Sweet Potato Turkey Burger Sliders

This year I’ve been making a conscious effort to eat more at home, and learn some healthy and delicious new recipes.

Last night, my boyfriend and I made these sweet potato turkey burger sliders, and they were SO good I knew I needed to share them right away.


When you look at some of these recipes online, they can seem super intimidating. Obviously, some of them I modify (Like I did with the original recipe that I found for these) because there are times where you can’t find the called for ingredient, or just don’t care enough to try and find it (for example, when a recipe asks me for like nitrate free bacon…I just use normal bacon…)

Also, this may be annoying but some of my measurements aren’t exact…but you get the idea.

So! Here is what I used for this recipe:


  • One pound of ground turkey

  • About 1/3 of a chopped up yellow onion

  • About 1/2 a cup of panko bread crumbs

  • 1 egg

  • 2 tbsp of taco seasoning (I used epicures)

  • a ton of minced garlic

  • a bit of Himalayan pink salt

Additional needed ingredients:

  • Avocados or guac (I made guac, which is why lemons and garlic are on this list, the amount of avocados also depends on how much guac you’d like, I used 1 and a half)

  • 1 Lemon

  • 1 large Sweet potato

  • More garlic

  • Salt

  • Olive Oil

  • Siracha maya (I made it, 1/4 cup of light mayo, 1 tbsp siracha sauce, a squeeze of lime)

  • bacon (turkey if preferred)

  • Preheat the oven to 425

  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Slice your sweet potato into rounds, and brush a bit of olive oil on each side. I also seasoned with a bit of pink salt, and a garlic and onion nutritional yeast (also Epicure)

  • Put into the oven for 15 minutes, flip, then back into the oven for another 15 minutes.

  • While the sweet potato is in the oven, combine all of the turkey burger ingredients and make small patties. Heat a pan over medium to high heat on the stove, add a bit of cooking oil or spray (I used an olive oil spray), and cook the patties until they’re cooked through (I’d say about 4 minutes on each side give or take)

  • Make your guac and siracha mayo in the mean time, as well as cook your bacon (we made two pieces) and wait for your sweet potato and turkey burgers to finish cooking.

  • Once cooked, stack in the order of sweet potato, turkey burger, guac, a bit of siracha maya, and chopped up bacon. Then you’re ready to eat!

I understand that my instructions aren’t exactly precise, but that’s just how I cook! I add different things here and there depending what I’m in the mood for, and encourage you to too! If you’re interested in the original recipe, you can find it here. Happy eating!
