Yields: 4 - 6 servings
6 potatoes (these can be white or sweet potatoes or mixture)
1 chorizo thinly sliced
6 shortcut bacon slices cut into 6
1/4 cup golden syrup
1 tablespoon American mustard (or mustard to suit)
1Put slits all along your potatoes without cutting all the way through (see notes).
2In every 2nd slit alternate between chorizo slices and bacon.
3Place stuffed potatoes into slow cooker.
4In a bowl mix golden syrup and mustard, taste and adjust to suit your likes.
5Spoon syrup mixture over potatoes.
6Season with salt & pepper.
7Cook on high 2 1/2 hours basting every 30 minutes.
9Sit your potato between 2 wooden spoons when doing slits, this is your guide so you don't cut all the way.
10The more slits you have the more flexible your potato will be.
11Do not overload your potatoes to avoid breaking, this is why only every 2nd slit is used. Needs to be cooked on high to get the colour and for it to become sticky, you don't get same results cooking on low. Basting gives you the even colour.
12Cooked in Breville 7L, times vary per slow cooker.
