Turkey Burger and Sweet Potato Chips

I got this recipe from Oxygen Magazine online and it was TOO good and easy to not share it. It's a great dinner recipe and serves two people! I know I'm a sucker for Sweet Potato fries/chips. I think the only thing it needs is avocado slices on top and it's PERFECT! 

Uh YUM right?! 

Turkey Burger and Sweet Potato Chips
Ready in 30 minutes • Makes 2 servings          


  • Non-stick olive oil spray
  • 1 medium sweet potato, sliced thinly (1/8" thick slices)
  • Sea salt, to taste (optional)
  • 8 oz lean ground turkey
  • ¼ cup salsa, divided
  • 4 slices tomato
  • 2 Romaine lettuce leaves
  • 2 whole-grain, thin burger buns, toasted or just use lettuce wraps!


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Lightly spray a baking sheet with olive oil spray. Spread sweet potato slices on baking sheet and lightly sprinkle with sea salt, if desired. Bake 20 to 25 minutes until cooked through, stirring once halfway through. Add salt and rosemary for better taste! 
  2. Meanwhile, lightly spray a large sauté pan with olive oil spray. Mix ground turkey with 2 tablespoons of salsa, divide in half and form each half into a patty. Cook patties over medium-high heat until lightly browned on one side (approximately 4 minutes). Flip burgers over and continue cooking until done, approximately 3 more minutes. Or use the grill! You can also buy pre made turkey burgers, but doing it this way ensures there's no additives or sneak ingredients like SOY! 
  3. On half of each bun, place a lettuce leaf and 2 tomato slices; place burgers on the opposite bun and top with remaining salsa (1 tablespoon each). Place lettuce and tomato side on top of burger and salsa and serve immediately with the sweet potato chips.
