If you haven't noticed, bread has been looking a lot more orange on Instagram these days—and it's not a new filter. It's a new trend: sweet potato "toast." That is, spreading your favorite toast toppings (e.g., avocado, bananas, eggs, nut butters, etc.) over toasted sweet potato instead of toasted bread.

And you can accomplish this by popping sweet potato slices in the toaster. Yes, you can put sweet potato slices in the toaster. Avocado toast just traded in gluten for a vegetable, and the world didn't end.

The first we saw of this phenomenon was from health coach and wellness blogger Lisa Bryan, who supplied us with a recipe for Sweet Potato "Toast" with Avocado, Cucumber, Smoked Salmon, and Poached Egg back in November.

But it has resurfaced since blogger Kelsey Preciado had the genius idea of simply slicing a sweet potato into ¼-inch-thick pieces, popping each slice in the toaster, toasting them for two rounds, and then using them in place of bread for toast.

*New Recipe!* On the blog today I am sharing 3 ways to make Sweet Potato Toast and you'll never believe how I cook the taters! Click on the link in my bio for my secrets... 😎 @whole30 peeps rejoice! #toast #avocadotoast #sweetpotato

Once the spud is toasted, feel free to top it with the accouterments of your choice. Preciado made it three ways: one with almond butter, banana slices, and cinnamon; one with avocado, salt, pepper, and some lemon zest; and one with tuna salad and a few slices of red onion.

Sweet, savory, or somewhere in between, the options are as endless as your love of avocado toast. Maybe a little brie and honey? What about some crème fraîche, smoked salmon, and capers?

We scoured Instagram for some more inspiration, and it wasn't hard to find our favorites (seriously—sweet potato toast is everywhere now):
