Loaded Sweet Potato Avocado Toast

Loaded Sweet Potato Avocado Toast

I know – avocado toast is SO over, and even if it weren’t, you don’t need a recipe for it. This trend might be on it’s way out, but you’ll still find me (and pretty much everyone else on Instagram) happily smashing & snapping away.

I usually keep mine simple – avocado, lemon, salt, pepper, and a sprinkle of hemp seeds. It’s a perfect combo that doesn’t need to be messed with, but since this was “dinner toast” for us one night last week, I thought I’d get a little fancier with the toppings. (Also, Jack is still claiming that he doesn’t like avocado, but if I hide it a little, no complaints).

Loaded Sweet Potato Avocado Toast ingredients

This chart of ingredients looks a little fussy, but most of these are pantry staples and items that I happened to have on hand. For example, the adobo sauce (our favorite addition here) comes from a leftover can of chipotles that I had previously opened for this chili recipe. So feel free to use and re-use whatever you like. Send me your winning combos and, together, let’s keep this trend alive!

    I am obsessed with avocado toast and eat it almost daily. I like avocado mashed with olive oil, garlic salt, and a bit of fresh lemon juice. I top it with chocolate cherry tomatoes and chives and then drizzle some siracha on top.

  7. Avocado toast could never be over! I never get tired of seeing new, unique ways to make a (now) classic combo into something interesting. Looks delicious.

  8. I need to stop reading your recipes when I’m hungry! Seriously! These look like a great lunch!

  9. Avo on toast with never get old! Works for every meal of the day, plus snacks. I love mine with nutritional yeast and sesame seeds sprinkled on top…that’s if it makes it onto the toast…

  10. I love this combo and it makes such a gorgeous, versatile snack or lunch!

  11. I am so not over avocado toast!!! Top it with an egg or these potatoes or just simply with CRP flakes and lemon zest, any way I am in!!! Hemp seeds? Worth a try?

  12. I love all things on toast – especially if it combines avocado and sweet potatoes. YUM. Pinning this and hopefully trying it soon! 🙂

  13. You’ve elevated toast to a whole new level for me and I’m loving the combo of sweet potato and avocado. Now why haven’t I combined those too?

  14. I have something a little embarrassing to admit. I’ve never had avocado toast. (I wish I had the ability to type that in a very small font so it was like typing a whisper.) The truth is that I don’t have a good explanation for it. I love toast, I love avocado, and I love food trends, but maybe I’ll just jump on it soon and pretend like avocado toast and me were always best friends.

  15. This toast recipe looks filling and delicious! I have to make it a.s.a.p. Happy Wednesday 🙂

  16. I could eat avocado toast all day everyday and never tire of it! Definitely loving this version as well!

  17. What a keen idea! It’s quick. Something different than a sandwich. Also can use left over sweet potatoes. Bingo—it takes good too.
