“A little something I whipped up as a side for dinner which we all enjoyed.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 3 onions (brown medium)
  • 2 teaspoons oil
  • 1 lb sweet potato (peeled and cubed)
  • 12 tablespoon butter
  • salt and pepper (to taste)


  1. Peel onions, cut in half and finely slice so you have half moon shaped circles.
  2. Put into a medium frypan and drizzle with oil and massage the oil in to break up the half rings.
  3. Cover frypan and cook over a low to moderate heat giving a stir occasionally until a nice golden colour (about 30 to 40 minutes), the longer you take the sweeter the onion will be.
  4. Put sweet potatoes in a pot of cold water and season with a little salt and bring to the boil and cook till tender.
  5. When potatoes are cook, drain and give a good shake, put in butter and mash (I used a potato masher) till you get the consistency you like (I like a slightly lumpy texture).
  6. Add your caramelised onions and mix in well (I just used a fork) and season with salt and pepper to taste.
