baking mix together the soured cream, crumbled feta, 15g coriander and jalapeños in a bowl and put to one side.
  • Step 3 Ten minutes before the end of the sweet potato cooking time dry fry the bacon over a high heat until crispy, approximately 5 minutes.
  • Step 4 Remove the sweet potatoes from the oven, split and spoon the feta cheese and cream mixture evenly between the potatoes.
  • Step 5 Top with the bacon and sprinkle the remaining chopped coriander over the top (and extra slices of Jalapeños if liked).
  • Step 6 Season to taste, although I never feel it needs any extra seasoning, and serve with a dressed green salad.
