Sweet Potato Salmon & Cranberry Crostinis

Feb 21, 2024

I love sweet potato. These little crostinis are so easy to make, look pretty and taste yummo! I made two different toppings on the plate. You could stick with the recipe I used - or get creative and create your own toppings.




  • 2 small sweet potatoes
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 5 tablespoons whipped cream cheese
  • 85g smoked salmon
  • Chopped fresh chives, as needed for garnish 



  • 5 tablespoons  whipped cream cheese
  • 5 tablespoons chopped dried cranberries
  • 5 tablespoons chopped salted roasted pistachios
  • Chopped fresh parsley, as needed for garnish



  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. MAKE THE SWEET POTATO CROSTINI BASE: Cut the ends off the sweet potatoes and then cut the potatoes into ¼-inch-thick slices. Brush both sides of the potato slices with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
  3. Arrange the potato slices on the prepared baking sheet and roast until they are golden brown and crisp, 17 to 20 minutes. Let cool completely.
  4. MAKE THE SMOKED SALMON CROSTINI: Top half the sweet potato slices with 1 teaspoon cream cheese each. Tear the smoked salmon into 15 even pieces and place a piece on top of each potato slice. Garnish with chives and serve immediately.
  5. MAKE THE CRANBERRY-ALMOND CROSTINI: Top each of the remaining sweet potato slices with 1 teaspoon cream cheese. Sprinkle 1 teaspoon dried cranberries and 1 teaspoon almonds on top. Garnish with parsley and serve immediately.
