I have just discovered sweet potato toast. Yes you did read it correct I said sweet potato toast. I am trying to eat healthy and cut out processed foods and swap things were I can. Me and the kids love Sweet potatoes are and I have just discovered you can slice and toast in about 5 mins. None of this waiting and hour to bake or roast.
I have made this a few times now and served with melted cheese. I have also served plain with poached eggs and avocado. There is so much you could do with them the list is endless. To make sweet potato cheese on toast you will need a sweet potato and cheese it really is that simple.
You need 1 large sweet potato. Not to big though because the slices have to fit in your toaster.
Slices if you favourite cheese, we like strong good tasting cheddar. You can use whatever is your favourite but a good hard chees for melting is best.
1, You slice the potato into 1 cm slices. Do this buy taking the ends off first so both side of the slice show raw potato.
2, Toast your slices for about 5 mins till soft and tender. You will need to keep and eye on them and keep pushing your toaster down. It took about 5 pushes on mine but every toaster is different just keep checking on the texture.
3, Place your soft potato on a grill or baking tray and add you cheese. You then melt the cheese under the grill for a minute or two till bubbling. I serve with good grind of black pepper on top.
You will be amazed how easy it is but also how tasty as well. The combination of flavours is endless they make great sides with a salad and some meat. You can have thing prepared and just add this as a hot element to your lunch really quick and simple. Just use your imagination and what you have in your fridge of course.
