Sweet Potato Nachos

Sweet Potato Nachos
Who needs sandwiches when you can have sweet potato nachos, amigos!!
A delicious grain-free addition to the school or work lunchbox.


Ingredients

1 medium Sweet Potato - sliced
Olive Oil
1 rasher of Bacon - diced
1/2 cup Cheese of your choice - shredded
1 dollop Sour Cream
Shallots - chopped


Instructions

Preheat oven to 200°C.
Line a baking tray with baking paper and place slices of sweet potato in a single layer on the paper. Drizzle with olive oil. You can also place the bacon pieces on the same tray and off to one side. Bake in the oven until both are cooked through and a bit crunchy. Takes around 20-25 minutes. Remove from oven.
Layering - Using the same tray, place the sweet potato slices together with their edges slightly overlapping in a square about the size of a large slice of bread. Next sprinkle some of the bacon bits followed by some shredded cheese. Repeat this layer another 2 times making sure your final ingredient is the cheese.
Place the tray back in the oven for around 10 minutes or until the cheese has melted.
Serve with a dollop of sour cream and a sprinkling of chopped shallots.
Serves 1



Additional Notes

For a cleaner lunchbox, keep the sour cream in a separate little container when sending this to school.
Keep cool in an insulated lunchbox with a small ice pack.
Add some home-made guacamole to increase your daily healthy fat intake and for some extra flavour.
