Ingredients

  • 3 large sweet potatoes (cut into wedges)
  • 16 streaks of bacon (or as many as you need)
  • 1 tsp ground cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp ground paprika

For the Chilli Lime Mayo:

  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 tsp yellow mustard
  • 1 tsp salt (I used Pink Himalayan)
  • 240 ml /8 fl. oz light olive oil (or any light oil you choose)
  • Juice of half a lime
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tsp of your favourite chilli hot sauce

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 200C/400F.
  2. Cut your sweet potatoes into wedges and wrap with a streak of bacon each.
  3. Place on a baking tray and sprinkle with cayenne and paprika.
  4. Place in oven for 25 mins or until bacon is slightly burning at the edges (best indicator)
  5. Next, start on your mayo.
  6. Mix your egg yolk, mustard and salt in a bowl.

  7. Using a hand whisk or electric whisk, begin whisking while slowly adding the oil to emulsify.
  8. Once all the oil is poured in, add your lime, vinegar and hot sauce and mix to incorporate.
  9. Serve and enjoy!

Recipe Notes

Sweet potatoes and bacon vary in cooking times so your bacon will need to be slightly burnt at the edges to ensure the sweet potato is cooked through. However, only a little (see pictures as a guide)!
Also if you're worried about your bacon unwrapping then you can stick toothpicks to keep them in place
