There’s nothing quite as satisfying as warm toast during the fall months. The crunch of the bread, creamy toppings, and option to add a runny egg yolk… you get the picture, it’s totally delicious and keeps you feeling satisfied.

This savory and sweet breakfast, lunch or snack has delicious textural and taste components. The key to this recipe is achieving the perfect balance between the crunch of the exterior sweet potato and chew of the interior flesh. After a lot of practice, we think we nailed it!
Why we love this stellar smart food:
The sweet potato is an excellent source of vitamins A,C, and B2. In addition, this tuber is one of the best known sources for lutein. Sweet potatoes can have purple or orange flesh; purple varieties are known to have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties and the orange varieties are unsurpassed as a source of beta-carotene.
