Brioche with Nutella®, smashed sweet potato & pretzels
To bake sweet potato, preheat oven to 180c. Wrap sweet potato in its skin inside aluminium foil and place in the oven on a tray (in case some juice drips out, will save having to scrub your oven). Cook for approximately 1 hour or until a knife or skewer can slide through without resistance. Unwrap sweet potato and cut in half lengthways, then with a dessert spoon, scoop out flesh.
To boil the sweet potato, place the whole sweet potato in a saucepan and cover with cold water. Add approximately 1 teaspoon of salt and place on the stove on a high heat. Once the water is boiling, adjust the heat so the water comes to a simmer. Cook for approximately 15-30 mins or until a knife or skewer can be push through the flesh without resistance. Strain and cut the sweet potato lengthways, then with a dessert spoon, scoop out the flesh.
Heat a non-stick pan or cast iron skillet to a medium hot heat. Add a tablespoon of butter/coconut oil to the pan then the sweet potato flesh with a pinch of sea salt. Cook in pan for approximately 5 mins until the sweet potato begins to caramelise (starts to turn golden).
Toast the brioche until golden brown. Top with smashed sweet potato and drizzle with Nutella. Sprinkle a crushed pretzel on top to serve.
