With these six ways to top roasted sweet potatoes, everyone will be sure to find something they love. Pick one or two to make for dinner or go all out and try all six!
Happy Thanksgiving Eve! I’m here today to tell you about a delicious meal idea that, while not necessarily meant for Turkey Day itself, is certainly perfect for any busy night (or day or even morning) of the year when you need some fast and healthy grub.
It’s six ways to top roasted sweet potatoes! With four savory and two sweet options, there is something for everyone here. In the savory camp, we’ve got a breakfast sweet potato, a pesto chicken sweet potato, a chorizo avocado sweet potato, and a garlic shrimp sweet potato. And playing for team sweet sweet potato (double sweet!), we have an apple walnut sweet potato and a spiced almond butter & honey sweet potato.
The canvas for all these delightful combinations is the humble sweet potato, which is full of Vitamin A, fiber, and plenty of natural sweetness. It’s so easy to roast a bunch of sweet potatoes and prep a few toppings, and then everyone can dress their sweet potato up to taste. Although it’s really hard to pick a favorite, I have a particularly large amount of love for the breakfast sweet potato and the chorizo avocado sweet potato. Which one do you think you’ll like best?
I was so excited when the North Carolina SweetPotato Commission asked me to help them spread some sweetness and sweet potato love around World Kindness Day, which was on November 13th. Things can be super busy this time of year, but it’s important to remember to be sweet as often as possible, whether that means whipping up these roasted sweet potatoes and toppings for your friends and family or taking the time to help someone in need. I love the idea of sweet potatoes adding more literal sweetness to our lives as well as reminding us to be sweet to the people around us.

Fun fact: North Carolina has grown more sweet potatoes than any other state since 1971. Isn’t that cool? And you probably already know this, but sweet potatoes are good any way you slice them, from spiralized into pasta to shredded into latkes to thinly sliced into a gratin. You can even use them as burger buns! You can also try sweet potato crostini, sweet potato toast’s more elegant, cocktail-party-ready cousin:
