3 Delicious Sweet Potato Toast Recipes You Can Use To Replace Bread

The best thing to hit the toaster since sliced bread. Pile freshly warmed slices of sweet potato toast with all of your favorite fixings for a sweet or savory combination that satisfies.

Any Paleo enthusiast knows of the endless possibilities when it comes to sweet potato recipes. From piling with pizza toppings to making French fries, sweet potatoes are one versatile root vegetable. But who would’ve thought to put them in the toaster? Meet: sweet potato toast!

Sweet potatoes are rich in fiber and antioxidants, far outweighing any bread on the market.

Each topping for this veggie toast has its own distinct flavor profile. Just pick one that suits your taste buds and reap the benefits any time of day.

The trickiest part of making sweet potato toast is ensuring that each slice gets toasted long enough to cook it through. No one wants raw, crunchy sweet potato. Every toaster is different, so you may have to play around to find what setting works best. If your toaster has multiple heat settings, I recommend using a higher temperature that will cook the slices longer. I have found that two to three rounds on the level 5 setting worked best for me and resulted in a softened sweet potato with some light charring. While your slices are toasting, you can prep the toppings.

To mimic smoked salmon and cream cheese, we created a cashew spread before topping with salmon and capers. For a more breakfast-forward dish, mashed avocado and a sunny-side up egg make a great on-the-go meal when piled on top of sweet potato toast. For a sweet combo, spread almond butter onto your toasted sweet potato and top with fresh banana slices and a sprinkling of cinnamon.
