Cajun Burgers with Sweet Potato Buns


  • 1 lb Laura's 92% Lean ground beef
  • 6 tbsps extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 green pepper (thinly sliced)
  • 1/4 large onion (thinly sliced)
  • 1/2 cup celery (thinly sliced)
  • 1/2 tbsp fresh garlic (minced)
  • 3 1/2 tbsps Cajun seasoning
  • 2 sweet potatoes
  • 4 tbsps tomato paste
  • 1 tsps water
  • 1 tsp white vinegar
  • 1/2 tbsp honey
  • salt & pepper (to taste)
  • Prep Time: 10 Minutes
  • Cook Time: 15 Minutes
  • Total Time: 25 Minutes


1. Preheat grill on high for 10 minutes.

2. In a large frying pan, heat the olive oil on medium-high. Add the pepper, onion, celery and garlic. Cook for 7 minutes, stirring frequently until soft and golden brown. Lower the heat to keep warm.

3. Combine the Laura's Lean 92% ground beef, 3 tbsps Cajun seasoning and salt in a large bowl and mix evenly. Form into 3 separate 3/4 inch patties. Lightly brush each side with olive oil.

4. Once the grill is preheated, put the burgers on the grill and cook for 4 minutes. Flip once and cook an additional 4 minutes. Transfer to a plate, cover to keep warm and let rest.

5. Make 8 slices out of the middle of the sweet potato, about 1/4 inch thick. Place them into a large microwave-safe bowl and add a little water. Cover and microwave until they begin to soften, only about 2 minutes. Drain the water and pat the potatoes dry with a paper towel.

6. Brush each side of the sweet potato slices with the oil and grill for 4 minutes, until char marks form. Flip and cook an additional 4 minutes.

7. While the sweet potato slices cook, mix all the ketchup ingredients: 4 tbsps tomato paste, 1 tsp water, 1 1/2 tsp Cajun seasoning, 1 tsp white vinegar, 1/2 tablespoon honey, salt & pepper to taste.

To Serve:

Coat the ketchup across all 8 of the sweet potato slices, add the veggies and enjoy!
