Sweet Potato Toast

Alright, the need to be creative and frugal was a must this morning.  The fridge and pantry were pretty bare and I didn’t get a pay check until this afternoon.  I had lots of odds and ends going on and I was trying to pull all of them together for a somewhat decent meal.  It ended up being a combination of a sweet potato, an avocado and some eggs.  Put it together and you get..sweet potato toast topped with diced avocado and a scrambled egg.  Yes, yes I know it’s oh so fancy.  I must say this though; don’t knock it until you try it.

Overall Cost: $2.50


-1 small sweet potato (.70 cents)

-1 small avocado (.80 cents)

-2 eggs ($1.00)


1. Slice sweet potato into even, medium sized slices


2. Put the slices through the toaster 2 or 3 times depending on your preference

3.  While the sweet potatoes are toasting, slice/dice the avocado and scramble the eggs


4. Layer it all together and enjoy!


Overall Thoughts:

One word: yum.  I would have never thought of a sweet potato as a substitute for bread, but I must say it will be done more often.  Sweet potatoes are a great way to pack in fiber and other essential nutrients into a meal!  Top that with eggs and avocado and you’ll be full with energy for the morning.  For the future, I am going to be experimenting with other toppings like peanut butter, fruit and more!  Until then.

Happy Cooking!
