Don’t get me wrong, I love me some homemade sourdough. But sweet potato toast opens up a whole new world of flavor combinations and textures.

I like to think of these sweet potato toasts as a “choose your own adventure” breakfast option.

Sweet potatoes are a nutrient-power house.
They’re rich in :
If you can put it on bread, chances are you can put it on sweet potato toast.
Below I’ve listed my top 4, but other ideas include:
A fun twist on traditional avocado toast, sweet potato avocado toast simply involves adding mashed avocado on the sweet potato slices, topping with an egg, and adding a sprinkle of salt and pepper.
I opted for a fried egg, but you could do a poached, soft-boiled, or hard-boiled egg.
This was actually my favorite of all the variations.
I used a lemon hummus, which was really nice against the sweetness of the sweet potato. If you have regular hummus, I’d strongly recommend adding a squeeze of lemon on top.
I’d also love to try this option with a sprinkle of everything bagel seasoning!
Seeing as peanut butter is my favorite food, it was no surprise that this was my second favorite.
If you’re looking for a boost of potassium, look no further than this banana combo! Of course, if you don’t have bananas or don’t like them, you can sub in another fruit. Strawberries or blueberries would work really well.
Almond butter would also be tasty in place of the peanut butter.
For a decent boost of protein, opt for this cottage cheese option.
It’s salty, sweet, and tart all at the same time. However, if you like a little more sweetness, you could also add a drizzle of local honey.
Let me start by saying, if you thought sweet potato toast was just raw sweet potato slices cooked in the toaster, you aren’t alone. But at least in my experience, that method didn’t work very well.
In fact, even after toasting it several times, the sweet potato slice was still way too hard.
So instead, I decided to bake them in the oven, and after just 15 minutes I had sweet potato slices that were tender, but not falling apart. That’s what you want!
So, here’s what you do:
From here you can either top and eat them, or you can store them in the fridge for meal prep throughout the week.
