  • 3 pounds ground turkey 85% lean
  • 1 tbsp dried sage
  • 1 tbsp dried thyme
  • 2 tsp garlic salt
  • 2-3 sweet potatoes medium sized


  1. Wash, dry and freeze sweet potatoes overnight.

  2. Bake frozen sweet potatoes at 425 for 1 hour 15 minutes. (Do this ahead of time to allow time to cool.) Do NOT prick the skin.

  3. Allow to cool.

  4. Mix ground turkey and seasonings together.

  5. Squeeze the sweet potato mush out of the peels and add to meat mixture.

  6. When mixed well form into patties.

  7. Heat up skillet (medium heat) and add a drizzle of avocado oil to the pan.

  8. Add meat patties to hot skillet (I used cast iron) and cook on each side 5-10 minutes depending temperature of your stove. If using stainless steel, lower temp to medium low and aim for the longer cook time.

  9. Slice through one patty to make sure the meat is cooked all the way.

  10. Serve with eggs, roasted veggies, home fries or fruit!
