How to make sweet potato toast

Making sweet potato toast is easy. Trim the ends off of a large sweet potato. Then slice the potato into 1/4 inch to 1/2 inch slices. We prefer 1/2 inch slices but you can slice them thinner, if desired. Cook the sweet potato slices in an oven or toaster.

Toast sweet potatoes

To toast the sweet potato slices in a toaster, you need to toast them a few times until they are cooked through. Toast three to five times on a medium setting, or until the sweet potato is cooked through. Or, you can bake them in the oven and then reheat in the toaster. To reheat, simply pop them in the toaster, top and enjoy!

To make baked sweet potato toast

Baking the slices in the oven is easy! Arrange the sweet potato slices on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. No oil is needed. Bake at 400°F for 20 minutes or until the sweet potato is soft and tender. You should be able to easily pierce it with a fork.

Sweet potato toast toppings

You can use any of your favorite toast toppings on sweet potato toast. Below are a few of our favorite topping combinations.

  1. Nut butter, sliced apples, drizzle of honey and toasted pecans
  2. Smashed avocado with lime juice, cilantro and red pepper flakes
  3. Sautéed organicgirl baby spinach with fried egg on top plus black pepper or red pepper flakes
  4. Sautéed organicgirl I heart baby kale with garlic, prosciutto and shredded parmesan cheese
  5. Cream cheese, sliced strawberries and bananas, sprinkle of coconut or chia seeds or other topping
