This is a recipe I created from a menu item at a restaurant, a recipe for sweet potato burgers from Fresh Food Fast, and flavors I think go well together. Hope you enjoy these as much as we did!
Sweet Potato Burgers
Prep time: 10-15 minutes
Cook time: 10 minutes
1 medium to large sized yam or sweet potato, peeled and grated
3 green onions, finely chopped
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup flour
salt and pepper to taste
1 ripe avocado, sliced or mashed, your preference, optional
mushroom, sliced, optional
ranch dressing, optional
Mix together yam/sweet potato, green onions, eggs and flour. Add salt and pepper. Form into balls and squish into patties, approximately 1/4″ to 1/2″ thick. Heat oil in skillet over medium heat. Cook sweet potato patty until crispy, 5 minutes each side.
Meanwhile, saute mushrooms if desired, and cook bacon. Serve sweet potato burger with mushrooms, bacon, avocado slices, and ranch dressing on a bun. I used delicious multigrain buns from a local bakery, and served salad with my burgers.
You can put what you’d like on these burgers, they’re fairly versatile. I think next time I may add soy sauce to the sweet potato patties.
