Paleo burgers with sweet potato buns

For once I came up with a recipe on my own…. HOOORRRAAAYYYY!!!! I’m excited to share. We cooked these up before I embarked on the 30-day paleo challenge. But I wanted to share it with you guys regardless. I could still do this on the challenge I would just eliminate some of the toppings.

We were trying find an alternative to buns that wasn’t lettuce or mushrooms. So I thought, how about sweet potatoes? I came up with these on a whim (maybe there is hope for me!), and they are so good. I would even consider having them as sides with my eggs in the morning. So yummy!

Sweet Potato Buns:
two yams, shredded
egg whites (2-4)
fennel seed
garlic powder
oil for the pan

For the buns I used yams and shredded them using the fine-shredding option in my food processor. I placed the shredded yams in a bowl with the egg whites, and seasonings then used my hands to mix the ingredients.

Grab about a palm full of the mixture and press into patties by hand then put them in a frying pan with coconut oil.


Press the patties down with a spatula to compress them and flip them, when you see fit. They take about 15 minutes to cook.

We cooked up some hamburgers and I mixed up some guacamole (secret – not so secret recipe) then loaded up our burgers. These burgers were unbelievably good. I don’t miss regular burger buns one bit. I loaded my burger with chevre (I know, not so paleo), spinach, guacamole and the buns. A must try!!

Presented beautifully!

Ready to be inhaled. Still tastes incredible.

Bon apetit!
