Blood Orange and Goat Cheese Sweet Potato Toast

Blood Orange & Goat Cheese Sweet Potato Toast

Entertaining feels hard, but it doesn’t have to be. It’s Friday night, you’ve got laundry hanging from all of your dining room chairs, and now you have 8 people (whom you dearly love) headed over for brunch in the morning. You’re thumbing through your Pinterest Feed looking up every French Toast Casserole, debating dashing that week of healthful eating in the name of easy entertaining.

In the words of my best gal pal, Lauren, put on some gangsta rap (in my case LeAnn Rhimes), throw your hair in a messy bun and handle it.


Sweet Potato Toast with Blood Orange and Almond Butter

No, but really, it’s not big deal. Here’s the thing I have to remind myself about entertaining all of the time: It doesn’t matter how you do it, it just matters that you invite them in. There are so many creative and easy ways to entertain a crowd or even a small bunch without the stress. Enter: Sweet Potato Toast – topped with Goat Cheese, Blood Orange, and Almond Butter, I might add. This combo may sound a little crazy to your guests, but it’s wildly satisfying and pleasing to the palate. The juxtaposition of the salty and creamy goat cheese marries well with the tangy blood orange and the almond butter rounds the bite out and provides a little protein punch.

Whenever I do choose to consume dairy or deli products, I always look for varieties that are natural. I prefer to use Dietz and Watson Originals because of what isn’t in their product as well as the quality of the product that goes in them.

Goat Cheese Topped Sweet Potato Toast

Back to the toast – serve this up with a side of scrambled eggs (you could add goat cheese here, too!), and your favorite mimosa for a brunch made bright, simple, and healthy.

Let’s get to it!

Sweet potato Toast for Brunch

WHAT YOU’LL NEED (measurements below):

Sweet potatoes – look for SPs that are long and straight for easy cutting

Almond butter

Blood orange

Dietz & Watson Originals Goat Cheese

Honey

Coconut oil spray

Optional: granola – you can find my favorite recipe here

WHAT YOU’LL DO:

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Scrub your sweet potatoes and pat dry. Cut them lengthwise into toast sized slices – about 1/4 – 1/2 inch thick. Place the slices on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and spray both sides with coconut oil. Bake this for about 25 minutes or until the sweet potato is cooked through. If you want a crisp on the “toast” turn the oven to broil and let it brown for about 1 minute per side.

Blood Orange

 

Goat Cheese and Blood Orange Combo

Slide the toast from the oven and let them cool as you peel and slice the blood orange. Measure out the almond butter into a bowl. Crumble goat cheese into a separate bowl with a fork. Now you’re ready to assemble.

Crumbled Goat Cheese

Spread on the almond butter, top with blood orange, sprinkle with goat cheese and drizzle with honey. Toast up!

    Oh my, that goat cheese! I always panic when I have people over but the best thing I learned is that people won’t remember the shape of your home but they’ll remember how you made them feel. I’m sure your guests were feeling pretty amazing after you fed them this sweet potato toast!

    • Miss AK

      Exactly!!!! You’re so so right!
