Sweet Potato Toast

A fast and easy #whole30breakfast that only costs under $2. I love sweet potato toasts. Easy to make and even easier when you make them in bulk and freeze, then just toast or airfry the morning of. Throw in a batch of hard boiled eggs you pre-made (or buy the hard boiled eggs in pre-cooked packs from Costco or Sam’s Club), and this just became your new favorite 5-minute breakfast.

I love sweet potato toasts topped with smashed avocado, sliced hard boiled egg, and salt + Everything Bagel Seasoning. PS – Even Walmart now sells the Everything Bagel seasoning! I had three this morning for a whopping total of $1.25. Round it out with some roasted veggies and voila! Also delicious – sweet potato toast + nut butter + banana, yum!

Some stores sell Caulipowered brand of frozen sweet potato toast slices, which is super convenient. But they cost $6-8/bag depending on the store. You can easily make the same amount for $2 with only 10 minutes of prep time.

Trust me, it’s time to get on the sweet potato train!

Sweet Potato Toast

Author Autumn @wholefoodfor7

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds sweet potatoes
  • olive or avocado oil to coat
  • sprinkle salt

Instructions

  1. If using the oven, preheat to 425 degrees.

  2. Cut off the ends of the sweet potato. Then stand the sweet potato up on it's end and cut in half length-wise. Take one of the halves and cut it into long slices to desired width (I usually aim for a 1/4 of an inch, but it's not an exact science). Try to keep slices uniform in width so they will cook evenly.

  3. Lightly toss or brush slices of sweet potato with oil on both sides. Just a little, don't drown the potato in oil, or your toast will be soggy.

  4. If baking, line a baking sheet with parchment and lay out potato slices in a single layer. Bake for 10 minutes at 425, until tender, then broil on each side for 5 minutes (flipping to get both sides)

  5. If airfrying cook at 375 for 10 minutes (or at 325 if you have an airfryer like mine that runs hot). Make sure they are in a single layer, and flip once.

  6. Freeze in a single layer then store in the freezer in a sealed bag or container for up to 3 months. Toast or airfry to reheat.

    I always keep a bag of these in the freezer. Pop them in the toaster oven for easy breakfasts with nut butter or eggs on top!

    I make these in the air fryer and always have a batch in the freezer. So quick and easy! We usually use them for egg sandwiches.

    My kids and I love these. They all really like hard-boiled eggs, and this is an easy way to make it a complete meal. We also have these for lunch sometimes, they’re not just for breakfast over here.

    Just don’t call it TOAST! Toast was in my brain so I couldn’t fall in love with the texture or maybe I did something wrong. I tried it with bacon, and eggs. However, my favorite was with ghee and salt.

    • Lol, that’s fair – it’s definitely a different texture. Maybe Sweet Potato sliders?
