Nutrition Facts: 334 calories / 30g carbs / 25g protein / 11.5g fat
For the patties:
- 1 lb (453g) 90% lean ground beef
- 1 ½ tablespoons jerk seasoning
For the burgers:
- 2 large sweet potatoes (ends discarded, using the center portions only, about 540g)
- 1 cup (85g) broccoli slaw
- 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
- 1 tablespoon whole grain Dijon mustard
- Salt and pepper
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil and spray with non-stick cooking spray.
- Peel sweet potatoes. Using the middle (widest) center section of each potato, slice eight ½-inch rounds (each round is about 65g) and place on the prepared baking sheet. Spray the sweet potato rounds with nonstick spray.
- Bake for 15 minutes, flip, and bake for another 10-15 minutes or until cooked through but not mushy.
- Meanwhile, make the burgers by combining the ground beef and jerk seasoning in a medium bowl. Divide evenly into four 4-oz balls and gently form into patties with your hands.
- While the sweet potatoes are baking, cook the burgers on the grill or in a skillet over medium-high heat for 4-6 minutes per side, or until they reach your desired level of doneness. Sprinkle with additional jerk seasoning if desired.
- Make the broccoli slaw by tossing together the broccoli slaw, vinegar, and mustard. Season generously with salt and pepper.
- Assemble the burgers by topping a sweet potato round with a burger patty, about ¼ cup of slaw, and topping with another sweet potato round. Repeat to make 4 burgers in total.
- This broccoli slaw is also delicious enjoyed as a side rather than a topping, since these burgers can be messy to eat! The slaw has almost 0 macros, so feel free to leave it out if you like – the macros for the meal will remain the same.
- Other delicious topping ideas: grilled onions, sliced tomato, grilled pineapple, or avocado (macros not included.)
- Save the ends and other offcuts from the sweet potatoes (that you don’t use for the rounds) to cook for another meal. They are delicious diced and roasted or steamed!
