25 Baked Sweet Potato Toppings to Crown Your Tubers

Keeping an arsenal of baked sweet potato toppings nearby is one of the best ways to ease nightly (and daily) decision fatigue. Despite their frequent liaising with roasty-toasty marshmallows, sweet potatoes are endlessly versatile—and get along well with loads of different flavors and ingredients. Roast them whole or in chunks and then let your imagination run wild with flavor combos. Add toasted seeds for a mix of texture and spice. Cool them off with a minty yogurt sauce you’ll want to put on everything. And smother your sweets in lentils and citrus to make a full meal out of them. From syrupy to savory, these baked sweet potato toppings will make for some seriously satiating spuds.
