Spicy Potato Wedges with Sprouts & Bacon

Sometimes I surprise myself, as this recipe was born from a foodie experiment. I looked in the fridge and thought hmmmm, I wonder?... I love trying new combinations and flovours, some work, some don't, that's the fun of it. On this occasion I was thrilled with the outcome.

It's a perfect dish to share with friends or to watch a favourite film with. I really enjoyed it and I hope you will to ..... please feel free to comment if you try it, I'd love to hear from you!

The Recipe Ingredients

4 small/medium white potatoes

2 cloves of garlic (skin on)

inch piece of ginger sliced (skin on)

2tbsp chilli infused olive oil

1 red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped

1 shallot finely chopped

2 slices back bacon finely chopped

6 or 8 brussel sprouts finely chopped

juice of 1/2 lime

knob of butter

small bunch of asparagus (chopped in half)

little sprinkling of grated cheese


Pour the oil into a baking dish, add the garlic cloves, chopped red chilli and ginger. This is for flavour, you won't be eating these.

Chop the potatoes into decent sized wedges (keep skin on) and add to the dish and toss in the oil mixture till coated well. Add a pinch a sea salt.

Bake the wedges in the oven for 30mins on Gas 6 or 200C turning half way through to ensure they are evenly cooked.

Meanwhile add the bacon to a frying pan and fry till coloured, remove and set aside.

Add a little veg oil (tbsp) to the frying pan and fry the shallots, asparagus and sprouts, turning regularly for 3-4mins. Once they start to soften add a knob of butter to the pan and add the bacon back in and stir for a further minute. Squeeze the lime juice into the pan and stir together.

Remove the wedges from the oven and top with the bacon and spout mixture then finish off with a sprinkling of grated cheese. Serve whilst hot.
