Sweet Potato Toast with Topping Ideas

Don't worry about taking the twist tie off the bread this morning because we are switching it out for sweet potatoes. You can make this quickly in the oven and it's the perfect way to use up left over sweet potatoes. Last night we made fries with half of a large sweet potato in our air fryer, and this morning we are slicing them up and popping them in the oven for breakfast. This also makes for a lovely brunch item or a healthy mid-day snack. The best part is that this is grain-free and gluten-free and filled with vitamins, fiber, and antioxidants. If you are seeking to be more intentional about your health, this is your breakfast answer!

Sweet potato toast can also be prepped the night before. Just bake according to the directions below, refrigerate overnight, and warm up in the microwave or in a skillet to get a little crisp back. And what I like most is that you can customize the toppings to suit your cravings. You can scroll down to see all the variations that I think would be delicious.

All this chit chat is making me hungry, let's fire up the oven!

5. Rub each piece with avocado oil or olive oil and sprinkle with a bit of sea salt
