Sweet Potato Toast Recipe

Sweet Potato Toast Recipe.

Did you see that Sweet Potato Toast recipe go kinda viral on the interwebs the other day? We did! How fun! So of course we had to give it a merry go.

Guess what, it works!

Obviously sweet potato toast is not like regular toast. It needs a little longer to cook, it will need the highest toaster level at least twice to actually cook it.

To be honest we actually prefer baking our sweet potato ‘toast’ or using a sandwich grill. It cooks it way better. BUT hey, sometimes you’re after a mega quick and easy snack and that is when sweet potato toast cooked in a toaster wins at life. 

The best bit has gotta be the toppings! Duh.

We made a simple basil, avocado pesto sauce, sliced up some tomato, a little cabbage and BOOM we created the best lunch ever.

Feel free to top it with whatever you want. Sliced avocado for the simple delish factor or what about peanut butter and cinnamon for a sweet variety?

There are no topping rules, go crazy.

Let us know what you reckon, if you give it a try we’d love to hear from you. 

Always merrymaking,

Emma + Carla

  1. Hey Girls,
    I’m obsessed with sweet potato atm. So, of course I had to have a go. I love the sandwich press idea. (I’ll def. be doing that next time when I need more than 1 serve) I used the toaster today and it worked a treat and gave me something to mop up my runny egg yolk with. Yay! ????????????

  2. We have a combi steam oven and it’s great in that. If you google Vzug Big Breakfast you can see how to cook mushrooms,eggs, tomatoes and toast all in 12 mins. We substituted the toast for sweet potatoes. Yum!
