I have been getting so many questions about how I make my sweet potato toast so I thought it was finally time to share the recipe with you all!
But before we get to the details, I have a confession. I used to HATE sweet potatoes. I have this vivid memory of being at my great-grandmother’s house when I was in first grade and she served yams. I don’t think I’d ever even seen them before that moment but they just looked and sounded so disgusting to me that I instantly wrote them off.
But then all of a sudden, a few years ago, sweet potato fries were popping up everywhere. I always hated the ones at restaurants because they were still fried and really upset my stomach, and honestly, didn’t taste good to me. So on a whim, I decided to try making my own. And then I was making sweet potato fries almost every other night for dinner.
But it wasn’t until I moved to San Francisco (and had my own kitchen for the first time in a few months) that I decided to start making sweet potatoes in different forms. Ever since the first time I made sweet potato toast, I’ve been adding sweet potatoes to just about every single meal. They’re just so delicious and versatile!
So now the real reason you’re here—let’s talk about how to make sweet potato toast!
First things first, we have to talk about the actual sweet potatoes themselves because this is a case where size (and shape) really does matter. You want a fat sweet potato that may be kind of rectangular, not a long skinny one that looks similar to a zucchini or cucumber. Because photos are easier, look for ones like this, NOT this. Bonus points if it has a side that’s somewhat flat.
Also, I’ve started using #SbySToast so that you can easily see all of my toast creations in one place! So if you recreate this recipe share some photos using #SbySToast and be sure to tag me! I’ll be sharing all of them on my Instagram story.
Okay so now that that’s squared away, here’s how to make sweet potato toast five ways. Better yet, all of these options are dairy and gluten-free!
