Breakfast Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

You may have heard of sweet potato toast. It’s a simple and easy recipe to make ”toasts” with various toppings. All you need to do is cut a sweet potato in slices and roast or toast it. But I wanted this idea to be easier and faster. So I came up with these breakfast stuffed sweet potatoes. They are fun to make and so delicious!

There are quite a lot of products that we only seem to use in savory recipes, but most of them are great for a sweet (breakfast) recipe too. Think of avocados for a chocolate mousse or what about buckwheat for breakfast? Since I’m slightly sweet potato obsessed, I decided to create these simple Breakfast Stuffed Sweet Potatoes.

Sweet potatoes are not just for a savory lunch or dinner. They can be a real treat when complemented by other sweet flavors such as bananas and a sweetener. I find it delicious to accent the sweetness with some crunchiness such as with walnuts.

Expert Tips

Choose the right sweet potato
Make sure to select a medium-sized sweet potato that is firm and free of bruises or blemishes. Look for sweet potatoes with smooth, unblemished skin and a uniform shape.

Adjust the baking time
The cooking time may vary depending on the size of the sweet potato. Check the sweet potato after 20 minutes, but it may take up to 40 minutes to cook thoroughly.

Use high-quality ingredients
Select high-quality ingredients such as fresh, ripe bananas, organic nut butter, fresh walnuts, and pure maple syrup for the best flavor.

Experiment with different toppings
Don’t be afraid to experiment with different toppings to customize the recipe to your taste. Try adding sliced strawberries, coconut flakes, chia seeds, or other nuts.

Garnish with fresh herbs
Top the dish with fresh herbs such as mint or cilantro for an added burst of flavor and freshness.

Add protein
If you’re looking to add more protein to the dish, you can mix in a scoop of protein powder or add a spoonful of soy yogurt.

Make ahead
You can roast the sweet potatoes ahead of time and store them in the fridge for up to 5 days. When you’re ready to serve, reheat the sweet potato in the oven or microwave and add your toppings.
