Maple and Bacon Sweet Potatoes

 4 fantastic flavours combined to make the perfect side dish to any braai.



4 sweet potatoes
200g bacon
250ml sour cream
maple syrup



Maple and Bacon Sweet Potatoes – Method

Pack 9  briquettes onto the coal grid inside your PotjieKing. Put a couple of firelighters in the bottom section and get that going. When the briquettes are ready, place the braai grid on.

  • Wrap the sweet potatoes in tin foil.
  • Place on the braai grid and cover with the KingDome.
  • Turn every 20 min.
  • Cook until soft then remove from the PotjieKing. The cooking time will be dependant on the size of your potatoes.
  • Braai the bacon, or fry it on the skottle side of your griddle plate.
  • Cut bacon into bits.
  • Cut an ‘X’ into the sweet potato and open it up a bit.
  • Sprinkle in some bacon, add a dollop of sour cream and a spoon (or two…) of maple syrup.


After cooking the potatoes, I braaied the chicken pieces with a good shake of braai sout, under the KingDome. All with 9 briquettes. Not too shabby hey?! Loving the PotjieKing with all this load shedding!
