Sweet Potato Turkey Burger Sliders use sweet potato as the “buns” which will revolutionize the way you make turkey burger sliders!
The combination of ground turkey and the sweet potato adds a flavorful twist to your original turkey burger. It’s kind of like combining your sweet potato fries and a bite of your turkey burger…but in one bite!
These turkey burgers are also wonderful as is or even using lettuce wraps if you don’t have sweet potato!
They are also gluten free, paleo and full of protein and antioxidants! If you feel like you want a break from beef or hamburger meat these win every time!
I am showing you step by step how simple it is to make these sliders!
First you will roast your sweet potato slices in the oven for 20-30 minutes at 375 degrees F or until tender. Cut your sweet potato rounds 1/2 inch thick.
While the sweet potato rounds cook, prep your turkey burgers. In a medium sized bowl you will mix your ground turkey, cheese, white onion, oregano, cayenne, garlic powder and Italian seasoning together.
Give everything a nice mix, and add in green onions!
You will cook the patties on the stove in a frying pan in batches. It will make about 16 small patties. Be sure to keep a close eye on them, since they are small they cook fast and can burn quickly! Cook until internal temperature of 165 degrees F.
Then once the sweet potatoes are cooked and the patties are done, you can line up the Sweet Potato Turkey Burger Slider station! Serve these sliders with all of your favorite toppings! I have some ideas for you below.
