Glamorous Glutton:
Recipe type: Lunch or Supper
Cuisine: Scandi
Serves: 2 servings
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 15g butter
  • 1 large onion finely diced
  • 2 large Sweet potatoes, diced
  • 160g Smoked pamcetta, diced
  • 3 sprigs thyme
  • 2 egg yolks
  1. Melt the butter and half the olive oil in a pan, add the onions and cook until just turning golden brown. Add the pancetta and the thyme leaves and cook until the pancetta is just starting to crisp.
  2. Remove from the pan and add the remaining olive oil, add the sweet potato in a single layer and leave, undisturbed, over a moderate heat until browned on the underside. If you keep poking at the sweet potato it will break up and may go to mush.
  3. Turn the potato and cook again until the underside has browned, add the pancetta and the onions back into the pan and mix together carefully.
  4. Divide between two bowls and make a dip in the centre and gently add the egg to the centre of the dish, serve immediately and whisk the egg into the sweet potato
