Chef's Notes

Gluten-Free
Use gluten-free bread or gluten-free tortillas or wraps instead of bread.

Flour-Free
Omit the bread. Instead of mashing the sweet potato, slice it in half. Spread the hummus on top of the sweet potato, then add layers of the remaining ingredients.

Soy-Free
Substitute coconut aminos for tamari.

Prep
Cook the sweet potato ahead. For best results, make sandwiches to order.

Storage
Store leftover coconut bacon in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 7 days.
