Sweet Potato Pie - Yeah it's looking like pie week!!!

This pie was inspired by a pumpkin pie recipe I saw last week on Better Home and Gardens and a roasted sweet potato that a work colleague makes.

The pumpkin pie on the telly was made with skim milk, and low fat pastry. None of that here ;)

The roasted sweet potato is mashed with five spice and a strong tasting cheese. Hmmmm yum!!!

I kind of combined these two ideas to make this pie.
Once again, I used the puff pastry from Aldi.


600gms boiled sweet potato
50gms grated Parmesan
1 quarter (to half) of a freshly grated nutmeg
1 sheet of puff pastry
3 eggs
Salt & Pepper to taste

  1. Pre heat oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
  2. Line a gratin dish with baking paper on the bottom and grease the sides.
  3. Line dish with sheet of puff pastry, cutting off excess.
  4. Mash sweet potato, and mix with cheese, nutmeg, parmesan and salt and pepper.
  5. Mix in eggs, then pour onto puff pastry.
  6. Bake in oven for 30-40 minutes.
  7. Serve with salad.
