If you love sweet potatoes and you love turkey burgers, why not combine them into one amazing burger?! It might sound complicated but I promise this delicious burger combination is super easy to throw together!

Start out by peeling and chopping your sweet potato. Then place it in water and bring to a boil. Boil until soft and then remove from the water. Using a fork smash the sweet potato pieces until there aren’t any large chunks.

Grab a large bowl and combine the mashed sweet potato, raw ground turkey and seasonings. Mix well with your hands. Then portion out into 5 evenly sized patties. I personally love using my burger press that I got off Amazon HERE, but you can also just roll them into a ball and flatten them with your hands.

Now it’s time to either cook the patties on a grill or on a stovetop until no longer pink. About 6-7 minutes per side, or until the center reaches 165 degrees F.

Either serve the burgers immediately or store them in the fridge for up to 5 days. Need the perfect side dish to make this a deliciously balanced meal? Try serving them along side my sauteed green bean recipe!
