Sweet Potato Sliders

A great healthy recipe, that works great on the grill. A household favourite because it tastes like a gourmet burger. Enjoy!

Sweet Potato Buns: Ingredients:

  • 1 to 2 large sweet potatoes (sliced)
  • Avocado or coconut oil

 To make Sweet Potato Buns:

  1. Slice sweet potatoes. Keep the skin on. Rub coconut or avocado oil on both sides, and sprinkle with sea salt.
  2. Line a baking sheet with tinfoil and place sweet potatoes on sheet. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes. Remove and let cool.

 Slider Ingredients:

  • 1-lb extra lean or lean ground beef
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • ½ cup zesty Italian dressing (we've used Kraft)

To make Sliders:

  1. Lightly combine all ingredients.
  2. Gently form into small patties, about the size of the sweet potato buns.
  3. Cook patties over medium heat on lightly greased grill until a meat thermometer inserted sideways into centre of each patty reads at least 160°F (71°C).
  4. Place slider on top of sweet potato slice. Top with smashed avocado, onion, a slice of tomato, a small serving of mayo and ketchup. Place a sweet potato slice on top.

Serve with grilled veggies and a large salad!
