Sweet Sliders

In a mad rush to make dinner last night, I was hunting and gathering through my refrigerator and came up with some sliders for dinner.  Now instead of using bread for the buns, I used sliced and roasted sweet potatoes.  For the burgers I used ground bison that I had bought the day before.  As I was making them, I thought they would make a perfect party appetizer or an easy quick snack to make.


  • 1 lb ground bison or beef
  • 1 large sweet potato
  • 1 med. tomato
  • 1/2 avocado
  • olive oil, salt, pepper

Directions for sweet potato “buns”

  • pre-heat oven to 425°F
  • slice sweet potatoes to 1/4″ thick
  • place on baking sheet in single layer and drizzle with olive oil, salt, and pepper
  • bake for about 15-20 mins until browned, flip and bake until other side is browned and crisp

Directions for burgers:

  • form burgers into 3-4 oz patties, I got 5 burgers out of the batch,
  • season liberally with salt and pepper
  • cook on high heat in skillet for 3-4 mins and flip until desired doneness is reached

Assembly Direction:

  • place largest slices of potatoes on a tray
  • place burgers on each slice
  • top burger with tomato and avocado
  • top off with another sweet potato slice

The sweet potatoes should be somewhat crisp but not like a chip.  You want it to hold up to the weight of the burger but you want to be able to take a bit out of it with ease.
