A Better Way to Eat Toast

When this paleo-friendly riff on toast first hit our newsfeeds, bloggers and health gurus alike praised the bread-swapping trend for its ability to be popped into a toaster and devoured. Well, we tried that approach — and then we never tried it again. In fact, we learned that sweet potato toast is at its best when it's toasted in the oven. Plus, it makes for a killer weekday breakfast when you bake a bunch of toast ahead in the oven, then simply pop in the toaster to reheat.
