Turkey… and sweet potato… burgers???

I cannot put into words how much I love these things.  It sounds like an unlikely duo, but sweet potatoes and turkey are definitely a match made in Flavor Heaven.  Not going to keep gushing – you just gotta try them yourselves:

I used the following to make 8 4oz patties:

  • 1.5lbs of 99% lean turkey
  • 2.5 cups of grated (use the cheese grater – I know it’s going to suck but it’s worth it) sweet potatoes (It took me two good-sized sweet potatoes to yield that much.)
  • 2 tablespoons of minced garlic
  • black pepper
  • sea salt
  • cayenne pepper
  • oregano
  • (extra) I diced up 1 habanero and added it for a great spicy kick
  1. In a mixing bowl, dump your turkey in there
  2. Add garlic, black pepper, sea salt, a light dusting of cayenne pepper and a dusting of oregano (+1 habanero, if you so dare)
  3. Add the sweet potato
  4. Mix it up
  5. Measure it out into 4oz patties
  6. Throw them puppies on the grill

I topped mine with a slice of white cheddar (30 calories) and then found that if you eat this burger on a Hawaiian roll (100 calories), it actually highlights the sweetness of the potatoes in the patty.

Nutritional Info:

  • 2.5 cups of grated sweet potatoes is 285 calories – 5.25g of protein
  • 1lb of 99% lean ground turkey is 480 calories – 104g of protein

If you make 8 patties from that, each 4oz patty comes out to about 96 calories / 13g protein.

  1. Works quite well and cleans up is easy. My only down comment is that the shredded cheese it produces is very fine. I’d prefer it a little thicker and there are no blades to change to accomplish that.

  2. This is a nice comparison of box graters, and I’m glad you also included some 6-sided models (I didn’t even know they existed), as well as box sets. I am about ready to replace my basic model, and I will buy one that grips the counter or whatever else I put it on, since I’m tired of mine slipping. I think the box sets are interesting, since I don’t have a mandolin, and I also think being able to put them in a drawer is helpful, but I’m pretty clumsy, so these could get dangerous.
