This recipe is one of my favourite comfort foods on Slimming World. It’s fun to look at, delicious to eat and great for sharing – although I tend to scarf the whole thing to myself.
This looks and tastes like junk food, but it’s not. It looks and tastes like it should be packed full of fat and calories, but it’s not. Use Fry Light to cook the fries and onion, low-fat mature cheddar and 0% Total instead of sour cream. Bam. Tasty and delicious, and also pretty good for you.
Best eaten in front of the TV, I think. I’ll be watching the final of GBBO whilst chowing down on this.
- 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
