  • 1 small sweet potato (around 6 oz/1 cup)
  • Water , enough to cover the potatoes
  • 2 peppers , chopped
  • 1 tablespoon red onion , chopped
  • 2 tablespoons grated cheese
  • A pinch of salt and pepper
  • 2 teaspoon rosemary , fresh or dried
  • ¼ tablespoons (½ oz/15g) Butter
  1. Peel and chop small cubes of sweet potato (the smaller you cut the pieces the faster the potato will cook).
  2. Add into a large microwave safe mug and cover totally with cold water. Use a large mug as the water might bubble up in the microwave.
  3. Cook for 3-4 minutes in the microwave until it is tender. It will turn an orange color when done. (Check the potatoes halfway and stir so it doesn’t get too hot and overspill)
  4. Drain off the water and add in the peppers, onion, cheese, butter, rosemary, salt and pepper and mix everything well together.
  5. Put back in the microwave and heat these ingredients together for another 40 seconds until hot and the cheese melts.
  6. Enjoy a quick and filling breakfast!!!
