Foodie Friday: Paleo Sweet Potato Sliders


Welcome back to our weekly Foodie Friday link up! I’m linking up with Farrah from Fairyburger, Esther from Chocolate Runner Girl and Jess from Hello to Fit.  Also, make sure you hop around to check out all the amazing recipes in this link up and feel free to add your recipes as well! 

Going get right to it today and cut straight to the deliciousness because today we are dishing up BURGERS! 

When you think of burgers you might think of summertime and firing up the grill but these little burgers that I’ve prepared for you today are perfect for fall and FOOTBALL!  PALEO SWEET POTATO

 I think I’ve made it pretty clear over the course of my last few posts that I am bit football obsessed so forgive me for the next several months as I shift my foodie focus to football friendly treats! 

I actually made these little mini meat nuggets in a muffin tin and baked them in the oven.  No only does it help to portion them out and make them the perfect size for the sweet potato discs but it’s an easy way to make a bunch all at once!

My idea was to originally make these little sliders with gluten free buns but then it occurred to me that mini gluten free buns do not exist and I am not talented enough to bake my own.  The solution? baked sweet potato discs dusted with some cajun spice…can you say YUM?!

These little paleo burgers turned out a lot better than I had even expected and even though they’re mini, they are PACKED with flavor especially with the addition of sliced tomatoes and avocado.
