How to Make Smoky Sweet Potato Burgers


  1. 1. Garlic processing--- to roast garlic, I like to roast a few bulbs at once (like 4-5) to have for the week.
  2. 2. Potato processing--- pierce potatoes (I used 2 large) all over with a fork and place on a paper towel, setting in the microwave. Microwave for 5 minutes, then flip and cook for 5 minutes more. Remove, slice the potato in half and let cool until you can scoop out the flesh.
  3. 3. Burger Preparation: Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Roast sweet potatoes for 45 minutes and cool. Peel sweet potatoes and set aside (left over sweet potatoes work well in this step as well). In a large saute pan, saute onions and garlic in olive oil over medium heat. In a large bowl, add sweet potatoes, onion, garlic, and all other remaining ingredients. Make 6-8 patties. Pan sear sweet potato patties in skillet, then bake for 10 minutes at 375 degrees.
  4. 4. Assemble by topping burgers with roasted garlic cream and avocado! We also used caramelized red onion one night and it was delicious.
