Make lunchtime or snacktime the G.O.A.T with this easy, sweet, and savory Goat Cheese, Fig, and Prosciutto Sweet Potato Toast recipe!
Sweet potato toast has become pretty trendy over the past few years. So I thought it was about time that I tasted what this healthy trend was all about! I’ve seriously been missing out, guys! With fall just a few weeks away, sweet potatoes are going to show up on our plates a lot and sweet potato toast is bound to become a new favorite lunch or snack! I mean, the topping possibilities are basically endless! I’ve seen sweet potato toast topped with berries and nut butters, tomato and avocado, and all kinds of interesting combos. They all look so good!
Plus, one sweet potato makes a lot of toast! So you can keep switching up how you eat it throughout the week (keep raw slices wrapped up in the fridge until you’re ready to cook them). This Goat Cheese, Fig, and Prosciutto Sweet Potato Toast turned out to be a pretty perfect lunch! The sweet and salty combo of flavors is the best of both worlds! As an Italian girl from Jersey, I’m no stranger to prosciutto and figs (figgettaboudit!). This time of year, I cannot wait to find figs at my local markets! Figs have a sweetness all their own that works so well with savory flavors – like prosciutto and goat cheese!
Under all of the sweet and salty goodness is a nice layer of Montchevre Goat Cheese! Goat cheese is one of my absolute favorite types of cheese! It’s creamy, salty, and mild in flavor. We crumble it on top of our salads, mix it into our breakfast scrambles, and now I’m topping sweet potato toast with it!
You can easily incorporate Montchevre Goat Cheese into your healthy lifestyle, which makes it perfect for sweet potato toast! It’s made with quality goat’s milk that’s collected from local, independent family farms. It’s high in protein, calcium, vitamin D, is rich in nutrients and vitamins, and contains less lactose!
Montchevre Goat Cheese is available in so many flavors, too! I’ve never tried anything more adventurous than garlic and herb goat cheese before. My fridge usually contains natural goat cheese. Since I knew that I wanted to finish this sweet potato toast off with a drizzle of honey, I used Montchevre’s Honey Goat Cheese for this recipe. The hint of sweetness is a nice balance to the tanginess of the goat cheese.

My first sweet potato toast experience did not disappoint! If you’re into the sweet potato toast trend and looking for a new way to top it, this is the way to go! This medley of sweet and savory flavors is so satisfying! No matter what combo I end up topping my next sweet potato toast creation with next, one thing’s for sure – I’m going to make it the G.O.A.T. with a creamy layer of Montchevre Goat Cheese! It’s the perfect base for all sorts of healthy toppings!
