  • Kids love a toppings bar! Put out small bowls of toppings and let them make their own creations.
  • In addition to the toppings shown, try leftover chili; stir-fried or steamed vegetables; caramelized pineapple with ham; nonfat plain yogurt; sunflower seeds or other nuts; peas; sautéed apples; or even a poached egg.
  • Sweet potatoes are very versatile. Bake extra and use the leftovers for easy meal prep.
