Sweet potatoes may seem like cold weather food -- they are a Thanksgiving staple, after all -- but they're also ideal for grilling, roasting, baking, or steaming in the summer. And now, thanks to blogger Kelsey at Little Bits Of, we have an ingenious new way to enjoy them: Sweet potato toast.

Craving avocado toast for breakfast one morning, but out of bread, Kelsey substituted thin slices of sweet potato that she cooked in her toaster for two rounds on the highest setting. She spread each with mashed avocado and served them alongside scrambled eggs and turkey bacon (are you hungry yet?).

Then she took her brilliant idea two steps further by pairing toasted sweet potatoes with almond butter, cinnamon, and banana; and with tuna, red onion, and relish. Yum. Try her recipes for fast and easy side or snack, or get inspired by other flavor pairings: Top them with curry powder, cumin, cinnamon, and red pepper and serve alongside chicken or pork; use in place of tortillas to make black bean tostadas with cilantro sauce; or top with mini marshmallows for a treat inspired by sweet potato casserole.
