👉 Here's what you'll need:


  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 1 small sweet potato, cooked and mashed (about 1 cup)
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 red onion, finely diced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Burger buns, lettuce, tomato, etc for serving
Just a nice simple mix of real, whole food ingredients - no crazy extras needed! ;)


  1. In a large bowl, mix together the ground turkey, mashed sweet potato, egg, breadcrumbs, onion, garlic, paprika, cumin and a generous pinch of salt and pepper until fully combined. Don't over-mix.
  2. Divide and shape the mixture into 4-5 equal sized patties, about 1/2 inch thick.
  3. Cook the patties in a skillet or grill pan with a little oil over medium heat for 5-6 minutes per side until golden brown and cooked through.
  4. Toast your burger buns and load them up with the patties, lettuce, tomato, maybe a smear of mustard or chipotle mayo! Get creative with toppings.
