  15. Wild Arugula. tomatoes, ketchup, mustard, etc. for preferred garnish

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Spray a baking sheet with Pam. Place sliced sweet potatoes evenly on the baking sheet and cook in oven for 20 minutes, or until tender. Remove and set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, mix the ground turkey with all of dry ingredients. Once fully incorporated, mix in all of the wet ingredients.
  4. Shape turkey burger patties into small sliders. You want them to be able to fit nicely on the sweet potato "buns." Heat olive on in a large sauce pan, and cook turkey burger on the stove, or on a grill if you prefer to get nice grill marks.
  5. Once burgers are fully cooked, layer your burgers with garnish you prefer and enjoy!
