Method

Before You Begin

Prepare your ingredients & cooking utensils: Use a chopping board and lay all the ingredients out. Take out any “Pantry Items”. Preheat your oven to 220°C.

Washing Instruction

Wash your hands, green peppers and cherry tomatoes well. Rinse your wild rocket thoroughly and drain on paper towel.

Gino's Tip

It's best to use the back end of a spoon or a silicone spatula to spread your cheese sauce over the potatoes.

Step 1 - Sweet Potato and Green Pepper Dauphine

Toss your sweet potato roundels in a large mixing bowl along with a drizzle of olive oil, salt and pepper. Flatpack onto an oven tray (reserve your large mixing bowl for your green peppers) add a few dashes of water and pop into the oven for 10 minutes. Toss your green pepper chunks in your large mixing bowl with a drizzle of olive oil, salt and pepper. Scatter onto a separate oven tray and pop into the oven for 6-8 minutes until tender. After the 10 minutes, your sweet potatoes should be just about tender and your green peppers should be done roasting, layer your sweet potatoes and green pepper in a small/medium baking dish (using a thin egg lifter would help transfer your sweet potato) and cover with your DailyDish Low Carb Cheese Sauce - See Gino's Tip. Sprinkle over your grated mozzarella, pop back into the oven for 5-6 minutes until your sauce is bubbly and your cheese has gratinated.

Step 2 - Crispy Bacon

While your Dauphine is baking, heat a large frying pan over med-high heat and crisp your bacon for 2 minutes on each side and drain on paper towel. Start with your pan on high heat and then reduce your temperature to medium to crisp, its best to do them in batches and be sure to regulate your heat for each batch.

Step 3 - Balsamic Dressing

Whisk your balsamic vinegar with a few glugs of olive oil and season with salt and pepper. A basic guide to any dressing is 1 part vinegar/acid to 3 parts oil.

To Serve

Give your large mixing bowl a quick clean, mix your halved cherry tomatoes and wild rocket together and dress with your balsamic dressing. Divide your sweet potato and green pepper dauphine amongst your servings, top with your dressed salad and crispy bacon.
