Quick Crispy Roasted Sweet Potatoes

These quick crispy roasted sweet potatoes are honestly one of our go-to recipes for breakfast, lunch or dinner! You can never have enough crispy sweet potatoes in the house, at least ours! What I love about this recipe is that it is super fast to whip up and oh so satisfying. Like I could lock myself in the closet and eat the whole pan by myself, oops!

The key to making these crispy is to make them really small and cook them at a really high temperature in the oven. Just keep an eye on them because we want them crispy but not burned to smithereens! That would just be a crying shame!

We love to eat these with eggs and bacon for breakfast, but they are also pretty tasty on top of a salad for lunch in place of croutons or as a side for dinner with some roasted chicken, yum! You really can do so many things with this recipe, there are infinite possibilities!

To make this recipe even easier, cut the chunks ahead of time and store in the fridge so they are ready to go when you need them! Just store them in a covered container and you are good to go at the drop of a hat. You could cook them up ahead of time and refrigerate, but they won’t be as crispy the next day. You would have to pop them back in the oven and try to crisp up once again.

If you’re a sweet potato lover and hoarder, like me, you will want to make this recipe over and over and over again. I hope you love these crispy taters as much as we do! Happy roasting!

Lazy Slow Cooker Frittata-Whole30 Friendly

Slow cooker frittata recipe

I call this the lazy slow cooker frittata because for one, the recipe is easy enough to whip up while reclining in your lazy boy and second, it’s even easier to clean up! I use parchment paper to line the inside of my slow cooker and there is literally no mess left afterwards. I don’t know about you, but a crusty slow cooker is something I dread! My elbow grease ran out in 2016, lol!

Don’t worry about putting the parchment into your slow cooker, it’s heat resistant. Just don’t make the mistake of using wax paper because that stuff will melt and possibly even ignite, leaving you with an entirely new kind of mess to clean up! We do NOT want that happening, ok?! Ha ha, you’ve been warned!

Slow cooker frittata-eggs in ceramic holder

This recipe is one I posted to the Whole30 Recipes feed on Instagram when I was guest hosting in the fall. It’s taken me forever and a day to get it up here, and I have a few more coming your way. I love to make this in the evening and then slice it up in portions, and pop it in the fridge or freezer for an easy re-heat meal anytime! I even like to eat it cold with some slices of ripe avocado on top, a little cilantro and then dipped in a delicious sauce.

It’s perfect to free up the oven too if you are doing a lot of meal prep in the kitchen. I like to cook this while i’m making meals for the week ahead! Nothing better than a set it and forget it dish! This would also be great to make for Sunday brunch with a side of crispy potatoes, or for breakfast when you have company coming to stay. They would definitely love you forever ever! Don’t forget to click the little red save button in the top righthand corner so you can save it on Pinterest for later!

Paleo Sweet Potato “Toast”

Oh Sweet Potato “Toast” how I love thee! My love for sweet potato toast is no secret. I have been professing my love for sweet potato “toast” for quite some time on social media & during my takeover of The Whole30 Recipes last year and once again with my takeover last week!

You all clearly love this slightly sweet, crusty, delicious little sub for the real thing. While it tastes nothing at all like it’s counterpart, it’s still DANG delicious and I don’t care!  It’s one of my most liked recipes on Instagram (next to my chicken veggie poppers) so I HAD to bring it to the blog so you can print out the recipe (wish they had that feature on IG, haha) and pin it to your Pinterest board for later too!

My love affair with sweet potato toast is REAL. I even played breakfast Jenga with it to create this lovely little poached egg version below. I think I play with my food more now than I ever did as a kid…lol! But I just wanted to send a quick thank you to my mom for letting me play with my food as a youngster. I’ve decided I will 100% let my kids play with their food, as long as they eat it afterwards 😉

If you are doing a Whole30, the only version of the “toasts” that are not Whole 30 compliant are the ones below. I consider this version more of a treat.sweet potato toast fruit and honey
