Sweet Potato Toast
Use instead of regular bread for a lower-carb alternative
- 2-4 large sweet potatoes
- Cooking spray (I use olive oil)
- Salt and pepper (optional)
- Everything but the Bagel Seasoning (optional but tasty!)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.Coat a rimmed cookie sheet with cooking spray or parchment paper.
Wash and peel the sweet potatoes. Cut off the ends. Using a large sharp knife, cut the sweet potato into 1/4"-1/2" slices lengthwise - so you get large slice of "toast". I slice the potato in half usually and then cut the other two sides.
Place the sweet potatoes onto the cookie sheet. Spraying with olive oil cooking spray. Flip and spray the other side. Now, you can add salt and pepper or Everything but the Bagel seasoning if you like. Bake 15-25 minutes. I like mine dark brown and caramelized. The potato should be cooked thoroughly and poke through with a fork quite easily.
Allow to cool on a cooling rack. Eat immediately or store in the fridge for 3-5 days.
**When re-heating, just place it in the toaster oven like a piece of toast. If you have a pop-up toaster, this will work as well but just check to be sure the sweet potato is large enough to pull out easily. Time will depend on your toaster.
