I’m low-key obsessed with sweet potato toast, friends. If you’ve never heard of it before, sweet potato toast isn’t some new fancy sweet potato-infused bread you get at your local natural foods store—it’s literally just cooked planks of sweet potatoes that you use in place of bread in your favorite toast combinations.
It’s so beautifully simple, and it adds so much awesome flavor, texture, and nutrition to your daily dose of avocado toast. And if you happen to struggle to digest grains, it’s a wonderful gluten-free, grain-free alternative to sandwich bread.
Most sweet potato toast recipes will tell you to simply slice your sweet potatoes into planks, and then plop them in the toaster for a few rounds.
I have to tell you, I have never had success with this method. I don’t know what kind of magic toaster people have that I don’t, but using this method always gives me toast that is burnt and crispy on the edges and uncooked in the middle. And it takes FOR-EVER.
For me, I’ve had the best luck par-baking (AKA: precooking) my sweet potato planks in the oven, and then stashing them in the fridge until I’m ready to toast. I do this during my weekly meal prep session, so the planks are ready to go whenever I want them.
When it’s time to make my toast, I take the planks from the fridge and pop them right in my toaster for one round of toasting. This always produces a nice, sturdy piece of sweet potato that is cooked all the way through and just begging to be topped with all kinds of deliciousness!
When it comes to toppings, basically anything that you would put on a regular piece of toast works here, too! Here are four of my favorite combos—two sweet and two savory—to get you started.
These are just a handful of ideas—your own creativity is the only limit to what you can put on top of sweet potato toast! Make sure you share your favorite combos with the hashtag #wholefully on Instagram so we can see all the goodness you’re making. Enjoy!
Sweet potato toast isn’t some fancy bread made out of sweet potato puree—it’s actual planks of sweet potato that take the place of bread in your favorite breakfast combos. It’s a great way to swap in some healthy veggies in place of your daily bread, and it’s super easy to prep ahead. Here are four of our favorite ways to serve it up, plus, our ultimate tips for getting good, sturdy slices.
