I finally made these sweet potato burgers.
They were super YUMMY!! Even the Complainiacs ate them without complaining! And they complain about 99% of what they eat, no matter who makes it, what’s in it, they’ll find something to complain about. Li’l C ate very slowly & reluctantly. Everyone who knew what the burgers were made of was forbidden to tell The Complainiacs. Big C ate his burger with no problem. The Baker, who knew what they were made of, liked them (she had seconds!) & she doesn’t like yams or sweet potatoes unless they’re tempura’d. Li’l C didn’t want to eat because he didn’t know what the burgers were made of. He thought he could get out of eating his (even before taking a bite) by saying it was “meat night”. His expression showed that he was trying to discern any flavours he didn’t like so he could complain. But he couldn’t! I could see that he WANTED to complain but couldn’t find a reason. When he finished his burger, I told him what the secret ingredient was. He didn’t have seconds.
He is the only one! I will definitely be making these again. I doubled the amount of flour & mixed some panko in with the yam/bean mixture to make it easier to form into patties. I used pink kosher salt, black pepper & 21 Seasoning Salute (from Trader Joe’s) instead of the lemon pepper seasoning.
I highly recommend this recipe!
