Delicious recipe today! Like really, I think this may be one of my favorite recipes I’ve ever posted… and that’s saying a lot!
Spicy sweet potato burgers with onion slaw! A little spicy. A little sweet, and a bit of tang! All the good things balanced into one thing!
-2 large sweet potatoes
-1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
-1/3 cup flour
-1/8 cup sriracha hot sauce
-1 tsp paprika
-1 tsp onion powder
-1/4 tsp seasoning salt
-olive oil for cooking
For the onion slaw:
-1 medium sweet onion, sliced
-About 1/2 head of nappa cabbage
-1/2 cup Sour Cream
-Salt & Pepper to taste
Wash your sweet potatoes and pierce each one on all sides with a fork. Bake in the microwave for 6 minutes. Flip over the potatoes and bake for 6 more minutes. Remove them from the microwave and slice them open. Allow them to cool for a bit until they are easier to handle.
Scoop out the flesh of the potatoes into a bowl. Mash them until they are smooth. Add the egg and mix thoroughly. Add the remaining ingredients and mix. Place the mixture in the fridge for about a half hour. I found this made forming the patties so much easier!
While the mixture is cooling, prepare the onion slaw. Slice the onion and cabbage so they are roughly the same sized slices. Heat some olive oil in a pan and add the onion. Saute it for a minute or two before adding the cabbage. Cook until the veggies are tender, adding salt and pepper to taste. Remove to a bowl and mix in the sour cream. Set aside until the burgers are done.
Use about 1/4 cup of the mixture to form balls. This mixture is kind of sloppy, so I decided this was much easier than making patties.
Heat some olive oil in a frying pan. Place one of the balls into the heated oil. Allow it to fry for a few seconds before using a spatula to smash it down into a patty about 1/4″ thick. This method really helped the patties hold their form. Cook the patty on one side for two or three minutes, then gently flip it over and cook the other side. Remove to a plate covered with a paper towel to drain off excess oil. Add more olive oil to the skillet before you repeat with each of the mixture balls.
Assemble each burger by placing a patty on a bun followed by some sliced avocado. Top with a generous portion of onion slaw.
Yum!!! Hope you guys love it as much as I do! It would be a great dinner for meatless Monday!
