  • Place sliced sweet potatoes in the toaster oven and set to toast. You will likely need to toast them through twice. Keep an eye on them to prevent burning.

  • Slice cherry or grape tomatoes in halves or quarters.
  • Assemble the toasts by placing sweet potato slices on a plate and top with pesto and then tomatoes. Serve and enjoy!
