wahhhhlahhhhh my two favorites combined as one!!! I LOVE breakfast. I LOVE burgers. Plus nothing beats a nice egg yolk atop a juicy burger. And sweet potatoes are good with everything too. Okay, you get it, this is delicious.
I had my first breakfast burger at Blooming Beets when I was visiting CU Boulder back in the Spring, and it was life changing. THEIR SWEET POTATOES ARE LIFE CHANGING. I need the secret recipe. All I know is they slow roast them for like four hours and they caramelize and ARE SO GOOD. If you’re ever in Colorado, you have to stop here. It’s amazing: a paleo peeps heaven.
Update on my life (if you care lol):
I just opened up an in-home allergy free bakery! I’m so excited to offer the people in my community healthy desserts because they’re so rare to find around here. As of now, I’m just staying in the Central Nebraska area, but if you’re interested in me shipping you anything go ahead and shoot me an email and I’ll see what I can do! If you want more information on my little biz, check out my “Bakery & Catering” tab at the top of the page!
serves: 4 prep time: 5 minutes cook time: 30 minutes
For the burgers:
- 1 lb. ground pork (beef or turkey can work too!)
- 1 teaspoon sea salt
- 1 teaspoon dried sage
- 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper*
- 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes*
*Omit for AIP or nightshade free
- 4 eggs
- optional: seasoning such as salt, pepper, old bay, or flavor god
- 4 slices of bacon (one for each burger, otherwise use 8 slices: 2 for each burger)
- 1 avocado, sliced
- Two handfuls of spinach
- 1-2 sweet potatoes (enough for 8 slices or “buns”)*
- Coconut oil, for greasing
Note: If there is a topping that you don’t like or don’t have, feel free to omit it. Your burger will still be super delicious!
- Preheat oven to 400°F
- Cut the sweet potato into ∼1cm thick slices (have at least 8 slices) and coat the slices in coconut oil, place on a baking sheet, and put in the oven for 30 minutes, flipping at 15 minutes.
- Combine all the ingredients for the burgers and separate into four different patties. Cook on a stovetop or on the grill over medium high heat.
- Cook the bacon in a pan or skillet.
- Heat a separate pan over medium heat and add coconut oil. Add the spinach until wilted, then remove.
- Add more coconut oil to the pan and crack the four eggs into it, cooking them sunny side up.
- Once the sweet potatoes are finished cooking, you’re ready to layer your burger. I like to go sweet potato, burger, spinach, bacon, avocado slices, egg, then another sweet potato slice, but anything works. Enjoy! :)
