Made these for a dinner party buffet and they disappeared in a matter of seconds. Seems like a strange mixture of ingredients, but they really are delicious and so easy.

Very tasty, sweet potato and the parma ham are a good combination. I liked the mayo but my boyfriend wasn't keen.

Very easy to make, disappeared very quickly. Used streaky bacon mixed in in half and chorizo on the rest.

I changed it as the only parma ham I could fine was extortionate! I used a slice of chorizo on each one and mixed may and red pesto for the topping. My guests couldn't get enough!

I did like these but not all of my guests did unfortunately. I think they would have been best served warm.

These were very tasty & easy peasy to make. Would be nice served when the potatoes are still warm too.

Excellent! The sweet potato with the parma ham really goes well, was surprised with the result. I cut the sweet potato star shaped with cookie cutters.
