Servings 2 servings
- 1 large sweet potato peeled and sliced into matchstick-thin slices
- Sea salt
- 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper or to taste
- Cooking oil spray
- 1/2 pound lean ground turkey
- 1 egg lightly beaten
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
- 1 teaspoon Old Bay seasoning
- 1 red bell pepper chopped
- 2 slices cheddar cheese or pepperjack cheese, optional but delicious
- 2 hamburger buns toasted, preferably whole wheat
- Ketchup or hot sauce
Preheat the oven to 400°F and grease a cookie sheet.
Arrange the sweet potato slices in one layer on the sheet and sprinkle with sea salt and cayenne. Spray fries with vegetable oil spray and bake for 30 minutes, turning each fry over midway through baking.
In a large bowl, combine the turkey, egg, salt, Old Bay seasoning, and bell pepper. Mix thoroughly either with your hands or with a spoon until everything comes together and is combined well. Form into two even patties.
Cook the burgers in a nonstick skillet over moderate heat until cooked through, about 7 minutes per side. Top each with a slice of cheese and cook two minutes longer, allowing the cheese to melt.
Remove from heat and serve on toasted buns, topped with desired accompaniments. Serve with hot sweet potato fries and plenty of ketchup and hot sauce.
