Jessi Link_Second Day Burger_HamamaRecipes_9.11.19



- 1 large sweet potato chopped into wedges
- 2 TBSP olive oil divided
- 16 oz ground turkey
- 1 cup green onion chopped
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1 tsp onion powder
- 1/4 tsp cayenne
- 1 tsp cumin
- 8 leaves romaine lettuce
- 1/2 medium red onion sliced
- 1 roma tomato or plum tomato, sliced
- 1 avocado for garnish




  1. Preheat the oven to 400 F.
  2. Toss the potato wedges in a bowl with the olive oil and salt and pepper to taste. Add cayenne or crushed red pepper, to taste, if you like them spicy! Transfer to a baking sheet prepped with foil or cooking spray (up to you) and bake for 30 mins, flipping halfway.
  3. In a big bowl, combine the ground turkey, green onion, salt and pepper, onion powder, cumin and cayenne (add any other spices you like here to mix it up!). Mix until combined, then form patties with your hands. I made 4 pretty big ones.
  4. Heat a skillet over a medium flame for 2-3 minutes, then add the oil and let it heat up for 1-2 mins. Then add the patties. Let them cook about 7-9 minutes on each side. I had to flip mine a few times and it took longer than I thought.
  5. Assemble: place the patties on the lettuce, stack the red onion and tomato next to them, then add the potato wedges. Let cool for 30 mins before placing in the fridge. Eat within 4 days and top with your garnishes and sauce before eating!
