Ingredients

• 1 pack of Jolly Hog Treacle bacon
• 2 sweet potatoes
• Pumpkin (optional)
• Wholegrain mustard
• Honey
• Chilli Flakes
• Salad
• Red onion
• Balsamic glaze or balsamic vinegar

Method

• Peel your sweet potatoes and chop them into fingers. You can also add pumpkin at this point for roasting, we just were too hungry & short on time!
• Add them to a roasting tray and coat with olive oil.
• Sprinkle with pepper, salt and chilli flakes. You can also add cinnamon for an extra Autumn touch or remove the chilli altogether for children!
• Make sure the spiced sweet potato chunks are covered with the oil and seasoning then leave to roast on 220 fan/200 oven. Check back after 20 mins.
• Chop red onions into smaller slices.
• Fry your onions in a frying pan for a minute or so, then add in the balsamic glaze and stir until the onions begin to caramelise. Remove from the pan.
• In a separate pan, fry your bacon on both sides until cooked & crispy then remove.
• Chuck your bacon, roasted veg and onions on top of a bed of rocket and spinach. Job done!
