If you’re looking for a twist on your typical breakfast, look no further, because these sweet potato toasts are the perfect option! They may take a little longer to cook, but we think it’s worth it every once in a while because they truly are tasty. And customizable! Anything you like to put on your bread toast at breakfast would work on these. Try topping with nut butter and granola, yogurt and berries, or even avocado! Or, try topping each slice with something different and find your favorite combination.

Of course, there is nothing wrong with using bread for your toast, but you might want to try something different some mornings. And this is the perfect alternative if that’s what you’re looking for! Or, maybe you have a gluten intolerance, and you don’t like gluten-free breads, so this is a perfect option for you, too! If you want to prepare them ahead of time, you might try partially cooking them and then freezing them until you’re ready to use them. It’s a similar idea to frozen french fries. You can even find frozen sweet potato toasts in the freezer aisle at the grocery store if you’d like.

While we love sweet potato toasts in the morning, some people don’t think sweet potato belongs at breakfast. So, if this sounds like you, and you’d prefer sweet potatoes at another meal, you could try these sweet potato nachos. Or combine the two recipes and make sweet potato breakfast nachos!
