Sweet Potato Burgers

I am so proud of this meal! It came to me in a vision of pure awesomeness. Instead of meat or black bean stuff, I grilled sweet potatoes for that patty in burgers. So good!

This was the most beautiful burger I have ever seen. I was talking to a friend on the phone when I while assembling the burger and stopped dead in the middle of the conversation to say I was super excited for dinner. The amount of color involved in the burger just blew my mind. It was absolutely delicious! And for fries, I baked up zucchini fries. Definitely, we will have this for dinner again.

*Edit* Here are the requested recipes in full.

Sweet Potato Burger

sweet potato
red onion
hamburger buns
chipotle mayo

Rinse and clean all produce. Slice potato, tomato, and onion. Heat skillet/grill to medium/medium high. Place potato slices on skillet and cook until soft on both sides. Remove from skillet. Place onion on skillet and cook until soft/translucent.

Put the burger together as you like. This really is a delight. My family ate it twice already with rave reviews from Husband both times.

Baked Zuchinni Fries
found here

3 medium zucchini sliced into 3" x 1/2" sticks
1 large egg white
1/3 cup seasoned bread crumbs
2 tbsp grated Pecorino Romano cheese (can be found in the spaghetti sauce aisle next to Parmesan cheese)
cooking spray
1/4 tsp garlic powder
fresh pepper

Preheat oven to 425°.
In a small bowl, beat egg whites and season with salt and pepper. In a ziplock bag, place breadcrumbs, garlic powder and cheese and shake well. Spray cookie sheet with cooking spray and set aside.
Dip zucchini sticks into eggs then into bread crumb and cheese mixture, a few at a time and shake to coat. Place the breaded zucchini in a single layer and spray more cooking spray on top. Bake at 425° for about 20-25 minutes, or until golden brown. Serve with 1/2 cup marinara sauce for dipping
