Butternut, Sweet Potato and Spinach Bake

Now I do love a good frying pan, saucepan or any other kind of pan for that matter. 

Just recently I've been trying out the Dura Forge range of frying pans from Prestige which also includes an excellent grill pan.

When looking at what I call a good pan they really get top marks from me if they can also go into the oven and the Dura Forge range can; so my Butternut, Sweet Potato and Spinach Bake started on the hob and then got popped into the oven to bake!

The pans are oven safe up to 180°C/350°F or Gas 4 which makes for easier and faster cooking since there's no need to change pans halfway through the recipe. That's not all as it also means less to wash up 😉

The interior of the pans have reinforced ridges which provides a great non-stick surface and makes them easy to clean. As you can see from my picture the frying pan hardly looked like it'd had food in it when I dished out some of the butternut bake - brilliant.

Dura Forge pans have a 3D stainless steel base which resists warping and is suitable for all hobs including induction. The forges body provides strength and thickness where needed which makes for optimal cooking performance.

The range is dishwasher safe although I doubt very much you would have to put them in a dishwasher as they really are so easy to clean.

Prestige Dura Forge

Dura Forge frying pans are available in 20cm, 25cm and 30cm and the square grill pan is 28cm so there's a perfect size for everyone.

The grill pan gives excellent grill lines which I'll show in another post. To make my recipe that serves two I used the 25cm pan which was the perfect size.

Yield: 2

Butternut Sweet Potato and Spinach Bake

prep time: 5 minscook time: 55 minstotal time: 60 mins


Frylight spray or vegetable oil
400g mixture of butternut and sweet potatoes cut into 5mm thin slices
a handful of baby leaf spinach 
160ml whole milk
1 egg - free range of course
a pinch of nutmeg
60g Cheddar cheese - grated
sea salt and pepper to taste


Preheat your oven to 180°C/350°F or Gas 4 

Spray your pan with Frylight or add a little oil. Heat and add in the butternut and sweet potato and cook over a low-medium heat whilst stirring to ensure they don't burn. It will take about 10-15 minutes until they are golden and almost tender; they will cook fully when in the oven.

Season with a little salt and pepper, stir and leave to cool for about 10 minutes before continuing otherwise the egg mix will curdle. *If you don't have a pan that can go into the oven you will need to transfer the butternut and potatoes to a suitably sized oven-proof dish.

Meanwhile, put the milk and egg into a jug along with a pinch of nutmeg and a pinch of salt and whisk lightly to mix. 

Now put the spinach on top of the butternut and pour over the milk and egg mixture and top with the cheese. Cover with kitchen foil and pop into the oven on the middle shelf to cook for 25 minutes.

Remove the foil and pop it back in to cook for a further 10 minutes by which time everything should be nicely cooked through and the cheese is bubbling. 

Serve with a salad or fresh crusty bread.
