Roasted Sweet Potato Sandwich with Apples, Pesto, Kale, and Blue Cheese Recipe

When I was in Boston, I had the most amazing sweet potato sandwich at Flour Bakery. I also tried the sticky bun and a few cookies, they were super tasty, but the sandwich was my favorite. If the sandwich beat out the cookies, you know it was good. I am usually all about the cookies:)

I have been thinking about that sandwich ever since I got home from my Boston trip. I was tempted to hop on a plane to Boston to get my fix, but plane tickets were pretty pricey…that would have been one expensive sandwich! Instead, I recreated the sandwich in my own kitchen and was successful. This Roasted Sweet Potato Sandwich with Apples, Pesto, Kale, and Blue Cheese is just as good as the original.

This sandwich is loaded with flavor. Let me give you a run down of what you can find inside of this glorious sandwich: roasted sweet potatoes, tart apple slices, kale, basil pesto, and crumbled blue cheese. All of these fabulous flavors are layered between two slices of hearty bread. YUM!!

I am so glad I don’t have to travel to Boston to enjoy this sandwich. I loved my time in Boston, but it is kind of far from Salt Lake City. Now, I can enjoy this Roasted Sweet Potato Sandwich with Apples, Pesto, Kale, and Blue Cheese at home, anytime I want….which will probably be a few times a week because I am obsessed! Make this sandwich and you will find out why! It is a winner!

  • 1 large sweet potato washed and cut into 1/4-inch thick rounds
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • 4 slices hearty bread
  • 1/3 cup chopped kale
  • 2 tablespoons basil pesto
  • 1 Granny Smith apple cored and thinly sliced
  • 1/3 cup crumbled blue cheese


  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Place the sweet potato rounds in a medium bowl. Drizzle with olive oil and toss to coat. Place the sweet potatoes on a large baking sheet, in a single layer. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Bake until the rounds are browned and tender, 20 to 25 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool.
  • To assemble the sandwiches, lay two pieces of bread on the counter. First, add the kale. Top with sweet potato rounds. Drizzle the pesto over the sweet potatoes. Next, add the apple slices. Top with blue cheese and the second slice of bread. Cut in half, if desired, and serve!

  1. Wow. That does sound amazing. I might have to turn it into a salad since I’m not a big fan of bread. Sweet potatoes and fall…a perfect mix!

  2. GET IN MY MOUTH NOW! This looks AMAZINGGGGG! Seriously, I love the jammed packed flavors in it and it’s simplicity to make! Perfect go-to for lunch. 🙂

  3. This is such an amazing sandwich! It’s loaded = which is just how I like it! And I love Flour Bakery. I clicked over to check out your New England trip and loved seeing all the photos. Glad you enjoyed our part of the country!

  4. I love the idea of a sweet potato sandwich! Next time I’m in Boston I have to go check this place out! Since I always have a sweet potato in the oven, I have a lot of leftovers and this is another great excuse to eat sweet potatoes all the time! And who would have thought apples would go so well with them! Gotta save this for later!

  5. Sweet potato sandwich is a great idea for meat replacement! I’ve never thought of this, genius!

  6. Absolutely delicious! I substituted siracha sauce for pesto and the variety of flavors and textures was beyond words….yummm!

  7. Your recipes look wonderful and yummy but there is always a video which takes forever to load right on top of the recipe so you can’t even read the recipe or close it until it opens. Can you not get rid of this or put it somewhere else rather than on top of the recipe?

  8. My husband and I just returned from Boston and they’re still serving this amazing sandwich. I was craving it today and I’m so glad I googled it and found your recipe. Can’t wait to try this!

    I have to laugh, I just finished the very same sandwich from the very same bakery(Beacon Hill location near Mass General Hospital) It is likely my last trip down this way for a bit, as hubby is wrapping up his 18 months of treatments here. I wish I had tried it sooner and was looking for a good copy cat recipe. You nailed it! I am excited to try to make it at home.

    Hello! Fellow food blogger here who is trying her best to eat clean whenever she can 🙂 This sandwich; this sandwich is KILLER GREAT! Due to storms here and the inability to get to a grocery store, I assembled atop griddled homemade sourdough slices, and substituted baby spinach leaves for the kale. I plan to make this again tomorrow and for however long until my Dansk Bleu runs out – thank you!
