I’ve been eating these Sweet Potato Buns for a few months now. They are so easy, they didn’t really seem worthy of their own post. I’ve now decided that because they are so easy, and that because I eat them so often, and because they are so good, that they do deserve their own post.

Ingredients
  1. ! Medium Sweet Potato
  2. Chili Powder
  3. Cumin
  4. Cooking Spray or Cooking Oil
Instructions
  1. Wash and pat dry the sweet potato.
  2. Poke it several times with a fork.
  3. Cook potato for about 2 minutes in the microwave, flip it and cook another 2 minutes.
  4. (You could also bake your potato in the oven.)
  5. You should be able to gently slide a fork into the potato.
  6. You may need an additional minute depending on the size of you potato, but donโ€™t over cook.
  7. A mushy potato wonโ€™t work well.
  8. Slice your cooked potato into 1/4โ€ณ slices, season with Cumin and Chili Powder on each side and cook in a skillet with cooking spray or cooking oil until just a tad crispy!
Notes
  1. You will need to weigh your Potato Buns to determine the SmartPoints Value.

I had mixed some cooked Chicken with Taco Seasoning and Greek Yogurt. This was really good!

Use them like Potato Skins and top with Smashed Avocado, Scrambled Eggs and Bacon Crumbles.

This Sweet Potato was super narrow, so I topped these Sweet Potato Buns with Hard Boiled Egg Slices, Guac and a few Crumbles of Bacon

I think Eggs and Smashed Avocado and Bacon are my favorite.

However you decide to eat your Sweet Potato Buns, I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

    I’ve just recently been asked that by several people and I’ve seen that question floating around on Instagram too.

    Yes I do eat the skin on sweet potatoes. I guess that I never thought to not? Since being asked that question, I have asked several other people, and they too eat the skin.

    Thanks for asking!

  8. I eat the skin from a white potato but never eaten the skin on a sweet potato. Do you eat the skin from these?
