This is a simple, yet very tasty main meal or a side to a main meal. For vegetarians, the bacon could be omitted and a bit of salt added for flavour.

I have added sweet potato, however it could also be made without this.

If you can get the cheese -South Cape brand - it is nicer than the Woolworths one pictured below, however I could not find the South Cape one this time.

Preparation Time: 30 minutes
Cooking Time: 20 minutes
Makes: 3-4 servings

Ingredients
650g baby potatoes
75 g sweet potatoes
6 pieces short cut bacon (or 4 rashers)
cup peas
cup milk
120 g Spring onion & Chive cream cheese

Method
Boil the potatoes in salted water for about 15 minutes or until just tender. If using sweet potato add these after a few minutes as they do not take as long to cook.

Add half the bacon and toss until all is well coated. Season to taste -it should not need much more salt if you are using the bacon.
