    Baked Sweet Potato with Dill Chèvre

    "The humble sweet potato is always a winner in our house. Next time you feel like baked spuds, switch to sweet potato for a healthier alternative and crank it up a notch by sprinkling some Meredith Dairy Fresh Dill Chevre on there and topping with a dollop of Traditional Greek Yoghurt. Don't forget the other baked spud must haves: garlic butter, bacon, spring onion and lemon pepper." - Tim Bone

    Serves 4 people


    • 4 sweet potatoes
    • 4 tbsp olive oil
    • 125g unsalted butter, softened
    • 1 large clove of garlic
    • ¼ cup parsley, chopped
    • ½ cup spring onions, sliced, green part only
    • 12 rashers of streaky bacon
    • 150 g Meredith Dairy Fresh Dill Chèvre
    • 4 dollops of Meredith Dairy Traditional Greek Sheep Milk Yoghurt
    • salt and lemon pepper


    • Step 1 Preheat oven to 200º C.
    • Step 2 Place each potato onto a lined sheet of aluminum foil. Drizzle each potato with 1 tbsp of olive oil and ½ a tsp of salt and lemon pepper. Wrap and place onto a baking tray. Depending on the size of your potatoes, bake in the oven for 1 - 1 ½ hours or until they are soft when you pierce them with a knife.
    • Step 3 To make the garlic butter, add butter, garlic, parsley, salt and lemon pepper to a bowl and mix with a fork until combined. Leave out on the bench.
    • Step 4 Chop the bacon and cook in a frying pan over medium heat until golden brown and crispy. Remove onto a paper towel lined plate.
    • Step 5 To build your potatoes, carefully unwrap the foil, place onto a serving plate, slice them in half and then in half again, being careful not to cut all the way through, to open out your potato.
    • Step 6 Top with butter, streaky bacon, Goats Cheese Dill Fresh Chevre, spring onion and a nice dollop of the Meredith Dairy Sheep Milk Yogurt. Finish with another sprinkle of the lemon pepper.
