Sweet Potato what???!!! Yes. Sweet Potato Toast. You read it correctly. You slice sweet potatoes lengthwise and put the slices in the toaster! This is no joke.

If you are looking for a delicious, healthier breakfast option, look no further. This Sweet Potato Toast with Apples, Bacon and Blue Cheese will explode with flavor in your mouth?
After enjoying all the wonderful flavors in this Sweet Potato Toast with Apples, Bacon and Blue Cheese, you can rest easy because it is gluten-free, and fits into most diets. If you are looking for dairy-free, then just leave off the gorgonzola cheese.
But to me, the combination of flavors will make you go WOW!!!
In my recipe, I do cheat a little and partially bake the sweet potato slices before toasting them. Otherwise, you might have to toast them several times in the toaster to get them cooked.
The key is to not slice them too thick. Keep them thin, approximately 1/4 inch wide.
For the toppings, I cook the chopped bacon in a skillet on top of the stove and then add the chopped apples and onions together and cook together with the bacon. Spoon that mixture on top of the sweet potato toasts and then sprinkle crumbled gorgonzola over the top. I get giddy thinking about this flavor combination.
There really are no more words to describe this wonderful creation. You just have to try it for yourself. Then you will be hooked!
