Whether you eat them baked, mashed or in the form of fries, sweet potatoes are not only so dang delicious, but also good for you. Which is why a new snack idea involving the tasty taters is taking the internet by storm: sweet potato toast.
Who needs bread, anyway? Plus, this “toast” is super easy to make. Slice a sweet potato into thin slices, around 1/4 inch thick. Then, pop your slices in a toaster! It’s that simple.
Depending on your taste, you may want to toast your slices a few times so that the potato cooks all the way through. When you can easily put a fork through your slice, you know that the toast is ready. Then comes the fun part: the toppings!
Whether you want to keep it simple with butter and salt, or go crazy – the possibilities are endless. For example, add peanut butter, bananas and cinnamon for a sweet and filling breakfast treat.
Another great breakfast option is topping your toast with yogurt and fruit.
However, don’t just limit this toast to breakfast. Swap out different toppings to adapt the snack to your lunch or dinner tastes as well. If you love hot sauce, this avocado-packed example is definitely one to try.
Chopped dates, almond butter and coconut butter is another delicious variation.
If you’re feeling fancy, you can top your toast with with ricotta and onion.
Hungry yet? If not, you’re about to be. Try not to drool too much while looking at this next toast, which is topped with bacon and egg.
The great thing about sweet potatoes is that they pair well with a ton of different foods and you can eat them any time of the day. So, get creative!
Will sweet potato toast dethrone avocado toast as the trendiest snack food? At this point, it’s tough to say. That being said, I think the sweet potato can definitely give bread a run for its money.
