3 Grain-free Sweet Potato Toast Recipes

3 Grain-free Sweet Potato Toast Recipes

Nothing will replace a piece of freshly-baked, crispy yet soft sourdough bread, but crispy yet soft sweet potato toasts topped with thinly sliced top sirloin, herb mayo, salted tomatoes, and fresh greens will definitely curb the carb cravings.

The sweet potato toast trend is not new. All your classic toast toppings have been recipe tested on a browned sweet potato plank; peanut butter, and jelly, butter, avocado to name a few. Why not top with tender, sliced top sirloin for a serving of protein for breakfast, meal-prepped lunch, or an easy dinner?

Sweet potato toasts can be made in multiple ways. As we were experimenting, the toaster oven proved to be the best and easiest way to get that "crispy on the outside and soft on the inside" feel. You can also use a regular pop toaster or roast the sweet potato planks on a sheet tray in the oven.

Everyone's toaster oven, classic toaster, or oven is different. Between Sarah Beth's, recipe developer, kitchen appliances and Pre's test kitchen toasters, we even had to change plans when it came to photoshoot day. Sarah Beth's pop toaster worked the best when she tested it at home and Pre's toaster oven worked the best when it came time to photograph. 

Here is how to make your sweet potato toasts in both a toaster oven and a classic toaster with 3 topping recipes that will satisfy those salty, sweet or starchy cravings. 

Slicing a sweet potato on a cutting board into planks

Instructions for All Sweet Potato Toasts: 

  1. Scrub and peel the sweet potato. Using a large, sharp knife, slice the potato lengthwise into ¼-⅓ inch oval slices. Very lightly spray slices with cooking spray.
  2. For a regular toaster: place potato slices into bread slots and toast on the highest setting until slightly browned on the outside and soft on the inside. Most regular toasters will take 2-3 rounds.
  3. For a toaster oven: place potato slices directly onto the rack and toast on high approximately 10-15 minutes.
