SWEET POTATOES

Ingredients
2 pc sweet potatoes

Method: Bake 1-2 sweet potatoes at 400 F for about 1 ½ hours, or until sweet potato is fully cooked. Once it is cool enough to handle, peel the skin off and slice into ½ inch-thick slices.

3g garlic
100g kew pie mayo

Quarter red onions, removing the inner core. Slice them thin. Place them in a bowl and mix with fresh lime juice, chopped cilantro, oil and salt to taste. The resulting mix should be nice and wet.

FINAL ASSEMBLE

Toast the potato bread with some butter in a warm pan and heat through in the oven. Spread spicy mayo on the bread. Fry the pork confit slices and the sweet potato slices at 350 F until both are golden brown. Place the pork and sweet potato on the bread, topping them with the salsa criolla. ¡Feliz Año Nuevo!
