Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Wash and dry the sweet potato. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
Using a chef knife, slice the sweet potato lengthwise into even slices, about 1/4-inch thick, or into rounds.
Place the sweet potato slices on the parchment paper-lined baking sheet and bake for 25 minutes or until the portions are lightly toasted. Enjoy with your favorite sweet and savory toppings.
Yep, sure can! Sweet potato slices can go directly in the toaster, much like regular toast. However, if using a conventional toaster instead of a toaster oven, be prepared to babysit your breakfast, re-toasting your slices until they're thoroughly toasted.
While many sweet potato toast recipes call for the slices to be toasted directly in the toaster, toasting takes much longer than baking. This is not exactly ideal for the morning rush. We recommend placing them in the oven. However, reheating leftover slices of sweet potato toast in the toaster is the best way to warm them, so they don't become soggy in the microwave.
Admittedly, sweet potato is not the easiest veggie to slice. Some find slicing the spud to desired thinness quite a challenge, even with the sharpest knives. To make cutting the sweet potato a more manageable task, simply microwave the sweet potato for a minute or two. The heat softens the potato and makes it much easier to slice.
It's entirely up to you! To save time, you can leave the peel on or decide to remove the peel if you prefer. Don't forget to give the sweet potatoes a good scrub with a vegetable brush before preparing them. No one wants a heaping helping of dirt in their breakfast dish.
Both sweet potatoes and whole wheat are considered healthy foods packed with essential vitamins and minerals. Sweet potato toast is a wholesome alternative for when regular toast gets, well, boring. Sweet potato toast is also an excellent option for those seeking a healthy gluten-free breakfast.
