Sweet Potato Toast 5-Ways


How to make sweet potato toast plus five different topping combinations.


I might be a little late on the sweet potato toast (SPT) train but I am so glad I got on! Here is a From the Roots spin on this trendy recipe that is circulating the web.

Sweet potato toast is a great bread substitute to get in the added nutrition of vitamin A and fiber. It’s also nice for people who are gluten intolerant, tired of eating regular toast or wanting a little more fiber in their diet. The sweet potato slices cook evenly in the toaster and can hold up toppings really well. The subtle sweetness in the sweet potato compliments most flavor combinations - like the ones that are featured here!

Most people cook the sweet potato by simply cutting both ends off and slicing lengthwise about ¼ inch thick. You can cook them in the toaster by setting the toaster on high and then flip them twice. You can also set your oven to 350 degrees and bake 15-20 minutes per side until the sweet potato is tender and cooked through.

Now that your sweet potato is cooked to perfection - let’s get to the fun part - the toppings!
