Try this 'mummified' sweet potato, cheese and pancetta tart for Halloween

Halloween is almost upon us, so we’re getting the spirit of things with some eerie recipes.

But October is not only ‘spooky season’, it’s sweet potato season too – which runs from now until March.

And we have a recipe that merges the two for a ghoulish-yet-delicious dinner.

Seasonal Spuds has shared a recipe for a ‘mummified’ sweet potato, cheese and pancetta tart – with a lattice pastry top and edible eyes that resemble a terrifying mummy. 

This particular no-fuss recipe, which serves eight, takes an hour and 20 minutes to prep and 45 minutes to bake. It also uses ready-rolled shortcrust pastry to save time and effort – although bonus points if you want to make yours from scratch.

There’s no denying it’s a fun choice for feeding friends and family this Halloween and it’s a good way for children to get excited about veggies.
