Sweet Potato Sliders | Whole30

These Sweet Potato Sliders are full of umami flavor, spice, and texture! The green chile turkey sausage is delicious however you eat it, but it’s particularly tasty on sweet potato “buns!” The avocado on top is the perfect garnish.

Sweet Potato Sliders

I am in love with these sliders. If you’ve been around here for a while, you know that I am obsessed with sweet potatoes. See this quiche, these taco bowls, this “rice,” this hash, this breakfast pizza, and this salad. Oh, and this breakfast bake. I think I need more sweet potato recipes! Obviously. That’s how this recipe came about.

I can’t decide if my favorite part of this recipe is the sweet potato buns or the green chile turkey sausage. Both of them are so tasty! While they’re good on their own, I think that each elevates the other to a whole new level. So if you make one, you should make the other. The sausage is a great recipe to meal prep for a busy week. So are the sweet potatoes; if you bake a batch of sweet potatoes at the beginning of the week, you can have sliders for ages! You can also use them in a new recipe that’s coming out next week . . . *wink wink.*

Sweet Potato Sliders

Here’s how the sweet potato “buns” work: Slice a baked, caramelly, soft sweet potato into rounds. (Do this carefully; the sweet potatoes are a bit mushy, and you don’t want to smash them.) Heat a skillet over medium heat and add a few teaspoons of cooking fat. Saute the sweet potato rounds for a few minutes per side until they develop a crispy exterior. Now they’re double-caramelized — inside and outside!

Top these rounds with your delicious sausage and a few avocado slices, and your life will be complete! Trust me. I couldn’t stop eating these sweet potato sliders.

I would eat these for any meal, but they would be especially good for breakfast. In fact, these would be very tasty with an egg on top! Sans egg, these sweet potato sliders are also very allergen-friendly. They are:

  • Paleo & Whole30
    • Free of gluten, grains, dairy, legumes, and soy
  • Nut-free
  • Easy
  • Insanely delicious

They would be perfect as an appetizer, a side dish, or even a main dish!

I know it’s still Healthy January/Whole30 Day 18, but I wanted to share a “fun” recipe to help you remember that healthy food can still be delicious! Also, I prepared a few treats before my Whole30 began to share in a few weeks, so look out for those! (Think raspberry chocolate bark, Valentine’s Day crepes, and Paleo & Vegan chocolate chip cookies!)

Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Scrub the sweet potatoes and prick them all over with a fork. Wrap each potato in aluminum foil and bake in the preheated oven for 60 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, saute the green chile and onion together over medium heat in a drizzle of oil until caramelized. Season lightly with salt.
  3. Combine the cooked chile and onion in a large bowl with the turkey, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Shape the meat mixture into 12-14 patties.
  4. Cook the patties in a skillet over medium heat in a drizzle of oil for 4-5 minutes, or until browned. Flip and repeat.
  5. Slice the cooked sweet potatoes into rounds, being careful not to smash the flesh. Scrape up any drippings from the sausage and add a little more oil to the skillet. Cook the sweet potatoes in the skillet until caramelized, about 3 minutes per side.
  6. Top each sweet potato slice with a sausage patty and avocado. Sandwich with a second sweet potato slice. Serve.
