  • Start hard-boiling the eggs. They’ll need about 12 minutes in boiling water. Once done, cool them in cold water.
  • While that’s going on, peel and slice the sweet potatoes thinly.
  • Finely chop the onions and garlic, and add with the sweet potato slices to a mixing bowl.
  • Salt it to taste, it will take up quite a lot of salt.
  • Peel and cut the hard boiled eggs to round slices. This is the easiest way.
  • Give the sour cream a good stir to make it creamier.
  • Take an oven proof casserole dish and layer half of the onion and sweet potato mix across the bottom.
  • Layer all the slices of egg on top next.
  • Sprinkle with a little more salt, and half the pepper and paprika.
  • Put a layer of sour cream (in dollops) on the top of every egg slice.
  • Layer over the rest of the sweet potato and onion mix.
  • Spread out the remaining sour cream over the top and finish by adding the rest of the pepper and paprika.
  • Add the lid (or cover with foil) and bake at 200°C/390°C for 40 mins.
  • Take off the lid or the foil, then bake for another 30 mins.
  • Done! Let cool slightly, and serve. It’s great alone or with a fresh salad on the side.
