After having made the best dinner
the other night, I still had some of this amazing Bacon Butter left over...
To which I promptly took care of the following night!
It was Dinner For One the next evening as Mr M had a work dinner, so I didn't want to go to terribly much trouble just for my dinner. I baked a chicken breast, made sweet potato wedges and tossed a simple beetroot & semi-dried tomatoes salad, and topped the chicken with the bacon butter.
The sweet potato wedges are really easy to make too! Peel and slice thickly the sweet potatoes. Pour a dash of oil in a baking tray and heat in the oven for 5 minutes. Spread the sweet potato out on the tray and bake for 30 minutes, or until crispy on the ends and soft and tender in the middle. Season with salt and chopped parsley, or keep a la naturale if you are serving them to your baby (who, absolutely loves them!). I followed the recipe from
Simple. But thanks to the flavour-packed butter, it was tasty and filling. For a meal that took 10 minutes to prepare, that baked in the oven for 30 minutes whilst I fed Baby M, it was as though I had been slaving away all afternoon creating dinner for myself!
And sometimes isn't that the best kind of meal?!
