Guacamole Burgers with Roasted Sweet Potatoes

Loaded with guacamole and paired with roasted sweet potatoes, this burger packs a nutritional punch and it tastes amazing. It doesn’t hurt that it’s done and served in 30 minutes.


They say the only thing that doesn’t change is the change itself. Though sometimes I find it hard to keep up, the latest change in our life has been a welcome one. On the last day of 2016, my husband accepted a position in a beautiful resort in Manchester Village, Vermont, which meant that for the next couple of months – we focused on quick weeknight meals, and trying not to complicate our cooking too much.


It takes about 30 minutes to make this recipe. I would recommend starting with roasting the potatoes and the onion as it is what takes the longest. While that is happening, you can make the guacamole and then cook the patties. It is that simple and easy to make. I have never paired roasted sweet potatoes with a burger before, but now after eating these I think it is a favorite combination in our house now.

For the side:

  • 1 sweet potato (peeled and sliced into 1/2 –inch thick slices (as shown in the photos))
  • 1/2 red onion (sliced thinly)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • salt and pepper

For the Guacamole:

  • ½ red onion (chopped)
  • 1 ripe avocado (mashed)
  • 1 jalapeno pepper (deseeded and chopped)
  • 1 lime (sliced)
  • salt and pepper

For the Burger:

  • 10 ounces ground beef
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 tablespoon of olive (or vegetable oil)
  • 2 sesame seed buns (sliced in half)


  1. To make the Roasted Sweet Potatoes: Preheat the oven to 450 F degrees. Place the slices of potatoes and red onion on a sheet pan. Drizzle it with olive oil, ½ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon black pepper. Toss thoroughly to coat and bake 16-18 minutes or until the sweet potato slices are tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven and set it aside.
  2. To make the guacamole: Mix together the red onion, avocado, jalapeno pepper, a tablespoon of lime-juice in a bowl. Stir in ¼ teaspoon salt and a pinch of black pepper. Taste for seasoning, and if necessary, add more lime juice and seasoning.
  3. To make the burgers:
  4. Place the ground beef in a bowl. Season with ¼ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon black pepper. Mix and then divide it into two equal pieces. Using your hands, form the mixture into two ½-inch thick patties. Transfer to a plate.
  5. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add the patties; cook 2 to 4 minutes per side, or until browned and cooked to your desired degree of doneness. Place it on a plate and cover it loosely with aluminum foil to keep warm.
  6. Add the buns, cut sides down, to the skillet. If the buns look dry, feel free to add a tablespoon of oil. Toast for 1-2 minutes, or until lightly browned.
  7. To assemble: Place the bottom buns on a plate and top them with the cooked patties and guacamole. Complete the burgers with the top buns.
  8. To serve: Transfer the burgers to a plate and serve them along with the roasted sweet potatoes and onions and lime wedges on the side.
