So, have you heard about this sweet potato toast? It’s a thing… people are actually slicing up their sweet potatoes and dropping them in the toaster. Why? Well because toast is so, um… bready. But as weird as it is, I’ve got to admit that it sounded pretty dang good so I thought I’d give it a try!
I started out by peeling a sweet potato, then I sliced it lengthwise into 1/4″ thick pieces. This yielded about 8 pieces.
Next I dropped two slices into the toaster and cranked that mofo up to the highest setting. I ran it through three cycles, flipping the slices between each one, then I sliced up about 1/3 of a banana.
I topped it off with some peanut butter and the banana slices… and it was really good. I mean honestly, it can’t be bad if it’s topped with pb and bananas… right? To potato was nice and crisp right out of the toaster.
Now I have a few more slices to experiment with. I’m thinking some butter and cinnamon or PB and honey would be pretty good!
And don’t forget the most important part. Make sure to turn your toaster back down to the regular setting… unless you want your smoke alarm going off the next time that your kids decide to make regular toast… with bread. Really kids, toasted bread? That is sooo 2016.
Sweet Potato Toast With Peanut Butter & Banana
Toast... well not really toast, but toasted sweet potato.
- 2 slices of a sweet potato about ¼” thick
- 2 tablespoons peanut butter
- 1/3 banana, sliced
- Wash, peel and slice sweet potato lenghtwise.
- Set toaster to the highest setting and place one slice of sweet potato in each side of the toaster and toast. Repeat 2-3 times flipping slices after each cycle so that the potato slices toast evenly.
- Once toasted, spread 1 tbs of peanut butter on each slice of potato, top with sliced bananas.
