Sweet potato, leek and bacon cakes

This is how I like my food, delicious and a little rough around the edges. Today I thought I'd share a recipe with you. It's filling, healthy(ish) and super tasty. If you're being good you can skip the hollandaise sauce but it adds a tangy creaminess that works beautifully with the sweetness of the sweet potato and the saltiness of the bacon.

Serves 2 - 4


3 small sweet potatoes (the kind you get in a bag at the supermarket)
5 rashers of bacon
1 leek
4 eggs
A generous sprinkle parsley
A pinch of oregano
Salt and pepper to taste
(Optional) 4 generous teaspoons of hollandaise sauce - I use the jar stuff. You can make your own, but aint nobody got time for that.


Peel the sweet potatoes and chop in to uniform sized chunks. Put in a pan and boil until soft.

Slice the leeks and chop the bacon into squares. Fry in a non stick pan or using a low calorie spray oil until thoroughly cooked.

Drain and mash the sweet potato. Mix in the leek and bacon and leave to cool until you're able mold it with your hands.

Mold the mixture into balls then flatten and fry until hot and browned.

Poach your eggs

Serve! Top your sweet potato, leek and bacon cake with a teaspoon of hallondaise sauce and top with a poached egg. Voila
