Higgidy Pie and homemade baked sweet potato fries

Autumn is one of my favourite seasons – I love the colours and being able to resume wearing my favourite cardigans and boots. I also love getting back to heartier, warmer meals after a summer of salads. Pie and chips is one of my favs. More recently I have been making baked sweet potato fries instead of normal chips – A) They taste amazing. B) Sweet potatoes are really good for you and they count as one of your 5 a day unlike their normal counterpart.

Recipe type: Side Dish
Ingredients
  • Sweet Potato - allow 1 medium potato per person
  • Oil (I have used olive or sunflower, both work equally well!)
  • Seasonings - I used garlic salt and black pepper - but paprika is also fab.
Instructions
  1. Peel and cut sweet potato into chip sized pieces.
  2. Pop the sweet potato into a bowl and add oil and seasonings. For 500g of sweet potato approx 1 tbsp of oil should be enough.
  3. Stir well then spread in a single layer on a baking tray.
  4. Pop into an oven at 220 degrees C for approx 20 minutes - turn halfway through and keep an eye on them - they can go from nicely brown to burnt in a surprisingly short time!
 

 

These are quick and easy to make, my kids love them and they feel naughty while still remaining at least a bit good for you! When it comes to pie, sometimes I make my own (but usually with shop bought pastry!) and sometimes I like to grab a ready made one for convenience. Higgidy are one of my brands of choice for a shop bought pie, mostly because they have actually put some thought into their vegetarian options, providing a choice of really interesting fillings. Today I opted for the Little Mushroom, Feta and Spinach pie and it was really tasty – love the crunchy crumble topping with oats and golden linseed. Yum!!!

    I love Higgidy pies! I might go so far as to sway they are better than Pie Minister ones! We only get them when they are on a deal but they are SO good x
