    Sweet Potato Starter

    Just thought i'd share something i loved this weekend, sweet potato battered and deep fried at a chinese restaraunt, sweet potato was so soft and sweet with a lovely thing batter.

    Was one of the strangest combinations i've tried in a while, came with a chive sauce, but found it went delightfully with the peanut satay sauce

    Another good one is make Leonaisse potatoes, but use sweet potatoes instead of normal mashing/roasters and stick some fried bacon in there.
    They just give it a bit of sweetness.

    SWEET POTATOES LYONNAISE

    3 strips bacon
    3/4 c. chopped onion
    1 1/2 lb. sweet potatoes, cooked and peeled
    1 tsp. salt
    From 1/4 to 1 tsp. sugar

    Cut bacon into half-inch pieces with kitchen scissors. Put into a skillet and saute with the onion until done, or about 5 minutes. Add the diced sweet potatoes and seasonings and cook uncovered over medium heat until potatoes are hot through and acquire a golden crispy crust on underside. Serve immediately. 4 servings.

    That sort of thing?...

    Copied and pasted from google link.... Just trying to make sure what Krikkit was suggesting...

    Dunno call me stupid but i'd be tempted to put in some honey instead of the sugar...

    A skillet is a type of frying pan, usually cast iron or steel & requires seasoning. But to all intents & purposes a skillet & frying pan are interchangable. there may not be enough fat in the bacon to fry all this to perfection, so a little butter/oil/fat may be required to achieve the golden crispiness you're looking for.

    As for honey, why not, go for it, but less is more! 1/2 tsp imo is way plenty for a dish like this.

    For me I'd top it off with a blob of sour cream & some watercress garnish.

    Go for some butter in there as well. It just rounds it off nicely, as OiD suggested, the bacon fat doesn't allow perfect frying of all of this.
