I found this recipe hiding in the back corner of my brain the other day. Why oh why? And how did I forget about these? There isn’t anything so sweet as a sister. For the last 30 years, I’ve been able to call Dean’s sister mine as well. She posted this delicious looking picture and I had to make them right away. Now it is your turn. Make these sliders right away. Next step is to post the link for this recipe for others to make. Keep these gems going.
Sweet Potato Sliders
- 1.5 pound ground turkey or lean ground beef, thawed
- 1 teaspoon garlic salt
- 1.5 teaspoon steak seasoning
- 2 large sweet potatoes
- 1 Tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
- 3-4 slices cooked bacon
- lettuce torn into small pieces (slider size)
Mix ground turkey with garlic salt and steak seasoning. Shape into 8-10 mini patties (about 1/4 of a cup meat). Set aside. Remember these are small patties. Look at the size of your sweet potato slices to judge what size to make each patty. The slices will be the bun.
Slice sweet potatoes into 1/4-1/2 inch thick slices. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Roast in oven at 400 for 20-30 minutes (flipping half-way through). You want edges to be slightly crispy.
While potatoes are roasting, grill the burgers. Place patties on a well-heated grill flipping after 3-4 minutes, and cook until cooked through (and desired done-ness).
Assemble burgers, placing a mini burger in between two roasted sweet potato slices. Garnish burgers with lettuce, bacon, guacamole, and/or mustard.
Be creative. What do you like on your burger?
