Sweet Potato Burgers Avocado Salsa and Garlic Spread #RSC

"Ready, Set, Cook! Reynolds Wrap Contest Entry. As summer winds down and tailgate season heats up I wanted to create a recipe reminiscent of grilling out as we moved into fall! Sweet potatoes are such a fall food for my family and I love putting a healthy spin on a plain old burger with this unique recipe!"

  1. One word.....fantastic!
  2. My friend shared this recipe with me last night - looks awesome! I would go with the black beans over the white beans, just for preference!
  3. I like the idea of a sweet potato burger, definitely a fall dish but the avacado and corn salsa keep everything light and fresh with the honey garlic cream sauce, not too heavy! Can't wait to taste them again next time I make them. Great idea and great recipe!
  4. I gave this recipe 3 stars because the concept was good. But nowhere does it say to drain the beans and because it has very little moisture in it I did not!!!! WRONG they came out mushy ! Also what temperature to cook them on? In order to dry them out I used med high-they burned Hubby said they were alittle bland and because I only used half of the recipe and I plan on adding some stuffing to the mushy mess tonight in hopes of correcting it.
  5. Yummylicious!
