Now that we know the two teams competing for the whole enchilada I feel like I can really get into the spirit of the Big Game.  Many of you know that I have been preparing for this game by offering up some fantastic recipes and cocktails to serve at your watch party.  While some of  these recipes are delicious, ooey gooey, and down right cute, they may leave out some of your more health conscience guest who may be holding tight to their New Year’s resolution diets! With today’s recipe I decided to switch to something a bit lighter without sacrificing flavor and sticking to the Big Game theme. With the help of French’s Ketchup these sweet potato bacon and beef sliders are filling, juicy, and all natural.

Inspired by French’s use of real ingredients free from high fructose corn syrup, artificial colors and flavors, preservatives, and GMOs,  I headed to Walmart and snagged a bottle to be the starting quarterback for my recipe.

Instead of a traditional bun, for these sliders I went with sweet potatoes.  Brushed with  olive oil and sea salt and roasted in the oven for 30 minutes, these sweet potato rounds are the perfect substitute to a bun that is loaded with carbs.

In the middle of roasting, flip each round on the other side and continue to cook. You will know they are finished roasting when you see that they are lightly browned on the sides and soft in the middle.

Create mini patties with ground beef (I used grass-fed) to prepare to be cooked in a pan.

Prior to cooking the patties I cooked a few pieces of bacon and set aside.  I used that same pan with the bacon grease and all when cooking my mini patties.  I cooked mine for about 5 minutes on each side but you can cook yours based on how done you like it #yolo

Plate your sliders by placing the beef patty on the sweet potato rounds, topped French’s Ketchup and bacon pieces.  Garnish with chopped green onion.

Add a little flair perfect for a Big Game party  with football themed decorations!  These  touchdown decorations were found at my local craft store in the floral department and also make these sliders easier to grab.

    Great idea! I would have never thought to use sweet potatoes rather than a bun for sliders, but I love it!! [client]

      Thanks for checking it out! Using the sweet potato is surprisingly more hearty then you would think! It’s a great substitute for a bun.
