Sooo it's April! This is the first year that I'm not like "when did that happen?? APRIL?" Probably because of all the nights I spent bargaining with God "just get me to spring- just let me survive the world's coldest longest most miserable iciest snowiest winter please and I'll never complain about weather again pleasepleaseplease just get me to spring".
Fitmencook instagrammed a picture of turkey sliders on sweet potatoes so I immediately had to try this and omggg it was delicious!! The sweet potato taste was perfect with these spunky little turkey sliders!
*WAIT BUT FIRST: Obviously I LOVE good deals on clothes- head over to Belle in Boots because she is hosting a linkup for stylish people selling their own clothes! I just bought a dress and a shirt for pretty much $0. Lots of bloggers are participating so there is a variety of sizes/colors/styles/brands. Basically like thrift shopping ONLINE. What else can you ask for?
Prep Time: 15 mins
Cook Time: 30 mins
Servings: 10 sliders
- 1 sweet potato, sliced with a mandolin ($.80)
- 2 teaspoons olive oil/coconut oil
- 1 lb lean ground turkey ($4.00)
- 1/2 onion, minced ($.50)
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 1/2 large green bell pepper, diced ($.50)
- 1 egg
- 1/2 cup old fashioned oats
- 1 teaspoon + 1 teaspoon sea salt
- 1 teaspoon black pepper
- 1 Tablespoon garlic powder
- 2 teaspoons red pepper flakes
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Toss the sweet potato slices with the oil, 1 teaspoon sea salt, black pepper, and half the garlic powder. Spread the coated sweet potato slices on a lined (with parchment paper or non stick spray) baking sheet- there should only be one layer! Do not stack them on top of each other!
Combine the turkey, onion, garlic, pepper, egg, oats, other half of sea salt, other half of garlic powder, and pepper flakes in bowl and mix well. Form small patties (I judged the size based on the size of my sweet potato slices).
Put the sweet potato slices into the oven and cook for 20 minutes, flipping after 10 minutes.
While the sweet potato slices are baking, cook the turkey patties over medium-high heat, covered, for 8-10 minutes on each side.
Now make little sweet potato-bunned sliders and enjoy! I didn't even use any condiments, I loved them plain!
OMG and while these were finishing cooking I finished reading Where'd You Go, Bernadette - MUST READ! Has anyone else read it? The twists! The end! It really got me thinking. What a great book!
