SPICY SWEET POTATO AND BACON BAKE
3 large sweet potatoes
6 rashers of smoked bacon
4oz creamy Lancashire cheese
2 red chilli peppers
1 green pepper
Cook the smoked bacon until almost crispy. In the meantime slice the green pepper into strips and put that under the grill. Remove and leave to cool.
Halve the sweet potatoes lengthways and cut grooves into the flesh. Grate the cheese. Finely chop the chilliís and mix with the cheese.
Using scissors cut up the bacon into small pieces. Push the bacon and green pepper into the grooves you have cut into the sweet potatoes. Top with the cheese and chilli mix and put the sweet potato halves back together. Wrap them in tin foil and bake in a medium/hot oven for an hour.
Serve with salad and dry white wine.
