Back to All Recipes


  • 1 large sweet potato
  • Desired toppings (see ideas below)


Wash and dry sweet potato thoroughly. Using a very sharp chef knife or a mandolin slicer, slice potato in ¼” slices. If the sweet potato is wide in diameter, it may be easiest to slice width-wise, if you are using a skinny potato, slice length-wise. 

Toaster method: Place a slice of sweet potato into each slot of a toaster. Toast on highest setting until both sides of the potato are starting to blister and turn slightly brown. (May take several cycles.) Rotate potato after each cycle to ensure even toasting. Store un-toasted sweet potato slices in the refrigerator for up to four days.

Prep-ahead oven method: Preheat oven to 400°. Arrange sweet potatoes on an oven-proof wire rack. Set wire rack on a baking sheet and put into preheated oven. Bake for 10 minutes or until potatoes start to soften slightly. Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely. Store in the refrigerator for up to four days until ready to serve. When ready to serve, toast in a toaster on highest setting until both sides start to blister and brown. This method shortens the toasting time.

The Sam I Am: Start with a layer of avocado, then top with eggs scrambled with spinach and ham. Garnish with a dash of smoked paprika.
