Sweet Potato Toast

As I'm going through the Yahoo! News updates I came across a headline about sweet potato toast. Well, that sparked my interest because, one I love sweet potatoes, and two they are a healthy carb that can be used in various ways. I just never thought about toasting it in the toaster! So, of course I had to click on this article and then do further research. It's like one article mentioned, there's really no "recipe", just tips on toasting the sweet potato and ideas on the various delicious ways you can top your sweet potato toast.

The tips I came across in various articles in regards to toasting the sweet potato were all very similar and it's very simple.



  • Set toaster setting on highest level
  • Slice sweet potatoes about 1/4 inch thick (I noticed they didn't peel the potato, but I'm sure this could be done if you choose)
  • Place in toaster and repeat toast cycle until sweet potato is brown (most tips indicated it took at least two cycles)
  • Top with your choice of toppings

But, if you're like me, I'm asking myself what would be good on sweet potato toast? I mean I can think of a couple ways to top it; but in looking at the various sites there are some creative and tasty ideas! Below are the two sites that I found the most interesting and sharing here. But, for more ideas just Google "sweet potato toast" and you will get even more sites to get some great ideas from!

But, because I'm following a specific meal plan, I will need to wait until I'm able to work this into it; but trust me first chance I get I'm trying it and will let you all know!
