Sweet Potato "Bruschetta"

This one is an Italian favorite. Sweet Potato can make a great alternative to bread.  The preparation time is also surprisingly short for this superfood. It is a quick alternative to get more bang from your breakfast when you are running out of time. The purpose of this recipe is to consider this as a substitute for bread! You can also get creative with the topping too and added bell pepper, corn kernels and avocado instead of our suggestions here! Sweet potatoes are better than bread in nearly every way possible and will give you longer staying power throughout the day.
