This time of year we eat lots of sweet potato, butternut squash and pumpkin due to the change in seasons. I love all three but if I had to pick one then I would go for sweet potato as it is very versatile.

When I lived at home my mum would make a sweet potato bake, which was the only time we ever really had sweet potato. Dean and I very often have them as wedges or mash as again it’s a healthier option and they’re classed as one of your five a day unlike normal potato.

I wanted to do a recipe with sweet potato and came up with these simple boats which are great for the whole family. When I lived at home or on my own I used to have a jacket potato with cheese, bacon and onion at least once a week and loved it! 😂

I’d like to think that my cooking skills have come quite far since then and you’ll be happy to know I don’t have them that often any more! So this is a little twist on my jacket potato growing up.

The sour cream works really well with the sweet potato boats giving it a bit more of a saucy filling and really compliments all the other ingredients, especially the smoky bacon. You can fill your boats with all sorts of ingredients like chorizo, peppers, pancetta, mushrooms and top with all different cheeses like mozzarella, stilton, smoked cheese and many more.
