Sweet Potato Hash + Chilli & BACON

sweet potato hash + chilli & bacon camping recipeSweet, hot and smoky, what else could you want when camping? I love the gooey nature of fried sweet potato as it is and let's face it bacon makes everything better...

As with any chilli dishes, the variety you go for determines the heat and flavour that you'll get so you can have it as mild or hot as you like, plus you can experiment with different chillies for a different experience each time. This hash is divine scattered over a salad or makes a  great easy breakfast of itself with the addition of an egg.


Ingredients:    (feeds 2)

1 small sweet potato

1 small chilli, finely chopped / 1/2 tsp dried chilli flakes

black pepper

3-4 rasher of streaky bacon, chopped into lardons

oil for frying

+ optional 1 tsp smoked paprika



1. Peel the sweet potato and chop into 1cm cubes.

2. Combine sweet potato, bacon, and chilli in a hot pan with a drizzle of oil to begin frying. Season with the pepper. The bacon will release more fat  as it cooks to keep things going, you shouldn't need salt as the bacon is already salty.

3. Sprinkle the paprika over the top if using and stir in. Toss and turn everything regularly to prevent any bits burning, for approx. 20 mins or until the sweet potato is soft and the bacon crisp.

4. Serve immediately and enjoy!
