Cheesy sweet potato & kale brunch

As the snow fell on Yumblog Cottage thoughts turned to sledging and comfort food.

Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 45 – 55 minutes
Serves: 2
Skill level: easy


  • floury potatoes – 300g
  • sweet potato – 300g
  • kale – chopped – 150g
  • 2 spring onions – finely chopped
  • butter – 25g
  • single cream – 50ml
  • strong cheddar – grated – 25g

Preheat your oven to 190c/gas mark 5.

Boil the potato and sweet potato in salted water until tender.

Meanwhile fry the onion and kale in half the butter for 5 minutes. You want them soft but not overcooked.

Mash the potatoes with the remaining butter and cream. Season to taste.

Stir in the kale and onions, spoon into a baking dish and sprinkle with cheese.

Bake in the oven for 20 – 25 minutes until golden brown and bubbling.

Serve with a healthy pouring of Oxford sauce (optional)

Verdict: Perfect for weekend brunching and as comforting as a hug from a needy Koala.

Drink: A mug of Yorkshire’s finest and strongest.

Entertainment: Saturday Guardian – grown-up paper for her, magazine for him, Guide for child.
