Crispy Sweet Potato Turkey Burger

Sweet Potato Turkey Burger

This Sweet Potato Turkey Burger recipe is a must-make! These sweet potato turkey burgers were so moist and full of flavour, I made nine burgers, and less than 12 hours later, there were only two left in my house. So, I am making them again tomorrow night!

Sometimes when you use ground turkey breast, your burgers can turn out like hockey pucks, but by adding the sweet potato into the patty, it locked in the moisture and made these burgers almost melt in your mouth like a “real” juicy burger! I topped my burger with Havarti Cheese, optional, and avocado.

This sweet potato turkey burger is hearty burger you can try when in need of a low-fat diet. I love making these when I want a crunch when eating a turkey burger.
