What if you were just minutes away from a breakfast like this on your average Tuesday? Well thanks to meal prepping, this can actually be the case. Having the sweet potato toast already prepped ahead makes this recipe extra easy.
From there you just mash some avocado right onto the toast, top with an over easy/poached egg, and sprinkle with everything bagel seasoning. And there you have it, a cafe style breakfast in just minutes.
If you want to take this right over the top, I like to add some sliced radishes and micro greens to the mix as well.
So why sweet potato toast instead of regular toast?
Well here’s the thing, sweet potatoes make a great gluten free/grain free alternative to actual toast. Also I personally don’t eat toast anymore, so sweet potatoes are a perfect substitute. Much to my dismay the whole ‘avocado toast craze’ started after I stopped eating wheat. I always felt like I was missing out whenever we were in a coffee shop, and I’d watch plate after plate of avocado toast go by our table.
So I decided to create an at home version that I could eat. And while there’s plenty of gluten free bread out there, I try to stay away from gluten free products for the most part. This brings us to sweet potato which is a fantastic flavor pairing with avocado, and makes a great substitute for toast as well.
Once you have your sweet potato toast all prepped, you’re good to go for the week.
How to meal prep sweet potato toast:
- Thoroughly scrub the sweet potatoes, then slice them lengthwise with a sharp knife about 1/4″.
- Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and preheat the oven.
- Lightly brush the sweet potato slices with avocado oil on both sides.
- Roast until tender, then cool and store in an airtight container.
- Then when you’re ready to serve your ‘toast’ you can either toast it in a toaster. Or if you’re like me and no longer even have a toaster, warm it in a pan on the stove top, then use the same pan to cook your egg(s).
Topping Ideas for Avocado Toast:
- Everything bagel seasoning is great sprinkled over the top. You can find a recipe to make your own under my Breakfast Salad recipe.
- Micro greens, sprouts, or chopped fresh herbs in the summertime.
- Thinly sliced radishes.
- Consider leaving out the egg if you’re not looking for some protein and adding a sprinkle of pomegranate arils or fresh berries.
- Crumbled feta cheese is a favorite of mine to add along with the bagel seasoning, micro greens, and radishes.
How to cook the eggs:
- You can poach them by boiling several inches of water in a saucepan. Lower the heat to a simmer, then add a teaspoon of vinegar and crack the eggs into a bowl before lowering them into the water. From there use a slotted spoon to gently move them to keep them from sticking to the bottom. Then simmer until your desired doneness is reached. I love mine with loads of runny yolk!
- You can also cook the eggs over easy in a skillet on the stove top to avoid poaching altogether. Add just a touch of avocado oil or butter to the pan. Then crack the eggs into the pan and cook over medium heat until the bottom begins to set up. Flip the egg(s) and cook until the desired doneness is reached. Again I prefer my over easy eggs to have plenty of runny yolk to go along with the mashed avocado and sweet potato toast.
