Sweet Potato Toasts: 3 Ways!

Start your morning off right with Sweet Potato Toasts: 3 Ways! Made with roasted sweet potatoes and the topping of your choice!

We all know our avocado toast game is strong. 

Hasn’t this famous toast been on the breakfast/snack circuit for at least four years? I honestly think avocado toast hit its peak when it became the Christmas ornament of 2017. Would you agree? 

Don’t worry I’m still on the avocado toast bandwagon. But have you ever thought to yourself, is there another toast out there for me? Between the keto, low-carb, plant-based, gluten free craze you would think the options would be endless. 

Well, I’m happy to report that the next “toast” craze actually comes via a starchy, root vegetable known as the sweet potato. I love sweet potatoes. Okay, I should pump the breaks. I love roasted sweet potatoes. For the life of me, I cannot eat mashed sweet potatoes. The texture makes me gag. Is that weird?

So when I heard sweet potato toasts were next up on the breakfast/snack circuit I actually got excited. There’s something about crispy sweet potato edges that make me giddy. Plus, let’s not forget about the toppings. BUT! Before talk about that we need to establish some foundation. 

First, you can make sweet potato toasts in YOUR TOASTER. Kind of blind blowing, yeah? If you cut the slices a 1/4-inch and place them in the toaster plan on pushy that lovely leveler about four to five times. This way the sweet potatoes don’t burn. 

Second, if you don’t want to stand by your toaster all morning, I highly suggest prepping your toasts the night before. Cut them a 1/2-inch thick, roast them for 20 minutes in the oven at 400 degrees and then the next morning toast them once! 

Once you’ve got the sweet potato toasted start your topping engines. I’ve got Sweet Potato Toasts: 3 Ways today: 1) Everything Egg Avocado Toast 2) Hummus with Cucumber Toast and 3) Peanut Butter and Banana Toast!

The options are endless when it comes to building your breakfast situation. So, what do you think? Ready to make things extra toasty? Thought so.
