Why not swap your next jacket potato for a healthy alternative with our spiced sweet potato and egg recipe? A simple but flavoursome dish, we use fragrant harissa paste for an aromatic kick before adding a tasty egg right in the middle. Scatter with low-fat cheese, serve with salad and enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 1 (225g/8oz) sweet potato, scrubbed
  • 2.5ml/1/2 tsp Harissa or chilli paste
  • 1 spring onion, sliced
  • 1 large British Lion egg
  • 25g/1oz low fat cheddar cheese, grated

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 200C/Fan 180C/400F/Gas Mark 6.
  2. Prick the potato skin all over with a fork and rub salt into the skin. Bake for 40-50 minutes or until tender.
  3. Wrap the base of the potato in foil.
  4. Cut a cross in the potato and mix the Harissa and spring onion into the potato flesh.
  5. Make a hollow in the middle of the potato and carefully crack in the egg.
  6. Scatter over the cheese and return to the oven for a further 8-10 minutes or until the egg is baked to your liking.
  7. Serve with salad.
