Baked Sweet Potato

My better half loves sweet potato fried. I love it steamed. He doesn't like steamed and i don't enjoy it fried. So i stopped buying it since i could never get the potatoes fried to his liking and it's left untouched if it is steamed.


Then recently i decided to goggle and see if i can fish out a recipe which both of us can enjoy. I decided to check out at Group Recipes, which is something like a recipe sharing community :) cool huh!! 



I'd hooked up over there recently and have been inspired to put new twists to everyday cooking. As expected there were a couple of sweet potato recipes. I read up most of the recipes and decided to make my dearest hubby some sweet potato for breakfast.

Ingredients:
2 - Big Sweet Potatoes
1/2 + 1/2 Tbsp - Salted Butter

Method:
  • Preheat oven at 200 degree C, grease a baking tray with some oil and set aside
  • Clean and chop up the potatoes into square bite size pieces and divide into two batches
  • Heat a frying pan, once hot put half the tablespoon of butter and fry up the first batch of potatoes for 2-3 minutes on each side, repeat the same for second batch of potatoes using the remaining butter
  • Bake the fried sweet potatoes in the preheated oven for 10 minutes
The top will be crisp but soft and neatly cooked inside. Serve it with a glass of orange juice or light red tea with sugar. 

Needless to say...the Man was thrilled :D. Am not sure what's so great about having sweet potatoes for breakfast but i guess he felt the Love. I also enjoyed the potatoes and so this conflicting chapter in now officially closed :) phew!!

It is never the big things BUT little acts of LOVE that sustain and keep a relationship healthy. Happy weekend!
