Sweet Potato Bruschetta

sweet potato bruschetta

Sweet? Sweets?  What are sweets?  I want sweets. I have 37 Lenten days to go before I can have sweets……..but this “sweet” post ain’t about no real sweets except that it is “Sweeeet”! I recently hosted 4 very special ladies for lunch and put together this super quick Sweet Potato Bruschetta as a little Amuse Bouche while we chatted and caught up before lunch.

Crunchy crostini is topped with soft sweet potato and then given a savory twist with a little fresh thyme, salt and pepper, drizzled with honey and then finally finished off with fresh mozzarella.  Soft, crunchy, sweet and savory, this bruschetta is not too filling as a kick start to a good meal.
