Turkey Sweet Potato Sliders are a tasty paleo and gluten free appetizer. The "buns" are made from sliced sweet potatoes for a fun twist!
These Turkey Sweet Potato Sliders are truly the perfect bite. Who needs sweet potato fries with a burger when you can have a sweet potato bun!? Okay... I would probably still eat the fries too, but how adorable are these!?
You can top these sliders with your favorite burger toppings. Honestly, I just used Primal Kitchen's Unsweetened Ketchup on top, but you can get creative. They are just so flavorful on their own. I added a nice mix of spices into the ground turkey itself.
Ingredients in this recipe
- medium sized sweet potatoes
- 94% lean ground turkey meat
- thinly sliced scallion
- almond flour
- nutritional yeast
- coconut aminos
- dijon mustard
- salt and pepper to taste
- avocado oil
Use 94% lean ground turkey meat. There are different types of ground turkey meat based on fat percentages. I don't recommend using anything higher than 94%. If you use a ground meat with basically zero fat, the patties will not be moist and juicy.
If the ground turkey is sticky when you are trying to form the patties, coat your hands with a little water or oil to make things easier. When the ground meat gets warm, it tends to become more sticky. You could also cover the meat and let it sit in the fridge for a bit before forming the patties.
