French toast was one of my childhood favorite weekend breakfast! But not eating gluten, and not liking most of the gluten free option at the store… and not having the time or motivation to bake my own bread all the time I had to come up with something else! Since I love sweet potatoes and been using them as “toasts” for I don’t know how long I thought I try to make a sweet potato French toast. To be honest, I prefer them over regular ones! I just love the creaminess and texture of the sweet potato and then the egg fry covering them makes the most amazing combination! Not to mention that it boosts your body with a lot more nutritious than a regular French toast! There are two options for prepping the sweet potatoes. No 1, in the oven. This is the option I used since I don’t have a toaster, but also because I prefer this one. No2. Roast the sweet potato slices in a toaster, which is a bit faster.
A few tips:
- Make equally thin slices so they have the same baking time.
- Make sure your pan is hot before adding them into the pan. You want the egg mixture to fry quickly.
- Don’t bake (in the oven or toaster) or fry them for too long. You don’t want them to get too mushy, they should be firm but soft.
- You can easily make them the day before and then just reheat them on low temperature in the oven.
- They are good to store for 3-4 days in the fridge.
