Sweet Potato Toast {In a Toaster!!}


This sweet potato toast is the best thing since sliced bread- literally!  And it couldn’t be easier.  We just bought some sweet potatoes from Costco in a 10lb bag because we want to eat this every day.

  • High in Vitamin C.  29% of the Daily Value in ONE small sweet potato!!

Sweet Potato Toast directions

Sweet potato toast is so simple. All it is; slices of sweet potato that you then cook in a toaster.  It’s the perfect breakfast that the kids can also make themselves. In fact, toast is the first thing I believe my kids ever learned to make by themselves!   I would have loved it if we were able to start them on THIS toast from the beginning, so it becomes as familiar as regular toast! Haha

All you have to do to make this super easy snack or breakfast is:

  • Step 1 wash sweet potatoes
  • Step 2 slice them
  • Step 3 toast them!
  • Step 4 Top them with your favorite toppings.

Do they cook in the same amount of time as a piece of bread toasts? Or do you have to ‘toast’ them several times? How thick do you slice them?

For info, vitamin A in its own right is not a good thing – overdose of Vit A is extremely toxic (which is why you have to limit your intake during pregnancy). However, beta-carotene is a very good thing, as your body converts it to vitamin A as required. It is a safe way to consume vitamin A without risk of overdose.

Hi Cassandra! You can use either a regular toaster or a toaster oven. The timing varies based on your appliance and also how thick you slice the sweet potato… try around five minutes to start. I hope this helps!

I was looking for a children’s recipe book that was dairy-free. I have a niece and nephew that are both allergic to dairy.

All the children’s cookbooks are pretty much the same with lots of cheese.

I came across your kid-friendly recipes. Do you have a book? Otherwise I was going to print the recipes and make their own cookbook.

Looks yum; if you’ve seen butternut squash toast on whatmomslove.com, would you consider it to be another good line-up for a grain free “bread” substitute.
