Ingredients:

  • 1 kg Sweet Potatoes, cut into small wedges
  • 1 tbsp. Olive Oil
  • 2 tbsp. MasterFoods™ Memphis Style Sweet and Smoky Seasoning
  • 8 Rashers of Smoked Bacon
  • 2 tbsp. Maple Syrup
  • ½ cup Mozzarella Cheese
  • ½ cup Cheddar Cheese
  • ¼ cup Parmesan Cheese
  • ¼ cup MasterFoods™ Ranch Style Dressing
  • Fresh herbs, such as Lemon Thyme, to garnish

 

Cooking Instructions:

  • Preheat an oven 180°C. Put the sweet potato on a baking tray, coat with olive oil and sprinkle over the seasoning. Bake for 20 to 30 minutes until tender.
  • Meanwhile, cook bacon in a frying pan until just soft and starting to crisp. Add the maple syrup and cook for 30 seconds, then set aside on a wire rack to drain. Cut into 3 cm pieces once cooled.
  • Combine the mozzarella and cheddar cheese in a bowl and set aside until needed.
  • Pile wedges in the middle of a serving tray and sprinkle over some of the mixed cheese, bacon pieces, and the rest of the mixed cheese. Bake for 5 minutes until cheese has melted.
  • Remove from the oven, sprinkle over the parmesan cheese and drizzle over some ranch dressing, then scatter over the fresh herbs.

Tips:

  • For extra sauce, drizzle over MasterFoods™ Hot Chilli Sauce with the ranch dressing.
  • Can easily be replicated with regular chips, fries, or baked potatoes.
  • Add some MasterFoods™ Aioli or MasterFoods™ Mild Sweet Thai Chilli Sauce on the side, for dipping.
