a roasted sweet potato sandwich…

At the Oh Joy Office, we do something called "family meal" where each of us is assigned one day each week to make lunch for the whole team (I bring lunch on Fridays). It makes it easy to only have to worry about bringing lunch one day a week and then the other days you get to enjoy a surprise lunch that someone else put together. It's a fun way for us all to think of recipes that are easy to reheat or make in the office with just a microwave and toaster oven! But more than anything, now we all sit down to lunch at the same time everyday and enjoy a meal together. Before this, we'd all eat at random times, pay way too much on takeout, and I'd often be eating at my desk or forgetting to eat…which is never good!

Our new crafting assistant, Jessica, made this sweet potato sandwich the other day for family meal, and we all loved it so much, I had to share the super easy recipe with you here today! I'm not even vegetarian, and I found this to be so good and so filling, too…

Sweet Potato Sandwich

Makes 2 to 3 sandwiches

You'll need:

 – Sliced Sourdough Bread

– 3 tbs Olive Oil

– 2 tbs Balsamic Vinegar

– 1 tbs Honey

– Goat Cheese

– Shaved Parmesan Cheese

– 1 Roasted Sweet Potato

– Arugula or Baby Spinach

Here's how:

1. Slice raw sweet potato into medallions about 1/4" to 1/2" in width. Drizzle with mixture of honey, olive oil, salt, pepper, and a dash of cayenne pepper (if you like a little spice).

2. Bake the sweet potatoes on a baking sheet at 350 for about 30 min, flipping periodically.

3. Toast sourdough slices. Then use goat cheese as spread on each side of bread, then drizzle with olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Add arugula, sweet potatoes, shaved parmesan, and salt & pepper to taste.

You can turn it into a regular sandwich or an open-faced sandwich. Enjoy!

  1. What a coincidence, i was thinking of using the sweet potato I have today. This recipe couldn’t have come at a better time 🙂 Will try it out. I even bought Sourdough bread yesterday lol.

  2. honey, unfortunately, is my least favorite food ever (i know- so random) but this looks so good!!! i’ll try making it without it and maybe adding a slice of prosciutto or two?

  3. This sandwich is a brilliant! I am so used to seeing avocado toast everywhere, and while they look great and can get ultra creative, I actually just grew an allergy to it so I can’t really have it anymore. Thanks for this alternative!

  4. This looks DELICIOUS! I grew up eating roasted sweet potatoes (my parents are from the South) and I love them but I’ve never put them on a sandwich. I’m going to try it soon.

  5. I just love sweet potato in so many ways.
    So much so that I started a company making sweet potato salsas!
    I don’t know if your readers would find it interesting to know about… it’s Yummy Yammy, at http://www.YummyYammy.com of course.
    There are Mexican salsas, Tuscan salsa and Moroccan salsa, all with sweet potato as the main ingredient!
    One of the first products I had was a sweet potato spread, with honey, lemon & ginger… was fabulous on sandwiches! I’m so for spreading the yammy love.
    Rock on with your bad self,
    Lisa

  6. Joy this is my favorite thing now! I’ve eaten it 5 times since I discovered this post last week! It is so delicious and I’ve been making it on these mini ciabatta rolls, so tasty. Even my husband is begging for them. Thank you!
