Sweet Potato Burger (Makes 4 burgers)

Image 

Sweet Potato Pancake Bun:

2 sweet potatoes (to make 4 cups shredded)

2 tsp. coconut flour

1 cup + 2 tbsp. egg beaters

2 tsp. cinnamon

2 tsp. ginger

Coconut oil (for cooking use)

Directions:

  1. Peel the two sweet potatoes and shred them in a food processor. You will need for cups of shredded potatoes. (2 medium sized sweet potatoes may provide more than 4 cups, save the rest for another recipe!)
  2. In a bowl, mix 2 tbsp. coconut flour, 1 cup + 2 tbsp. egg beaters, 2 tsp. cinnamon, 2 tsp. ginger and the 4 cups shredded sweet potato.
  3. Put 1 tsp. coconut oil on a skillet on medium heat. Once it’s melted, scoop out with your hand the potato batter (about 5 by 5 inches). Flatten the pancake out with a spatula; it should start to sizzle from the coconut oil.
  4. Cook for 2-3 min, or when you can flip it in one piece. Then cook the other side.

(I cook one pancake at a time, using 1 tsp. of coconut oil per pancake; this makes it stay together and extra crispy!) The batter should make 10 pancakes.

Burger:

1 package ground turkey

1 tsp. paprika

1 tsp. cumin

1 tsp. onion

1 tsp. garlic

1 tsp. pepper

4 slices nitrate free bacon

Directions:

  1. Cook the bacon first, and then once it’s done, place the bacon on a paper town to cool and leave the bacon fat in the pan to cook the burgers.
  2. Mix the ground turkey with the spices and make 4 burger patties.
  3. Cook them on the skillet on medium heat for 5-8 min. (Put a cover on the pan to cook faster and evenly).

Putting it together:

Put the burger between two sweet potato pancakes and add the bacon. Bon appetite!
