Ingredients

  • 1 cup ground, lean turkey
  • 1 cup finely shredded sweet potato
  • 6 strips turkey bacon
  • Salt & Pepper to taste

Directions

Precook the turkey bacon and microwave the shredded sweet potato until slightly tender, but not mushy.

Combine the ground turkey, cooked and chopped bacon, sweet potato, and seasonings into six patties.

Cook on the grill, frying pan, or griddle until cooked through. You can also bake these in a muffin tin in the oven at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes, making sure the bottoms do not burn.

To serve, place on a bun and top with your favorite condiments. I suggest a drizzle of maple syrup or a chipotle mayo.

Makes 6 turkey burgers

If you are following the 21 Day Fix program, per patty, serving: 1 Red, 1/4 Yellow

(Tip for 21 Day Fixers: I like to cut off 1/4 of my Sandwich Thin bun (I cut around the edges since it’s bigger than my patty, anyway.) that I’m using so that my total yellow count for my assembled burgers equals one yellow for easy tracking purposes.)
