Sweet Potato and Avocado Sandwich

"A surprising but delightful flavor combination - try it! As with most sandwiches, it's wide open for interpretation; this is the way we like it. I hope you do too! (Baking time is not included in prep time.)"

  1. Delicious! I really enjoyed this sandwich. I added in some lettuce, seasoned the sweet potato slices with black pepper, and used flatbread folded over instead of sandwich bread. Didn't use tomato or alfalfa sprouts b/c I didn't have them on hand. I woud imagine baby spinach leaves would be good, too. Great summer lunch, will make again. Thanks for sharing.
  2. this sammy was great! The taste combination was soo good and sweet, I just loved it! I added some of those soy bacon bits and it was sooo delicious! Thanx for this recipe :)
  3. What an amazingly different sandwich! My avocado was pretty ripe I was able to spread it on the bread. The dressing was sensational and I will be using in other sandwiches such as ham or sausage. But full marks for the sweet potato and avocado combo!
  4. Wow - I would have never though to put this combination of ingredients together, but it sure was good! I made homemade fat-free honey mustard, which contained mayonnaise, and therefore skipped the extra mayo. I made mine on a wrap but kept all the other ingredients the same. I baked my sweet potato the night before and put it in the refrigerator until I was ready to use it, which was nice because then all of my ingredients were the same temperature. This was so nice and creamy - it tasted so indulgent! Thanks Linorama!


Thanks for visiting my page! I'm a stay-at-home wife and mother - married for 20 years with a 16-year old daughter. It seems funny to be married so long since it just feels like yesterday when my handsome groom and I walked down the aisle. I love to cook and especially bake. I bake a lot less than I used to just because it's too tempting for me to have all those goodies sitting around. But give me a good snow day, and the oven goes into high gear! I like to sew & quilt, draw & paint, read, and play word games. My husband and I are total nerds -- we Tivo Jeopardy every day. :-) We all love old movies, especially anything with Cary Grant, Fred Astaire, Jimmy Stewart, Myrna Loy, William Powell, etc. OH - and Andy Hardy movies - they're the best!
